I think this season will have a leg or two in India, China, and United Arab Emirates. They seem to love India in the race too.

Ideally I think it may be.

Leg 1 - (United States - > Australia)
Leg 2 - (Australia)
Leg 3 - (Australia -> Philippines)
Leg 4 - (Philippines -> Malaysia)
Leg 5 - (Malaysia -> China)
Leg 6 - (China -> India)
Leg 7 - (India -> United Arab Emirates)
Leg 8 - (United Arab Emirates)
Leg 9 - (United Arab Emirates -> Italy)
Leg 10 - (Italy -> Germany)
Leg 11 - (Germany)
Leg 12 - (Germany -> United States)

Or realistically

Leg 1 - (United States -> Australia)
Leg 2 - (Australia - > Japan)
Leg 3 - (Japan -> Cambodia)
Leg 4 - (Cambodia-> Laos)
Leg 5 - (Laos -> China)
Leg 6 - (China -> India)
Leg 7 - (India)
Leg 8 - (India -> United Arab Emirates)
Leg 9 - (United Arab Emirates -> Sweden)
Leg 10 - (Sweden -> Norway)
Leg 11 - (Norway)
Leg 12 - (Norway - United States)

I don't think these would be bad routes and realistic if they travel directly to Australia.

 :( So supah3ro, there is not much more to see in Australia, since TAR 9, Australia has only been a destination once (TAR 18). There has been 6 times in India, 8 in China (including Hong Kong and Macau, 4 times in Japan, even 3 in Austria and Russia. Also we have had India in Seasons 18 and 20, and Indonesia in 19 and 21. So it is about time we have Australia as a destination also it would be good to see New Zealand in TAR 22.

So supah3ro,would like to get a response why you made that statement about Australia and what is your reasoning behind the comment.

I am actually thinking/hoping that they may try for every inhabited continent again. They haven't done that since season 5 I think...and they are slowly building their budget back up. So why not?

If they don't go to Australia/New Zealand next season I will be super surprised. And Africa is pretty much a guarantee if they aren't going to Africa this season. South America/Latin America is a possibility since it isn't being visited this season, but definitely not a guarantee.

I just am hoping for Dubai, Switzerland, and Philippines. Dubai always gives some of the best legs, and the Philippines are such an amazing place. Switzerland is awesome, too. I wouldn't mind a revisit to some secluded tropical islands ala Seychelles, or even some areas in the Mediterranean. Malaysia would be cool. Middle Eastern countries would be awesome too, but really, that isn't all that likely.

So my guess (a little bit of realistic mixed with a little bit of hope, lol):

Leg 1: Venezuela
Leg 2: Guyana
Leg 3: Morocco
Leg 4: Morocco
Leg 5: Dubai
Leg 6: Belgium
Leg 7: Switzerland
Leg 8: Japan
Leg 9: Japan
Leg 10: Philippines
Leg 11: Australia/New Zealand
Leg 12: Home

I live in Australia and I have travelled around Australia. This place is in no shortage of an amazing landscape, but what we don't have is any type of culture. The only real culture here is Indigenous Australian culture, and TAR has already done that before. Not to mention as Leafsfan said, it's so expensive to film here. Normally when they come here they go from big city to outback city. The only big city left is Melbourne, and Melbourne is just buildings. They could do a leg somewhere in the outback, but it'll probably be crap cuz there's nothing to do. Unless you want them to dress up as kangaroos and hop around...

supah3ro speaks the truth...  ;)

I live in Melbourne for almost four years now, indeed only buildings and parks and gardens, though it's a very much multicultural city but there's not much significant of the indigenous culture to be explored, unless you went to the outback.

The only suburban areas that is really interesting for TAR to visit (via Melbourne) is the ancient gold town Ballarat (Sovereign Hill), Phillip Island (lots of holiday attraction, including MotoGP venue), otherwise it's gonna be a waste of episode if they came to Melbourne only for rapelling down the MCG (Melbourne Cricket Ground, the starting line for TARAus-1) or climbing the 88 floors of Eureka tower...  :(

Not that I don't want them to not coming down under to Australia, but it's just.... like..that...

Uhh supah3ro I live in Melbourne and there's a lot to do. You could have a double leg based entirely in Victoria (self driving). The first leg could be AFL & Eureka Tower, with some stops at Great Ocean Road and Phillip Island, the second leg you go to Ballarat and do Eureka Stockade/Gold rush tasks or you could go to the Murray or even Wilsons Prom.  (This is a very long two self driving legs but I could spoil it all :lol: ).

After Africa was missed completely I think we will have 2 legs in one country there, possibly a new country like Uganda.


Yeah, I am sure that Uganda is at the top of Bertram's list. With the outbreak last week of Marburg Haemorrhagic  Fevor.....gives new meaning to "surviving" the leg.

IF there was supposed to be an East Coast start, wonder IF/how long we could be delayed or rescheduled due to Hurricane Sandy? ???
