I just want them to take off ASAP so we can chase them down.  :lol3:

Also , i don't think it's in LA again. I hope we can see another location , maybe leaving LA for a final leg or something like this...

My prediction for a final city : Anchorage (i really hope they get back there soon)

On destinations:
I am almost 100% locked on onto Malaysia. It's been 6 seasons and one of the cheapest SE Asia destinations, with just enough to keep it fresh every visit. We could look at Eastern peninsular malaysia (Kuantan/Kota Bharu) or Western/Southern (Ipoh/Malacca/ Penang again why not?) or Kuching/Miri/Kota Kinabalu on Borneo. Our Malaysia fans should keep an eye out this season.

Legs in China are almost always interesting, so count that in for TAR23. They might explore Southern China due to convenient connection by Hong Kong. Cities such as Guangzhou, Xiamen, Haikou/Sanya on Hainan island. If they transit by Shanghai, it would be Suzhou, Hangzhou, Wuxi & the UNESCO Huangshan in neighbouring Anhui province. I do not think they will do a leg in/around the northern part i.e. via Beijing. The only possibility would be Harbin/Shenyang to connect into Russia's eastern edge, or Inner Mongolia/Xinjiang to connect to Mongolia. Count Chengdu out.

Also, Cambodia for the same reasons as Malaysia. Though it would be freaking hot!! The last time it was visited was the Zev & Justin passport disaster leg IIRC. And that was just Phnom Penh. Siem Reap has lots to show in the 10 seasons since its Race visit. And in between the 2 cities, Baray, Kampong Cham, Preah Vihear (UNESCO temple) could be an additional leg in the same way producers like to have Phuket/Chiang Mai as an additional leg when visiting Thailand.

I could envision 2-3 legs in Mongolia/Irkutsk/Lake Baikal region in seasons to come. That is a region yet to be explored. Vladivostok/ROK/Japan might be a stretch due to their proximity to DPRK. Singapore and Philippines are about time too, even if it was just 1 Manila city leg. It would truly surprise me in a good way if the race went to Myanmar, or Nepal.

On Europe: I don't think they can skip this continent entirely. Like Asia, when cultures are so different and in Asia's case when 2/3 of the world resides there, it's not really a "Race around the world" if you don't visit it.
Very low chances of TAR23 going to: France, Germany, Italy, Switzerland
Moderate chances: Spain (least likely Barcelona due to S21), Czech Republic, Sweden, Finland
High chances: Portugal, Hungary, Baltic states, Former Yugoslavia states - you get where i'm going with this

On start/end cities:
Have they ever done Philly?
Just for the random lulz -> Wichita, KS - "aviation capital of US"
Dover, Delaware
New Orleans
Galveston
Denver
Boise
Kansas City
Dallas

That is right. Here's why:
Amazing Races usually end with a leg featuring a long international flight from Asia, Europe, South America or another flying from or finishing in a distant part of the U.S. (Alaska, Hawaii, Guam). The only ones not fitting that that occur to me are AR5 (Calgary) and AR8 (Toronto).


Editor's right - airlinesguy is basically right in his recommendation below. I did not include any Caribbean jumping-off-for-finale points, but AR7 with Jamaica/Puerto Rico could qualify. The flight from San Juan into Miami was only a few hours, which is why I did not think of it.

I like your suggestions for countries to visit.

No, they've never really done Philly.  I don't live in the area anymore -- I had to move to Raleigh -- but I'd love to see a start or end in Philly, since it was near home for so long!

If they ever start/finish in Philly, I'm willing to drop what ever I'm doing and head into the city. I live like 45 minutes outside of it. I keep waiting.

Jamaica would fit too.

We haven't seen the Caribbean in a while, have we? and while it's technically hurricane season on June 1, storms that early are quite rare. Seems like they could find an acceptably safe island, and flight access between the region and the US is generally good, especially with a NYC or Miami start.

YEah, it's about time the Philippines gets a leg or two. There are so many things they can do here. How about a balut-eating or one-day-old-eating and a heavy physical task (a market task which requires them to get dirty and tired) detour

Man...I'd be so pissed if they went to Ilocos Norte, Philippines.  I was just there in March/April 2013!  I can already imagine them visiting Batac to make empanadas or ziplining in Pagudpud or visiting the windmills in Bangui.

Heck, I'd be happy with a visit anywhere in the country!

Never for a finale. The only time they went to Philly, was during Family Edition, for an overnight stay in tents that teams had to pitch.

It would be awesome if they finished in Philly, since I live and work in it. And feel like it will get its due soon, after 4 of the last 5 seasons have finished in NL East cities (baseball fans will know what I'm referring to  :) ). That's assuming S23 is going west.
