SPĘDZIŁAM SYLWESTRA W LAOSIE/ I SPENT NEW YEAR’S EVE IN LAOS (LUANG PRABANG)
Hi my viewers It's December 30th and I just arrived in Laos yesterday Specifically to Luang Prabang, where I will spend News Year's Eve And I invite you to experience this adventure with me Airport in Luang Prabang Christmas in Asia We gathered 6 people and we are going to Kuang Si Waterfalls With girls from France And with the guys who are standing there near scooters And I'm sure we will have a great time there I'm not driving this time This time I'm prepared to travel by scooter First stop for refueling and then straight to the waterfall But I have to tell you that I'm afraid to ride a scooter I have some kind of trauma after an accident Okay, here we are. An hour's drive but everyone's butts hurt now, not good What a sweet dog Entry to the falls 25000 of this currency And we go first in suche a car And after that we will be already there I have to give a ticket first The way is through such a village People live here Look, here the teddy bear is chilling on a hammock A real bear He got out of the hammock There are a lot of people here But I think it will be worth it because I saw in the photos that it is a beautiful place We have already reached the waterfalls Unfortunately, I can't swim because of my wounds But at least I can admire it, because it's very beautiful here Such blue water as you can see Really wow A quick stop to watch the elephants on the way back from the falls Night Market in Laos, in Luang Prabang Big one Nice one We make a bonfire on the river bank Is it legal? Today is New Year's Eve and look how the locals are celebrating I'll show you soon I'm going up the hill to see the panorama of the city You see? They've been sitting there since the morning, because it's almost 4 p.m. and they... Or even after 4p.m. And they've been sitting there since the morning, music has been playing since the morning They have such a nice time there As you can see, there are different directions here One of them leads to Buddha's footprint so I guess it's here And yet it's here, not where I thought This is the Buddha's footprint You can also see a nice view of the city and the river from here Now I'm going to the top and there is an entry fee, so I'm going to but a ticket Okay, I'm at the very top but you can't get to the highest point because look what is happening there This So many people that it is impossible to get to the highest step I would have to squeeze through and I don't want to Reality Look what a beautiful sunset Here we can see Haw Pha Bang Temple but unfortunately it's already closed today Maybe I'll still manage to visit it before leaving Luang Prabang And here there is a bazaar Look, here is this crowded place I was in just some minutes ago This hill I mean, it's nice but the number of people there makes it less atractive And in general it is a hill and there are a lot of Buddha statues and other Buddhist gods This is how it looks like Our hostel has already started celebrating the new year And it's only 6 p.m.
But we start so early... But we are here so early because in Luang Prabang every place closes quite early, before 12 p.m. After that just one bar is open - bowling place and I don't know whether we will go there And we are here now simply because here is a happy hour till 6:30 p.m. so we came here And then we'll see how this New Year's Eve goes The locals are still having fun, since the very morning We've joined them Now we are going to do the pub crawl but some seconds ago we joined the locals who are celebrating since the morning And we dance with them It was really cool, an amazing experience For the countdown we came to the Night Market Something will probably happen here, there are some fancy tables Confetti shooters are ready already And my potatos are baking here Viewers, just one minute left to the New Year! Happy New Year my viewers! We move on We are going 13 people in one tuk tuk Supposedly it was supposed to be provided but it wasn't So now we are going with as many people as possible in one Now we are playing bowling and I'm winning for now What emotions! Because three of us almost win, we have the same number of points But I think I'll be third in the end Yesss!!! I'm at least second And the last one But it was a good game, exciting Everything is already closed but New Year's Eve is not over yet Hello in 2024 I wish you all the best in this year And greetings to you from Laos, from the Mekong River in Luang Prabang My friends from the hostel and I are going now to the old town Look what nice Christmas decorations they have here This countdown was official yesterday, here is the ad There we go And this is how the Night Market looks when it's still too early - empty I bought some fruit and got two mini bananas for free It's a little after 11 p.m. and we went to the wtorek because we were hungry And look that there is no one on the streets here And it's also really hard to find an open wtorek at this time Just for you to know We managed to grab some instant soups Hello my dear viewers It's 5:15 a.m. and I just woke up
