Everyone wants to be a YouTuber these days, and it’s hardly surprising why. From spotty little kids making Minecraft videos that get 20m million views, generating thousands of dollars for the channel, to fashion, event promotions and movie review channels. However, English speaking YouTube channels in Thailand is still a bit thin on the ground. But if you want to know anything about Thailand, in this day and age, you do not have to visit a website, because you can visit a YouTube channel that is dedicated to talking about all aspects of the nation.
Back in the olden days, when we wanted to know some information on anything, we pretty much had to go to the library or consult someone who knew what they were talking about. In this day and age, the rule book has been torn apart. Everything we need to know from the price of coffee in Prague to where to buy submachine guns along the Burmese border is now at our fingertips with the internet.
Here are the criteria that these YouTube channels must adhere to appear on the list:
- Thailand related content
- English Speaking
- Currently active
- Not only nightlife channels
- Not just passing through

When you want to find a YouTube channel in Thailand who talks about beers, babes and bars, we have something for you. Kev is what some might see as the archetypal Pattaya ex-pat who trawls abut the city finding some cool hangout spots and girlies bars that you might miss if you are here on holiday.

#2 – Life in Thailand
The popular YouTube channel, LifeinThailand, has seen massive growth over the past couple of years. Although most English-speaking YouTube channels in Thailand are more focused on ex-pat life in tourist areas or travelling across the Kingdom or about the nightlife scene and Thai food, this one is a little more unique. If you are thinking of living in the more rural areas of Thailand where farming is more prevalent or are interested in this aspect of the Kingdom, this is the channel for you. LifeinThailand focusses on living in the rural countryside of Thailand. One of the main videos that went viral on this channel was about breeding catfish, which clocked over 5m views alone. It has catapulted this channel into one of the largest English speaking channels in Thailand.

When it comes to the best English-speaking YouTube channel in Thailand, nobody can hold a candle to Mark Wiens. With over 5-million subscribers, Mark has become a significant player on the YouTube scene. He mainly focused on food vlogs about Thailand, but because he has become so big, he has now surpassed that market and has evolved into an entirely different beast. Over the past year or two, Mark has been travelling around the world taking his followers on a culinary journey across the planet, which has obviously helped his numbers surpass the 5-million mark.
