    Everyone's expecting these guys to act proper and cultured on a backpacking trip. You don't automatically get cultured as soon as you get on a plane and land in a foreign country. Not to mention these are just young lads having fun, as long as they're not disturbing locals.

    Nonsense.. Im yet to see ONE just ONE person who did shit like this, and did not have money in the bank.
    I did something like this at least twice in my life, and both times I almost ended up homeless
    Assholes who do this and still manage to have a stable house back home, are asshole who have a family whos got money.
    And /or paid off house on some land, like a ranch in Colorado,etc.. that you can always go back to
    Ive done nothing but live from one apartment to another.. if I did this I would last for about 2 days before Im out of money

    OK I'm American and I'm wondering why wouldn't you learn at least conversational Chinese before you go backpacking through China? No offense but that seems kind of stupid. I would definitely do that before hand because it only takes a week or two to learn basic conversation in Chinese- i've done it

    Hi Karl. Great set of travelling videos. Have watched all your travelling videos and you provide some great advice. I am planning a month trip though China, and I have everywhere pretty much planned out apart from Guilin. Did you stay in Guilin or Yangshuo? I am getting different opinions on where to stay. We plan on being there for maybe 4 nights and arrive and leave from Guilin. We want to do the countryside of Yangshuo, but there are also the caves and rice fields north of Guilin which would make it easier to stay there. Any advice or tips would be great? Thanks in advance.

      Well if someone goes to Hawaii or Alaska, they will say Hawaii + USA or Alaska + USA to differentiate that it is different from the mainland. Or Tasmania + Australia, Northern Ireland + UK, Crete + Greece. Why should HK + China be a problem?

    Hah, there's tons of white expats in Hong Kong, they're 5% of the population there. There's white people in almost every shot after he made that comment, lol. There's even neighborhoods called Little Paris (Sheung Wan). Hong Kong is home to the largest banks in the world and is an international financial hub just like London and NY. You weren't exactly in remote Bhutan or something, lol. You can tell you guys don't travel much - especially with the racist Chinese accent impersonation. Unfortunately traveling cost a lot of money - something you don't have and are incapable of earning.

      Kay Flip Quit projecting your own prejudice, you just dislike him. Imagining he walks as if 'owning the place' or that he's a 'big shot'. Lol calm yourself.
      Vlogging as a tourist can be obnoxious but he is very dry and sarcastic. It shouldn't be taken to heart.
      You come across like a catty wife comparing your brand of handbag to his. Degrading him for not being Oxbridge as if that's a qualifier for decency or experience--It's not. Then you imagine he's too poor to travel (evidently wrong) and compare his wages to bankers.
      Listing those qualifiers is typical bourgois class-obsessed yuppie mentality. Should we compare our Rolex GMT Pepsis and boat shoes next? Yuck. China is the largest market for fake status symbols so your mentality makes sense I guess.
      There's such a thing as rich well educated bores with zero life experience. They're not rare.

      +Kay Flip I came across this video after watching his India video. I guess this is his first video and you're probably correct, he hadn't traveled much when he shot this one. I don't think it has to do with his travel inexperience though, I think he is just very unobservant and quite young. His newer videos are much better.
