  1. This motor bike tour is going by fast almost back to Chiang Mai already. How soon can we expect a โ€œwhatโ€™s up ricersโ€ video?

  2. Chad your an amazing human being!! Your heart is huge and taking time out for the dog was fucking awesome ๐Ÿค˜ Cheers brother ๐Ÿบ๐Ÿบ May God continue to bless your journey ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ˜‡๐Ÿ™ŒโœŠ

  3. In Australia, Far North Queensland has Very similar country side. They say it’s where the Rainforest meets the Reef. Cheak it out, Cairns, Mossman, Cooktown.

  4. Your having way good of a time..๐Ÿคฃ I actually enjoy all the villages away from tourist as well. Crashed many parties over the year. Missing Thailand ๐Ÿ‘ฃ

  5. Outstanding as always. I look forward to the day when you are hosting your own television travel show and I can say…I knew you when. Kick ass job!

  6. I donโ€™t usually subscribe to any channel, but your content hits the funny bone just right. (Bonus: u hit a Hmong village! My people) How about Doi Inthana, highest peak in Thailand? More of my people there too I hear. Plus thereโ€™s gotta be some badA** roads to get there ๐Ÿ™‚ **Cheers**

  7. Well Mr Chad, I must say for a farang ,curve killing beast, you show a lot of sensitivity to the world around you. Then you slay me with “what’s the point of a strip club….”. You have fast become my favorite Youtube spot to go. PLEASE do not change. You are perfect the way you are. I’m heading to Paypal to buy you a beer. Have a good, safe trip back home.

  8. I spent 4 months working with Karen villagers, not far from the Hmong village you went to. Your comments about the kids were bang on – they are the happiest, most balanced kids youโ€™ll find. Makes you wonder if weโ€™ve really got it right in the West.

  9. Chad 14:07 yes sir. 16:07 good laugh! Need less to say I don’t think anybody is watching your channel for the waterfalls (or the bar girls/lady boys). Love the kids running out to greet you. I agree that those kids may be way better off than US kids with all the electronics and stress.

  10. CB your Video freezes up at 4:37 to 4:42

    They bamboo bridge looks awesome. as well as those curves on that road. That car was a dare devil crossing the line.

    Kids and adults in countries like Thailand are thankful and happy for what they have and their lifestyle. In USA to many people take there stuff and lifestyle for granted always wanting more. From traveling I have noticed people with less are truly happier than someone with more.

  11. I was so happy to see you bring food back to that dog. It was starving. I think its skittish because it might be abused . Stones thrown at it. Just wary of humans. Another interesting and colorful video. Love it

  12. Waterfalls ya canโ€™t swim, strippers ya canโ€™t ……., and dogs ya canโ€™t feed at least lunch looked good and the beer looked cold๐Ÿ‘

  13. When you get back to Chiang Mai, maybe you can check out The Giant, which is like a cafe built on this huge tree. A little difficult to find, probably better signs now than when I was there, but it’s a cool spot, think you’d like it! Seem like your type of adventure ๐Ÿ™‚

  14. Chadbee you killed it today bro!I been to places like that it really makes you be grateful to see kids that are happy just for being a life,they enjoy the little things we take for granted, no just kids pretty much every person I had come across from places like that…

  15. What a fascinating and insightful tour. Loved the last one but this one is epic. Love the views, that hill top wrong turn lookout, could build a home there WOW. Thanks Chad, keep up the great work. Maybe even include some more food from these wonderful places.

  16. I have to say to many people criticise you on ur comments but for me your videos are not perfect but i enjoy watching them. People should shut up and just enjoy.

  17. I stayed at that same hotel in Mae Sariang a few years ago when I first rode the Mae Hong Son Loop. They had just finished putting in that pool. Great little hotel!

  18. Enjoy almost all of your videos; however, I’ve noticed you always stop for fuel in the middle of nowhere. How about filling up a gallon of fuel & carry with you thru the jungle tour like you always do? Just saying, thank you for taking me around with you around Thailand….

  19. Awesome video,dude! “….when you can’t get in it!”~ i get it dude! Hahahahaaa… ๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

  20. Thanks so much mate Iโ€™m living Thailand through yr videos. The Aussie government wonโ€™t let us travel itโ€™s so fucked we canโ€™t make our own choices

  21. Hey man what you said 13:23 Really hit me hard, i am from a village of this kind also the quality of being happy is different, yes i can buy the latest stuff now do more crazy shits but back those days in the 90’s i feel like im more alive than of today.

