Still looking for the Pit Stop hotel/Pit Start! At the start of Leg 11 we see Dave/Rachel crossing the street to get to Akbar Holidays (which is on the west side of MG Road), so that probably means they got off their taxi on the southbound lane, eliminating a lot of the waterways we need to look! Still can't match it up just yet though... :gaah:

Suspecting Cherai, but I don't have enough evidence?

And I found something else looking at the picture I posted previously, something we can watch at the PitStart on the leg when Rachel & Dave are opening the clue.
Looks like a match to me.

Well it really does look like a match to me also. It appears that the Cherai Beach Resort has two phases. The older one on the south (left) side and the new one on the north (right) side. Looks like the PitStart for leg 11 was in the northern side of the resort looking back towards the  south. The same in the interview scene with Art and JJ. There appears to be some kind of boat slip or boat channel between the to phases of the resort from the photos. This is not apparently in the satellite view on GE.

You can see the boat slip in the background of both the Art/JJ interview and the photo of the Pit Start with Rachel/Dave.

It does look quite close, but...
1. I can't find the Manichitrathazhu door in the other interviews or a closer picture of the railings (showing the right thing) to confirm Cherai Beach Resort.
2. There's a large concrete drain and a blue-roofed building in the Art/JJ screencap that can't be explained.
3. The shadow for Dave/Rachel's departure is in the wrong place. At 1.51pm their shadows should be pointing to the left hand side of the screen, not the right hand side (the lamppost has the clearest shadow). The image isn't flipped; Dave is wearing his watch on his (usual) left arm.
4. When you search "Manichitrathazhu" and "Cherai" you find exactly the kind of door we're looking for! It's a video game called "The Dark Hills of Cherai" though...

Found out that Neobie in Chinese means "f*king awesome"! No, really. Look it up!

I found some other pics of the railways of Cherai Beach Resort, much closer than the first; and I have to admit that you're probably right about your suspicions of not being this place as the PitStart.
