My Most Viewed YouTube Videos

While uploading a video to YouTube the other day, I discovered that I’ve posted 139 videos since March 2006.  That’s a crazy number!  Who knew I was so productive?  I guess that degree in Communication with an emphasis on TV production actually amounted to something.  What was more surprising is that a number of them have received a large number of views.  I thought you might be curious to know what the top ten most viewed videos are.

Rice Harvest in Central Thailand
Views: 18,429

This video is a short one filmed while I was out bicycle riding in Minburi, to the east of Bangkok.  I happened to ride past a paddy where they were harvesting rice with a combine and thought it was interesting.  It seems that several thousand other people thought so, too.

#2
Amphawa Floating Market

Views: 16,474

While I recently posted a short video showing the view from the boats at the Amphawa Floating Market, this video above was the first one I made upon visiting the market.  Kind of a travelogue overview that, despite the low video quality, is well made.

#3
Hong Kong Bus Ride

Views: 15,643

While I think the particular line is no longer in service, I filmed a short video of the twists and turns of one of the buses on Hong Kong Island.  Rather like a roller coaster!

Suvarnabhumi Airport Test Flight Part 1

Views: 10,631

In advance of the new airport’s official opening, I secured a ticket on an inaugural test flight.  This trip actually has three other segments that also were highly viewed: Part 2, Part 3, and Part 4.

Jack’s Traditional Thai House

Views: 10,180

While up in Ayutthaya Province we stopped by the house of a friend’s parents.  It is a traditional Thai house and very pretty, but why it managed to get 10,000+ views is beyond me.

#6
Linger Performance Piece

Views: 9,479

Some performing arts students in Bangkok wrote and produced this performance piece about three female friends and their challenges.  I made a short video from it and it received a lot of views, probably from people searching for videos related to the song “Linger” from The Cranberries.

#7
First Attempt at Making Pasta

Views: 9,142

The popularity of this video doesn’t surprise me.  Who doesn’t want to learn more about making pasta?

#8
Tiger Temple Thailand
Views: 8,131

This temple in Kanchanaburi Province is popular with tourists and controversial among animal rights activists for alleged mistreatment of the tigers.  There were a number of comments that became heated as people threw around accusations.

#9
Macarons Attempt 2

Views: 7,420

Like the attempt at making pasta, there were many people curious about baking macarons.  Lots of helpful advice given, too, some of which contradicted advice give by other commenters.

#10
Erawan Waterfall

Views: 6,244

Thai tourist sites always do well among my videos as people search for images of sites they might go visit.  The Erawan Waterfall in Kanchanaburi Province is very beautiful and well worth a visit.

Well, I hope you enjoyed the videos.  I’ll return to more coverage of my Hong Kong trip tomorrow.
