I think it's gonna be the highland, such as Darjeeling, or even more bustling city that hasn't been visited yet, such as Bangalore  ;)

Recent rapes of Indian women make me think it'll be unlikely that TAR will visit India.

I'd like TAR to visit Mexico, but considering the safety issues I doubt they'll go there.

Since we've seen a lot of Western Europe, I think we'll see more of Eastern Europe this time (and not just Russia)!

Korea is out.  Japan is probably out as well thanks to North Korea's provocations.  If TAR goes to China, it'll be southern China.  Northern China is too close to Korea -- especially northeastern China!

We might see some of Latin America.  Costa Rica, maybe.

A lot of editions of the race have been filming in places like Sri Lanka and The Philippines so I can't see them ruling them out straight away...

I hope for a Philippine leg since there hasn't been any since TAR 5. :D

OMG YES !!!!

although even I live in it, I was kind a done now with South East Asia...
maybe season 25 ...

but I'd love to see TAR to visit The Phillipines either way...

I think we are due a NON-LA start. :lol:
Amen, let's hope for that. How about Atlanta?
Philadelphia (although that would make a better finishing place)?
Charlotte?
Detroit?
Orlando?
Houston?
St. Louis?
Minneapolis?

This is what I think and Peach thinks. It is quite similar to what Claude has proposed for the start city and diametrically opposed to ZBC stating "We all know that it's going to be L.A."  We don't all know that and one of these races World Race Productions is not going to take the easy way out and give us a more interesting start instead of just a drive to LAX.

I'd love for TAR to begin or end (preferably end) in Philly.  Until last year, I lived about an hour north-northwest of there and it would be great seeing some highlights of Philly!

Y'all, this is not a wishlist thread. Educated spec on routes is fine, posting a bunch of wishlists here is not. Let's try to be aware of the difference, okay??

I'll begin my analysis with likely ideas:

South America: Typically, S. America is visited every other cycle, but TAR 22 broke the cycle because it headed to Oceania first. Since I expect TAR 23 to head eastward, it logically makes sense for TAR to head south first before heading to Europe/Africa. Three legs minimum because of the gap since TAR 20, with one country being a double leg. Peru is a good candidate for a first destination/double leg, and because Argentina was featured during the last visit to S. America, it's probably Brazil or Chile's turn.

Europe: Western Europe has been extensively featured in the past few cycles, so I'm hoping for (and expecting) Eastern Europe, namely the area around the Balkans. Hungary and Bulgaria are definite possibilities as well. Due to the numerous European legs last year, I'm only expecting two legs; I think Africa will be visited before Europe though.

Africa: In accordance with TAR's recent patterns, I'm expecting Africa to be visited in TAR 23 and skipped in TAR 24. There will be two legs in one country as usual; I actually think that Johannesburg, South Africa would be a fairly good choice to be revisited, given the relative ease of the hop from Brazil. I don't know where the second leg in S. Africa would be. Dark horse candidates include Ethiopia and Rwanda; if so, Europe comes first and the overall route becomes quite similar to TAR 20.

Asia: This is by far the murkiest area to predict because there's a lot of available areas to explore. Here are just some of the possibilities for the three or four Asian legs: India (maybe unlikely due to the rapes, but definitely two legs if visited), Sri Lanka, Malaysia, Laos, Philippines, Nepal, and China.

Oceania: No visit because New Zealand and French Polynesia were just visited.

North America: Likely no visit to Central America or the Caribbean, unfortunately, unless Africa or South America is removed (which I don't want to see happen). We're looking at a final city in the Midwest or the West Coast. Thus, I lean towards Seattle or Chicago.

I definitely do not hope Africa is revisited after this season's visit. It is expensive to go to all the continents, so I do not think South America and Africa will come together anytime soon. Europe will also get at least 3 legs, as travelling through there is safer and in most cases cheaper (in terms of long distance trips).
Asia is always hard to predict. I hope somewhere next to Israel and such countries is visited. Would also expect somewhere southeast, skipping Vietnam and Indonesia, which are becoming the same of every season. I would love a Philippines and Sngapore, IMHO. I also pray for 2 legs in a row in North America to serve for the last two legs of this race.

Not much worldwide events in 2013 that may bring visits to a EuroCup or Olympics themed leg, IDK.

Maybe this time we can get an Europe start. It's been a while since last time.

Well TAR17 was the last time, so I think it should be time for another Europe start.
