item - Dahon Roo bikes - not available in the US (Dahon web site), ARE available in Australia
item - Building in background - hmmm not much there, just that it is not incompatible with what is around here

So my second guess is Australia, perhaps Brisbane or Darwin.

[edit] if not in China or Taiwan then I suppose Macau is left over...
there are some interesting observations taking place here ......
the bonus question has been solved ...... the bikes are made in Chezh Republic
but the location where the photo was taken is not yet been guessed right .....

in many ways most answers are WAY off ..... than again its a pretty special place
great to get around with a pair of Dahons for sure....
keep on guessing

Looks like we first have to sort out the continent/ocean. I have had a go with Australia and Asia which seems far off the mark. North America also has not gotten warm responses. Perhaps South America is next? Brazil has been mentioned. Europe?

EG Czech republic?
