I just don't think that would ever happen, both countries would have to take a loss to make the Olympics happen and that just won't happen.

I think the Taiwanese prime minister declared TW's willingness to host the Olympics in 2020 two or three months ago when London won the bid. He didn't say which city will cast the bid, but I think it will be Kaohsiung since Kaohsiung will be experienced hosting large scale international games after 2009.
Taipei has a big chance too; however, it hardly has any experiences hosting large scale international games. It has only hosted several small scale international games.
Taichung adn Tainan are too small to handle it.
However, doesn't matter which Taiwanese city will cast the bid, it would just be a waste of money and time.
There are so many way more qualified cities in the world than Taipei or Kaohsiung, we won't get it. And needless to mention that China will spare no efforts to prevent Taiwan from hosting any important international events since it wants to isolate Taiwan from the rest of the world.
But I really hope China can support our bid, ( if we really cast one), since Taiwan highly supported Beijing for 2008. That's just my dream though. Sigh, I know it won't happen.

As for 2016, I'd like to see the Olympics happenning in South America or Africa.
If it goes to North American, I'd like to see it in Toronto.

I would love to see Toronto get it too, but since Vancouver is already getting it in 2010 Toronto decided not to run, maybe 2020. It won't be european or north american I can tell you that.

Europe has no chance of getting it.... London has 2012, Athens has 2004 -that means Europe will not have a chance until 2020 or 2024.

I think it will be in the Americas - my guess is San Francisco has good chances if they bid to be the US candidate again ..... Buenos Aires also sounds like a good candidate but is the government there prepared to invest so much in getting the games - that alone costs a forture.


I really can not see Dubai or any other mid-eastern city winning the games any time soon - i just don't see it happening.

What about Southeast Asia - Bangkok, KL, or Singapore would all be good candidates in my opinion.

I think it will be either in North or South America. Buenos Aires would be a great location. But how about New York? Or San Fran?

I would love to see Hamburg getting the 2016 Olympics. It would be early enough to include the east end of the Hafencity development area into the olympic area. Or they could use the Grasbrook area at the south bank of the Elbe opposite of the Hafencity area. By that time it could be already abandoned industrial area needing redevelopment (Hamburg's port area is slowly moving westwards).
But as already mentioned, no european bid will have a chance for 2016. Therefore I go for Buenos Aires.
