    Requesting Youtube Travel Video Recommendations

    My husbands request for Fathers Day (tomorrow) was to travel overseas..... So the kids and I are going give my husband an "at home" travel experience including packing our Aeronauts, "flying" on our makeshift plane (in the dining room) complete with airplane socks/toothbrush packs and tray table food, then throwing some travel videos onto the TV and having us pretend we are there, finishing with eating some "local" cuisine and then back on the plane and back home.

    Silly I know - but Australia's travel ban isn't lifting anytime soon!

    Can anyone recommend some awesome YouTube travel videos? I'd love ones of China (as he's keen to see the Great Wall etc)!

    Thanks!

    I like the “vagabrothers” channel. They make videos about tons of places. You could pretty much “go anywhere.”

      Last weekend I watched the livestream of the Nebula Festival in Aomori, Japan, and the video is available on YouTube.

      The festival is held every summer and normally goes through the streets of Aomori, but they did a special Covid safe version this year. The illuminated floats are spectacular, although you might want to skip the speeches at the beginning.

        Cool idea! Hope the flight attendants remember the champagne and the cheese course.

        Not directly related but, when you are finished with your virtual plane ride. you can spend HOURS on the yootoobs searching for Aeronaut clips, how to pack, how to navigate local transportation, and helpful clips from dozens of tourists and tour companies exploring the destinations on your future itinerary.

          If you're interested in the journey and not just the destination, there are quite a few good videos of train journeys. They can be strangely hypnotic and relaxing. I recommend searching "YouTube for "sleeper train.

            Just to make it real, if he excuses himself to go to the bathroom, let him know that he has to wait until the flight attendants have removed the food cart from the aisle, and then put the "buckle your seatbelt" sign back on due to turbulence

            But seriously, if you're making up a video playlist, you might thrown in a few of the Jeenie Weenie shorts. They are fantastically funny.

              Well, this isn't China, but I'm a big fan of the walking tours youtube channels ... here's a long one of Portofino:



              And Chinatown in SF!



              there are probably lots of 4k walking tours of China, here's one I found of the Great Wall but didn't watch much of yet:



              oops, noticed this was a few days ago so .... next year?

                Thanks everyone for the suggestions - we had a great time pretending to travel! I really noticed trunkis are NOT our friends and we need to get our kids backpacks ASAP!
