I think Season 31 will feature:

~Fiji
One; Fiji has sponsored and Two; Survivor keeps going back because of budget and Three; would give us a promising Oceania leg!

~Taiwan
WAYYYYYYYYY overdue again and has been sponsoring

~Kyrgyzstan
Having been visited in the recent HaMerotz LaMillion season, would make for a good new country leg!

~Finland or Sweden
Both overdue (Sweden in S25 does NOT count in my books) for another visit and have sooooo much to offer!

~United Kingdom
there's always one over used country...

Melbourne is not gunna be visited for quite some time now, as we has 2 vechicar ramming attacks in 2016 and African youth crime is out of control.  :cmas3 There are now police EVERYWHERE on the streets, it's so very unnerving. I they come to Australia, the Gold Coast or Tasmania still remain options!

Truss, if they got deemed Melbourne unsuitable you can say goodbye to all major European cities like London, Berlin, Milan & Barcelona.

Fiddling with routes a bit and figured out a possible TAR 30 route!!!

Leg-1 Los Angeles, United States to Mamanuca Islands, Fiji
Mamanuca Islands are being used for Survivor so it just makes sense for CBS to use them for The Amazing Race too!

Leg-2 Mamanuca Islands, Fiji to Sydney, Australia
Do I want Sydney to be visited? NO Do I think Sydney will be visited? YES

Leg-3 Sydney, Australia to Brisbane, Australia
The Gold Coast area in general would be great! Or even Cairns!

Leg-4 Brisbane, Australia to Nagoya, Japan
We just need a cultural leg in Japan! No more robots! (There can still definitely be a game show task)

Leg-5 Nagoya, Japan to Siem Reap, Cambodia
C'mon! Way overdue. +tarantula eating task

Leg-6 Siem Reap, Cambodia to Cape Town, South Africa
ostrich riding, shark diving, children work tasks would make this leg incredible! Ostrich riding faceoff???

Leg-7 Cape Town, South Africa to Port Elizabeth, South Africa
Bungee jump and wildlife! The annual africa routine!

Leg-8 Port Elizabeth, South Africa to Dusseldorf, Germany
Cultural, not in Bavaria. I was thinking a giant advent calendar task

Leg-9 Dusseldorf, Germany to Rovaniemi, Finland
Santa tasks, lapland, northern lights. Say no more.

Leg-10 Rovaniemi, Finland to Zurich, Switzerland
Or Bern. Or Basel. Or Geneva. Or Lucerne. Or Lugano. Or anywhere in Switzerland! I love the Swiss legs!

Leg-11 Zurich, Switzerland to Montego Bay, Jamaica
Rastafari, bobsledding, Rose Hall, beach, alcohol tasks. The possibilities are endless.

Leg-12 Montego Bay, Jamaica to New Orleans, United States or Orlando, United States
I would rather Orlando but believe there's a better chance for New Orleans.

I see this season perfect for TAR 25-30 All-Stars! Let me know ur thoughts!

For season 31, do u guys think there will be a S25-30 cast, or a 21-30 cast if its returnee?

I think it will be S25-30 but hope i it's S21-30. Tim/Marie, Bunnies, Max/Katie, Pam/Winnie, Jaymes and James would be my 21-13 pick with Adam/Bethany, Kym/Alli, Tiffany/Krista, Sheri/Cole, Becca/Floyd, and Jess/Cody (if they win Kristi & Jen) (Justin/Diana as a 12th possible team)

Leg 1: Los Angeles, United States-Nadi, Fiji

Beach Roadblock

Leg 2: Nadi, Fiji-Tasmania, Australia
Cradle Mountain task, market Detour

Leg 3: Tasmania, Australia-Melbourne/Gold Coast, Australia

Leg 4: Melbourne/Gold Coast, Australia-Davao, Philippines
Phillpinos on RFF (Claude), is Davao safe? If it isn't, a leg will take place in Iloio!

Leg 5: Davao, Philippines-Xi'an, China
TAR Wouldn't be TAR without going to China! Tasks would include historical tasks related to Xi'an

Leg 6: Xi'an China-Chengdu, China
Again, TAR wouldn't be TAR without having 2 legs in China! This leg will focus on pandas!

Leg 7: Chengdu, China-Sharjah, United Arab Emirates
Tasks include going to a mosque, diving with sharks in the aquarium and caring for wildlife

Leg 8: Sharjah, United Arab Emirates-Tel Aviv, Israel
I'm not sure about tasks for this leg!

Leg 9: Tel Aviv, Israel-Thessaloniki, Greece
Greece historical tasks for this leg!

Leg 10: Thessaloniki, Greece-Valencia, Spain
Would visit Barcelona, but unsafe at the moment. Unsure what tasks to do in Valencia!  :cmaslol

Leg 11: Valencia, Spain-Madrid, Spain
Soccer task, King of Spain task...

Leg 12: Madrid, Spain-Baltimore, Maryland
Babe Ruth task!!!

Finish Line: M&T Bank Stadium, Baltimore, USA

This season should be All-Stars. Candidates include Justin and Diana, Matt and Redmond, Sheri and Cole, Denise and James Earl, Kym and Alli, Hayley and Blair, Becca and Floyd and Misti and Jim

Repost from my post above:

I would generally think Cusco, Peru for the penultimate leg for TAR 31. It has many notable tourist attractions like Machu Picchu, Sacred Valley and more.

Also, South Africa is a long overdue and its been more than a decade was last visited in the original.

I'd like to see more new European countries

It's been nice for them to pass through the microstates, and even to the sort of European countries of Armenia, Georgia, and Azerbaijan

But the last sizable new countries that were squarely in Europe were Denmark and Belgium in S19

Anything new since has been a microstate/constituent country of the U.K./Caucasus pseudo-Europe country

Still need to see:
Bulgaria
Bosnia-Herzegovina
Serbia
Slovenia
Montenegro
Slovakia
Latvia
Albania
Macedonia

Even Belarus and Moldova are outside potentials, yet I could understand why they'd hesitate on those

I wouldn't be surprised if we see Luxembourg and San Marino soon though

I want a returnee season with earlier booted teams,in this case NFL have a second chance, and after that I want the season(s) with more F/F teams than M/M teams like S17, S25 and most season of TARI or TAR Asia
I can't believe TARUS never visited Laos, Laos' visa regime is relative open and easy and the risk for crime is equal or even below some other visited countries.

TAR19 was a missed opportunity, as leg 5 was scheduled to be held there.
TARV visited Laos in S4 Leg 5, all tasks with the exception of money-making was great in 3 days leg and ended with KOR
