Are they ever going to get out of southeast Asia aside from when they go home to Finland? This feels like we're watching Australia 7's route over again :/

If there is any Europe, it'd be neat to see some new countries with which they have a closer relationship than the US, namely Lithuania or Latvia.

Don't forget Estonia! Imagine having the penultimate leg in Estonia, and starting the final leg with taking a 2 hrs ferry ride to Helsinki.

But yes, I really hope they other countries than just countries in Southeast Asia. But these countries will definitely give the racers some culture shock.
Kudos for TAR Suomi for going internationally with the route, unlike TAR Canada.

The producers said that they would be traveling to countries that most Finns only dream about. I doubt that we'll be seeing countries close to their home.

Well it isn't changing: Penang.

Side note, did they watch TAR Asia 5 when planning the route?

If they hit Singapore next, then we'll get BINGO.

Task on Armenian Street with four teams left.

I got a cameo in Amazing Race Finland, helping one of 4 teams left. They gave me a souvenir.

Some of the locations shown include Bajra Sandhi Monument in Denpasar, Wat Sri Sunthon in Phuket, Goa Jomblang, and Wat Saket in Bangkok. The very first Pit Stop is Benchakitti Park in Bangkok.

Today was a press preview day with the first clip released. The first task was to match names, flags, and currencies of countries (Tunisia, Malaysia, Czech Republic, Mexico, Thailand). Teams then got 40 to get to the airport, but it normally costs about 50-60 by taxi.