  22. I commented to soon before the video ended…Amazing you took the time and try helping that ๐Ÿ• some people won’t take 5 minutes to help a animal or even just be nice,just the fact you took action it says a lot about you brother, some people probably will say you did it for the views but those of us that had been here watching for awhile, we know how much you care for animals or they can ask GIGI lol….be save out there brother….National Geography who?…Got nothing on Chadbee

  23. 1. Those kids at the village are living the real childhood, away from all the gadgets and apps. The happiness index in people living in rural areas is much more higher than compared to the kids raised in urban areas with all the amenities.
    2. I don’t know why it happens in general when we go the extra mile for someone like you did the dog (Highly appreciated) is not appropriciated by the concerned person.
    3. Life atMictowave village touched me too, you are right when we cuss our lives for the small bits we should’nt forget how lucky we are to live in the comfort we have.
    4. You keep on saying Chad, that you are not a religious person but your small acts of kindness make you more religious compared tonthe people who show off to be religious.

    I loved this series and can’t wait to do the same route in December, I am loving the longer version of tge vlogs. Keep them coming.
    Thanks Chad I wish you all the best bro.

  24. You’re a good person for helping that puppy (all dogs are puppies if you give them a chance to be one). You did get a small tail wag at one time so you made an impression. Cheers and good luck to you!

  25. By The Sea guesthouse in Mae Sariang is my go to spot Chad. I could even see my Mad Monkey sticker on the board over your right shoulder. Sweet! I know that dog. Definitely seen better days. But without tourists no free lunch so you did a great kindness for it. King Rama IX would have approved. Too many people toss stones at it so when you chucked the food at it it thought you were encouraging it to leave. Next time just drop the food a few feet in front of you and it will come. Good karma buddy.

  26. Youโ€™re a good man Chad
    My wife is a vet and sheโ€™ll bring home dogs now and then that look emaciated like that dog
    Sometimes we can save them if theyโ€™re not too sick
    BTY excellent video ๐Ÿ‘

  27. This is one of my favorite video you have produced. Seeing those children and your attempt to communicate is priceless. I was surprised that Hmong girl spoke a little English. Was she from the Microwave village? Do more people interacting in your videos.

  28. I agree 100% Chad. What is the point looking at, if you can’t touch. Great joke.
    Also another awesome video.
    Keep em coming mate.
    Stay safe and keep it on 2 wheels.

  29. Those are prayers and wishes on those pieces of wood and not customary to touch them Chad, it’s the same practice in Japan, please don’t touch haha.

  30. Suggesting a good free navigation app: Here WeGo maps. Originally developed by Nokia and it works great in Asia. Good thing in it is that you can download maps and use it offline if you want to save data or if you’re out of range. I’ve used it in Thailand and Philippines while driving.

  31. You have a real talent for making engaging videos, Chad. I especially love the empathy you have for street dogs, youโ€™re a good man. I just wish your empathy would extend to other animals as well, like those pigs heading for slaughter in those cramped cages a few videos back. Keep up the good work.

  32. Itโ€™s videos like this is the reason I love you and your videos brother. This kind of content inspires me to explore more in Thailand when I get back. Thank you Chad

  33. I love ur ridings through those roads and jungles, it looks like I am there on the mororbike and enjoying the nature, u r a great hell rider. ur fan from Iran โค๏ธโค๏ธ

  34. Can’t help but enjoy the relaxed manner, the great videography and scenic rides. Found this chanel about 2 months ago and need my daily fix. Keep them coming

  35. People that living in the village is lucky. The government gave a land for them to used for free. Most of their kid will get collect degree in the city and stay in the city. But the elderly like to stay in the village because it cheap and easy live. Believe me if you tell them to move to Bkk to live the the condo they will reject.

  36. I get a kick out of seeing you get fuel in liquor bottles, but don’t want to see another video of you out of fuel either.

