Koh Phi Phi, Thailand to Bukittinggi, Indonesia

After enjoying the tranquillity of the paradise islands of Koh Phi Phi, the teams now face a giant leap into the unknown, leaving Thailand behind to embark on a 2000km journey across Malaysia to the rarely-visited Indonesian island of Sumatra, where the sixth checkpoint lies in the mountain-fringed city of Bukittinggi.

Our panel discusses how the dwindling budgets are starting to put pressure on the teams, the pros and cons of the routes taken and the highlights (and lowlights!) experienced along the way. With only a few weeks to go, it might be time to place our bets on our winners-to-be finally!

Singapore to Bangkok by Rail

Embark on an enchanting 18-day journey through Singapore, Malaysia, and Thailand, travelling by a mix of trains, coaches- and even a funicular railway. Immerse yourself in the heritage towns of the Malay Peninsula before venturing into the heart of the Cameron Highlands by train. In Thailand, ancient rainforests and scenic national parks await, with opportunities to hike, swim and relax. A poignant visit to Kanchanaburi offers insight into WWII history, before your journey terminates in dynamic Bangkok.

Past Episodes

Week 1 - Japan

Week one saw the teams racing from Sapporo, the capital city of Hokkaido, over 1,600 kilometers south to the ancient capital of Nara. with multiple routes to choose from, a huge language barrier to oevrcome and travelling through one of the most expensive countries in the world, this week really tested the teams skills, ingenuity and determination.

Week 2 - Japan to South Korea

Week two saw the teams crossing their first border into South Korea and travelling the length of the country to reach the second checkpoint in the seaside town of Sokcho. In the Wu Crew Jimmy is not happy with someone's queue jumping and Jen thinks Brydie and Sharon need to get a move on!

Week 3 - Vietnam to Cambodia

The teams enter Southeast Asia for the first time, starting the third leg from the chaotic Vietnamese capital Hanoi. They must race over 2,000km through Vietnam and into the Kingdom of Cambodia to reach one of the fastest-developing cities in South East Asia – Phnom Penh.

Week 4 - Cambodia to Thailand

This week the teams are starting from the third checkpoint in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. From here they must travel 1,400 kilometres through Thailand, one of the most visited countries in the world, to the Shan Highland that straddle the Thai-Myanmar border, where the fourth checkpoint is situated in the sleepy mountain town of Mae Sariang. 

Week 5 - Mae Sariang to Koh Phi Phi, Thailand

On this week's vert scenic episode, our racers navigated the full length of Thailand to reach the next checkpoint - Koh Phi Phi -  immortalised by the Hollywood blockbuster movie The Beach. Our panel discuss the challenge of getting to Bangkok with very limited transport - and their thoughts on how the various teams tackled this. They also discuss their favourite Thailand highlights that were missed, trains travel in Southeast Asia - and of course their new (and old!) hot favourites to win!
