If the teams are headed back to the airport already, this must be a keep on racing leg with a zero time (or just a couple of hour) pit stop.

If Phil is there an hour ago to take a picture with the fan, then he's not getting any jump at all on the teams. Maybe it's just the production team at the airport now?

I'm puzzled.

I suppose they could be telling the teams to take one or two specific flights while Phil catches an earlier one.

Could Phil be catching a flight but still have time and the other teams are waiting for the pitstart?

Georgiapeach posted some pictures about 30 minutes ago of teams at an airport, so I'm thinking the teams are at the airport now. Phil was there in the last hour or two as well. That's what is so surprising.

Was not expecting the overnight stop, continued racing and an immediate flight to Australia!

I would have expected them to fly there tomorrow with Phil escaping today, what with it being late in the day and all...

There has to be a reason why they're arriving late in the afternoon? Perhaps a task designed for the evening? Perhaps a long drive out to... say... the Great Ocean Road?

(And maybe the New Zealand tasks were planned for the afternoon of the 18th but the delayed flight from Tahiti pushed everything to the next day... I think Phil would have wanted to catch the early morning direct flights straight to Australia!)
Found out that Neobie in Chinese means "f*king awesome"! No, really. Look it up!

Bali? What, did they suddenly discover Indonesia's existence in season 19 and think using it as a location in 3/4 seasons would be a good idea?

I should care that they're visiting Indonesia *yet again*, but who cares it's a new island and it's BALI <333

also, I think that with Bali now as an official destination, I think we'll be seeing another SEAsia leg next
I'm baaaaaack!

I am thinking Bali is being visited for a particular reason. Possibly for the next leg being not well connected and Bali being the only one that connects there (and hasn't been visited yet). Idk just a theory.

Yeah! Bali is quite a good hub to eastern part of Indonesia. Some remote Indonesian islands would be awesome! <33333 My guts said they're gonna spend one leg in Indonesia, though. Production teams know that RFF people would get angry if they spend another two legs in Indonesia :lol: Just kidding. It's pure speculation because we've already had four legs in Indonesia since Season 19.

Bali will be interesting. It is the predominately Hindi, non-Muslim part of Indonesia. It will be interesting to see the contrast with Java.

Yes, there is direct flight to Dili. But Dili also has direct flight from Australia too. I don't know the schedule though

Dili only connects to Jakarta, Singapore and Darwin and Bali

Bali could have been done to contrast Java ruling out Jakarta. Darwin and Singapore have both had legs. Idk maybe

So was there time for a leg 4 in Melbourne or is it just a connector?

Just as a note to where the race travels after Bali, Denpasar is a *hub* of Southeast Asian air traffic that outflanks the size of Bali; you can get nearly everywhere in Southeast Asia and most locations in East Asia from Bali with one or no stopovers.  However, the most highly dense routes from Denpasar are the obvious (Kuala Lumpar, Bangkok, Jakarta and Singapore). 

I would speculate that one or two legs in Southeast Asia would follow.  Given this route's novelty thus far (I mean, seriously, Bali/Southern New Zealand are two locations way over-due), I'm going to cross my fingers for Laos, despite the fact that I'm no longer an expat there.  \=  It's currently the tourist high season, but, it's also the most climate-amenable time to visit the country.  To get to Vientiane or Luang Prabang, it would only require a stop-over in Singapore, Hong Kong, Bangkok, KL, SaiGon, or HaNoi.  So I'll be watching RFF anxiously in the next few days!

There are routes off of Bali via ferry + rail + bus, but, given the production's preference for cutting down on transit time, it's not likely they'll pursue those routes.

Laos would be AMAZING! This season is already shaping up great, but Laos would put it over the top. It's like WRP read our wish lists :lol: jk

I've suggested this possibility pre-season, but if Bali is a good connection point for the following leg(s), Myanmar (Burma) is also a possible location (after all Obama was just there yesterday-today) and he's also been to Thailand and is in Cambodia now.

The fact that they've gone to two legendary places already (Tahiti and Bali, apparently) and a third in a area that stood in for Middle Earth, makes me wonder if more such locations are on the way. Nepal? Shangri La? Any others?
