    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.

    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.
