    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.

  2. In Fall 2010, Stefan, Clemens and I were traveling through SouthEast Asia for 2 months. We shipped Stefans Landrover to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and then drove up through Thailand, Laos and Cambodia. Of course, Clemens and I 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.

    Episode 3 Info:

    0:14 - Native village
    This actually happend in South Laos. We were looking for a place to sleep at the Mekong shore and we found a beautiful spot in a small village. However, it looked like we were in the backyard of someones house so we tried to ask the people in the village if it was okay for us to stay. We were lucky and met an old woman that spoke a little bit of French. She asked the villages chief for permission and then she invited us to have dinner at their house, with a lot of other people from the village. The food was pretty disgusting, but the experience was great.

    0:55 - Luang Prabang
    This city is probably one of the most beautiful places on earth. Period.

    01:41 - Phonsavan
    As we reached the highlands in the Phonsavan region we noticed a drastic change in landscape. It suddenly felt more like Tuscany than any place in Asia. We visited the famous Plain Of Jars there, however, the amazing landscape is the reason you should go!

    2:58 - Vang Vieng
    This place is heaven and hell at the same time. Located in a breathtaking mountain scenery, it's one of the most magic places we visited on our trip. But it's also heavily crowded with young tourists because of this "tubing" thing. Which is basically drinking as much as you can while spending some time on a tube every once in a while. Probably a once-in-a-lifetime thing, but we gotta admit, we had tons of fun. Guilty pleasures.

    3:45 - Vientiane
    Laos' capitol is rather a village than a bustling city. We only spent some time there, biking around and going in random small bars.

    4:14 - Don Khong
    This is the main island of Si Phan Don, the 4000 islands. The only one we could access by car. It was rather quiet there, however we joined some kids playing football on grass which was covered with cow shit. We didn't have a shower, so jumping into the Mekong river was only hope to get somewhat clean.

    4:30 - Khone Phapheng
    This is the biggest waterfall in SE Asia. Water-volume-wise. Clemens and Stefan climbed some wires over the river arms which were made for the local fishers and were only attached by one nail to a tree. Looking back, that was probably a bad idea.

    Episode 4 Info:
    The events are shuffled around in this episode. We first went to Phnom Penh and then visited Kampong Phulk and Angkor Wat, before continuing on to Thailand.

    0:01 - Kampong Phulk
    This is a village built on the shore of a huge lake surrounded by a magical mangrove area. People live together with their domestic animals in their houses surrounded by water. If they want to visit their neighbors for a drink, they need to use a boat.

    1:07 - On The Road
    Cambodia is a very poor country and finding someone that spoke English was very rare. However, almost everywhere we went, we instantly got surrounded by people. They didn't really talk to us, but loved watching everything we do.

    01:41 - Angkor
    The old temples of the Khmer empire. An exeptionally beautiful experience. But because of this, also incredibly popular among tourists from all over the world. We wanted to feature both sides in this clip.

    3:31 - Phnom Penh
    Cambodias capital isn't exactly a pretty city. Signs of the struggle this country has been going through (and still is) are found everywhere. Our experience there was rather wild, but very interesting.
