Before we get started, I want to know, what

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

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

She felt as if something bad was going to

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

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

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

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

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

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 said “no, 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

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

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

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…
