This looks suspiciously like Southern Thailand doesn't it?
Found out that Neobie in Chinese means "f*king awesome"! No, really. Look it up!

It could also be southern China on the Li River near Guilin. Guilin showed up in AR14, episode 9.

I have the impression that TPTB are aiming towards having all clips in the opening credits be in HD format. That's why I think we have to basically limit identifications to last season or this season, unless we are certain of the location in the clip is from an earlier season.

This is between the boat in the river and the Copenhagen shot




These buildings are in Panama.  They are the same as #21 in Neobie's list.

The twin buildings in Panama are the San Francisco Bay - Torre 100 with 35 floors each.



Observing that it is a twin set of buildings very close together, and since it is not the tallest building in the city, and not the most well received construction, I suspect that that it has been selected to be a high wire task  :ascared for the Teams to cross from one building over to the other.

Can the pic of Ghent possibly indicate a double leg in Belgium?

Ghent is a very historic and interesting place to visit. I would love to go back there.

Any idea of good locations they might have visited? Any locations in particular that struck you as an "amazing race must visit" location?

I've been staring at this shot for a while and finally I see it:  Not a tight rope between them

Rappel ropes are in place hanging from each building!  :lol:

Could it be another window washing Roadblock like TAR6 in Shanghai?

It's been a few years since I visited Ghent, but here are its main attractions:
1. the rivers Scheldt and Lys, with canalboats running circuits up and down them
2. the view of the medieval architecture from on the river or the opposite bank; these are the Grasslei and Korenlei buildings
3. the universities (it has the largest concentration of university students in Belgium)
4. the Korenmarkt market area
5. eating the special Flemish dish Waterzooi made of freshwater fish or chicken, with carrots, leeks and potatoes, herbs, eggs, cream and butter
6. Gravensteen Castle
7. St. Bavo's Cathedral

This cap (probably Shiva) is near the end of the sequence. I don't remember it, but maybe it's a retread from Varanasi.

Thanks again kiki! You did a beautiful job!

I edited in a few extra angles of some of the shots, and the 2 or 3 left from the end. Great job!

I thought maybe the house BEHIND the statue in # 20 would help us....

Number 8 of kiki's post looks like Middelgrunden wind farm near Copenhagen harbour in Denmark.

#6 it's a relief from Borobudur, I think.

38.5

Could these be tibetan prayer flags? Although the colours are not exactly right.

Here is a picture for comparison.

I was thinking those may be the flags from the Sydney task?

No, those were all nautical flags, with distinct patterns on each one. These look fairly plain..
