Like myself, you’ve more than likely spent hours on YouTube searching and watching Thailand vloggers. While this post isn’t going to list every single vlogger out in Thailand, I do want to share some of my favourites.
For me, I’m based up in Chiang Khong or Phuket when away from the UK. So when I first started looking for people vlogging in Thailand I was looking for vloggers in that niche.
Most of you would have come across 20 Seconds in Thailand, Bangkok 112 etc… I’m going to try and keep away from the ‘big hitters’ and keep this list to Thailand vloggers that have around 5K subscribers or less – At the time of this post.
You may be thinking of starting a YouTube channel or just looking for some inspiration, while some YouTubers complain about the monetisation or that there is no room for another channel… You’d be surprised at some of the stats!
- YouTube has 2 billion users worldwide making it one of the most popular social networks worldwide as of April 2019. The only social network that has more monthly active users is Facebook.
- YouTube is available in a total of 80 different languages, this covers 95% of the Internet population. Facebook is available in 43 languages.
- Over one billion hours of videos on YouTube are watched every day!
- More than 70% of YouTube watch time comes from mobile devices.
You can view more stats over at the YouTube Press page.
The First Video On YouTube
YouTube was created back in 2005 on valentines day by Chad Hurley, Steve Chen, and Jawed Karim. They knew each other from working together at another Internet start-up, PayPal.
The very first video on YouTube is from Jawed Karim called ‘Me at the zoo’ and was uploaded on April 24th 2005.
I don’t vlog myself, very little editing skills! And I don’t think I’m a person that does well on camera. I’m always interested in seeing what others are getting up to in and around Thailand and there are many YouTube channels out there to enjoy.
From the above stats, you can see why some would start to vlog. The reach of viewers is mindblowing and if you can get to film your day to day life in an interesting and engaging way, why not!
We take in media in very different ways and vlogging is becoming a go-to media for finding out information. It’s a really good addition at driving visitors to a site or blog. We take in information easier in short bursts and watching vlogs is an easy way of doing this.
Also, the other big driver for starting a vlog would be for an income. Some of the viewing numbers of the bigger Thailand vloggers are crazy! You can check out information on a channel over at Social Blade. Many are now able to make a living out of a Thailand based/informational YouTube channel.
So let’s get started with the list! Hopefully, you find something you like and maybe a vlogger or two that you’ve not come across before! I’ve also tried to keep this list it to vloggers that are actively uploading videos. I will update this list as and when I find someone new 🙂
This is Mick
This guy deserves way more subscribers!
He’s basically riding his motorbike around Thailand to visit all 77 provinces. Very unique and I don’t think I’ve come across another vlogger doing this. Mick is fast becoming my favourite Thailand youtuber!
I don’t know much about this guy, but found him from the below video and it’s amazing!
The Good Farang
Genuinely love watching these videos, nice mix of day to day life. Positive, up beat and showing how much he loves Thailand 🙂
Warren Gerdes TV
Really enjoy watch Warren’s channel, I’m by no means an active member but the live chat’s are good fun and informative.
Nice mix of videos on Ian’s channel, from Tech to air quality and more.
I came across Ian’s channel while looking for people flying drones in Thailand. Being an avid drone flyer myself I love watching what others have filmed.
Based up in Chiang Mai and gives a really nice perspective of the area away from the tourist traps.
Thai With Sarah
I came across Thai With Sarah when looking at videos to help with learning Thai.
So far I’m really enjoying the lessons that she’s putting out and she’s also teamed up with Brett Whiteside from Learn Thai from a White Guy on some of her videos.
An American vlogging in Thailand sharing his experiences living as a foreigner in Thailand. Really enjoy these vlogs and the journey that Joe takes you on with day to day life.
I’ve only come across this channel a month or so ago, but from the looks of things he’s been vlogging for around a year now.
Nice vlogs on expat lifestyle, Thai food, people and culture.
I’ve been following this guy for sometime now and didn’t really spot the number of subscribers! Another vlogger that really does diverse more subs!
The K Spot
OK so not quite a Thailand vlogger as such, but Keith’s channel is worth a look! Plus he’s a fellow techie 🤓
Based in Thailand, his channel full of reviews and tips for drones and cameras.
Amazing Chiang Mai
Amazing Chiang Mai, showing you Thailand’s Rose of the North – Chiang Mai.
Dan About Thailand
Dan does weekly vlogs from around Thailand and daily life. You may have already come across Dan’s channel via ThaiVisa, as I’m sure everyone who looks for information online about Thailand will have landed on the ThaiVisa website.
Another channel I’m surprised that doesn’t have more subscribers! Very informative and showing a side of Thailand most won’t get to see. Really worth checking out the channel and subscribing to.
Conclusion – Thailand Vloggers
So were any of these Thailand vloggers on your subscription list? If no I hope you found some of my picks interesting.
Do you have a favourite Thailand YouTuber that you would like to share? If so leave a comment below with a link to the YouTube channel!
Thai Talk With Paddy
I’ve put this channel outside of the main list as he has over 45K subs! But thought the channel was worth a mention. Thai-speaking Australian that go around Sydney talking to people in Thai. Some of the videos he’s pretending to not know Thai or very little Thai and getting some funny reactions.
Part of why I like this channel a lot as he does Thai and English subtitles for the conversations. So apart from being a very entertaining channel, you also get to pick up on learning some Thai 🙂