    I have ate enough hotpockets I have no desire to buy any for rest of my life, my younger days when I couldnt afford to eat good,ate way too many, my wife knows not to buy any for me, but there is usually a pack in freezer for HER!, lol. while for a laugh, my wife doesnt like bologna as thats what parents had to do to feed her growing up. I dont mind bologna though. lol.

    google maps sucks where I live you will lose service, then it will try to reroute you different ways after you passed roads you needed to turn, because you didnt have signal, but once you get out of these mountains, it is USUALLY pretty decent. by the way, the view without village looks like a end of day sunset with a cold beer view?

    great on points of Microwave village, you have no idea how similar I am, I actually try to distance myself from people that are not humble, but I have never seen that level of poverty, but my parents had friends that lived very similar to that into the late 1970’s but not to this magnitude.

    waterfall versus strip club, LOL!!!!!!!!!!! love it. when I was playin’ I refused to go anywhere I had to pay to see, touch, too much free out there, but… then sometimes you meet “THE 1” and playing days are over. 16 years. never believed I would have settled down with anyone, until it happened.

    I love seeing your caring heart towards animals! even when they run away. lol. you tried.

  37. Epic journey my friend! So enjoying this. Experiences like the Microwave Village are soul changing aren’t they? By the way do you know why it’s called Microwave?
    Safe travels!

  38. The script on the “bridge gate” and the temple indicate they are a tribal group more associated with Myanmar. Also, maybe I missed it, but did you note why they are the “microwave village”? Maybe I’m wrong, but it might be right over your right shoulder at 12:24.

  39. Love the videos. Wish there was a way to deaden the wind noise when zooming along on the motorbike. Any decent Bluetooth Lav mics in Thailand? might be a long shot, but might be worth a try to get with a furry muff that can be put up in the helmet? Anyhow, great videos Travel Safe!

  40. This video has so many feels, brother. I’ve said other videos are my favorite, but now I think this one is. These are things you do not see in tour books. I look forward to these situations! I carry hard candy with me for 100% exactly that situation with the kids… and their parents! (I learned the funny way not to carry chocolate (it melts!)). And what a good heart with the doggo as well. Love this vid – channel!!!

  41. 100% agree with you that more foreigners need to experience these “3rd” world villages, as an Australian it was a culture Shock to see when visiting these areas years ago but it has made me very humble.

    The fact they find so much joy in the basics of life really says a lot about the tic toc generation

  42. A+++ Effort for trying with doggo buddy! You are one decent human being in world full of many asshats!! PS, I’m sure I speak for a lot us but the longer vids are fantastic!

  43. I’m Hmong!!!!!!!! So exciting you spent the day with the village tribe people. โค

    Thanks for feeding the dog. Thats what my husband and I did also when we were in Koh Samui. ๐Ÿ˜

  44. Mae sariang rocks man. Thats a good stretc5h of T-landia, along the salween river. Maybe even the best if your into places like microwave village. You are definitely right about remembering it years later. Sometimes poverty is a state of mind. Happy is happy no matter what materials your house is made of.

  45. Chad, have you ever heard of the Ewan McGregor’s mini-series ‘The Long Way Around’? During one episode, he’s passing through tiny villages in Mongolia. If viewed through Western eyes and with Western standards, the Mongolians in the village appeared to be in total poverty. Like way less than even what you saw in the Hmong village. However, he sort of envies them because they’re content with their lifestyle because they have shelter, food to eat, and are able to provide what they consider necessary with no other complications.

    So yeah, the Hmong seem happy and content because they’re living their lives with no one messing with them.

  46. Chad I think maybe this vlog is one of your best. You are becoming a true documentary producer maker.

    You pulled my trigger with the stripper joke. Go luck to you deserve everything this world can give.

  47. These long vlogs are much more interesting and enjoyable to watch. Lots of interesting point of view and the stops you made makes it more interesting to watch. Keep it up!

