I was jumping up and down (well, all in my head! LOL :lol:) when I visited Amazing Race places during my trips in Macau, HK, Cambodia, Malaysia, and Singapore.

I'm just listing now, hopefully I get to upload pics here as well:

HONG KONG
Avenue of the Stars
Tien Tan Buddha
Wong Tai Sin Temple
rode the Ding Dings <3

MACAU
Senado Square
Templo de Ama
and Macau Tower
(I really need to revisit Macau)

CAMBODIA
Sad that I wasn't able to go to Chong Kneas side of the Tonle Sap...
Angkor Wat!!! (and the infamous Prasit Kothrong RB room!!!!)
The Bayon Temple
The Baphuon (TAR Oz 3)
Night Street Tarantulas (but never dared eat them)

MALAYSIA
Petronas Towers
Chow Kit Bomba (I was literally scouring the entire street as to where Charla/Mirna ate their cookies!!!)
Batu Caves (oh what fun remembering seeing Charla/Mirna descend those stairs in TAR All Stars spoilers!!)
Merdeka Square (TAR Asia 1)

SINGAPORE
The Merlion
The Fullerton Pavillon (I was actually expecting more from this... but yeah)
of course Ice Cream Sandwich in Orchard Road (which is surprisingly hard to find late at night)
Istana Park (slapped an imaginary U-Turn board ala Carol and Brandy)

I'd love to see the pictures, Cocoa! It always marvels me to see how places withstood TAR popularity or changed over the years.

Did you trek inside the Batu Caves?

So, on August 18th to 20th I went to Bandung and visited two locations on TAR23 Bandung leg.

I arrived on Bandung Train Station where teams received the Detour clue on Leg 9:



Then, I visited Curug Cimahi, the Pit Stop on Leg 10. What I didn't realized when I watched the airing was that teams actually had to go down 587 STEPS to reach the Pit Stop on the waterfall and there is no shortcut whatsoever... So, when they're going up after that, they had to climb the 587 STEPS again. :iok







After that, I went to Tangkuban Parahu Volcano (Leg 10), passed by Kawah Domas Crater entrance (the egg boiling Roadblock)



and visited the Kawah Ratu Crater (where teams received the Detour clue on Leg 10)

Glad you had fun in Bandung, Kam!
And 1174+ steps?! :o Curug Cimahi would be a great place to do a workout regimen. It's easy to say climbing down the stairs would be no sweat while watching from home, but I definitely eat my words when I see or hear about the actual magnitude of a place.
