if the people running down charlotte street were the amazing race, then my guess would be that the starting line is the City Botanic Gardens....  :ascared

but if it isnt then its probably just a local race  :'(

Not disagreeing, but statements like this are vastly improved by a link to the game info or other expanded information.

If we assume that that Legazpi is to be visited on the 19th, and we assume that the race hasn't started yet, I think we can guess that teams will be flying from Australia to the Philippines. I'm fairly certain that Manila is the only direct gateway from Australia, so here are the direct flights for the next couple of days.

Sydney
17 Nov - Qantas 19 - 11:40>19:00 (Stops in Brisbane)
18 Nov - Philippine 210 - 12:10>17:20

Brisbane
17 Nov - Qantas 19 - 13:10>19:00

Darwin
18 Nov - Jetstar 79 - 19:00>21:45

Melbourne
No direct flights

As you can see, Philippines is not a very well connected country, so I'm surprised that it is likely to be our first leg. It seems like teams might have to take connecting flights..

If it is Sydney on the 17th they will need to connect via HK or Singapore.

I like this one:

 
4:25 pm Depart Sydney (SYD)
Arrive Manila (MNL) 3:50 am  +1 day  Thu 17-Nov
Duration: 14hr 25mn    Qantas Airways 319 
  Philippine Airlines 506 
 Connect in Singapore (Changi)

Out likely endpoint airport is Legazpi. I would be very surprised if they arrived via any other means than air travel.

On the 17th, there are only 7 arrivals. The first six are at 7AM, 7.30AM, 9.10AM, 9.40AM, 12.35PM and 1.45PM and all come from Manila. The final flight is at 2.20PM and comes from Cebu, also a viable entry point if we assume teams will connect in South-East Asia.

On the 18th, we have an extra Manila flight at 9.25AM but no Cebu flight.

They had the option to take a bus to Legazpi in TARA too, so let us not count that out.

Is it possible that they'll have two legs here? Maybe in the capital city after Legazpi? :lol: I'm so jealous right now. :'(

The producers picked a very good week to start, as this is a pretty busy week in Australia. As you might or might not already know, the Presidents Cup, which is one of the more prestigious golf tournaments in the World is going on right now in Melbourne. It is probably the most prestigious golf tournament that Australia has held in at least the last 13 years, so this is a big deal for many Australians. I am not saying this had any effect on their decision of when to start, but it definitely doesn't hurt TAR by not having as many people out and about ready to spoil.

Anyway, I am glad that we are off.

As Peach pointed out, the Philippine Airlines flight is the only one from Sydney today. It departed an hour late and is currently estimated to arrive at 6.19pm.

We know that teams are supposed to be filming in Legazpi tomorrow, and there will be no more flights today from Manila after they land, so it is likely that they'll need to use an overnight bus to get there.

Hi guys! Peach just pmed me, and I'm based in Manila. Will they have a leg here? I probably won't be able to go to the airport because it's far away and my car is wrecked, but I'll see what I can do.

When will they arrive again?