  48. Hi Chad, awesome video! As you would say, โ€œhands downโ€œ best vlogger in Thailand. Great philosophy in the village, great compassion to the โ€œstreet doggyโ€, wonderful scenery and adventure. Your a natural at vlogging, mate! Saw your update last night (thanks) and was so happy when I saw your latest video in the morning! I was hold everything, itโ€™s Chad time! Once again, wonderful video, thanks for all your hard work and keep safe.๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

  49. you should do some uploads without anything having to do with the motorcycle/tour… just some information and solid camera shots, etc.. (im the guy who complains about the POV riding cam lol and I won’t stop until you see the success from what I’m trying to say.. lol, will delete soon, cheers)

  50. That was a really lovely Bamboo bridge and shrine at the start of this video
    And awww the poor dogo ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ•

    (*The Bamboo prayer/wish tags are like Ema in Japan which are super common at all the major shrines
    Basically you write your wish down, hang it within a special or sacred place and hope for it to be answered or assisted by the forces at work in the area (usually Kami or different Buddhist saints)
    There’s a communal aspect to them too since others in the community can read the wishes)

  51. good stuff again. i can’t wait to use that stripper/waterfall line on a ”sensitive’ person. “Don’t go chasing waterfalls…” LOL. hope this helps the algorithm.

  52. 5:00 – Well i work 6 days a week 8 hours a day – MAster degree – Junior web developer – IT guy – And i get paid 100 $ PER MONTH!!!! Welcome to IRAN.

  53. Good point about โ€œHello!โ€ After 18 years here I have only recently discovered that the same is true with โ€œThank youโ€ โ€”> โ€œThank you, khrapโ€ to be polite ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ And I can speak Thai relatively fluently ๐Ÿ˜‰

  54. Great content man. I lived in SEA for 2 years before the situation. Traveled all over SEA. I always talk about the perspective of true poverty and how happy the people are. Thanks for sharing man.

  55. But but but…all those microwave antennas make a โ€œmicrowave villageโ€. Iโ€™m not a fan of strip clubs as well. Never needed to be. Hero status looking after soi dogs.

  56. As per your stripper joke, in Vegas you can do BOTH things with strippers. And, I think you found out why that dog was starving, he runs away from food.

  57. I believe that bamboo is for prayers. In the Catholic church you light candles in other churches or temples you light incense. Some churches you leave money.

  58. You hit the nail on the head its simple have an attitude of gratitude…you don need a hole lot of crap to make you happy ! i also reflect on my days on the Chao Phraya river seeing some girls at work and thigh high water putting poles in for a home ! i promised myself i would not complain about little things in my life after seeing there beautiful smiles a sweet demeanor while working in a harsh weather and wished i could share it with others to show how a simple life still could bring happiness.. thank you for your reminder to myself with your vlog L.A Rob…

  59. Bro, your comments on that village werenโ€™t corny AT ALL!!! Sounded like genuine perspective and insight to me!?!?๐Ÿ’๐Ÿปโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ™

  60. You said whatโ€™s the point to look at it when you canโ€™t get in it! Well sometime your eyes need candy!so itโ€™s the candy for your eyes!

  61. Stayed at the same hotel. Nice people. Not much to do there but the lake in one of the neighbouring villages is cool. Also there are cool places to eat on the River.

  62. Your videos are extremely informative man, thanks for the upload dude . Next time I go to thailand Ima start riding a scooter, going to get a 150cc pcx to practice with at home first lol

  63. That’s right feel sorry for the American and British kids that have everything and still arsole kids. spoilt, and now selling crack and heroin on the street corners , and wearing a 150 pounds Nike trainers and still not happy.
    What went wrong.
    Them kids are happy because they are free
    Because they don’t know what it is to want.

  64. I had the same attitude you had, once seeing the students in a thai country village like this. When you see it for yourself in person it does effect you! As an American when u see how happy they are with having so little it puts life into perspective. Especially with whats going on here in America, if you could experience something like this you might develop a better outlook of life and what you should value. Great vid and great series dude.๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ™

  65. I love thai people like you said you got to visit these small places to view it for yourself it does stay with you forever I can’t wait to get back this is what I planned to do Thailand has some beautiful places I can’t understand why people go to the other side of the world to sit in a bar all there holidays stay safe Chad love the videos

  66. Hi Chad.
    In past 6 days I’ve went through all of your videos, Moto road trips at least 3 times each. Just want to say thank you for a great experience and very beautiful week. Really appreciate it.
    Stay safe and keep up the great work! Wish you all the best ๐Ÿ‘

  67. Hey Chad, those are my Hmong people. I left the country to the US since I was very little. Itโ€™s nice to see this. Thanks for sharing and keep inspiring us all.

