by Alice

In a special episode of the outdoor travel reality show HAHAHAHAHA, Chinese actor Deng Chao and rapper After Journey take the spotlight as they venture into Laos, showcasing the cultural exchange facilitated by the China-Laos Railway.

Seventeen-year-old Khan Sing, a student at Xinhua School in Luang Prabang, Laos, usually attends Chinese lessons after school. However, on this particular day, his routine takes an unexpected turn as Deng Chao and After Journey join the class. The duo engages the students in learning the Chinese song “Tomorrow Will Be Better,” with Khan even winning an arm-wrestling match against Deng Chao. Reflecting on the experience, Khan expresses excitement and joy, noting Deng’s sportsmanship during their interaction.


The Laos segment marks the first international venture for HAHAHAHAHA, with the show’s guests traveling along the China-Laos Railway, exploring various destinations including Luang Prabang, Vang Vieng, and Vientiane. Their journey encompasses visits to local markets, adventurous activities like rafting and diving, as well as cultural exchanges with backpackers and Chinese merchants. Interactions with local students learning Chinese and engaging in sports activities add a unique dimension to their experience.


Premiering in March on Tencent Video and iQiyi, the show’s fourth season features a lineup of celebrities including Deng Chao, Chen He, Lu Han, Wang Mian, Dong Baoshi, and Fan Zhiyi, alongside occasional guest appearances. The Laos segment has already captured audience attention, ranking atop the Guduo Media online variety show popularity index in April.


For Khan Sing, the episode featuring his school and interaction with Deng Chao holds special significance. Having studied Chinese for two years, he aspires to pursue higher education in China, envisioning a future career in China-Laos trade. His journey exemplifies the profound impact of cultural exchange facilitated by initiatives like the China-Laos Railway.

Inspired by his brother’s experience working with Chinese locals, Khan’s aspiration reflects the growing interest and opportunities emerging from the deepening ties between Laos and China.
