  • I'm your host Landon Dowlatsingh and welcome back to another most amazing video.

  • Before we get started, I want to know, what is a scary list that you want us to cover

  • next?

  • Let me know your answers in the comments.

  • Also stay tuned till the end of this video because I will be responding to some of your

  • questions.

  • China is one of the world's oldest civilizations and their history is full of scary urban legends

  • and creepy folklore.

  • A lot of their stories focus on a variety of different ghosts and demons that will send

  • chills up your spine.

  • So, prepare to be frightened as we give you the top 10 scary Chinese urban legends.

  • Starting off this terrifying list in at number 10 with Bus 375.

  • This is a scary Chinese urban legend about a bus in Beijing that disappeared during a

  • cold November night.

  • According to the legend, there was a driver, conductor and four passengers riding on bus

  • 375 at midnight.

  • During the ride, the bus picked up two strange men who were holding a third man by his shoulders.

  • They went to the back of the bus and sat there in silence.

  • One of the passengers was an elderly woman and she was highly disturbed by the three

  • men.

  • She felt as if something bad was going to happen.

  • So, after a few stops, two of the passengers got off of the bus and then the elderly woman

  • decided to cause a scene in order to get herself and the other passenger off of the bus.

  • Once they were off of the bus the old woman apologized to the other passenger and said

  • that she was positive that those three men on the bus where ghosts and that something

  • horrible would happen to the bus.

  • Sure enough, the next morning the bus was found submerged in water and the bodies of

  • the driver, the conductor and the unidentified man were found.

  • The Banana Tree ghost lurks into number 9.

  • Legend has it that if you go into a forest at night, you might hear loud crying from

  • the spirit of a haunted ghost.

  • If you follow the sound, you will come across a woman who sometimes is holding a baby.

  • According to the legend, these banana tree ghosts will give you the winning lottery numbers

  • in exchange for their freedom.

  • In order to get the winning lottery numbers, you are supposed to tie a red string around

  • the banana tree trunk, stab sharp nails to the string and then tie the other end of the

  • rope to your bed.

  • Well there have been some greedy people who have done this, but they did not fulfill their

  • promise to free the ghost.

  • So in return, once they win the lottery, they will suffer from a slow, agonizing and painful

  • death.

  • Number 8 takes us to a Single Braid.

  • There is a road called Single Braid road that runs along the campus of the Chinese University

  • of Hong Kong.

  • It is called single braid road after an Urban Legend that involves a girl ghost with long

  • braided hair, walking alone at night.

  • According to the legend, during one cold night, a girl with long braided hair snuck onto a

  • train that was travelling from Hong Kong to the mainland.

  • She was an illegal immigrant and she saw that police officers were asking people for their

  • tickets and identification.

  • So instead of getting caught and possibly arrested, she jumped off of the moving train

  • but her braid got caught so her hair, scalp and skin was ripped off of her face.

  • Her boyfriend saw what happened and he didn't report it to the police and he never looked

  • for her.

  • So now, on this road at night, male students have claimed that they will see a woman who

  • has no face lurking around the campus looking for her boyfriend to get her revenge.

  • The Mongolian death worm wriggles into number 7.

  • This terrifying creature is believed to exist in the most desolate parts of the Gobi desert.

  • The Mongolian death worm is red in colour, between two and five feet long and they have

  • a very thick body.

  • According to the urban legend, this nightmarish creature travels underground and they create

  • waves of sand on the surface.

  • These creatures hunt livestock and humans and they can kill at very large distances.

  • They are highly venomous and they are able to spray their venom at their prey or electrocute

  • them.

  • The Mongolians believe that if you touch any part of the worm, you will die from a very

  • painful and fast death.

  • Fox Demons run into number 6.

  • These demons appear to look like beautiful and seductive women who will try to seduce

  • men.

  • If these unsuspecting men fall victim to the fox demon, then they will find themselves

  • at the mercy of the demon because in order to maintain their beautiful appearances, they

  • have to consume human hearts or livers.

  • The urban legend states that if you see villager corpses lying around with their hearts or

  • livers dug out, there's a high probability that a fox demon is lurking around and you

  • need to be on the look out, or you could find yourself becoming the next victim.

  • Next up in at number 5 is The lotus pond.

  • This urban legend is centered around a young couple who were so in love that they were

  • planning on running away together to elope and get married.

  • They made plans to meet at the lotus pond around midnight.

  • However, when the girl showed up, she was waiting at the lotus pond for a very long

  • time.

  • So when she went to look for her boyfriend, she saw him with another woman.

  • She was so upset by this that she committed suicide by drowning in the pond.

  • After she died, another young couple decided to meet by the lotus pond.

  • The boy was early and as he was waiting, he heard a female voice behind him say “I asked

  • you to meet me at midnight, didn't I?”

  • The boy saidno, you didn't” and all of a sudden two pale, ghostly hands emerged

  • from the water and dragged him into the pond.

  • He was drowned to death and ever since then, there is an unwritten rule that if you go

  • to the lotus pond during midnight and you see a girl, you should never answer her questions

  • or look at her.

  • Otherwise, you will find yourself in a lot of danger.

  • The hanged ghost falls into number 4.

  • Theses are the most common types of ghosts in Chinese Folklore and they are the angry

  • spirits of people who have committed suicide or they were the victims of executions.

  • They are believed to haunt the location where they died and according to the urban legend,

  • they look like a corpse with a very long red tongue that hangs out of their mouth.

  • They are also supposed to be highly convincing and they will attempt to persuade you to join

  • them in the afterlife by killing yourself.

  • Hanged ghosts are said to be very powerful, so if you ever find a hanged ghost, you are

  • most likely going to be their next victim.

  • The ghost woman haunts her way into number 3.

  • Legend has it that the nu gui or ghost woman was severely wronged in her life and she is

  • resurrected from the dead in order to seek revenge on the man who betrayed or harmed

  • her.

  • She will literally search for any and all men who have done women wrong and she will

  • suck the living essence out of her enemies.

  • These ghosts are often women who have been murdered or abused by their husbands.

  • And because of the pain that they endured, these ghosts will come back and brutally kill

  • men and only scare women.

  • The Shui Gui makes it onto this list in at number 2.

  • If you have a fear of drowning, I would avoid swimming in China.

  • And this is because according to a Chinese Urban Legend, the Shui Gui are very vengeful

  • ghosts of people who have drowned.

  • These water ghosts lurk in the same spot where they have unfortunately died in the water

  • and they wait patiently for a person to swim near them.

  • Once they have found their unsuspecting victim, the Shu Gui will drag them underwater, drown

  • them and the new person will become the new ghost and the cycle will continue on forever.

  • Oh, and apparently the Shui Gui will also take possession of the body and come back

  • to life while the victim's spirit will now try to take control of another living person's

  • body.

  • Finally, at the top of this frightening list in at number 1 we have The Jiangshi or otherwise

  • known as the Chinese vampire.

  • These haunted creatures are a mixture between a zombie and a vampire.

  • Their corpses rise from the dead, and their sole purpose is to kill the living and absorb

  • their spirits.

  • During the day, these creepy creatures remain in their coffins or they hide in dark caves.

  • But during the night, they walk like zombies and prey on innocent people.

  • The Jiangshi have the power to breathe life into corpses and they also have the ability

  • to build a body with bones or rotten flesh.

  • They apparently have red eyes, sharp claws and greenish skin.

  • Well, if I lived

  • in China, I would be making me a safe room

  • to hide

  • in during the night.

  • Well there you guys have it