  68. Great vlog as ever Chad. I use Google maps with one earphone in my ear so I can hear the directions. Saves stopping and checking. Painfully slim dog ๐Ÿ• I hope she came up and found the goodies. Good karma

  69. When i was invited to isaan the First time, i imagined to see a place like this village. Never had i expected the huge city of Nakhon Ratchasima a.k.a. Korat. You were surprised of a gas station. Lol. Thailand ๐Ÿ™

  70. Nice vlog Chad but tinged with sadness when you came across that dog. There must be many out there suffering or even worse. Glad you tried to help ๐Ÿ™

  71. I remember meeting the woman that ran the Phuket hospital after the tsunami that devistated the region. She told me stories of her organizing the army and police giving them body tags and telling them what to write and do. She was excitied to meet us and would have spent more time except the hospital rang her every 5 minutes. That my friend is the definition of a hero.

  72. Its true what you say Chad, they are happy with nothing, they would not know what an iphone or playstation is, I wish society in general was more like that, great vlog again, cheers

  73. Sorry Chad, you obviously got a heart, would you not throw a few baht their way, I saw the poor man carrying the child on his back, even 1000baht would make a big difference for him and his family

  74. I cannot believe how close I came to never watching your channel ever again. Out of ALL your videos, somehow, I watched one that really didn’t do you justice. After binge watching your channel over the months( and thoroughly enjoying them ALL) How could I have been so unfortunate? (LOL) The act of kindness towards the starving canine, going an hour out of your way to feed him, well, I think you are FABULOUS! No wonder your channel is so successful. As a MOM, I know your MOM is so proud of you!! Ok, I’m through gushing…Have a great weekend. Don’t ever judge a channel from just ONE video. Always watch at least two.

  75. This is why I love Thailand so much! The very first time I visited some of Thailand’s rural areas, I quickly realized how much happier I was there than back home in the U.S with all those unnecessary materialistic things I seemed to accumulate over the years.
    Beautiful country, beautiful culture, and beautiful people.

  76. Great video
    Yorkshireman stuck in England jealous
    Can’t wait to get back to Thailand
    Good video motorbike village life scenery touring people
    And a fellow dog lover
    Stay safe

  77. Chad, the kids in the Hmong village, and most mountain people , certainly prefer and understand HELLO. “Sawatdee ” ( เธชเธงเธฑเธชเธ”เธต ) is the Thai language that they have to learn in school to be able to work later in the city. They have they own language. And, at 10m 09s at the view point and at 12m 25s in the village we can see the microwaves towers.

  78. Oh!! Chad. You are trying to kill that dog. Dogs should not eat cakes,chocolate, sugar. Or fruits of grapes, plums Because it will make that dog Low blood sugar, kidney failure, liver malfunction Organ malfunctions Or may be fatal to a heart attack Please be careful of what you will give the dog to eat.

  79. im hmong. the stitching she is doing is literally pixel by pixel, and each pixel takes 2 crosses. its like two strokes to make an X.
    girl in the blue at 11:53 said “lets go to sleep” XD
    elderly man at 14:00 said “dont go look” (literally). he meant it respectfully because of the child. its more like “c’mon, no no, lets go”

  80. You know, my opinion of you has zero impact on your life in any way, shape or form and I realize this given that I just want to say my opinion of you has grown substantially with this series and with this video in particular. You have a very temperate side to you, in Thai it is called Jai dee…. and with that you are chok dee, Chad.
    This village you are in, in the video is almost mirrored in the village I live in, Khua Bua may be one or two notches up the success ladder (but it is certainly below poverty lines in the USA) and the people are just happy as can be. Makes my time here more relaxed and enjoyable.
    This is a powerful vid man, proud to have found your channel and watched it long enough to see this side of you.
    Peace out bro!

  81. Very nice Chad.
    Those kids were really nice man.
    I also saw that when I was on Koh Panyee Village, they were sleeping on the floor in a scool room.
    Thumbs up ๐Ÿ‘ for the feeding the dog ๐Ÿ•.

  82. That what you sayd at 14:04 i agree 100% with you, some places in thailand are really eye opening and makes you look your life in other perspective.

  83. 16:05:

    “I’m not a fan of waterfalls you can’t swim in, for the same reasons I am not a fan of strip clubs. What’s the point looking at it if you can’t get in it?”

    I’m triggered… Laughing my balls off! ๐Ÿคฃ
    One of the best comments ever, not only on this channel!

    Keep it up and stay safe buddy!
    Have a great weekend!

