The Vice Guide to Travel is a travel show-style documentary show released in 2006 by Vice Media, as part of the online television division of Vice.[1] The show follows Vice employees as they travel to dangerous, weird, and offbeat locations throughout the globe.[2][3]


In 2006 VICE released the DVD “The Vice Guide to Travel,” which was funded by MTV[4] and inspired by the long-running series of "Vice Guides" in the magazine.[5] VICE reporters and camera teams visited locations such as the slums of Rio, Congo, and Paraguay. Spike Jonze helped edit the pieces.[4]

Videos such as the Vice Guide to Travel (2006) were made accessible for free on, and the docu-series The Vice Guide to Liberia[6] by Andy Capper won a Webby Award, helping foster a future partnership with CNN.[5] The episodes are currently available at, where was later merged.
