Welcome back again to LIVETRAVELASIA Today is a follow up guide to last week’s Hongdae guide where I covered the walking street and shopping areas of Hongdae which it’s popular for, but Hongdae is ultimately a party location to most Koreans. It’s where you come eat, drink, dance, sing, and repeat those steps in whatever order or combination that suits you all through the night until the subway opens up again at 5am so you or your friends can drag your drunk self back home. Koreans even have a name for this process called rounds or cha like 1cha, 2cha, 3cha. I will cover the basic 3 rounds I do or did here in my single days so you can get a feel for this place but honestly everyone does hongdae differently. So first thing’s first, get to hongdae station on the popular line 2 or if it’s after 12 just tell your cab to take you to hongdae and there isn’t a driver who’s isn’t going to not know about this place. From here most people take exit 9 and follow the crowds toward the main walking street and find a pocha which all Koreans can probably agree is their 1st round to kick off any night of drinking. Pocha btw, is a Korean restaurant that focuses on mainly serving alcohol at an affordable price compared to a bar or club. Meat and Soju basically. You have several options all scattered throughout Hongdae but feel free to explore the outskirts of Hongdae where you have cheaper prices. If you’re walking up the walking street, I like hanshin pocha located across the major intersection to the left which is understood by Koreans who go there as a place for groups of guys to meet up with new groups of girls to start the night so feel free to chat up the opposite sex around your table. Unfortunately I didn’t get a video of the place since me and Mayu ate at another all you can eat one but it’s a big red tent like place you can’t miss. So by this time you should have a good buzz on and this is where people’s preferences for round 2 or 2cha vary greatly but it’ll all happen around this area. It seems every year I go to Hongdae, there are new clubs and bars popping up everywhere or the names of the clubs change but usually the most happening clubs are located right here in this stretch of road and all the young cute girls can be seen lining up for them. Be warned however, these clubs usually have an age limit meaning you can’t get in if you’re too old and if you enter for free because it’s early, you won’t be able to leave until around 12 unless you pay. Personally the huge lines have turned me off and had me walking straight past it but this might be your thing like a majority of the younger crowds here. However, If you walk past these clubs and make a right before the park, you’ll walk past some more pochas to your left and arrive at this bar, Thursday Party. Now there’s also a Thursday party in Itaewon but this is the place every expat in Korea knows about. It’s the home away from home with foosball and beerpong create a college frat party atmosphere. And foreign guys tend to come here as well because Korean girls who are interested in foreign guys also come here so it saves the work of filtering out girls who can’t speak English or aren’t attracted to foreign guys. Be warned however if you’re Korean American like me, even though you’re more American than the Jamaican guy next to you, the girls here will probably treat you less of an American because you look Korean and that can get quite annoying when they start accusing me of acting American. Like bitch, I got nothing to prove to your ignorant ass. Haha Anyways, aside from the one off standard shenanigans you encounter in any college dominated bar scene, I still enjoy the atmosphere here and it’s a great place to meet other expats and start your night off. If neither of these bar and club options sound like your scene however, you’ll also find some underground type clubs around this area, and quieter bars around this area that seem to cater more to the working professional types who meet here after work. But lets be honest here, you can start your night anywhere but ultimately you’ll go wherever your partner wants to go and this is where you might end up repeating rounds 1-2 several times

Real Reason I Quit My 6 Figure American Job to Travel in Asia, Moving and Living in Bangkok Thailand
 
10:08
I quit my successful career after 13 years at America's top bank to travel in Asia. Best decision of my life. It's been 4 years since I moved to Bangkok Thailand. Now I guess I can consider myself a resident of Bangkok Thailand and certainly Asia as I have no plans to go back to the life I left. I made a video about "Why I Live in Bangkok Thailand" https://youtu.be/R-DHAEKYAJY as my friends have always wondered why I chose to live here in particular but now my most frequently asked question is "why I decided to leave" my established life in America in the first place. Obviously I can't explain in full detail all my reasons and thoughts in a single short video, but I hope this video serves as a short intro to my channel about Living and Traveling in Asia. There you will find short vlogs and in depth discussions and neighborhood guides to my city, Bangkok Thailand, and my backyard, Asia. Lets travel Asia and the World!

Thank you for the support! ___________ ***Guys Thank you for the overwhelming response to this video and I can totally understand you may have lots of questions about living out here... Honestly I made this video to just give mainly my friends and family my reasons for living out here as they couldn't understand why I'd leave everything I had in America and they had misconceptions about life out here. I am in no way encouraging others or proposing that life out here is for everyone. My situation was that I had a bit of savings to purchase my condo and was able to support my lifestyle with a part time job with the low cost of living so I could dedicate more time to my passion which is film making and photography. Playing more videogames fell in there somewhere too. Haha. Anyways, These were my reasons I am living out here and possibly some of it may be your reasons for wanting to maybe live out here. However, is that the only lifestyle available out here? No. Are there other kinds of people who live out here and have their own reasons for loving Bangkok? Yes. Do I recommend you make drastic lifestyle changes and move here like I did? No. I was actually on a 1 year unpaid leave when I decided to take a vacation out here so even I still made sure I had a fall back in case I didn't like life out in Asia. If you do think life out here is for you, I recommend you first take a vacation out here and experience for yourself if life out here and what I am saying is true for you. Whatever the case, I hope to cover many of these topics in the vlogs to come, but for now I've tackled two of the main questions I keep getting in the comments to the best of my knowledge, based on my experiences, and my honest opinion which is how to make a living out here, and how to buy a condo. I hope this helps answer some of the questions you may have. https://youtu.be/UupXRetwaGI ___________ ***Your Support Would be Apprecaited on PATREON*** https://www.patreon.com/livetravelasia

How to Get to and Around Koh Chang, The Best Island in Thailand in 4K 2017

Izzy) [NCS Release] Music provided by NoCopyrightSounds. Watch: https://youtu.be/FZC-XgLk8O4 Free Download / Stream: http://ncs.io/IntoTheWildYO (Narration Transcript) Hello Hello, welcome back to live travel Asia. So today we are back in Thailand and taking a short trip to Koh Chang, my favorite little island in SE Asia. One thing to note is that there aren’t any flights to this lesser known island but it’s easy to find a bus from Bangkok. I recommend you book a VIP bus if you’re staying in Khaosan with one of the many travel agencies as the buses felt a bit more comfortable but we decided to take the government bus 999 from the Ekkemai bus station as it’s closer to where we live in Bangkok and its about 2-3 dollars cheaper. The roughly 6 hour bus trip should cost you from 8-15 dollars one way so just go with the most convenient one. You’ll end up at Centerpoint Pier where you can book your place on the ferry to Koh Chang which should only costs about 2 dollars and you can even book your return bus ticket which can be open ended as well. The ferry ticket includes this short 5 minute shuttle ride to the ferry as well so don’t freak out about how you’ll get there because you don’t see the ocean from where the bus drops you off. Well, we ended up taking the Songtheaw, which is a Truck Taxi for those of your unfamiliar with the term. Although we initially planned on renting a motorcycle at the pier as it would save us having to pay for additional transport to the hotel and back to the pier. However, they wouldn’t let us rent a motorcycle without depositing our passports even though we showed them my Thai Drivers License. And because neither of us brought our passports, that wasn’t an option for us. Anyways, the songtheaw worked out because it gave us time to book our hotel which we procrastinated on doing. I also forgot that Lonely Beach where we wanted to stay is almost an hour away as its the fartherst beach from the pier so it wouldn’t have been a good idea to rent a motorcycle anyways. I do recommend it if you’re staying at white sands beach however which is a short trip from the pier. Ok so it isn’t a 5 star resort but we’d be in Phuket if that’s the kind of trip we wanted anyways. Oceanfront view, clean, includes breakfast, and most importantly affordable. It was the perfect base for our 3 night trip that cost just over $100 dollars. We ended up renting the motorcycle from Magic Garden, a popular bar/ restaurant place super close to our hotel. I’ll extensively feature this place later in the video for our dinner but we first headed north to the only major major market in this island, Tesco, to get some groceries. So half way back to lonely beach from Tesco, you’ll find a row of fruit vendors on your right hand side. Surprisingly they had very good prices on fruit which is rare as touristy places tend to have high fruit prices. We were there in June which is a great fruit season so this also may have played a huge role in the low prices. Haha okay so I am not a big fan of Durian but they were definitely cheap. We instead settled for the queen of fruit mangosteen instead which was ridiculously cheap here. So after our fruit shopping we were able to catch the sunset a little past 6 at the Kai Bae Viewpoint located on top of the hills right before you descend down to the Lonely Beach area. Loved it as there weren’t many other tourists, so the only sound you’ll hear are the Cicadas in the trees. We definitely enjoyed cooling down in the pool, and getting into relax mode, only problem was that we were pretty hungry at this point. To wrap up our night, Mayu and I went to my favorite restaurant and bar in Koh Chang, Magic Garden. It’s located toward the southern edge of Lonely Beach. It has a super chill and romantic atmosphere compared to the more rowdy central areas of lonely beach that caters more to party seeking backpackers that frequent this area. One thing to note is that the seats fill up fast here especially during high season. Try to get one of the cool cushioned areas on the lower level but those are usually the first to fill up. As for the food, this place has a something for everyone at very reasonable prices and generous portions. I haven’t been disappointed with any of the dishes I’ve ordered here in the past especially their curries.

