My attempt at a route. I don't know how feasible the travel is between legs, but it is all northern hemisphere so it would fit with the budget that TAR gets nowadays.

01. United States – South Korea (Gyeongju)
02. South Korea – Philippines
03. Philippines
04. Philippines – Qatar (Doha)
05. Qatar – Uzbekistan
06. Uzbekistan – Estonia
07. Estonia – Latvia (either self-drive or train to cross the border)
08. Latvia – Tunisia
09. Tunisia
10. Tunisia – United Kingdom (Manchester/Liverpool)
11. United Kingdom – Portugal (Ponta Delgada/Azores)
12. Portugal – United States (Boston)

Qatar could be replaced with another middle eastern country with a big city like UAE, Bahrain, Kuwait, or Jordan.
Tunisia could be replaced with another African country. I also considered Senegal, Ghana, Ivory Coast, and Algeria.
United Kingdom could be replaced by Ireland, or could be removed for an 11-leg race.

Feel free to suggest changes and improvements to this route!

  • TAR - Survivor - BB - Pekνn Express <3
I'm bored and I don't know how to make good routes, but I'll try one. xD

ROUTE:

Leg 1: New Mexico, USA to La Ceiba, Honduras.
New city to start the race. Once in Honduras, they can go to the Cayos Cochinos and do some challenges on the islands with jet ski.

Leg 2: La Ceiba, Honduras to Madrid, Spain.
Early leg on my country with the first time in the capital.

Leg 3: Madrid, Spain to Bilbao, Spain.
Double leg in my country of course, now going to the north. Tapas RB.

Leg 4: Bilbao, Spain to Andorra La Vella, Andorra.
There's no airport that connect Bilbao with Andorra, so they should go driving, or going with train + bus (which I would prefer because it's a long way to go and some teams could get lost and eliminated so easly). Mountains and ice leg.

Leg 5: Andorra La Vella, Andorra to Vilnius, Lithuania.
New country to visit.

Leg 6: Vilnius, Lithuania to Windhowk, Namibia.
Visit to the Sossusvlei desert with some quad biking.

Leg 7: Windhowk, Namibia to Perth, Australia.
Going again to Australia since forever. I don't get that we are stuck in Fiji (Oceania) in Survivor but we can't get in any Oceania country in TAR. lol This would a city leg.

Leg 8: Perth, Australia to Adelaida, Australia.
City + visit to the Kangaroo Island.

Leg 9: Adelaida, Australia to Vientiane, Laos.
New country and visit the Mekong River, temples, etc.

Leg 10: Vientiane, Laos to Luang Prabang, Laos.
Rural leg in Laos.

Leg 11: Luan Prabang, Laos to Alberta, Canada.
Going to the Banff Natural Park. Awesome views. Tσtem RB.

Leg 12: Alberta, Canada to Washington DC.
How's that TAR never had a finish line in it's own capital? Visit to the White House. Final memory RB.

New countries: Honduras, Andorra, Lithuania and Laos.
New Starting Line and Finish Line, and new cities.

Great route tbh! To make it more realistic I'd switch laos and australia's order although I love africa-->oceania! So both work! This is a season id definitely watch! A good balance of new underused and common countries! AWESOME

Thank you!! :2hearts:

And oh, my mistake for counting Lithuania as a new country. :groan:

I definitely like the US>South Korea>Philippines>Qatar start to the Race. Travel between those countries will definitely not be a problem. Lots of direct flights. And it also fulfills my wish of South Korea and the Philippines to finally appear in the first half of the Race.

I would like to see South Africa in place of Tunisia. I'm not sure if Tunisia is feasible these days. The rest of the route is great though.

That way they can go from Christchurch to Dunedin for another task and pitstop. So what do you think of my destination so far?

I do think Jordan and Israel might deserve two legs each so it might be best to have them on different seasons.

Swap both Laoag and Bontoc and you will get Cebu City and Iloilo City as Legs 3 and 4. Iloilo City is the no. 1 best airport in the Philippines and no. 12 in Asia.

I'm partial to the North since my family is from there.  :-[
The Philippine Legs from TAR5 and TAR25 have either been more tropical (Palawan) or urban (Manila/Cavite) with a little bit of rural with the carabaos/ox of course.

So I've been hoping for TAR to do a more cultural Leg, which they haven't done yet in the Philippines. Bontoc/Mountain Province and any of the cordilleras can definitely fulfill that. A nice Detour or Road Block involving traditional native dances. Plus more rural, farm-like tasks. And I paired a Bontoc Leg with Laoag so they can travel over land and just because the Bangui windmills, Paoay church and sand dunes would be beautiful to feature.

The Laoag Leg can be swapped out for Baguio or Vigan (TARA5-style Leg) too.

Overall it's a good route. That's why we love the Philippines most.
