And come over here, let's look at the Big Buddha Excuse me Mom Sorry! ii, ok! [No problem, Ok] Look at the Big Buddha, he's standing SO tall, like Yuki said.

So straight.

So straight and tall.

Wait let's go look at the other buildings Come with me.

Come with me! So I think this over here is the mainbuilding.

it's so golden and beautiful and past this building the monks were climbing in trees and like doing their chores.

It's really cool buthopefully we can find THE nicest temple in Luang Prabang and figure out why this is a WorldHeritage Site Okay so we found it.

What's this called? Wat Xieng Thong Wat Xieng Thong.

This is the famous temple.

The most beautiful one.

The most beautiful one.

This is why Luang Prabang is a World Heritage Site.

Right? One of the big reasons.

Yes.

One of the reasons, not the only reason, one of the big reasons why it's a World Heritage sit.

So look.

This beautiful gold templebehind me this big courtyard, you can see the mountains in the distance and it's a really beautiful so we're gonna go check it out.

Let's go.

I don't know if I'm supposed to be quietI just feel like I am.

But these statues and this back wall are really impressive and look at this.

boat up here.

This, like, gold ship.

Whooo, oooh, the sun.

The sun.

really impressive it's world heritage See? Luang Prabang town of World Heritage Found it.

and then you find a place like this and youjust have to say Laos beautiful.

Look at that.

It's amazing.

One bowl each anything you want for a little over a dollar.

We made it to Vientiane! Yaaaaaay! After Luang Prabang After Luang Prabang And it's very different.

SO different.

Like, Luang Prabang was very small, everything was really close together andeverything was super cheap and here in Vientiane, it's like a bigger city you can kind of see.

There's a lot more cars There's this big ol' traffic circle and there's an arc over there.

What's that called? I have no idea.

No idea.

Well, we'll figure it out then.

Okay so we learned the name.

What's it called? Patuxai Aaaand what's it modeled after? In Paris? In Paris.

The Arc de Triumph That one.

So it's really cool that there's.

it's based off of something from France in Laos.

This is what's at the top of the Arc.

we were not expecting this So finally we made it to the top after two floors of.

what is that? Just souvenir shopping.

which really tricked us, we were worried for a second.

We made it to the top so now we can look out at the cityyyy.

So, somehow there's more to this.

we were down there but now we're here and we can actually go up a little bit further so we're gonna go also check out what's at the top.

It's really hot.

So the top top isn't actually very much it's just tiny little room with these small windows but we can see kind of a lot more of the city maybe? Let's take a look.

Some people would say Rumi is the worst.

But I'm not that mean but I'm the worst sort of so we left the cool air conditioned cafe.

to come look at this really nicebuilding temple museum thing Called That Luang Called That Luang but it's closed from 12 to 1 just started It's like, just now 12 o'clock eheh.

so we're gonna wait around in the scorching hot and humid weather until it opens again Oh Rumi~ Oh Rumi Alright so we are at one end of the street market the night market in Vientiane.

Huge difference between this one and the one in Luang Prabang quality is much higher.

The size is much higher.

The stuff is much different.

It's just.

may be better? And they have price tags as well.

They have price tags.

That's surprising.

So Let's go shopping.

I guess.

Hooooooo, it's so hot! Boiling hot! We're at the Buddha Park, sothere's this big thing behind us we're gonna go inside and then there'sso many Buddha statues all around here It's really cool It's really cool, it's just really hot.

So let's go check it out Eh, chotto abunai! [Ah, yikes!] waaa wueeee ugh Woooohhh It's hot.

Oh it's high actually.

What do you think? It's gorgeous.

It's gorgeous.

And hot.

I think this is something we definitely were not expecting to see Were you expecting to see this? Nope.