And you may be wondering why I woke up so early But don't sorry, it's for a reason I just want to watch Morning Alms That is, a ceremony that takes place every day at sunrise And consists of monks walking through the streets of the city and collecting offerings from people Do you hear the roosters crowing? Here people are already distributing offerings to the monk Generally, such chairs are spaced every few meters And here people buy offerings, sit down and give them to the monks Who walk in the streets Later they give some of what they collect to the poor I know that you can't see me because it's dark Because the sun hasn't risen yet But I want to tell you that when I left the hostel I met a girl from my hostel, who also went to watch Morning And along the way we met three Polish people whom I had met at bowling And we joined them and now I'm hiking back up that hill - the crowded one To watch the sunrise there Look Unfortunately, there will be no sunrise because it's cloudy But still it's a nice view because last time I was here there were so many people that I couldn't see it Now we are entering the Morning Market which is open only till 9 a.m. It turned out that I'm going to the same waterfalls again because after that we are going to other place And now we have stopped to enjoy the views And look what it looks like And generally when we stop it's extremely hot but when we drive it's okay And here my friends have a photo session We are again in Kuang Si Waterfalls Nice blue water again This time I'm going to the top of the waterfall Uphill, of course And I can't more! Very steep We are already at the top and I just admit that it is very nice here A boat is coming here I absolutely didn't expect this Okay, it turned out that it is a tourist boat And you can buy a 15-minute cruise We need to inflate the tire Because the parking attendant noticed that it was deflated On the way back we stop in such place You can eat and drink here With a view of the rice fields There are such constructions here You sit there Nice It's the last time I'm going to these poufs, viewers And I've gotten so used to these people that I'll be sad when I leave tomorrow My dear viewers, immediately after returning from the waterfalls, I ran to a place where local people learn English And these are the meetings that take place twice a day, every day That consist mainly of conversations And both children and elders can come there - everyone And tourist or visitors who want to talk to local people are also welcome there And I think it's a very cool initiative Because both sides benefit from it Local people can improve their English, tourist can learn a little bit of a local language Or both sides can learn about each other's cultures So this is really cool and I liked it And I would love to go again Unfortunately, I didn't record much because I didn't want to record people so directly I have one short video But believe me it was cool And in the conversation group I was in, we sang Celine Dion's song, I learned how to say "I want a big bowl of noodles" in Lao The boy who was in our group learned how to say "high five" in English And in general it was cool and I will remember it fondly Today, most of the people I was with in the hostel are leaving To various places but most of them are going where I go And we've already checked out so we came for breakfast by the river I told you that almost everyone is leaving today and look how many backpacks there are Now we are going to the UXO museum This is a museum that shows something about the secret war here in Laos We are taking a tuk tuk but one driver wanted to take us for 50000 per person And here we go for 50000 in total for 2 people so it's cool Now we are going to the train station, around 10 people in one tuk tuk Here is everyone And everyone is going to Vang Vieng Compared to the entire country... Compared to the entire country, it is a very modern construction *compared to what I've seen so far Let's see inside but it seems great Here they check backpacks very carefully There is a tape like at airports To enter the station And no sprays may be taken to the train A friend's deodorant was thrown away Now all we have to do is wait for the train for an hour When the native speakers from 3 different English speaking countries are discussing whether cookies are actually cookies or biscuits or maybe something else Each wagon has its own pole and there are queues for a given wagon We have wagon number 2 And there are a lot of wagons I wonder how big the train will be And we can see a beautiful sunset Long one Let's take a look around the train in Laos We have a passage A toilet An entrance You can wash your hands Finally, I want to tell you two things from Luang Prabang I mean, the first thing I entered the hostel, I wanted to check in And I look and see people I was in the same hostel with in George Town First time in George Town And it was like 3 months ago And the same thing, there is a New Year's Eve We are in the bar And there is a guy who was the first person I spoke to when my friend Ola left The first stranger I talked to during my trip I met him after 3 months in Luang Prabang And I think I've already said it But it is incredible that wherever you go you keep meeting people you had met before Or simply you meet someone who knows someone you met This is a kind of network And this is amazing for me Hi viewers Leave a subscription!