  84. Really good video. Not hard to see how you got so many subscribers. Not a part of Thailand I have seen before. Hard for me to get past Bangkok and Pattaya. I should really see the real Thailand in the future.

  85. Yo Dude, we love Thailand and cannot wait until we are able to travel again. I have watched many of your videos and you do well, enjoy them a lot. Shit I would like to have a go at gjose roads on my Harley Street Bob. Keep safe.

  86. My wife went old school on my kids the other day cause they are obsessed with there games an shit. She took my sons switch and busted that bitch like three times on the table. I mean I even felt a little bad for him haha. but shit I suck at video games

  87. Love these longer videos. Stay safe brother and don’t let the naysayers get to you, they’re just jealous because they live in mom and dad basement.

  88. Your new friend tan wow
    She is a hottie ๐Ÿ˜š๐Ÿ˜one nice lunch
    That Nissan was really racing you
    The dog will find it
    Nice hotel
    ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ™

  89. Awesome, Man, so humbling those villages, keep drumming in the wages these people earn,
    Kinda puts it all into perspective.
    Loved it, big time!
    Thanks Chad.
    PS first time we went to LoS our fantastic guide โ€œBeeโ€ in Chiang Mai,
    Explained many things you see in the temples, markets etc, that you would take years to find out
    For yourselves.
    Really worth it.

  90. 5:00 Do they even make 10,000B a month? I thought a lot with their own land were down nearer 6,000. The construction workers in the city can be on 300 a day.

  91. Google Maps should pay you! And are those all your illegitimate children from your travels LOL much love awesome vids as usual๐Ÿพ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿพ

  92. Interesting and very educational vlog bro!!! I enjoyed seeing the little village you came across!! I love seeing villages that you hang out for a little while cause if it wasn’t for you I’m sure alot of us would never see or ever even hear about it!!

  93. 13:12 truth teller Chad. Indeed. I feel sorry for the broken , sjw, soy infested scummy kids in US and Europe. All about materialism and social media. People are happy in Thailand with less.

    I pee on our people.

    Chad. You have best channel and I like that after so much fame, you stay humble and respect the culture and people. Kudos for that.

    Stay safe brother.

  94. Are you hearing anything about the end of cash over there and possibly going to a digital form of currency?
    I know you arenโ€™t about the topic on this channel but here in the United States the church has been pushing the idea of a Mark Of The Beast System which will be eventually Forced with alternative being Death.

  95. Awesome once again Chad.
    We all need some humility now and then.
    Good on ya son for sharing.
    Amazing views, great chicanes for racing and what’s the point if you can’t get in. lol

  96. I wish that you could wander until the end of times, on the Thai roads. But every good thing must end one day 555 ๐Ÿ˜‰ Looking forward for you next Mae Hong Son t-shirt

  97. Dude , awesome effort at trying to feed that poor dog ! Been there done that many a times while living & working throughout Thailand
    Over the years ….since 1990 to present.

  98. Things that made me laugh out loud:
    “I need all the luck I can get”
    “It’s what you put your HotPockets in. God man, we don’t have HotPockets here. I haven’t had a HotPocket in I can’t tell you how long…”
    “How else did you think this video was going to end?”
    “I made it to Mae Sarong… Mae Sareeeng…. I made to my destination.”

    Best Channel on YouTube. thanks for feeding the soi dogs dude.

  99. Wow Chad, awesome video mate. Thatโ€™s so good of you to help the dog. I have no doubt he found the food you left, they can smell it from a mile away!

  100. The Tfr pickup at 4:20 best car ever built. Only takes 5 liters of diesel for 100 km and the engine lasts 1,000,000 km. Keep in mind they are from 1998!

  101. I remember back in 73 when we were pulling out of Nam Phong and had to do a convoy south to Sattaheep (sp?) driving through the mountains we stopped for lunch, huge bag of fried rice and large Coke was like .60 cents. Memories last a lifetime.

  102. Chad Thailandโ€™s gasoline is pure premium with real octane. There isnโ€™t any America thinned out soybean ethanol. Great video i watch you ever morning 8 AM EST Connecticut before my zoom conference call. Great call Chad those kids are pure happiness and so excited to learn you are correct America and big cities around the world get ruined with narcissism.

