If the Island theme continues then Sri Lanka Indonesia, Philippines are MOST LIKELY.

And what exactly is wrong with China? We CAN have good China legs (TAR18).

I'm liking this island-edition, TAR 3/6/12 style route, which is actually solid budget-wise. To recap:

Leg 1 (5/31): US Virgin Islands
Leg 2 (6/2-3): England
Leg 3 (6/5): Shetland Islands
Leg 4 (6/7): Denmark/Sweden (it should be one leg, since only four days separate Leg 3 and Morocco)
Leg 5 (6/9): Morocco
Leg 6 (6/11): Morocco
Leg 7 (6/13): Sicily
Leg 8 (6/15): Malta

It's time for the race to leave Europe with a three-leg sprint across Asia. I'm favoring India/Philippines, but this route has surprised me. Hong Kong or Macau could be a definite possibility based off the island theme. Is it also time for a Seattle finish?

Hi! I have been TAR fan since TAR 17 from Camarines Sur, Philippines!... I am looking forward to see TAR 25 en route to Albay, Philippines doing the Jig or Pig again.. Hahaha... Albay is a province just beside ours... Batanes is also nice  island in the north near Taiwan but not accessible to plane. Laoag and Vigan are the nearest places to go there and can be possible choices.  Palawan is also a good choice but was visited before. Corregidor Island is a historic place and just a ferry away in Manila. Boracay Island is also a good choice since this place is the number one tourist destination during summer months but summer has just ended here. Or Caramoan Island (same with Survivor) in our province. Hoping to see Philippines in TAR :)

We need Jeju Island kthx.

And don't forget Singapore, its a city-state nation but its truly an island.
My posts are fine, so please be careful.

Just looking at some escape flights from Europe to some SE Asian Islands..........

London Heathrow    6 non stops to Singapore
                             8 non stops to Hong Kong

Frankfurt                3 non stops to Singapore
                             2 non stops to Hong Kong

Amsterdam            2 non stops to Singapore
                            2 non stops to Hong Kong

Munich                  1 non stop to Singapore
                            1 non stop to  Hong Kong

Paris                     2 non stops to Singapore
                            3 non stops to Hong Kong

Milan                    1 non stop to Singapore
                            1 non stop to Hong Kong

Istanbul                2 non stops to Singapore
                           1 non stop to Hong Kong

Zurich                  2 non stops to Singapore
                           1 non stop to Hong Kong

Hong Kong gives good access to the Philippines or Taiwan. Singapore gives good access to Australia and New Zealand.

One of the London/Singapore flights is actually a London to Sydney flight.....with a 2-3 hour refueling stop in Singapore.

Yes Alcatraz! I've been trying to figure out a Final Leg in San Francisco lately.
Maybe a final memory task on Yerba Buena Island, the brand new Bay Bridge in the background, and teams then have to take a boat or jetski to Alcatraz where they'd have to look for the Finish Line.

Angel Island in SF Bay would be stunning too.  :hearts:

For a San Francisco Finish Line, it would make sense for Korea to be the final country.  Direct flights from Seoul get in midday at SFO while the direct flight from Manila arrives in the evening, unless they connect through Japan or even China which would just prolong the travel time an extra day.
The other direct flight from Manila to the US?  LAX, arriving in the morning.   :grins:

Please everyone help watch twitter closely today? They may have already been traveling about 6+ hours, sightings could happen any time!

If Malta is leg 8 or 9, doesn't that give them only two or three legs to get all the way across Asia to the West Coast? Do you think they could pull that off?

Plenty of islands around Seattle if it's a Seattle finish: Bainbridge Island, Mercer Island, Vashon Island, Blake Island.

Malta is probably leg 8, which leaves 3 Asian legs. TAR 3, 12 and 20 also did this, so it's definitely doable.

If the producers are going for all islands, Singapore should be the next country to look at. Afterwards, Jeju, and Philippines should all definitely be examined very closely.

It could be either one
I checked one episode of last season of TARLA and TAR24 and the clues are the same

I believe most of the regional editions of TAR use the exact same clue envelopes.
