    This is the first out of five Episodes about a trip to SouthEast Asia in Fall 2010. Stefan, Clemens and I were travelling in a Landrover through Malaysia, Thailand, Laos and Cambodia for 2 months. Of course, we brought our little DSLRs to capture every great moment of this memorable journey.

    Episode 1 Info:
    0:43 - Kuala Lumpur
    The city is an interesting clash of cultures, with the Muslim people, the Chinese traders, colonial buildings and a huge modern western influence. If you get a chance to go there, don't miss to eat and drink at Bukit Bintang (2:11), our most favorite place in the city.

    2:48 - Port Klang
    After 5 days waiting and organizing the handling at the port, we could pick up our Landrover at the harbor. We just bought some supplies before heading North the same day (check out the map below)

    4:02 - Cameron Highlands
    Already on the next day of driving, we realized that something was wrong with one of the bearings. We had extra parts for the car, however, we couldn't change it on our own. But because of the old colonial days, a majority of those people here in the mountains were driving Landrovers. Those cars were basically everywhere so it didn't take long to find some people that were able to help us. Those friendly locals took us to their house where they had some old-school tools and fixed the bearing. All they wanted in return is to drink some beer with us at a campfire at their house. Good people!

    5:18 - Offroad
    Our Landrover-friends told us about some "nice little offroad" the next day. And this turned out to be a road that hasn't been used for years. We needed to get dead trees out the way and watch for ditches really carefully. It took us the whole day to get through and in the end, when it got dark we actually managed to slip into a ditch with one wheel. Our trip was almost over already at that time, it was a matter of inches for the car to fall down. I couldn't film this as I was pretty shocked and, of course, we needed work and pull out the car with the winch. But we were lucky enough to get it out and the trip continued.

    6:02 - Road North
    After the Highlands, we quickly drove all the way North to Thailand, with a little stop-over at Georgetown.

    This Episode features impressions from 2 weeks Thailand during the rain season. We were basically just driving almost every day to get North as fast as possible.

    Episode 2 Info:

    0:01 - Pai
    Pai is actually in Northern Thailand so we got there later than the edit would suggest. However, I wanted to put it into the beginning as it's a fun contrast to the quiet shots afterwards. It is somewhat of a Hippie-Mecca with lots of alternative tourists but also has this festival which seemed very authentic to us.

    1:34 - Bangkok (Part 1)
    We visited Bangkok twice on our trip. So there's a lot more to come in Episode 5. This time, it's only a handful of impressions from the rainy days.

    2:35 - North Thailand (general)
    After Bangkok is was raining a week straight. We were going into the mountains in the north-western Region driving on mud roads and fighting the water inside the car as it was leaking through on many spots. Camping is no fun, when it's pouring.

    2:48 - Doi Inthanon
    Doi Inthanon is the highest mountain in Thailand with 2565 Meters. But the peak is still covered with high trees so you don't really get any spectacular view. However, the fog within the forest up there made a great scenery.

    3:00 - Refugee Kids
    We accidentally drove in this area where there was a refugee camp streching over many kilometers at the Myanmar boarder. They wouldn't let us in but we could see many kids playing outside on the streets. Later we found a Myanmar refugee which told us alot about the region and why there are all there.

    3:48 - Chiang Mai
    This was one of the most fun cities we visited with tons of young native people studying there so we had some great nights going out. Luckily, we didn't film any of it.
    After Chiang Mai we drove straight to Chiang Khong all the way North East at the Laos boarder to cross it the next morning.