How to Get a Thai Drivers License in Bangkok on a Tourist Visa without a Work Permit
 
10:12
Vlog #44 Getting a Thai Drivers License Part 1 BTS Bang Chak, Bang Chak Department of Land Transportation Bangkok Thailand 01:07 getting a medical certificate 02:54 documents needed 06:10 physical test 07:20 receiving the drivers license Check out Vlog #45 for the additional process of taking a driving class and passing the written and driving tests to receive a motorcycle license if you don’t already have a license from your home country. It’s the same process for also receiving a car license if you don’t have a car drivers license. The documentation steps are exactly the same as this guide so the next vlog is just a supplement for those that don’t already have a driver’s license from their home country and have to take the class and test in Thailand. Link to the Vehicle and/or License Affidavit on the Thai US Embassy website: https://th.usembassy.gov/u-s-citizen-services/local-resources-of-u-s-citizens/notaries-public/vehicle-license-affidavit/ Link to make an appointment at the US Embassy for Notaries Service which the Vehicle and/or License Affidavit Falls under. https://th.usembassy.gov/u-s-citizen-services/acsappointment/ Link to Google Maps Locations visited on Vlogs including this one https://goo.gl/maps/5NATGZWPDsR2 Music by Ukiyo: Cold Feet, No Limit http://soundcloud.com/ukiyoau/ http://www.facebook.com/ukiyoau/ (Narration Transcript) What’s up guys, welcome back to livetravelasia. So today I am going to renew my driver’s license but the process is exactly the same as when I applied for a new driver’s license so I wanted to share this process as it’s super easy and cheap. Another way to explain where this clinic is Is that it’s located across the street on the opposite end of Bang Chak Station than where the Department of Land Transportation is. Ok so this isn’t as complicated as it sounds but I was being detailed for those people in peculiar circumstances so I try to cover all the bases however, all you really need to bring is a passport, get your medical certificate for 100 baht at the clinic and either bring an Embassy address verification or an original work permit if you have one. As for the copies, they know what to copy and it’s only a baht per page. You should also bring a valid driver’s license from your home country if this is your first time applying as it’ll save you from having to take the Thai classes and tests. If you don’t have a valid drivers license wait for our next vlog that’ll cover the class and testing as I try to get a motorcycle license which I didn’t have in the States. So given how easy and cheap this process is I don’t understand why so many expats in Thailand, including my friends risk fines driving without a license and deal with carrying their passports everywhere and risk losing it. I also use my license instead of a passport as collateral when renting a scooter. Btw, unlike the states, they print the ID for you on the spot. I’ve also heard some places require photos but at the Bang Chak office they take the photos for you.

Getting Around Chiangmai in 2019 on a Budget, Airport, Taxi, Motorcycle, AirBNB, Places to Eat
 
11:51
You're planning a trip to Chiangmai and you want to know how to get into the city and around on a budget. This is the vlog for you. We actually went on Chinese New Years so the prices were relatively high compared to other seasons but in hindsight we did okay with the prices. This time we wanted to experience a more local side of Chiangmai so we rented an AirBNB outside the old town and took a motorcycle up there. On our first night we checked out China town being it was Chinese New Years and that's about the most touristy thing we will do this whole trip. Stay tuned for our next vlog which will go over our relaxing day in Chiangmai, our 3rd vlog where we will show you all the sights you have to see, and our final vlogs that will go over the nightlife and the local scene.

Koh Chang Travel Guide, What to do, Abandoned Piers and Hidden Waterfalls (Klong Neung)

Download / Stream: http://ncs.io/NoDoubtYO (Narration Transcript) Hey guys, welcome back to Livetravelasia. Today is going to be one of the two full days we will be in Koh Chang and the more adventurous part of of trip where we will checkout some scenic piers and eventually make our way to the amazing Klong Nung Waterfall. So this is Centerpoint Pier. It feels quite hectic when you arrive here with all the locals shouting at you to use their taxi’s. But for the most part it’s quite peaceful and relatively deserted. However, my favorite pier is located further down on the eastern side of the island. Anyways, this is a good point of reference as this is when the road running alongside the ocean starts to become super scenic Guys, look out for this pier if you’re in the area as blasting down this pier in your scooter feels like you’re literally flying over the ocean and a feeling you don’t want to miss out on. If you have a bit more time, bring some snacks and experience the total tranquility below this pier as you hear the gentle water echoing around you.. I imagine it’ll also be a chill place to swim with the fishes under some shade as well. So this is where we start our hike up to Klong Nonsi Waterfall. The only directions one of the few blogs we came across had for us is that there were going to be blue waterpipes which you don’t want to hold onto as it’ll break and the locals will come come swarming totally pissed that you cut off their water supply, and about some big boulder that’ll be easier to walk around which means you’re near. However, there are big boulders everywhere that just keep getting bigger. What all the blogs failed to mention is that there are spiders webs everywhere which tells us nobody really goes up to this waterfall. We had to constantly clear a path with a stick we found. But the things we literally ran across everywhere were fireants So right about now we were getting worried cause we were about 50 minutes into the 20-30 minute trek the other blogs were estimating to trek up the fall with every bigger boulder giving us false hope. We decided to just climb over the boulder against the advice of the other guides as the way around was infested with spider and overgrown bushes. And another 10 minutes later Harder the trek, the better the view? In this case I would have to wholeheartedly agree. Not only that, we had the whole waterfall to ourselves with not another soul in sight. So we hope you enjoyed this Vlog and if you could do us a big favor, help our channel grow by subscribing and check back with us next week for more vlogs from Asia.

How to Buy a Condo House and Make a Living Teaching English in Bangkok Thailand
 
01:10:47
I address two of the main questions I keep getting in my comments section. How and why I bought a condo in Thailand instead of renting and how I make a living out here particularly teaching English. 00:15 Why I am Making this Video 02:32 How to Buy a Condo in Thailand 49:15 How to Make a Living in Thailand This is not a typical vlog but I made an exception as many people have expressed great interest in knowing about my experiences in regards to these two issues. I may even take it down in the future as these types of Q&A videos, although popular are troll magnets and I'd rather just keep to my feel good videos and avoid the drama. I recommend you checkout some of the videos from other Thai vloggers such as: https://www.youtube.com/user/PopeKael https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCyoXATB6m1bmlVDYyKyRY_g https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCVXPv9Zg34vrexMMlmwLnXQ for additional nitty gritty information about living and traveling in Thailand to supplement information I haven't yet covered on this channel as I slowly build up my channel. If you do however want to assist me with gear and expenses for my videos or help ultimately reach that goal of becoming a full time vlogger so I can make even more videos, I have also created a Patreon page you can support my channel through https://www.patreon.com/livetravelasia ADDITIONAL INFO I DIDN'T COVER DUE TO TIME RESTRAINTS It's my "opinion" that you consider buying your condo near a "central plaza mall" just as much as buying close to a BTS or MRT line as the central malls are a huge hub for Thai's with banks, cinemas, grocery shopping etc, that will make your life not only easy but also help maintain the resell value of your home. Another reason you should buy a local condo that mainly locals buy is that there's a technical requirement that most of the units be owned by Thais for a foreigner to buy a condo as well. As for getting a loan to buy a condo, when I asked a loan officer from a bank, as a foreigner you only qualify for 50% Loan to Value, meaning financing of only half of the total value of the condo, and you need to provide pay slips to prove your have legitimate income in Thailand. There may or may not be more or less requirements to this as I never ended up getting a loan and it's been over 2 years since I talked to a loan officer. You should also try to get a condo on a higher level not only for the view but the lower levels tend to have issues with mold and humidity which become a huge issue down the road especially if you travel frequently and don't want to return to a moldy room. They are also much louder being closer to the roads. It's my opinion that the extra money spent on a higher floor here is better spent than a larger room. Ultimately, I recommend you come out here and slowly form your own opinions and preferences around these topics and make decisions that you are confident with and only use the advice of others like me as a starting point to start your own journey in Asia.

How to Pass Thai Driver's License Tests in English for Motorcycle / Car (Written / Driving)
 
