I donít know why but I just feel like Singapore will be visited.

Singapore was last visited five seasons ago and could not be a fourpeat. Unlikely choice.
Who knows will that happen, considering they do a fourpeat for Hong Kong a few seasons ago  :groan:
(But I will love to see Hong Kong again, so I can go out to hunt for them again, after barely missed out for TAR27  :groan:)

^ Yeah, I've been thinking about that as well.
Although I would LOVE this route if they only did 1 Asian leg and then visited Oceania - would be unprecedented, - I don't think it's likely, for the same reason that it hasn't been done before. :lol:

Although, would it be possible to have Bahrain > Taiwan > Fiji > USA??
Would fit in nicely with the whole sponsoring thing.

I highly doubt that Thailand (Especially Bangkok) is gonna be visited the upcoming week since the Royal Cremation Ceremony will take place this week. And right now there is a lot of road close and traffic block for preparation several place in Bangkok. And a lot of place and several road and transportation in Bangkok will be closed temporary on Thrusday for cremation day. And since right now it's in mourning state, I doubt the production want to create controversy and difficulty by having teams wearing colorful clothing and running around.

Other part of Thailand might have slightly more chance for visit. But I don't think this is a good timing for the race to visit Thailand.

Malaysia may be taking as an alternate replacement for Thailand and let's get for Penang revisit.

Although unlikely, I still wish for them to visit Laos... But a visit to Australia/NZ/somewhere in Oceania or Taiwan is not bad either...

PS: I always welcome them if they visit Indonesia lol

i agree with most of comments here, i think we will have one more leg in Asia and then Australia and/or Oceania before the finale

I know what he wrote, i was kidding  :D
Regarding the volcano, itís more than three weeks since the alert level on Baliís Mount Agung was raised to its highest level, but the volcano has still not erupted (of course we hope it won't happen)

If they're visiting Indonesia (maybe in later seasons), they should just avoid Bali and Java (except Jakarta lol). Indonesia's big y'know, there's so much more unique locations to visit.

It's like visiting France/China/India many times but they somehow manage to visit different locations, right?

What's kinda funny is that the first Indonesian visit wasn't even until Season 19, then something inspired them to keep coming back in a short time :lol:

US has never really been to Jakarta, and it's the capital.

From what I have seen from the flight info and the departure time of the teams,I think LA/NY are having the highest possibility
Especially Hong Kong Leg will end around 11pm - midnight on Oct 22

And there are 2 flights for both to NY/LA

I want Alaska too, but I'm not seeing any direct flights on the 23rd, maybe someone else will, or maybe the seats are booked by TAR?

The ones I see all connect, and the flight times are extremely long.  30 hours because of the connections?

You guys are the pros at this though.

I'd love to see tropic to snow.

Honolulu is great and more places to see the city like 'Iolani Palace, USS Arizona Memorial, Sea Life Park, USS Missouri and Moanalua Gardens.

It's actually a cargo flight. There are no direct passenger flights between Hong Kong and Anchorage. The most likely course for traveling from Hong Kong to Honolulu is connecting via either Haneda or Narita, both in Tokyo.

I was just looking at the Tokyo flights to Anchorage, since there are plenty of Hong Kong to Tokyo flights. 

All had at least one stop though, but that MIGHT be because TAR already has seats on reserve so they aren't showing up.  Also, I only looked at the 23rd.  Connection points were as varied as Honolulu or SFO or Seattle.  So?

If they do go to Hawaii, I hope they will at least go to an outer island.  Also just checked flights from HK to Kona, way too many connections for that.  But you can hop over to any island easily in Honolulu.  I'd love to see Molokai, I love that island, and it would be a scary flight for everyone, the winds knock those small planes around pretty well.  Kauai would be another great choice, SO much diversity of landscapes, and tons to do, without as many people around.

I just don't want LA.  Alaska seems impractical, but that would be my favorite.  If it has to be California, I hope they chose another city.  Lots of flights to Seattle too.
