The Food Ranger is a YouTube channel dedicated to informing viewers of the best places to eat while travelling, managed by American vlogger Trevor James and his wife, Ting. Based in Chengdu, China, The Food Ranger posts weekly videos featuring everything from street food in Morocco to eating with locals in Istanbul. Since setting up the channel in March 2013, James has attracted nearly 300 million views across all his videos, while gaining a following of more than two million subscribers.

 

Unlike other travel channels that often deal in short videos of just a few minutes, The Food Ranger’s uploads are usually around 22 minutes long each. This means that each one plays out like a travel documentary in a series, with the series changing depending on which location they are in. The videos are shot with high quality cameras, offering resolution up to 2160p4k, usually in the style of a cameraman following James around wherever he is going. I particularly like the narration that goes over the top of the videos to provide explanation of what exactly is going on and to make it feel like a proper guided tour.

 

Another good feature is the ‘Out of Ten Ranger Rating’, which gives various restaurants and street food outlets a rating with a short review of what the food is like. This is great for discovering ideas of where to eat when travelling abroad, especially as you can view the food in such high quality before it gets eaten. This provides an interesting and unique alternative to traditional methods of finding out where to eat, such as TripAdvisor or a Lonely Planet guidebook.

 

One criticism that could be levelled at the channel is the promotion of merchandise included in each video. James consistently wears clothing bearing the name of his channel that is then available to buy below.

Pros
  • Each video structured like a documentary guide
  • High quality cameras used
  • Out of Ten rating provides idea of quality of food
Cons
  • Promotion of merchandise interspersed throughout channel

TravelSites.com is the best travel site list in the world.🏆💯🥇🌟

TravelSites.com is the go to place online to find information on the best websites, smartphone apps, books, YouTube channels and documentaries for travelers. Written with my years of experience trotting the globe, TravelSites.com gives budding young backpackers the chance to discover the top resources available for getting the most out of their trip, be it renting a car, learning the local dialect, finding a photographer or even just knowing what the weather will be like for the week. I have researched the internet to bring you a list of the top items in each category, while every single one has been meticulously reviewed, highlighting unique features, comparison to similar products, and all the pros and cons.

 

Why did you make TravelSites.com?💖🔥🚀

Well, I found that although there is naturally lots of information online concerning travel-related products and services, they seem to be scattered about, leaving the user to laboriously search for each individual item. If you wanted, for example, to discover an inspiring travel documentary while booking accommodation and flights to Rome, you would have to have at least three different tabs open at once. TravelSites.com puts all the information you need in one place, meaning you will not have to search far and wide to simply find out the best website for reserving a room in a hotel. With more than 40 different categories, travelers can stay on the same website to gather all the information they need, not only saving them time but also saving them money, by reading through the reviews to find the cheapest option.

 

What can you find on My lists and how did I rank them?🕵️‍♂️🧠🔗

My lists feature more than 40 different travel-related categories containing every resource a backpacker could ever need. Need help planning a trip? Want to keep up to date with the latest travel news? Looking for an inspiring book or blog? Desperate to find a restaurant away from the crowds? I’ve got you covered. My lists have been carefully put together by me and combined by quality, efficiency, value and functionalism to rank the items in descending order, with number one considered the item offering the best of all four factors. The criteria was constant throughout each category, whether it was for a cruise booking website or an Instagram account, in order to bring travelers the resources that would be the most useful for travelers.

 

How do I contact you, if I have a question?💡📞📧

Hmm, if you think that any best travel site is really missing in my travel directory, I can be reached by 📧email, Skype, Facebook Messenger, Twitter or Linkedin.