13:25
Vlog #45 Getting a Thai Drivers License Part 2 BTS Bang Chak, Bang Chak Department of Land Transportation Bangkok Thailand 00:47 day 1: make an appointment 01:36 day 2: classroom course 03:53 day 2: the written test 08:16 day 3: retesting 09:24 day 4: driving test / receive license Check out Vlog #45 for the additional process of taking a driving class and passing the written and driving tests to receive a motorcycle license if you don’t already have a license from your home country. It’s the same process for also receiving a car license if you don’t have a car drivers license. The documentation steps are exactly the same as this guide so the next vlog is just a supplement for those that don’t already have a driver’s license from their home country and have to take the class and test in Thailand. Link to Thai Driver's License Test Questions and Answers http://thaidriving.info/ (The test questions and answers were exactly the same as in the actual test so nothing has been updated as of Dec 2017. You should be able to pass by just studying the questions and answers. I recommend you print this out and review it during the 4 hour class) Link to Vlog #44 https://youtu.be/hpzxeU5lmaU Links from Previous Vlog #44 Link to the Vehicle and/or License Affidavit on the Thai US Embassy website: https://th.usembassy.gov/u-s-citizen-services/local-resources-of-u-s-citizens/notaries-public/vehicle-license-affidavit/ Link to make an appointment at the US Embassy for Notaries Service which the Vehicle and/or License Affidavit Falls under. https://th.usembassy.gov/u-s-citizen-services/acsappointment/ Link to Google Maps Locations visited on Vlogs including this one https://goo.gl/maps/5NATGZWPDsR2 Music by Ukiyo: No Limit http://soundcloud.com/ukiyoau/ http://www.facebook.com/ukiyoau/ (Narration Transcript) What is up guys welcome back to LIVETRAVELASIA So today is a followup guide to the previous vlog #44 where I went over how to apply for a new or renew a driver’s license without a course or test if you already have a valid driver’s license from your home country. I had a California Driver’s License and it worked. This vlog however will go over the process of applying for a new driver’s license if you don’t already have a drivers license which I had to do because I was only certified for a car on my CA Driver’s license and I wanted a motorcycle license. Now the first thing you have to do is make an appointment. There are only 5 slots per day so you may have to wait a while for the next appointment. Now I am not sure why we had to because the classes seemed to house more than 5 people but I am guessing the appointment is for an English class which they didn’t put us into anyways. So my guess is if you come before 8:30 you may not have to make an appointment. I actually recommend you come before 8:30 however so you have plenty of time to make the photocopy, submit the documents, take the physical test, and I recommend you get your medical certificate ahead of time when you come to make the appointment as I don’t think the clinic is open before 9. Be aware that there are longer lines in the morning. I made a super in depth guide to this part of the process in the previous vlog #44 so please check that out on the link in the description below. Now what’s going to differ from the process of the previous guide for those that don’t have a valid drivers license is the course and testing. They sent us up to the third floor to a big class being conducted in Thai and gave us this booklet with English translations for all the street signs and test questions to study. This does not go over everything you will be tested on for the written test as we will later found out. So checkout the link in the description below for the actual test questions on a site this cool expat made that you can review before taking the test. So after another 2 hours in class, we test After you get your paperwork, sit down and wait. You’ll eventually see people walking over to where they explain the road test and obstacle course. You’ll need to do a lot of monkey see monkey do as everything was conducted in Thai. What you’re seeing now is the obstacle course. They’ll test your ability to drive straight by making you driver over a raised section on the ground about a foot wide, than you’ll need to weave through cones about 2 meters wide. Before this section however, you’ll be going through an area with stop signs and turns replicating a real road. Just make sure you’re using your turn signals which you might miss because the explanation of the course was done in Thai. Thank you guys so much for checking out our vlog, I really hope it was informative and or amusing, Remember to show me some love by smashing that subscribe button and as always, checkbook with us every Saturday for new vlogs about living and traveling in Asia.

Hongdae Hongik University Station Guide Walking Street, Shopping, Street Performers, Kakao Store

00:13 hongdae overview 02:32 main walking street area 05:41 smaller walking street near clubs 06:08 quiet boutique shop, cafe area 08:32 hongdae kakao friends shop Vlog 35, Day 12 Mangwondong, Seoul Korea - Hongik University Station Music by Ukiyo:Cold Feet, No Limit http://soundcloud.com/ukiyoau/ http://www.facebook.com/ukiyoau/ Track: Defqwop - Say The Word (feat. The Ruins) [NCS Release] Music provided by NoCopyrightSounds. Watch: https://youtu.be/BXuiGkthhxY Free Download / Stream: http://ncs.io/SayTheWordYO Music by Artificial.Music (Aryll Fae): Nighttime Stroll (No Foley) https://soundcloud.com/artificial-music (Narration Transcript) Hey guys. Welcome back to LIVETRAVELASIA Today we are going to explore the Hongik University Area or Hongdae for short as the locals call it. So today, I am going to keep the narration in the beginning of this vlog just to give you a brief summarized lay of the land and leave you with a ton of raw footage of Hongdae at the end of the vlog for your enjoyment. To get to Hongdae, simply take the popular line 2 and exit Hongik University Station. It’s also a major stop for the airport line. Take exit 8 or 9 and you’ll see a mass of crowds heading towards the walking street. This is the main hangout of Hongdae, where you can enjoy delicious street food and watch street performers. You will also see countless of restaurants along the street. And because this is a college area catering to a younger crowd, you’ll find the prices surprisingly affordable if you’re coming from the Gangnam or Itaewon areas where they seem to get away with higher prices just because it’s an affluent area. From here, if you follow the crowds along the walking street and cross the major road lined with some bigger retail stores, you’ll come to a smaller walking street lined with smaller souvenir and clothing stores. This is a great place to buy unique souvenirs and the smaller streets running parallel to this street are lined with countless of food stands and Korean style bars where you can pregame to some soju and Korean style bar food on the way to the club area further along the walking street. If you want a more chill experience however, head left on the walking street and turn right onto another major street where you’ll see boutique clothing shops and desert cafes. It’s mainly frequented by girls doing some after work window shopping but it’s also a great place for couples to take an evening walk and try a lot of unique deserts such as rice wine ice-cream. There’s so much more I can say about Hongdae, my favorite hangout, but I’ll leave you with some raw footage of our walkabout instead so you can decide for yourself if you like it. What I am not covering in this vlog however is the bar and club areas located further along the walking street which I’ll cover in our next week’s vlog and the up and coming fringe areas of Hongdae to the north where there are some great restaurants and bars that cater to a slightly older crowd. (Extra Info About Hongdae couldn’t include in video due to time constraints) Hongdae. Korea has 3 major areas of nightlife, Gangnam is probably the most well known due to Psy’s song Gangnam style. You also have Itaewon which is the most popular hangout for foreigners as it’s located next to the US Army base. Hongdae on the other hand is the newest and most upcoming part of town located on the western end of Seoul unlike the other two on the Eastern side. There are two big universities, Hongdae, which specializes in the Arts and Ewha Women’s university. Both of them are known to have the cutest college girls in the city attending and that should explain why this area has become the popular hangout for the younger crowd as the men go where the water is good as Koreans would say. Although it’s been commercialized by the big corporations lately, it still tries to keep that distinct art school feel of the past. It’s personally my favorite hangout of the 3 as I appreciate the raw, young energy of Hongdae as opposed to what I feel is the somewhat pretentious and pompous crowds I’ve ran into in Gangnam. If you don’t want to be summarizing your resume with every person you strike up a conversation with Hongdae is for you although I sort of feel my days are numbered here as I feel older each year I visit. However, more and more bars have been springing up in the fringe areas of Hongdae that cater more to the older crowd particularly towards the opposite end of the street across the subway.

Bangkok Animal Cafe Reviews and Comparison, Little Zoo Cafe, Hops, Dog in Town
 
08:15
Vlog #47 We visit 3 of the most popular Animal Cafes in Bangkok Little Zoo Cafe, Hops, Dog in Town Cafe Wat Sanam Nua, Koh Kret Island, Ko Kret Island, OTOP Center 00:07 about pet cafes in Bangkok 01:15 dog in town cafe - ekkamai 03:34 hops - siam 05:33 little zoo cafe - siam Music by Joakim Karud: Classic, Canals, Love Mode, Fresh Start http://youtube.com/joakimkarud http://soundcloud.com/joakimkarud And by Ukiyo: No Limit http://soundcloud.com/ukiyoau/ http://www.facebook.com/ukiyoau/ Narration Transcript What’s up guys, welcome back to LIVETRAVELASIA So today we are going to show you 3 popular Pet Cafes in Bangkok, Dog in Town Cafe in Thonglor, Hops Cafe in Siam, and the very popular Little Zoo Cafe also in Siam which is known to have exotic animal as well as Dogs. Anyways, anyone who’s lived in Thailand will tell you this but the Thai’s love their pets and it’s no surprise that Bangkok is littered with these Pet cafes as the small condos that most of us live in do not support a pet owning lifestyle. This is why it seems there are new pet cafes popping up all the time, and as a big animal lover, Mayu is always asking me to visit them with her so I’ve documented our visits over the past year to give you a feel for this very popular past time particularly with the younger girls in Bangkok. So the first pet cafe we will show you is Dog in Town Cafe which is located in the quiet and affluent neighborhood of Ekamai. I chose to show you guys this Cafe first because It’s the latest cafe we visited sometime back in November and my camera as well as my shooting technique is the best out of the 3 haha. But seriously this cafe was our favorite out of the 3 for two reasons, the quality of the food and drinks and it’s overall chill atmosphere. As you can see the dogs are super chill and don’t mind being petted here for the most part. We did have a bit of a rucks however when the vets came for the annual checkup. It’s amazing how these dogs can sense the vets who only come once a year! So if you’re looking for a traditional dog cafe with decent snacks, a chill atmosphere, and with a clean relatively smell free interior, Dog in Town Cafe would be our recommendation. But if you’re looking for something more unique or Ekkamai is too out of your way than stick around for the other 2 dog cafes in Siam we’ve also visited. Ok so Hops is the second pet cafe and the first of the 2 pet cafes located in the popular part of town in Siam. It’s also a dog only pet cafe like Dog in Town Cafe previously and they have similar breeds. This is because Thai’s love Huskies, Corgies, and French Bulldogs. Huskies in particular are very popular with the Thai girls. I think it’s possibly because they represent a cold wintery place that snows which seems to be every Thai girl’s fantasy. I actually feel sort of sad seeing all these huskies in Bangkok however because I feel bad for them having to deal with the heat here but than again, the families that can afford to raise such large pets can afford to have the AC blasting in their homes as well so maybe I am worrying for no reason. Anyways, compared to the previous cafe, the prices for the mandatory 1 item were about the same but the drinks and pastries were lacking here. I felt the drinks were made with little to no expertise and the pastries were probably purchased elsewhere. Definitely not as good as the freshly made smoothies and hot out of the oil fries I had at dog in town cafe. This place had a much more lively atmosphere however with most of the staff always involved in playing with the animals. However, Mayu and I didn’t particularly enjoy this place as much as things seemed very hectic for our taste, and the white huskies were a bit too aggressive fighting off the smaller dogs for attention from the handlers and were constantly barking at random people walking by the cafe. Because the cafe is located in the middle of a busy street with windows everywhere, the cafe itself isn’t a relaxing setting either. But having said this, if you enjoy seeing dogs playing and being active, this would be the right cafe for you. Now the last cafe we will cover is the little zoo cafe We went on a late afternoon on our first visit and decided to come another day after seeing long lines of school girls waiting for their turn to go in. On our second visit, we went in the evening and there were barely any crowds but unfortunately the animals were mostly exhausted and sleeping from all the afternoon action. If you are going to visit I recommend you come early on a weekday. Now the reason however we visited this location first before the other two cafes was because this is the most popular pet cafe in Bangkok. And for good reason too. This particular pet cafe is known to have exotic animals. And I apologize for the lacking picture quality as I was still using my iPhone to Vlog at this time.

The Royal Crematorium at Sanam Luang in Bangkok Thailand 2017
 
08:21
Lumpini Park Rama 9, The Royal Crematorium at Sanam Luang, Bangkok, Thailand 01:40 getting into sanam luang 03:19 the royal crematorium 05:19 the exhibits Music by Ukiyo: Cold Feet, The Little Things, No Limit http://soundcloud.com/ukiyoau/ http://www.facebook.com/ukiyoau/ (Narration Transcript) Ok so a quick disclosure here, Mayu totally quoted wrong, she checked again on her Japanese website and it was 1.7 billion Yen. When I googled it, Forbes was quoting 90 million dollars and 30 million for the funeral pyre alone which is the main central structure. Either way this is a significant structure as we were soon about to find out. First of all what is Sanam Luang? Sanam Luang is actually the wide open area located in front of the Grand Palace. Currently the Royal Crematorium of the the late King Rama 9 is located there so that is what people are usually referring to when they say Sanam Luang. So when we arrived at Sanam Luang all I can say is we were amazed at how many people were still coming a month after the funeral to pay their respects to the king. As a matter of fact, as I am making this vlog, the structure has been authorized to stay up for another month to accommodate for all the visitors before it’s torn down. We expected a lot of people, but it was another thing to witness it in person and it just goes to prove just how much the late king was loved by Thais. So we finally arrived at Sanam Luang and what a sight it was… To be totally honest with you, I was a bit surprised at first because I thought it being a funeral pyre, people would be in a more solemn mood, but in the humble opinion of this non Thai observer, the radiant, pyre shining in the middle of the night illuminating everyone around and making it almost impossible to frown in front of such magnificence, it felt like the king’s final gift to Thais and I imagined he would be happy being among his people, which is ultimately what he believed to be his place in this world. I simply felt privileged to have witnessed this. At this point I’ll just leave you with some more footage of this very special place as I don’t think my narration can do true justice to it. So after marveling at the central structure, we proceeded into the exhibit areas that housed the items used in the funeral along with explanations of how they were crafted and their significance. All I could say is wow. When I realized how everything was painstakingly handcrafted, and all the man-hours that were put into the preparation of this funeral, it really hit home just how much the Thai’s love their king and how much they wanted to make sure his sendoff was second to none especially in light of the fact that these structures are temporary and will be torn down soon after the funeral. Hey guys, thanks again for watching the vlog and I want to also take this time to fully disclose I am not an expert in Thai culture, I simply went to Sanam Luang as an observer, and if I have said anything to offend anyone I apologize ahead of time. Everything I have said however comes sincerely from a place of respect in my mind for the Thai people and the late king so I hope you can forgive my ignorance if I said anything offensive as that would certainly not have been my intention. Anyway, I really hope this video was informative or insightful, and I hope you visit us again next week.

Hanbok Rental for Gyeongbokgung Palace at Bukchon Hanok Village Guide in 4K Seoul, Korea

However, today we arrived early so that we can spend some time shopping around for a Hanbok in the bukchon hanok village located between Gyeongbokgung palace and Changdeokgung palace. We arrived at Anguk station where we exited the subway at exit 1 and headed straight up the street. Sure enough we ran into several hanbok rental shops. However, we felt the hanboks we saw were identical to the hanbok we rented 2 days before at Arirang Hanbok rental in the subway but just at a higher cost. Every Hanbok rental place we went to charged 10 dollars for 2 hours, and 4 for 15, however it's the options that get you. You need to rent an underskirt to make the hanbok puffy in the bottom, and the hair accessories to complete your look. However they were charging extra for those. They also usually tagged on another 5-10 dollars for what they deemed as "premium" hanbok which had additional embroidery. We kept going to different locations as we didn't have to pay any extra for those things 2 days before but eventually we gave into our schedule and settled for Gureumi Hanbok. This place didn't offer much more but the facilities seemed nicer and big private lockers they provided were a plus. One thing to note is that Mayu is 5 ft 8 inches tall, about 183 cm and thats pretty tall for an asian girl. She was limited to only about half of the dresses as the skirts would have been too high. Luckily we went to a larger hanbok rental store so we found one that we liked. You can chose the top and bottom separately and it's pretty hard to chose one when they all seem nice. We opted to just get a more traditional hanbok without embroidery to save the extra 5-10 dollars but Mayu liked the simple design as opposed to the fancier design from 2 days ago. We headed out of the hanbok rental shop to a busy street filled with street food vendors etc and made a left and entered gyeongbokgung palace through it's rear entrance on the east side. This is where the National Folk Museum of Korea is located. The sun was directly above us at around 2pm and it was so hot that we decided to visit the museum first. We were pleasantly surprised at how informative this museum is. If you had to pick, chose this one over the national museum in yongsan although the military museum in yongsan was our favorite of the 3. As for Gyeongbokgung palace we wondered around the vast palace grounds for over 2 hours taking pictures and videos. Super scenic but we came during a national holiday and it was full of 20 something year old girls and couples taking pictures. The Chinese are boycotting Korea so we didn't see any Chinese and foreigners were a rare sight. This probably means that if you go early at 9 when it opens when Koreans are working or at school, you won't run into the mass crowds like we did. The lighting was amazing and the wind blowing the leaves made for some cinematic shots however in the evening. One additional thing to note if you're coming in the evening, they will chase you out of the palace around 6 but they will close the rear entrance. I recommend you go to the pond with the pagoda, than the big lake with the iconic building in the center where the orchestra was doing a special holiday performance in the video, and finish off at the main courtyard as it wasn't fun circling back to the rear entrance only to have to walk all the way to the front after 2 hours of shooting and being on our feet. We rented the hanbok for 4 hours but if you're up for it, I recommend you try to find a place that rents the hanbok for more time, arrive early, and take pictures at gyeongbokgung palace in the morning, changdeokgung palace and the secret garden in the afternoon where there is plenty of shade under the trees, than finish off at bukchon hanok village for sunset as you get some amazing views on top of the hill amongst traditional Korean houses.

90 Day Report in Thailand Complete Step by Step Guide, Mail, Online, and Agencies
 
18:23
In this vlog I walk you step by step through all the ways to do a 90 day report in Thailand and also explore the Chamchuri Square Immigration Office to avoid going to Chaengwattana. 00:52 90 Day Report Overview 02:41 Method 1: Travel out of the Country 03:57 Method 2: Online Reporting 04:36 Method 3: Reporting by Mail 07:41 Method 4: Visiting the Office in Person 13:13 Using an Agency for 250 Baht to Avoid going to Chaengwattana Music by Ukiyo: Cold Feet, Fast Forward, Let Me Down, Friday, No Limit http://soundcloud.com/ukiyoau/ http://www.facebook.com/ukiyoau/ How to do the 90 day report by mail: Mail with REGISTERED MAIL to: 90 DAYS REGISTRATION, IMMIGRATION DIVISION 1 Chalermprakiat Government Complex 120 MOO 3, CHAENGWATTANA ROAD,SOI 7, LAKSI, BANGKOK. 10210 INCLUDE: RTURN ENVELOPE with 10 Baht Stamp Affixed and your Address TM.47 FORM (Download From Website or Keep Extra) Previous 90 DAY NOTIFICATION (If Applicable) Include Photocopies 1 PASSPORT PAGES (FRONT PAGE and LAST VISA, ENTRY STAMP, EXTENSION) 2 DEPARTURE CARD Mail it with REGISTERED MAIL to: 90 DAYS REGISTRATION, IMMIGRATION DIVISION 1 Chalermprakiat Government Complex 120 MOO 3, CHAENGWATTANA ROAD,SOI 7, LAKSI, BANGKOK. 10210 INCLUDE: RTURN ENVELOPE with 10 Baht Stamp Affixed and your Address TM.47 FORM (Download From Website or Keep Extra) Previous 90 DAY NOTIFICATION (If Applicable) Include Photocopies 1 PASSPORT PAGES (FRONT PAGE and LAST VISA, ENTRY STAMP, EXTENSION) 2 DEPARTURE CARD Narration Transcript: Ok so the second way to do the 90 day reporting is doing it by online although I personally don’t do it this way nor would I recommend it as the results seem varied and you’ll have to input personal information on a website that has security warnings. The reason why I even bother mentioning this method is simply because I know it exists, some people have had success, and I imagine it’ll eventually be working and reliable so you should be aware of it. For now however, being that the next method I’ll mention is reliable and in my opinion just as easy as the online reporting method, I don’t see a reason to risk the security warnings. So basically he tells me they do everything legal related from multiple and single reentry permits, finance visas, and even visa runs which they charge 3300 baht and it includes the bus travel as well as the hotel stay and guidance at the Thai embassy in Laos. You will have to pay for the visa itself however which is another 1000 baht. Honestly if I was traveling here I’d just checkout another country like Vietnam for a few months before coming back to Thailand but services like these do exist for those that just can’t get enough of Thailand in their initial 60 days. Thanks again guys for checking out this vlog. Currently I am editing this vlog on our trip in northern Thailand in Udonthani so I won’t be able to release 2 vlogs, but I am super excited to share all the fun content I have planned for you in the coming months which I promise will be for both viewers living in Thailand as well as those just planning a holiday.

Biking on Koh Kret Island, an Island in Bangkok
 
10:31
We guide you through Koh Kret Island, a small island located on the outskirts of Bangkok in Nonthaburi Province and ride rented bicycles to take in its chill atmosphere. Wat Sanam Nua, Koh Kret Island, Ko Kret Island, OTOP Center 00:47 how to get to koh kretn 01:58 koh Crete bicycle ride 03:17 the scenic pier 04:23 OTOP village 05:34 the slow life koh kret style Music by Birocratic: Garoto http://birocratic.lnk.to/allYL And by Ukiyo: Cold Feet, No Limit http://soundcloud.com/ukiyoau/ http://www.facebook.com/ukiyoau/ (Narration Transcript) Whats up guys, as stated, we are at Koh Kret a small island located just a little ways off the outskirts of Bangkok known for its chill vibes, their handmade clay pottery, and their amazing bike routes which I spent a whole day putting together in a music montage but lets knock out the logistics part of this vlog first so you can also come here and experience it for yourself. Now there are actually several ways you can get here but you’ll first need to head to a ferry point to take you into koh kret. We took the ferry across the river from a a temple facing the island called Wat Sanam Nuea. I am sure I totally butchered the pronunciation but you should be able to google map it based on the spelling below and get lost after missing a turn that eventually had us detouring 3 kms before we could finally U turn. No intersections, it’s a Bangkok thing you’ll understand when you get here. If you’re new to Bangkok however, I recommend you take a cab and I can’t see the fare costing more than 10 dollars. As for the ferry, it was only 10 Baht each way, and once you’re on the Island I highly recommend you rent a bicycle to get around. This will cost you 50 baht which is about a $1.50 and you’ll need check in your passport but I was able to just check in my Thai Driver’s License. So now that the logistics are out of the way, I present to you Koh Kret So for some reason we initially couldn’t find any OTOP stores and only ran into this cool looking local candy shop where we bought an ice cream bar and this other pottery store with a NO OTOP sign on the door. We suspect that many stores weren’t open because we came on a weekday. We eventually we hit a dead end and on the way back some lady told us the direction we were going was wrong and routed us away from the main road to her daughter’s store which was an OTOP store. Felt a bit deceived but she led us to an OTOP store that we would never have found so I guess it worked out. So guy this concludes our Koh Kret vlog. As you saw, it isn’t a tropical island paradise and technically its located in Nontaburi which is on the outskirts of Bangkok. However, when I went there, I only ran into about 3-4 other tourists so I highly recommend Koh Kret to anyone who wants insight into the real authentic local life here without having to travel too far away from Bangkok. Thank you so much for checking out the vlog and a big thank you to all the new subscribers! I really want to bring you guys more informative, interesting, and entertaining content so please feel free to comment below any suggestions about what you might want to see in our future vlogs.

The Best Street Food in Asia is not in a Night Market, Ruifang Taiwan Travel Guide
 
17:10
Don't believe the hype. The most authentic street food which was also the most affordable, was not in Shilin, Songshan, Jiufen, Keelung or the Ximending night markets. All night markets we went to and found the street food was hyped. Don't get me wrong, street food pretty much anywhere in Taiwan is great, but this food court in Ruifang, a short distance from a popular train station most tourists come to had the best street food. It was definitely popular with the Asian tourists, but we didn't see western tourists as we didn't see it covered in a vlog. Don't take our word for it, if you're in Taiwan, try it for yourself. Loved it so much we went back twice. If you're interested in more Taiwan travel videos, please checkout the playlist at the end of the video.

This is the first of a series of 3 videos. Links to following Video 2 https://youtu.be/Xz22Madqu3s Focuses on test centered around low light shooting using Cine 2, Slog 2, and Slog 3. Lots of tests to confirm noise levels through the ISO ranges and see if over exposing in Slog3 helps eliminate noise to an acceptable level. It's basically what prompts me to do the 3rd picture profile test a week later Video 3 https://youtu.be/JV303BrgV48 Focuses on tests in mainly low light situations and around getting vibrant colors particularly in the reds to explore the best color mode settings. Here I fine tune my custom EOSHD based custom picture profile setting not only to just get the best dynamic range but to strike a balance between great colors and equal saturation levels for my Slog 2/3 and Cine 2 picture profile settings for ease of color grading in post. I also discuss each of the picture profile settings in depth so that you can further adjust the settings to your liking Sony A7Sii/A7Rii/A7/A6500/A6300 Picture Profile Settings and EOSHD 3.0 Test The Commons in Thonglor, Bangkok, Thailand 00:12 Intro (how the test shots were setup) 02:06 Color Graded Test Shots 05:25 Non Color Graded Test Shots / Camera Picture Profile Settings 08:06 Color Grading Used on FCPX 10:01 Personal Opinion on Slog vs Cine Gamma Music by Ukiyo: Home, No Limit http://soundcloud.com/ukiyoau/ http://www.facebook.com/ukiyoau/ Music by Artificial.Music (Aryll Fae): And So It Begins https://soundcloud.com/artificial-music Current Gear I Use to Film My Vlogs SONY A7Sii: https://amzn.to/2Ieu6ut Zhiyun Crane Plus: https://amzn.to/2KiiFCN Zeiss Batis 2/25: https://amzn.to/2wAlDk7 Helios 44-2: https://amzn.to/2KUYzQ K&F M42 Lens Adapter: https://amzn.to/2GDovMS K&F ND Filter: https://amzn.to/2KXxWtF Iphone 7: https://amzn.to/2IzzRq9 Older Gear I Used that I No Longer Use GoPro Hero Session: https://amzn.to/2wAt8Ym S40 SteadyCam: https://amzn.to/2KYaEUD Disclaimer: This description contains affiliate links above, which means I may receive a small referral commission if you purchase something through the links, but it'll in no way effect your purchase price, and it'll support the channel and help me to continue to make videos like this.

Sunrise at Wat Doi Suthep, Golden Mountain Temple in Chiang Mai
 
12:59
For Vlog #8 we start our second day in Chiang Mai with a scooter ride up the mountain to Wat Phra That Doi Suthep, also known as, The Golden Temple in the Mountains in Chiangmai. We got up at 5:30 and was at the foot of the mountain at 6:30 just in time to see the monk procession. We headed up the very scenic road up Doi Suthep towards the temple. It's about a 25 minute drive and we can't miss it as there are many street vendors before the huge entrance. Be warned that this is a very cold ride up the mountain. It's deceiving as Old Town Chiang Mai was sunny and warm. The forecasts predicted that it would be warm all week, but it became apparent as we started to walk up the steps that it was going to rain soon. We arrived at the entrance to Wat Doi Suthep at around 7AM and pay the small 30 baht entrance fee which wasn't really being enforced. We than find a place to take off our shoes and walk around the temple to take some pictures before the tourists and tour buses arrive in numbers. It was very peaceful and only the sound of monks chanting along with locals praying to buddha by clapping wooden sticks together could be heard. The temple is beautiful with a gold covered tower as the central piece. Two large halls have a statue of buddha along with intricate drawings on the walls and ceilings. We than walk over to the viewpoint that overlooks ChiangMai city. It was a bit foggy but we could clearly see ChiangMai. When we arrived at a covered area supported by 4 large engraved pillars, it started to lightly rain. In about 5 minutes it was pouring rain and we were stuck on the cold tile floors with the rain pouring around us. When the rain went back to sprinkle about 10-15 minutes after, we ran over to our friends but lost our way and ended up at a convenience store that offered us a bit of warmth until we were kicked out of the store as the storekeeper had to use the bathroom and couldn't leave the store unattended. We than head down the temple around 8am and see the masses of tourists just arriving. We highly recommend you visit the temple before 8 to avoid them. We than have waffles and coconut snacks at the street vendors and head up the mountain to explore. After several kilometers of roads and my fuel running almost empty we decide to head back down the mountain. We do make a stop by an area marked as Doi Suthep National Park and saw a helpful map showing us the distances to other attractions. Unfortunately we didn't have enough gas to make it there and I was freezing at this point. We do recommend that you plan a full day to explore all of Doi Suthep if you do go to Chiang Mai and bring a raincoat just in case! We than head back down the mountain. Our buddies buy a raincoat at the street vendors. I drive down the mountain in my scooter mostly on neutral. We also witness a car accident on the way down from Doi Suthep. When we get into town, we fill up on our gas and head back to our Guesthouse to catch breakfast and get some rest before we go temple hopping around Old Town Chiangmai. Please tune in next week for the rest of the day. We visit the 3 major temples in Old Town ChiangMai and head back to the night bazaar to explore more of what the street market has to offer.

Bangkok to Chiang Mai by Nok Air, Don Muang Airport (DMK to CNX)
 
09:32
1st day of our Chiangmai / Pai trip. Some quick travel tips on the 2 major airports in Bangkok (DMK/BKK), budget airlines in SE Asia (Air Asia, Nok Air) how to get a prepaid sim card at the airport, and tips on how to use trip advisor to find budget guest houses. We are late getting up for our flight. We grab a taxi and take the toll way to Don Muang Airport. We give you some tips about the advantages of prebooking with your budget airline so that you can avoid the long lines. We also show you how you can avoid going through the initial Xray machines at the Thai airports which can sometimes be very full of tourists waiting to get their checkin baggage scanned by only bringing carry on luggage. General layout of the 2 terminals at Don Muang Airport are also shown. We accidentally get off on terminal one but we are able to walk to terminal 2 even after we walk pass ticketing. We than have some waffles at DMK airport and discuss the differences between Air Asia and Nok Air, 2 of the biggest budget airlines in Thailand. We show you the in flight snacks that Nok Air provides free of charge, and arrive in Chiang Mai Central Airport ahead of our friends who decided to take Air Asia and are delayed. We show you a booth that sells prepaid sim cards at the airport. We show you the pricing for True mobile's international plans. Lastly we discuss the how we personally use trip advisor to book guesthouses and the advantages and disadvantages of prebooking guesthouses. Stay tuned for our follow up video on our travels in Chiangmai. About our Channel: I am a Korean American travel blogger based out of Bangkok Thailand. I am originally from the United States and had a successful career as a loan officer for a large bank, but what was supposed to be a short solo travel in Southeast Asia ended up becoming an obsession, a lifestyle. Now I've purchased a condo here in Bangkok and decided to vlog about my life and travels here in Asia with my Japanese girlfriend Mayu. We live and travel on a budget, but I wouldn't say we are the type of travelers who grunge out in bare feet and dreadlocks or insist on 5 dollar hostels when we can just pay an extra 5 dollars for a guesthouse with a private shower. This also doesn't mean we are taking tour buses or obsessing over selfies. We try to venture out to where the locals go and stay as far away from the touristy bars and Chinese tour buses. I am not a "backpacker", "digital nomad", or a "tour bus vacationeer". There are plenty of vloggers who do that. Just an average American guy that can offer you a fresh perspective on living and traveling in Asia as I don't get treated like a foreigner because I can physically blend in here. If traveling and exploring Southeast Asia on a budget while balancing your time between sights, adventures, food, and experiencing the local culture sounds interesting to you, please subscribe and join us on our travels and we hope you find some inspiration to join us out here in Asia as well! Feel free to comment any questions or suggestions. It'll really mean a lot to see people are finding our videos helpful.

Best Local Area in Bangkok to Stay, Ari Street Walk and Hotel Review
 
36:28
We walk you through the new up and coming area of Ari at BTS Ari. It's an area that's known to be the new hipster's enclave but still maintains it's local flavor. We will do a street walk to give you an idea and finish off with a walk through of The Ari Rest Hostel and The Josh Hotel Ari and give you our impressions of the two places. Overall I would really recommend considering Ari as a place to base yourself out of for the longer vacationers who want that local feel or even new expats looking to find a relatively chill, laidback atmosphere near a BTS ___________ ***Instagram*** https://www.instagram.com/livetravelasia/ ***Facebook*** https://www.facebook.com/livetravelasia/ ___________ ***Checkout my google maps list for all the locations I visit on my vlogs*** https://goo.gl/maps/VkXX9wbP9WH2 ___________ Music by by Ukiyo: No Limit http://soundcloud.com/ukiyoau/ http://www.facebook.com/ukiyoau/ Music By Blue Wednesday: https://soundcloud.com/bluewednesday https://instagram.com/bluewednesdaybeats ___________ ***GEAR I USE TO FILM THE VLOGS*** Filmed on This: https://amzn.to/2Ieu6ut With This Lens: https://amzn.to/2wAlDk7 With This Thing: https://amzn.to/2KXxWtF Stabilized with This: https://amzn.to/2KiiFCN Other Lenses with This: https://amzn.to/2GDovMS I Used to Film on This: https://amzn.to/2IzzRq9 I Filmed on This As Well: https://amzn.to/2wAt8Ym Old Stabilizer: https://amzn.to/2KYaEUD Disclaimer: This description contains affiliate links above, which means I may receive a small referral commission if you purchase something through the links, but it'll in no way effect your purchase price, and it'll support the channel and help me to continue to make videos like this.

Ultimate Pai Town, Night Market, and Sights Guide
 
20:15
We are now finally in Pai. We travel up the long stretch of road that leads into the small town of Pai. I've created a simple map to point out the locations of all the sights on the way that we will visit in our upcoming Vlog 13. Once you're in Pai, there will be an obvious fork in the road. You won't have to worry and check the GPS constantly like we did. Make a right towards the gas station and you'll come to a small intersection which we later realized is the main intersection of the town. We checked Trip Advisor and the guesthouse with a relatively low price, close to all the action happened to be close, Payi Resort. It was 800 Baht (about $20) and we were traveling in high season. I had no complaints about this place for that price range, but there are plenty of other more scenic accommodations as well. After we checked in, we ventured out to the small town. All the action in the evening is isolated to a small area shaped like a T. In the morning, it's clear of vendors but in the evening, they shut off the street to traffic and it becomes a walking street full of life. We guide you through all the notable places so take a look if you want to save some time and money once you get to Pai, or you can just walk along and eat everything you find on the way like we did. We do however recommend you make a note of the cheapest motorcycle rental place as we didn't see any other places that matched those prices. If you do want a newer bike however, the ones toward the front of the walking street for 150 Baht were a good alternative as well. Word of advice by the way, don't eat the corn at the end of the street on the left side of the T. They plaster it with some butter like chemical and I had to spit it out. Aside from that, this Street market may be my favorite street market. This is a big claim as I've been to dozens of street markets in my 2 years of traveling, but the food is great, they use good ingredients, the souvenirs seem all handmade and original, nothing mass manufactured as you'll see in other places, and the prices are all written so you don't have to haggle. The written prices were all lower than what we were able to haggle the price down to in ChiangMai, so if you ever plan on visiting both of those cities, we recommend you hold off on your purchases in Chiang Mai before you come see what Pai has to offer. We will than guide you over to Pai River Corner Hotel and Restaurant. It's a super great find we came across at the end of the T Walking Street. Super chill atmosphere, sound of the river, and you can even stargaze which we can't show with our low quality camera gear. Prices of drinks and food were also all reasonably priced. After the river corner restaurant, we guide you to Pat's Nigh Life. When you make a right at the end of the T Street in the Night Market area, you'll come across the Bar area. There are bars for everyone along this street. When you make another left, we noticed some more quieter and local Live Thai music bars with mainly local Thais who are probably visiting from Bangkok. Anyways stay tuned for Vlog 13 where we will cover the sights of Pai. Hope you enjoyed this Vlog and please comment below and let me know what you think about it.

How to Get around Udon thani, Budget Flights, Car and Motorcycle Rental, Hotels
 
10:14
We are here to visit the amazing red lotus sea and we show you the best and cheapest places to rent transportation and lodging in the city of Udonthani Don Muang Airport Domestic Terminal 2, Air Asia Flight, Udonthani International Airport, the Kitlada Hotel 00:30 Budget Flight to Udonthani 03:06 Car Rental and Hotel Pickup 04:34 The Kitlada Hotel 07:08 Picking up the Rental Car Link to Vlog #06 Bangkok to Chiangmai by Not Air https://youtu.be/hHrOwKYv-nw Music by Ukiyo: Cold Feet, Home, Friday, No Limit http://soundcloud.com/ukiyoau/ http://www.facebook.com/ukiyoau/ Narration Transcript Ok so not much to say about the flight as I slept through it and don’t remember nor do I want to remember much of it. The Squaking noise did scare me a bit and also knowing Air Asia is notorious for planes crashing and disappearing over the sea didn’t help either. But I’ve personally met engineers and several flight attendants and they have assured me that all budget airlines do an equally bad job of maintenance so to not worry about which one is worst. Hey it’s only 10 bucks a flight, beggars can’t be choosers haha. Ok so if you’ve watched our channel you know we are big on renting scooters so why the car rental? Well the red lotus sea we plan on going to tomorrow is pretty far and being that we need to drive early in the morning when the roads are not lit, we were willing to shell out a bit more for a car. The cheapest place we found for a car rental was this Mali Thai place which was renting for 999 baht a day and they advertised free drop off and pickup for the car to our hotel. It was even cheaper than this lady who was renting her own private car for 1200 So while waiting we phoned around to some other car rental places just to make sure we got a good deal Ok so the Kitlada hotel. I think it was rated #2 on trip advisor but it was the price which I’ll discuss later that sold us on this place initially. Now I am not a hotel snob so I won’t nor am I qualified to go into the details for how to rate a hotel but Mayu works in a 5 star hotel and she didn’t complain so it’s clean and functional enough for most. What really made this place stand out is how helpful the taxi driver guy was in giving us with all the information we wanted in getting to the red lotus sea as well as arranging for a motorcycle rental for the remaining two days which cost us only about 7 dollars a day with free pickup and drop-off. He even offered to arrange a driver for our car for 500 baht which someone else might find useful Thanks again for checking out the vlog and now that the nitty gritty details over the logistics are finished I am super excited to share our amazing experience in Udonthani and to kick it off, we will show you the amazing red lotus sea so be sure to check back next week for more vlogs about living and traveling in Asia.

Epic Cheerleading in Thai High School Soccer Matches 28th Jaturamitr
 
09:35
00:31 going to the national stadium 01:12 the 28th jaturamitr tournament 02:01 thai high school cheerleading 03:51 1st half "the foul" 05:40 half time street food break 06:42 second half tensions National Stadium, Siam Paragon, Bangkok, Thailand Music by Ukiyo: Cold Feet, Fast Forward, No Limit http://soundcloud.com/ukiyoau/ http://www.facebook.com/ukiyoau/ (Narration Transcript) What’s up guys! Welcome back to livetravelasia. As stated I am going to checkout a high school soccer tournament amongst the 4 largest males only private schools in Bangkok. But first… You know, I honestly can’t even remember spending 1 month preparing for a school event so when my students told me they prepared 6 months for this, I had to go show some support. I wasn’t really expecting much but when I arrived, I have to say I was amazed at the scale of this event. So I was really curious to see how differently Thai students cheer for their school teams compared to American schools. The first thing I noticed were the male cheerleaders as that’s something that isn’t considered masculine in the states. So it was a bit surreal to see how they were considered cool here. But when I got over the initial culture shock of seeing male cheerleaders dressed up in black suits making arm movements I really can’t even put into words, I gotta say I really enjoyed how everyone seemed to be so into the cheers with synchronized chants and claps. Being from the states, it was pretty refreshing to see how cheering is done here in Thailand. It’s hard to explain but the cheerleading here just seemed a bit less pretentious and I really enjoyed the atmosphere. So this is what my students were practicing 6 months for. Each student is actually holding up banners that allow them to rearrange 9-12 different sections to create a part of a picture. There were a lot of pictures of the royal family, school mascots, and even the minions cheering for their school. I also thought it was clever how they put Messi in their school colors. They were also flashing banners for the event sponsors which were beverage companies and a sports appeal company. All in all it seemed each school had over 20 different pictures they were displaying throughout the event which was impressive to me. So after the anthem the match started and the students switched over to simpler one color banners that they were putting up in response to each others banners like this one saying BCC or Bangkok Christian College are Chickens, than you see BCC putting up a picture of a chicken rolling his eyes. I was far more interested in the banners than the soccer match until this happened. Did you see that! The captain of the purple team just pushed the opposing team’s doctor and all hell breaks lose, emotions are running high. I think everyone around me was yelling fight fight in Thai which seems pretty irresponsible but I am not gonna lie, a flying knee kick Thai style would make this match far more interesting… So what you didn’t catch because of the guy standing up in front of the camera is a hard tackle from the pink team against the purple team. Thats probably why the captain of Bangkok Christian pushed the opposing team doctor inferring that it wasn’t an accident and the pink team hard tackled his guy on purpose. So what tops this off is how the pink school puts up a banner that tells the purple team to calm down, with a banana which I think is saying no yellow card, and BCC putting up a WHAT? with a yellow faced protesting the the ref not carding the opposing team with at least a yellow card. So with the try again banner arrived half time and I ventured outside to get a breather from all the tension in the stadium. So when I ventured outside, I noticed just outside the stadium, there were rows and rows of street food vendors. Now being from the states where I am used to seeing absurd prices for food at sports matches. I was pleasantly surprised to see regular local prices with these vendors. So the first thing that caught my eye was this coconut ice-cream vendor. He was serving generous portions of coconut ice-cream for 20 Baht each which is about a little over half a dollar only. It was so good I went back for seconds and tried it on a bun as well. Lastly I purchased these grilled pork skewers for 10 baht each. These are definitely a staple of Thai street food. All in all I spent about 2 dollars which to me seemed amazingly cheap as that won’t even get you a can of coke in the states. So after my little ice-cream break I headed back to the Bangkok Christian College stands but my seat was taken and there wasn’t even enough room for me to stand. Eventually I had to walk over to a different section of the stand.

I would say Lhong 1919 epitomizes the fresh wave of hip and artsy attempts to gentrify Bangkok to suit the taste of it’s growing population of wealthier and younger residents and international visitors who still want a bit of that old town feeling without sacrificing luxury. Now there are a few ways to get to Lhong 1919 located south east across the Chaopraya river from the Grand Palace. However the recommended way to get there if you don’t have a scooter like we do would be to take the BTS to Saphan Taksin Station and take the free ferry Operated by Lhong 1919 every hour. This way you can avoid being stuck in traffic in this very busy area of Bangkok. Now what you can expect to find when you arrive here is a Chang Beer Garden with a great river front view and a handful of high end Thai restaurants. Rong Si seem to be the main restaurant here. It has a very pleasant interior and most entrees seemed to be priced anywhere from about 7-20 dollars. Not a completely unreasonable price for a special night out or if you’re from out of town and looking for a fine dining experience instead of just doing street food the whole time you’re here. They also have this more casual restaurant which we will come back to later in the vlog. Now the bulk of the warehouses however were dedicated storefronts for fancy high end clothing, accessory, and home decoration featuring local artisans. Although I couldn’t afford 90 percent of what was being sold here, it was interesting to browse the stores as most of the products were unique to this location. After you walk down the the row of werehouses, you’ll eventually end up at the main building located in the apex of the courtyard. It is a Chinese shrine that offers a pleasant contrast to the Thai buddhist temples. We found many people offering incents and praying throughout the whole day. There is also a big event hall that seems to be available for weddings and we were also told live performances take place here on the weekend but we visited on a slow weekday when none of these events were taking place. So after browsing the many stores and shops, we settled on the more casual dining option available here. I unfortunately don’t have much of what we talked about on this vlog but be sure to checkout Warrens video on Lhong 1919 on his channel linked below Thanks again for checking out our vlog and see you guys next week for more vlogs about living and traveling in Asia.

Sleeping Overnight at a JimJilBang (Korean Style Spa, Sauna, Onsen) in 4K (Sony A7Sii)

00:00 Scene 1 - Getting to Garden 5 JimJilBang 03:30 Scene 2 - JimJilBang Entrance 05:03 Scene 3 - The Bath House & JimJilBang Snacks 08:00 Scene 4 - The Facilities & Hot Rooms 09:31 Scene 5 - JimJilBang Dining Options 10:12 Scene 6 - Overnight at a JimJilBang Vlog 25, Day 8 Seoul Korea, Garden 5 Shopping Complex, The Spa at Garden 5, E-Mart in Garden 5 So today we continue off from our trip to Lotte World Tower and experience a Korean JimJilBang. This is a Korean style Sauna, Spa, Onsen, all lumped into one big commercialized bath house. I was curious to see what my Japanese Girlfriend would think of it as she's the typical Japanese that loves all things Onsen! Not sure if she would like the mass commercialized version of it. So why should you care what a JimJilBang is if you're not interested in getting naked and sweating with a bunch of people to detox yourself? A JimJilBang is a great way to cheaply spend a night for under 10 dollars if you happen to be on a budget, your air bnb fell through, or as I have experienced numerous times, got stuck out in the middle of Gangnam at 3am partying all night and you have an early appointment in Itaewon early afternoon and want to avoid the hassle and cost of a 40 dollar taxi ride back to your home only to sleep so you can spend another hour coming back into town. haha long run on sentence but use your imagination... but Jimjilbangs have gotten me out of pinch situations numerous times. I've also a great dating location. I found that I've had some great intimate conversations with dates in rooms where they can't use their cell phones because it would overheat haha. Anyways, this particular JimJilBang is located at Garden 5 which is on the east side of Seoul. I like this particular JimJilBang due to the size of the facility and cleanliness. We went on a holiday so there was a large crowd but it's usually less busy. You can also visit the Dragon Spa at YongSan if you just want to experience a bigger Spa with more amenities, but it's pricier and I personally thought it was showing signs of its age. If you ever have a chance, I highly recommend you visit Spa Land at Shinsaegae in Busan as that would be my all time favorite JimJilBang. In the states, the JimJilBangs located in Korean communities in the LA and OC areas are also very good and much cleaner with less crowds. I particularly like the one in Irvine. What you don't see in this video is the bathhouse section due to obvious restrictions on filming there. The facilities generally include a Hot and Dry Sauna, Medium Hot, Very Hot, and Cold pools, and showers. At the very minimum you are required to take a shower before you go into the main room to use the facilities and wear the provided clothing. Most JimJilBangs provide a toothbrush and toothpaste is in the BathHouse along with basic lotion / skin / hair dryer. However this particular Jim Jil Bang didn't provide toothbrushes so I recommend you bring your own as they were overcharging for them or visit the E-Mart located on the basement floor of the same building. Mayu also told me the women's bath house didn't have tooth paste, shampoo, and bodywash which was provided in the men's bath house. Bring your own or do what Mayu did which is wait for someone to leave their unused shampoo and soap, and use it. Haha. Anyways I hope you enjoyed the video.

