We don't have a regular Timeline for this week as most of our spoilers came from vidcap analysis.
 
So based on those, here is our SPEC'd Timeline!
 
Depart after an extended PitStop
.
Make your way to {{spec'd}} Ton Pariwat (??) wildlife sanctuary
 
Active Route Marker: both teams ride elephants through the forest
 
Speedbump: Liz and Marie must wash an elephant
 
RB: Find a wrapped bundle in a waterfall/pool and do ( unknown) what with it   
    Seen doing this: Andy and Marcus
 
RB 2: Collect all the pieces needed to build a spirit house, and then take them to and assemble them at Chateau's unnamed wat!
    Seen doing this: Tommy
 
(somewhere in all that  (?) >>ride a jitney)
 
Take a looooong 15 hour bus ride to Bangkok.

Liz and Marie do not have enough money for a taxi ride
 
Fearing they have broken the rules, one team takes a risk that could cost them the Race.      
     {{spec by Chateau}} That this involves "first-class fares"
 
In Bangkok:
  Jeremy/ Sandy are lost in Bangkok while Ernie/Cindy are lost in translation, something regarding      the taxi driver refusing their US dollars.,.
 
 All teams must feed the fish in the Bangkok Noi canal of "Wat Srisudaram" to receive their next clue...to the PITSTOP ???
 
Pitstop: Unknown...but teams seen near The Grand Palace (thanks Kartvelophile )
 
Quote
The Grand Palace has an area of 218,400 sq. metres and is surrounded by walls built in 1782. The length of the four walls is 1,900 metres. Within these walls are situated government offices and the Chapel Royal of the Emerald Buddha besides the royal residences.

They're standing at the Phuket bus terminal (compare the signs in the background; for some reason Mapjack linking isn't working). The bus goes south to Hatyai; maybe the elephant ride is close/enroute?

Wow good spot on the bus! I believe going through Hat Yai is either the only way or by far the quickest way to get to Bangkok. Hat Yai is southern Thailand's primary transport hub.

Also I'm willing to bet that one of the twins says the title quote in reference to the all the locals that will be staring at them!

You can experiment with different transport options at this site. The last 443 bus of the day is at 21:30 and the fare is about 11 USD. (Btw, "we have to get on that bus" is a VO; it's probably the 443 but they could be talking about the bus to Bangkok)

Hi...

I dont know if my speculations are accurate... i was wondering based on the map...

1. Traveling  from Ko Panyyi ( i don't think that this will be the starting line) ... to a bus station directly to hat yai... i think the nearest and easiest to go is in phangnga or krabi... if they will go to hat yai... cause it follows more directly than Phuket, but i think from phuket to hat yai is good... if you can imagine the map... they will travel by bus from phuket to hat yai in curving direction passing phangnga, near krabi, trang and into the songkhla region...

2. There might be possibilities that the starting line might be not in ko panyyi (either in phangnga or phuket)... or near to it in order to go to hat yai... racing to hat yai is about 150-200 miles either phangnga or phuket... if by bus... in boat... it is less than 180 miles...

3. Hat Yai - bangkok... by bus is about  450-500 miles....

4. And hat yai, songkhla to bangkok.. is way too cool... to travel.. from nearing the southernmost part to the more central part... with more curving direction...

5. The elephant transportation might be somewhere along Songkhla or northern part of krung thep... ( i just miss the Elephants in Chiang Mai... my favorite place)



however, it is just my speculation...

Thanks Amazing Racer!

We do believe teams travel by bus to Bangkok..... and the episode title sure says Bangkok.

But jungle/rain forest elephant riding sure isn't happening there!! :lol:

Interesting to see how fast and well production pulled these two legs off, due to the unexpected and last minute route change! A nice long bus ride for teams would buy them some time....

Oh... i think i fouond something in the net... i hope this will help...

Ahmm... i think my speculation might be this.... the Elephant Transportation might be in hat yai... where they will go to either a house or a temple or a group of people... before they will be in bangkok...  because the departure might be in the night time... to take a bus from phuket to hat yai...

Liz and Marie said in the preview said they couldn't afford to buy "another ticket" I think they may think they were not allowed to take a bus and got off because it looked like it was about to leave.

I'm afraid I can already see what this is referring to!   (:;)

Look at these bus schedules.  They often say 1st class, 2nd class, etc.  for the rides.  I bet the "fear" is that the TAR restriction on 1st class  air travel may have been misconstrued.   :duno:

A team could take the 1st class ride and somewhere en route decide to bail.   :groan:

From the bus station... There is an increase the chances that liz and marie... made a mistake because of the bus they take, getting a ticket in 1st class rather than the 2nd class... The bigger point there is.... How come Liz and Marie had problems in the money?... in my own side of my mind... i think it is in the bus station that they paid 1st class rather than 2nd class... and found out that they need to get a 2nd class bus, which if they will take the risk to get into that 1st class bus, that will a critical mistake... I think that their money for the Bangkok leg might be around $50-70....

I thought it had to do with the fact that they need to buy another ticket.

Wow good spot on the bus! I believe going through Hat Yai is either the only way or by far the quickest way to get to Bangkok. Hat Yai is southern Thailand's primary transport hub.

Baloney! I beg to differ with that judgment. Just look at a road map of Thailand. Hat Yai is quite east and a little south of Phuket. It takes 6 hours by bus to get from Phuket to Hat Yai and when you arrive you are farther from Bangkok. From Hat Yai to Phuket you take route 4 through Krabi and then continue on route 4 mostly west to Phuket. From Phuket you go north on route 4 and continue in that direction or branch off to other routes going north (such as 44).

So, I do not quarrel with your statement that Hat Yai is southern Thailand's primary transport hub. However, nonstop buses from Phuket will not be routed that way.

There's a lot of stuff in that promo. Washing elephants is the twins' Speed Bump? And I'm also amazed as to how much the promos focus on Amani and Marcus.


This must be the roadblock but what is it? A bird house? :lol:
