      This is what I'm thinking too. I'm a digital nomadfag who is always travelling, so why the fuck would I watch others travel?

        Bald is great and genuinely entertaining. The rest are meh, only watch the others to get a feel for a place i may want to visit.

        I travel for a living and still enjoy travel vlogs, probably because theyre one of the few types of people these days relatable to my lifestyle and they give good pointers/reccomendations and show places i may want to visit.

        Your travels must be pretty boring to have you spending time making threads about youtube vloggers

          Once your journey becomes long enough you will have times where you aren't following the action 24/7, especially if you're working.
          I like to check out some videos of places I am planning to visit, but most travel "personalities" are too cringe, with more time spent showing their faces than covering the destination.

      This.

      Other than that, I don’t watch any youtuber. Except Vagrant Holiday. Everything else is shite.

      I like watching them to get ideas of places and to learn cool things that I'd probably easily miss if I went there myself.
      Also . Not a poorfag but I do have to save money, so those videos scratch that travel itch until I'm able to go somewhere again.

    I can't watch travel videos with people in them, they are the most obnoxious insufferable gays in the world. I love watching walking tour videos of places I went to though (for nostalgia), and to get a glimpse of what the place I am going to is going to be like (Seoul is next up so i watch alot of seoul videos). I think every travel vlogger attention desperate gay should be beheaded

    Being a successful travel youtuber seems fairly easy. Don't have the personality of a brick, go to exotic locations, talk to the locals, churn out videos. That's what most of them seem to have in common.

      It's their job to make it seem easy.
      What you don't see is their off-screen work and whatever tasks they have to accomplish to keep going.

        >off-screen work
        If you've lived there for a couple of years, the "off-screen" work is basically nothing. Aside from the editing (which for vlog-type content is literally nothing besides a few jump cuts and adding some royalty free music), there's nothing you really have to do.

        Most of them, so they don't need to get too creative, try to recycle the same fucking concept over and over. Fucking Blondie does that by setting this retarded goal of eating at every fucking restaurant in China. Karl Rock by trying to find every scam ever done by Indians, and Broad by going at every expensive hotel he can get his hands on.

        If it actually were real work, they would be on Natgeo making these.

          Don't forget about negotiations with sponsors, patreons and potential partners you plan to get gibs from.
          That is if you earn enough from your channel.
          I assume that most travel vloggers either have a remote job or some other kind hustle.

            It can either be a lot of work or it can basically be nothing depending on your number of subs, same for the production value of your videos, i.e how much effort you put into them. I don't feel like B&B or Karl Rock are doing much besides filming shit and doing some quick editing on the fly. The fact that they're in a foreign country compensates for the fact that they can do less quality shit and still not be boring.

            For example, the "expat vloggers" like ADVChina, Abroad etc. were all ESL teachers at some point. In any case you would be an absolute dumbfuck to believe that youtube may be a reliable source of income until you've earned your second million at least.

              Nonsense, depending on your niche you can go full time with 100,000 subscribers already.

    >Indigo
    I watch him because he goes to countries that I'm curious about but would never want to actually visit.

    >Karl Rock
    Karl Rice was blacklisted by the Indian government for a year because he attends anti government protests, works illegally in the country on a tourist visa and films scams and corruption and blasts it on his channel for millions to see. He's finally allowed back but on very thin ice, notice how he only makes Paki videos now? Because he can't work legally in India.
    >Indigo
    Trust fund baby from new Zealand who's rich father funded his lifestyle
    >Bald
    PUA rapist with no real friends at all. See Jens and all his other buddies who are long gone
    >Sabbatical
    His Africa videos were fucking kino, especially where he takes his girlfriend into a brothel. Really good stuff, but there's a lot hidden. He speaks a tonne of languages. I like him the most currently out of your list.

    I'm a traveller anyway and have been since I turned 18. I don't watch other people travelling to live vicariously like almost everyone does.
    >Favourite travel YouTuber
    VAGRANT HOLIDAY
    why. Because I'm just making a video
    Notable exception to Ally Law as well but his videos get your heart beating so fast you might have a heart attack if you've had the clot shot

    >Why are people so obsessed with these people?
    People are not obsessed, people just have strong opinions on sighsee in general, and sighsee is the better place to express those opinions, especially if you've alreardy been in the places mentioned and do not share the same opinion as them.

    >What makes Karl Rock, Indigo, blondie, Bald, Sabbatical, etc interesting that you would watch them for hours on end?
    Not for hours on end, but i can at least explain I watch the ones that i do watch. I used to live in Taiwan for a few years, and these guys usually would tell you about nice spots to visit when in there. Custom tailored suits in Shenzhen, what cool places to visit in Tokyo, etc. If you ever have lived in a foreign country, you know how hard it is to find cool spots with great deals, and these people do it as a profession, so they might know more than even the most seasoned expat/immigrant. Or they might not, in which case fuck them. In any case, you can watch them just like you watch any documentary with someone visiting a city or a place.

    What I could conceed is that some youtubers have either concepts that become tired, or just switch in a radical fashion. Blondie is doing spineless "tasting X food" shit when she's fluent in Chinese and could litterally do so much more (and i'm not talking about politics), the Barretts just can't choose between being a half decent travel channel for younger folks and being complete CCP shills from one video to another, vice versa for SerpentZA who can go from doing some of the more atmospheric and kino shit in the game to weird, boomer-tier takes on the Chinese people.

    >Who is your favorite youtuber and why?
    Abroad in Japan, by default. Chris has the best production value over all these fucking retards, knows more often than not what he's talking about, is able to discuss the news without going full blown partisan to a certain side, and is actually a channel i'd recommend to someone planning to live there.

    I sometimes find myself thinking that I should give this a shot and try to become a travel youtuber myself. What would be the requirements in terms of skills and content? And how do you make it to the big leagues, is it all about personality?

      First, equipment. Everyone started with a shitty recorder and mic, but that was 10 years ago. So you have to have good equipment such as a good lav mic, and a high def camera so you can capture nice shots. Don't bother with anything else until you have said equipment.
      Meanwhile, just get some experience. Visit places. Maybe your first vlogs should be about places you've already visited, which will up your confidence, knowledge, and will actually help when it comes to talking, as ranting will litterally be your bread and butter. If you're planning to do some expat vlogging like abroad in Japan instead of just traveling like B&B, stay in the place a bit, collect the experience of more seasoned immigrants/expat/locals.
      Practice talking about a certain subjects. Could be the history of a place you're visiting, or a classic expat subject such as "things i wish I knew before living in X". Record yourself, and see if you're not saying some outlandish shit without even being aware. Also, practice your narrative intonation. Everyone who's half good at what they're doing have one (Chris, Winston, even Blondie).

      Me too. I already travel for work. May as well vlog about it. I'm just curious about what equipment I need? Would my Xiaomi Note 10 work (doubtful)? What about a lens and a mic?

      >and a high def camera
      Like an iphone 13? Most vloggers just vlog with their phone.
