The preview makes me think this is going to have some elements of Season 1, Leg 11 which was a extremely physical leg in the same area. Don't know if they're repeating all the tasks from that memorable leg (and I wish they had), but I do get the impression it's got at least some of that included.

That might just be my favorite leg in season 1.

I hated TAR 1 Krabi though. The leg went absolutely nowhere, teams were ferried around in chartered boats, none of the tasks was culturally engaging, and nothing was tested except for physical skills (plus the bad hours of operation planning that defined the rest of the race).
Found out that Neobie in Chinese means "f*king awesome"! No, really. Look it up!

PHUKET LOVE <3



^^ Those umbrella stands are available on almost all the beaches so.... (I took that photo when I was in Phuket)

I believe they might have to go out to Phi Phi Island or go on an island hoping spree.

But... Phuket again? Why not visit other islands..... :duno:

The island being filmed by the helicopter is Koh Nom Sao.

http://www.bing.com/maps/?v=2&cp=jch4rds66zg6&lvl=16&dir=180&sty=b&eo=0&where1=Ko%20Panyi%2C%20Phangnga%2C%20Thailand&form=LMLTCC

There is a tiny island in the foreground, and the boats are docked in the same position which I'm inclined to believe is a fishing spot so I'm fairly confident this is our place. However, there seems to be very limited information on this island, so I'm wondering whether this beautiful island is unrelated and just filmed as a 'beauty shot'.

A short boat ride north takes us to Ko Panyi, famous for its Muslim fishing village, built entirely on stilts and set against a backdrop of a towering limestone cliff:

http://www.bing.com/maps/?v=2&cp=jcpdjws67rzy&lvl=17&dir=270&sty=b&eo=0&where1=Ko%20Panyi%2C%20Phangnga%2C%20Thailand&form=LMLTCC

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ko_Panyi

This rock climbing company lists the cliffs of Ko Panyi as one of its destinations: http://www.geckothailand.com/Panyi_climbing.html so it is likely to be where we see Bill rock climbing and also the village that we see the children running through earlier in the promo.

This has been discussed elsewhere, but Phil has been quoted as saying that the location for one leg this season had to be changed on the fly at the last minute. Apparently some natural disaster or civil unrest made a planned location unsafe. Speculation here on the board was that possibly it was due to rioting in Nepal around the time of the legs in Indonesia and good old comfortable and reliable Phuket was the last minute substitution. Certainly they are very familiar with Phuket and have contacts there, as well as previously planned tasks that could be set up on short notice. However, this is all speculative and we don't know for sure. I'm writing this from memory and I may have a detail or two wrong. There was one or two other possibilities for the changed leg as well.

AR1, episode 11 was in Beijing and featured the battle between Joe/Bill and Kevin/Drew, although it did depart from the Phuket International Airport because it is the major one for the entire area. I believe you mean AR1, leg 10 which was in Ao Luk, Chicken Island, Paiplong and Raile Beach near Krabi?

Yes. I meant to type 10. I.m typing on a tablet while my notebook is repaired (some of the keys only) and it.s difficult to fix typos as the on-Screen keys  are a.pain to work with.

Others did figure out which leg I meant; IIRC, Krabi isn't far from Phuket, and with those offahore islands, there is always a chance the teams might hav been close to Krabi.

To me, the rock climbing wall looked like the one from TARA 1, in Krabi.

Yes. We know that the change was made on or before June 23.

BOTH Thailand legs were apparently  substitutes, and last minute changes.

We believe that Nepal was planned, but due to weather and some other issues, had to be changed last minute...
 
Just adding this here to clarify why Phuket again...but further discussion on this should please go to spec on spoilers, okay?

Seeing as Bill and Cathi have spoken of their outdoors experience, I'm going to take the oppertunity and believe that the second sentence in the press release refers to them...

Wow, looks like they have to put together some kind of structure underwater? Or do they assemble it on the beach and then take it underwater?

I noticed all the T-joints on top of the frame, what do they seem to be putting in them here?






The title bar thing is a lifejacket strap :lol:
