Pékin Express will maybe begin his shooting on end of February somewhere on Central Asia.

They are now filming. But this year's route isn't in Central Asia, it is through Malaysian Borneo, Phillipines and Japan, with the final taking place in Tokyo.

If you search on Facebook Cats FM you will find some posts where they interviewed last Sunday a team and they confirmed the route Kuching-Japan.

The first day they were in Kuching, and they were also seen on Padungan street. The third day the production team was at Batang Ai Dam lake, and the next day in Belaga.

To be honest with you, if the US is going to have an American version of Pekin Express, Bertram van Munster would definitely file a lawsuit for Pekin Express for copying his show (The Amazing Race).

Just want to note that Luzon isn't a city, but the entire north island of the Philippines which includes Metro Manila.

I saw this article though and it mentions "north of Manila" ("Nord de Manille") so they must have gone to northern Luzon, specifically. A part of the country I hope TARUS gets to visit one day.

Excited to see the Philippines on Pekin Express again though!

Actually, when TAR France had it's one season, it was funny to see literally hundreds of tweets blasting TAR France for being a copy of Pekin Express.  :funny:

I miss Pekín Express Spain. I applied some times but never received the call back, and now it's cancelled. I hope it returns because I want to continue trying. ;(

The first leg is finish with a lot of things. Teams arrived at Kuching Airport after a long travel. Instead of go to the hotel to sleep and take a bath, the race begin immediately. The teams take their backpack and take some item on their bagage Inside their backpack (clothings, passport etc...). The first team who arrived at Kampung Giam will be qualify for the immunity challenge. Each team got one euro for each day of the race. Teams travel by car until a panel pekin express stop them. It's a new rule of the race, at this moment of the race, each team must stop at the panel with a striped car. The teams must change their way of locomotion, at this time, each time must travel by canoe 3.7 miles (6km) to Kampung Giam. After a lot of fun with the canoe, Maxime and Alizée win. They are qualified for the immunity challenge. They also have a meeting with some orang outans in the forest with a guard. The race continue for the others teams. The first and second team at Kampung Mujat will be qualified for the immunity challenge, it's Estelle and Estelle and Martin and Laetitia.

At the immunity challenge, three teams are present. The teams are separate in two, a member shot with a blowgun 12 balloons in 30 minutes. When they hit a balloon, a number appear. It's the number of a door of a long house (a particular house in Malaysia). The person who hit a balloon said by walkie-talkie to his team mate the number. His team mate go to the long house to find the door. Behind the door is a people, the team mate describe to his Partner the person behind the door. After the end of the 30 minutes, each team declare at which number are the people behind the doors (it's a difficult task). Estelle and Estelle win the immunity. The teams sleep with locals.

For the last day, each team learn that a team quite the race, it's elodie and gaelle. Gaelle learn a bad news in his family and she prefer came back in France. An other unknow team will be at the 2nd leg. At a moment of the race, each team switch of locomotion way and use a bicycle for 5km. The problem is that there is a bicycle for each team, so for two. A team crash (Christina and Didier) and their bicycle is broken, they finish the race by walk. Christina and Didier are last, Maxime and Alizée win the first leg and an amulet of 10000€ (They don't win this money, money is real at the end of the final leg).

The last team must challenge another team to avoid the elimination. Christina and Didier choose Vanessa and Audrey. The team are a separate in two, one travel to Engkilili and have a task with a kaplas tower (The other wait at the finish line his other Partner). At Engkilili, each person must remove a piece with a letter. With all the letters, you could compose the name "Pekin Express". If the tower collapse, the person must start again at the beginning. It was really hard, the person must came back at the finish line. Christina and Didier win by a 6 seconds lead. Vanessa and Audrey are eliminated.
