My Top 10 Fave YouTubers

Increasingly, I find myself watching YouTube more than TV. There’s a lotta good content out there. You can choose what you want to see, when you want to see it. The old adage “There’s nothing good on TV,” definitely does not apply to YouTube. I am especially interested in travel vlogs. Here are my Top 10 fave YouTubers. (Channel descriptions are in quotes.)

10. The Food Ranger is a YouTuber who has amazing adventures around the world. He has great rapport with everyone he meets. A really good guy. “My name is Trevor James and I live to eat and travel. I live for street food and local food, and I’m traveling to taste it. I’m a hungry traveler that’s currently living abroad in Chengdu, Sichuan China, eating as much delicious food as I can.”

9. CaseyNeistat is a creative genius, storyteller, and movie maker. I am awed by the way he creates. “Hi, I live in New York City and love YouTube.”

8. Travel With My Dear is not necessarily a travel vlog (with an onscreen personality,) but rather a travel channel with visually stunning videos. This channel is an inspiration to me, because most of the vids were filmed with a smartphone. “We live to travel the world, capture beautiful moments on film and choreographing each frame to the music.”

7. vagabrothers are two brothers who explore culture and the amazing aspects of travel. “We’re Alex and Marko. We LIVE to TRAVEL. Our journey of CULTURAL and CULINARY DISCOVERY takes us to some of the MOST INTERESTING PLACES in the WORLD. Stay curious, keep exploring, and we will see you on the road!”

6. uelshannelle is a traveling couple from Australia. They have a very pleasant and refreshing onscreen personality. “We are Uel & Shannelle from Sydney! You may have seen us on such shows as My Kitchen Rules. We love Jesus, cooking, travel, photography & FOOD! Join our adventures as we travel the world and show you a glimpse of what WE see!”

5. arakakizemiTV is a personal favorite. Always cool to see what your friends are up to. “These videos are produced to showcase the various projects and extracurricular activities of the students of the Osaka Gakuin University, especially the students of the Faculty of Business Administration, Department of Hospitality Business Administration.”

4. gabebondoc was an unknown singer-songwriter who became a YouTube sensation. It’s what I like best about YouTube. So organic. “Guitarist/Singer/Songwriter/Dad”

3. Wong Fu Productions of course. What kinda asian would I be if this weren’t on my list? “Short films, sketches, and vlogs! We like to tell stories, whether they’re funny, sad, or thoughtful. As emerging artists and filmmakers, we hope to continue to improve our craft, grow as a company, and reach people with our work.”

2. Strictly Dumpling is Mike Chen’s foodie vlog. Engaging personality and amazing food. “I LOVE FOOD!!!! So you have just entered my food universe where I will show you all the best places to eat and some awesome recipes!!!”

1. Mark Wiens has been a long-time favorite. I first found his channel when I was preparing for my missions trip to Thailand. This guy is passionate about food & travel. And, he has his trademark reaction/expression when eating something delicious. “Food is the reason you should travel, and on my channel you’ll watch videos that feature incredibly delicious food and travel tips. After graduating from university, I decided to travel for food. Eventually I ended up in Thailand, where I met my wife. My wife and I are now based in Bangkok, Thailand, but we travel frequently to find delicious food.”

Hope to appear on my own Top 10 someday…
