 :gaah:

Don't get me wrong, I think Indonesia is a great country, and I loved that it finally got used, but 4 out of the last 5 seasons featuring at least one leg there??

I think my opinion is a little sour since the first two visits involved Eastern Java, and JUST Eastern Java

I guess Bandung is cool tho, and at least it isn't with 9+ teams this time... :res:

I am really wondering if this could not be a last minute substitution. Conditions in Malaysia etc are not good for a leg right now.

WHY Indonesia again?

WRP realized they missed out on a great country for 18 seasons and are now over using it.

Cheap labor for local crew could be one of the factors...

I don't mind if its a new place which it is. On the plus side this is at the end of the race.

I don't really think it's the 'last minute' one, but a subtitue probably, because Ryan Danz have gave us some insight and clue before the teams took off from USA...

I'm quite worried about traffic jams, I went to Bandung last year in June and the traffic was crazy. Indonesian schools have breaks in June so there's a lot of tourists there at the moment.

Indonesia is a big hop from Austria via Doha, but while I understand why it may seem to be too much to some, (as India was in those early seasons, along with China) to the average viewer of TAR in the US it is not as big a concern since it's a country most Americans are just plainly unfamiliar with. What I want is for them to do something with coffee (since Java is a common nickname for coffee in the US, and we all could use a pick-up or two with the time lag and Phil's jet lag!

I was once asked by the sophmores and juniors at high school during my exchange year in the US back in 2006, and they were asking me, 'where is Indonesia?' and then I asked them back, 'do you guys know Bali?!' and almost 90% of them nodding their head, meaning that yes they know.. So I explained to them.. 'Well, Bali is located in Indonesia, so if you know Bali that means you also know Indonesia, it is one of the provinces in the country.." and suddenly they're all laughing... :lol:

It's Bandung, and unfortunately there's no Beach there...

And they are probably at Changi Airport Singapore right now waiting for tommorow's flight...

Maybe you mean Bandung, Jobby. :)
Actually, Bandung is a landlocked city, so no way there will be a beach leg in Bandung. :lol: ;)

Oh... my... gosh, Indonesia again? :wtf: That's like going to India five seasons in a row to me. At least take teams to the Philippines for heck's sake. They haven't went there for almost 15+ seasons! :tantrum :tantrum :tantrum I'm done with Indonesia and I never want to see it on the race again if they visit it this season as well. All the seasons that have featured Indonesia as a leg sucked in the end product (TAR19, TAR21, TAR22). I don't want that to be a curse like the 3rd leg curse people are talking about. For now it's... "Frequent flying to Indonesia, frequent failures in execution."

I know, but Indonesia has been visited even more frequently than China or India now in post-UB which makes me overdramatize stuff since unvisited or long-time raced countries need a starring too. I liked it when Indonesia was visited in TAR19, not an incredibly strong leg, but really grateful they visited it, but now it's like they are vomiting routes for Indonesia that don't even focus correctly like TAR21. I don't even remember what the teams did in Surabaya or Bangil except for the padang plate balance RB.
