Our relationship with YouTube is still in the honeymoon phase. Although we love seeing films in the theaters and on Netflix, it wasn’t until recently that we discovered the delight of binge-watching YouTube videos. Yes, we’ve always had a YouTube account but we weren’t active for the longest time.
As it turns out: YouTube is a terrific source of travel inspiration. The Google-owned platform is bursting with all sorts of travel videos — both informative and inspirational, both heavily-produced and rough-and-raw, both local and international. Whether you need help planning a trip, you simply want to be blown away by epic shots, or you simply want to be entertained, you’ll find a channel that suits your needs and wants.
In this post, we’re rounding up some of our favorite travel channels on YouTube!
Before we proceed, shameless plug! Please subscribe to our own YouTube channel, called Vins and Yosh! Our channel is much more on the informative end of the spectrum, so if you’re after destination guides and visa application tips, go ahead and show us some love! and because we’re currently stuck at home, we have a lot of time to edit videos so expect much more soon!

When planning a trip, we typically speak with written guides, not YouTube. but there are instances when words and still images alone are not enough. numerous times, videos offer a much more experiential peek into what to expect (how the place actually looks and how certain scams work) or how to do certain things (like how to use public transportation in destinations with challenging language barriers).
The following channels are not just inspiring but also extremely informative!
Rick Steves’ Europe
Rick Steves is one of the most trusted names in the travel sector, especially when it concerns Europe. Whenever I’m Europe-bound, I first check if Rick Steves has a feature on the place I’m visiting. His videos are not particularly comprehensive but they give a helpful summary of the destination including a quick history and best things to do.
Love, love, love this channel. Unlike many travel channels that tend to highlight only the sunny side, truthful guide prepares travelers for both the positive and the negative — scams, traveler traps, cautionary tales — and suggests better alternatives or other tips. Their content is focused mostly on Prague and Europe in general, but numerous of these suggestions apply to other destinations too.
Vagabrothers is a channel by brothers Alex and Marko Ayling, English teachers turned travel vlogging legends. At first look, their videos follow the common vlog format, but as you view longer, you’ll realize that they are surprisingly packed with helpful trivia and valuable tips.
And oh, before planning, view geography Now’s feature on the country you’re headed to. Fine, this isn’t really a travel channel, but it gives basic details you need to know about countries, which can influence how you want to method your trip.
I chose to have a separate category for Pinoy channels because (1) a substantial fraction of our readers are Filipinos, which implies (2) their content may be much more relatable because we have shared experiences and our own sets of challenges (like visa frustrations)!
I love these channels because they are also very informative. and although these are underrated personal vlogs, they shift the spotlight from themselves to the destination, injecting much more substance to the spectacle.

If there’s something I have learned from my years of travel, it’s that the world is full of all types of people and every single one of us has a place in it. It always blows my mind how one group can find terrific delight in something that another considers mundane, or how a place affects people differently. It’s amazing to see the world through various points of views, which is why I delight in viewing vlogs by people from all walks of life, from various corners of the world.
In this category, I compiled my favorite personal travel vlogs. I met with many of these in person, and it was a pleasure seeing how passionate they are with what they do both on and off-cam.
