I agree. Throwing them into China on the first leg is just plain mean. I expect a few meltdowns and horribly lost teams.  :yess:

Should be fun to watch.

A 24+ hour Chinese train ride would be a nice way to start Leg 2. :lol:

I hope after Shanghai, they go to a totally random Chinese remote city (by train) where NO ONE knows English to make teams cray-cray :lol:

I think Shanghai is not the first destination. Even if it is probably a second leg in a city which has a connecting flight to Laos.

What is this? ???

Shanghai IS the first destination as stated in spoilers.

China first huh? Reminds me of Season 10. Hopefully this season has a great leg route like that one.

I'm going to bitch about China being the first leg. Isn't that country completely overused?

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. China (including Hong Kong and Macau) has been included in 45% of Amazing Races and if you adjust for Ar8 and AR7 not circumnavigating it rises to 50%. Just look at Asia and the fact that you have to get across eastern Asia either westbound or eastbound. It makes sense to me for China to to be used a lot and so it is.

I watched all of China Rush, and never got tired of it! China is a big place with lots of wonderful spots!

I don't mind it either, but Shanghai all over again? When there are many other cities? I am thinking since China is so big it might be a double leg in the country.

That's what I'm hoping for too, as long as Leg 2 goes somewhere brand new. If it stays in Shanghai or goes somewhere we've seen two or three times already, like Hong Kong, I'll be very disappointed.

From Shanghai, Guangzhou is a long way (I am guessing off the top of my head about 500 miles),Beijing is about the same, Xian is over 1000 miles, Chongqing is probably about 1500 miles. AR21 may send them to one of those places, but I doubt it.

You've mistaken China with India.

Well, is it possibly that they are going to Suzhou, Hangzhou, or Nanjing?

I think Shanghai's a large enough city to justify three visits (much like how I feel about Tokyo even though they always seem to have poor legs there). Given that smaller/less populated areas already have (Phuket) or could easily have (Mekong Delta, Singapore) three visits, I don't see the fuss.

Completely agreed... :res:

If the rest of the route turns out to be a good one, then I won't mind the first leg being in China... :lol:

I just want new countries! Or at least some new cities! :lol:

But I will reserve my judgement until this leg airs! Even though TAR16 had two dull Shanghai legs, TAR6 had an awesome Shanghai leg, so maybe they can do it again. :duno:
1. Don't pick up the phone - You know he's only calling 'cause he's drunk and alone.
2. Don't let him in - You have to kick him out again.
3. Don't be his friend - You know you're gonna wake up in his bed in the morning.
And if you're under him, you ain't gettin' over him. ♥

Sure, anything is possible. My guess (it's no more than that) is not Beijing (been there, done that), Xian (too far), or Chongqing (too far). It could be somewhere closer.Suzhou is quite close to Shanghai and is a beautiful place according to what I understand. I do not understand what the attractions of Nanjing and Hangzhou are because I haven't studied them, but they are quite close to Shanghai. They will fir the criteria.