Where to Party in Bangkok, Royal City Avenue Clubs, Route 66 & Onyx, Train Night Market 2018
 
11:53
The Train Night Market (Rot Fai Night Market) Ratchada, Esplanade Mall, MRT Thailand Cultural Center Station Route 66 Club, Onyx Club, RCA (Royal City Avenue) Bangkok, Thailand 00:19 Meeting up with the Cousin 01:54 The Train Night Market at Esplanade 03:22 The Pregame 04:26 Choosing between Onyx and Route 66 06:54 Route 66 Club RCA Bangkok 09:25 Party Mode! Narration Transcript Route 66. Where do I even start. Although there are no shortages of clubs in Bangkok this place holds a special place in my heart. Rogerio and I actually first met here almost 3 years ago, both fresh form Cali and single. We used to come here almost every week when this was the hottest club to meet up with the guys with hopes of running into some beautiful girl that we could exchange our line ID’s with. Since those time, Onyx renovated and opened up a massive EDM only club next door with the fancy lights, Thonglor has also opened a more western style club with open dance floors called Beam which is also more EDM focused as this seems to be what the younger crowds prefer these days. However Route 66 is still holding it’s own being a larger club that caters to dinosaurs like us who still like lyrics with their songs. Now it’s is a traditional Thai style club with small tables littered throughout the dance floor which I actually like because you can just come and two step your way through the whole thing and not feel pressured to have some kind of dance moves or act like you’re drunk or on drugs to feel like you fit in. Like to go all out on your dance? Another great thing about this club is that it also has a smaller room with an open dance floor that also does EDM if you aren’t into the hiphop and pop thats playing in the main room. Although it’s not as big and fancy nor does it feature the big name DJ’s like Onyx next door, you have an open dance floor that literally lights up and confuses the crap out of you so you can dance around tripping over people which is what I imagine being on drugs is like. But honestly I am not that into edm so I don’t really know but you have to admit these people look like they’re having fun so I sort of wish I was Now if you aren’t into ether of this, there is another major room that usually has live Thai musicians but for some reason they were singing a Korean song when I was recording. Thanks again guys for checking out our vlog. We will be back next week as usual with our New Udonthani Series where me and Mayu fly northeast to visit the amazing Red Lotus Sea and give you the lowdown on one of Thailand’s largest cities after Bangkok and Chiang Mai

Changdeokgung Palace Secret Garden Hanbok Rental Guide and Prices (Shot in Sony A7Sii 4K)
 
07:25
Vlog 21, Day 7 Korea, Anguk Station, Chongbeokgung Palace, Gwangmyung Areas Today is mainly about the Hanbok rental process with a bit of Palace thrown in there. Chongbokgung palace is the 2nd most popular palace destination in Seoul only preceded by the famous Gyungbokgung located a short distance apart from each other. It's known for its amazing secret garden area which can only be accessed by tour. We highly recommend you rent a Hanbok as you'll not only be able to take amazing pictures, but they will wave the general admissions for you as well. On this day, we unfortunately arrived a bit late to Anguk station which is the subway station situated exactly in the middle of the two palaces. Because of the lack of time, we decided to rent from the first Hanbok rental location we saw located inside the subway station. This ended up being our favorite even though we later ended up shopping around between 5-6 other places located in the Hanok (traditional korean house) area located in between the two palaces 2 days later when we visited Gyungbokgung palace. The reason we liked this place is that there were no additional charges. We later realized that the dozens of Hanbok (Korean Traditional Dress) shops scattered around the vicinity of the palaces all had similar Hanboks and the one we chose on the first day was considered a "premium" Hanbok because of the embroidery and it would cost about 5 dollars more in the other locations. The other location also charged us for the hair accessories and the underskirt which is essential to keeping your dress looking puffy. All in all we paid about 10 dollars more for the exact same rental 2 days later and wished we just stuck with the first place we rented from shown in this vlog. One thing I did like about the other locations we visited however is that they were in real shops where possibly you might just feel like it's a premium location... like paying 50 bucks for jeans at Nordstroms that you could get for 30 bucks at JC Penny if you know what I mean... and they offered lockers with individual keys whereas the lady in the subway station just threw our stuff in the bag and you basically had to just trust her to not steal anything which she didn't. They were actually very nice people. As for the palaces, we visited during a special Holiday week so we got 50% discount on the general admissions which Mayu didn't need because she was wearing a Hanbok and we decided to individually pay 5000 won for the secret garden entrance instead of the 10 dollars for the palace pass since our schedule was tight and we would only be able to visit 2 palaces anyways. My recommendation is that you purchase the pass however because the secret garden and changdeokgung alone is already 8 dollars unless you're wearing a Hanbok. Anyways, this was my first time shooting a full day with my new Sony A7Sii camera and being the newb I only packed one battery and ran out during the shoot, thus I am lacking on the palace footage however I promise you if you stick around, you'll see alot of breathtaking palace videos when we visit the main palace on Wednesday. Our next vlog, we will venture off into Insadong and Namsan Tower so stay tuned!

About our Channel: Just a regular Korean American guy who sold his house and belongings in California and decided to travel in Asia for the past 2 years. Now I want to share with you why living and traveling in Asia is the best decision of my life. I was born in Korea, and lived in Africa until I was 14 and immigrated to the US. I received my bachelors in Finance in California, served in the US ARMY for 9 years, and worked for a major American bank for over 12 years before I decided I've had enough of the 9-5. What was supposed to be a few months vacation in Asia turned into a year and now I live in Bangkok traveling all around SE Asia and teaching English part time on the weekends. I have a condo that is paid off, a girlfriend who loves me, and I can live like a king for pennies on the dollar.

Koh Chang Bang Bao Pier, What to Do, See, Eat on a Rainy Day
 
10:53
Vlog 39, Day 3 Koh Chang, Thailand - Nest Sense Resort Lonely Beach, Bang Bao Pier, Bang Bao Lighthouse, “Buddha View Restaurant, Bar, Guesthouse” 00:25 chilling out the rain 02:22 how to get to bang bao pier (monkeys) 03:19 bang bao pier 05:07 local life on the pier 06:53 bang bao lighthouse 07:21 buddha view restaruant and bar 10:00 bang bao pier's friendly cats Music by Ukiyo: Cool Down, Home, Cold Feet, No Limit http://soundcloud.com/ukiyoau/ http://www.facebook.com/ukiyoau/ (Narration Transcript) What’s up guys! Welcome back to livetravelasia. Today is our second day and the more chill part of our trip where we’ll spend some time relaxing out the rain at our resort and head over for a romantic dinner at bang bao pier. Btw, if you’re interested in a more adventurous guide to koh chang, checkout our previous vlog #38. So we were completely pooped from trek up the waterfall from the previous day and the rain provided us some excuse to lazy around in our room until our hunger gave us the excuse we needed to finally venture out again and make the most of time here. What can I say, isn’t it on everyone’s list of things do? Watching cute monkys play around and interacting with each other was a real treat but we dared not approach them too close as they seemed a bit aggressive and my rabies shot might not be up to date. So eventually we pulled ourselves away from that unexpected encounter with the monkeys and headed down to bang bao pier. The pier is located in the southern most point of Koh Chang and you’ll see a sign pointing right after about a 10 minute drive and you can miss the turn as there is a giant red and white light house sign where you need to turn right. If there is one thing that exceeds Mayu’s love for cats, it’s her love for waffles and this waffle joint at the entrance was a perfect place to get something in our stomach while we explore bang bang pier. One thing we did was to shop around for island hopping prices directly at the pier and what I noticed is that they tend to be about 5 dollars cheaper than what the travel agencies were charging and significantly cheaper than what the hotels were arranging them for. So it was interesting to see Bang Bao Pier in a new light not being rushed to the end of it to catch a boat ride. You obviously have the storefronts selling the generic types of souvenir items but coming here durning off season allowed us to catch a glimpse of life on the pier when it isn’t just trying to hustle tourists into spending money. With both residential and commercial buildings, What we found was a complete community of people living and also making their living on the pier. They even have a hospital right on the pier. It was an interesting experience strolling through this pier getting a truly inside look into the super chill lives of the locals and their pets who inhabit this pier. If you have an opportunity to come here during off season, come on a rainy day when the tourists aren’t here to go island hopping for a unique experience. So at the end of the pier you’ll come across a series of seafood restaurants. Having taken a good look at all the prices I can say that they were all very reasonably priced. Also don’t let the grimy entrances fool you as all the restaurants had great views once inside. However, one particular restaurant impressed us the most, Buddha View, well come back to this place later So in hindsight I felt lucky that the travel agency I booked through sent me on the Orange Boat as the other ones looked very packed and uncomfortable. However this is all relative, if you aren’t on a tight budget, just pay the extra bit to take the speedboats Anyways, we finally arrived at the end of this pier and enjoyed the picturesque view out into the ocean next to the light house. So after visiting the lighthouse, we headed straight back to the Buddha View restaurant we scouted out earlier for dinner. So what an amazing dinner! For some reason I don’t have footage of the actual seafood platter. What you saw was just the salad. But it’s probably because I was too busy eating it when it came out. We actually opted to share one portion between the two of us which came out to be about 20 dollars and it was actually more than enough but even at 40 dollars, it would be a meal worth every penny considering the variety and deliciousness of the platter. And you really can’t put a price on the ambiance of this place. The best seats are towards the front where you can enjoy your meal with your feet literally dangling over the ocean. Thanks again guys for checking out livetravelasia. We’ll return next week to wrap up our koh chang vlog and let me know in the comments if you enjoyed this video. Anyways, see you guys next week for more video from Asia.