  103. Chad,
    I disagree that those kids and people live in what you said is severe poverty. Having been to Myanmar and the Philippines, there are areas there of severe poverty (sewage stagnated water, garbage strewn everywhere, ramshackled homes, etc.)….The people in that Thai village are just farmers mostly and that’s rural life…everyone is well dressed, healthy and happy.

  104. Unfortunately the Western kids are too much of a whiny, entitled crybaby to acknowledge just how privileged they really are, they’re directionless in life, with a void of purpose in them, they need something to fight against, so they made up one and started complaining about social issues instead, without realizing just how good they’ve got it over there. Thus, they can become political tools very easily, especially with the educational system in the West being a literal Marxist indoctrination camp. The Western nations’ future looks grimm.

  105. 1:41 the hanging bamboo things are most likely the peoples names who visited the temple . Its for good luck – you should put a CBMedia sticker on one and left it

  106. Nice what a cool little village and yes I agree with you seeing the way some people live and how they are so happy yet live relatively simple lives is eye opening and a experience not to miss if you get the chance

  107. I have been watching you videos for the past week and enjoying them very much. The name “Chad” kept on popping from time to time and I was asking myself “who is this Chad” (LOL) finally to realise I didn’t actually know your name (Duh!) and eventually getting (one single IQ. That’s me) it’s yours. What’s the B stands for?

  108. I wish you had an instagram account with just the amazing views that you capture from hill tops, beaches and such. While I appreciate your appetite for car engines and automobiles in general, it would have been cool to have the views of Thailand as well. I guess you are too busy though.

  109. Another great video. but I still do not understand why they call it the microwave village? Is it because of the huge (microwave) antenas on the next hilltop? Personally I do not use microwaves. Kills everything that goes into it. But to each his own.

  110. I’m conflicted Chad. The comment about materialism in the western world, versus the happiness of the kids in the Microwave Village, resonated strongly with me. So did ‘…look at that Tomato’.

  111. Please make a video about sport motorbikes in Thailand, i’m a fan of it. and If we race on the street, will we just be fined or there’s a jail for it? Thanks

  112. I love your videos. They keep me smiling as I miss Thailand. Favorite part when you talk about the kids having nothing, but happy. That’s Thailand. Spiritually wealthy. Us Americans are materialistic wealthy, but not spiritually wealthy. You dont need much to be happy and certainly dont need fuckin tic tok. 555.

  113. Spot on brother! Possibly the best video youโ€™ve produced. We could see you were genuinely touched by those kids in the village. Your comments on gratitude and perspective were very much appreciated… good work bro!

  114. At 15:36 that sing have Thai, English, Karen and Hmong languages written on it. So happy to see you visit an area where I was born and live there till 14 years old and moved to Australia. You should visit Mae Salap and see Salawin river the longest river in Thailand.

  115. I know what activity the people of micro do in their spare time, Screwing. the town seamed empty then 200 kids come out. little known fact of micro, their are only 20 adults in the town and 200 kids. now thats a whole lota *ucking

  116. You’re a good man helping out the doggo, it will come back to the food. Not sure about strip club comment, lol. Take it easy bro. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

  117. Did you know that the Hmong people originally immigrated to Thailand from Mongolia? You can see it in their faces too.
    Donโ€™t worry to say hello. Being inter (international) is HiSo (high society) in Thailand. Even the comedies making fun of it ๐Ÿ˜‰

  118. When you were talking about those kids in the village it reminded of a conversation I had with a young Thai couple last evening. They own a small guest house with a little restaurant and bar. I passed by about a month ago and they had a BBQ set on the road in front of their place trying to make a little money. I stopped and they were so nice I kept going back and have gotten to know them. My neighbour is a Government Official whom I talk to regularly. He had just come back from Bangkok being briefed on reopening the country. He said it is going to be a very long time before regular tourist flights start coming back in. They will take it one country at a time and they are going to take it very slowly.

    So I mentioned that to them and they said we know , but we are glad that they are doing it that way. The wife said that maybe we will loose everything. Maybe we will have to go back to living like they did 100 years ago working in the rice fields because no Tourists. It does not matter we will do what we have to do to keep people like my Grandma and Grandpa safe.

    I think wow, such a different attitude to western countries. In Thailand when lockdown was on everybody wore a mask, no questions asked . They all work together to fight this Pandemic and they have done a great job.
