[~DETAIL_TEXT] => 00:00
what's going on YouTube this is Ledo
00:01
Diaz with quick trips and tips and I'm
00:04
going to give you some quick tips for a
00:05
quick trip to Lisbon Portugal alright so
00:08
the first thing I wanna talk about is
00:09
transportation to and from the airport
00:10
to the city center of Lisbon I know
00:13
that's one of the biggest worries that
00:15
people have is getting you know how to
00:16
get to the city centre so get the metro
00:18
the metro is right there at the airport
00:21
so right when you leave arrivals you
00:23
could take a right and there's some
00:25
kiosks where you get your ticket and
00:27
you're going to take the red line to the
00:29
Green Line and then different depending
00:31
on where you really want to end up
00:33
there's various stops in the Green Line
00:36
but like the last three it's like right
00:37
there in the city centre of of Lisbon
00:40
yes you could take a taxi but it's gonna
00:41
cost you anywhere from 10 to 15 euros
00:43
and 120 per per piece of luggage so
00:47
definitely take my recommendation take
00:49
the metros ease ease right there at the
00:50
airport it's a straight shot would be in
00:52
a city centre of Lisbon in 30 minutes
00:53
alright so where to stay I recommend
00:56
stayin in the old town um you can stay
00:59
in bother you I thought you are into the
01:01
party scene because you'll be right in
01:02
the middle of it but Lisbon is actually
01:04
kind of small so you could walk
01:05
everywhere and taking a tuk-tuk um or
01:09
taxi anywhere in in bar you'll get to
01:12
any location pretty fast and pretty
01:13
cheap the average pricing for a hostel
01:16
in Lisbon is anywhere from 30 to 80
01:18
euros per night ours was cheaper than
01:21
that I see never looks that nuts an area
01:24
that has a lot of shops restaurants bars
01:26
and who a boost the arch which is pretty
01:29
famous on landmark that you're going to
01:32
probably go and take a picture in front
01:33
of and it's right next to the water as
01:35
well so I recommend realistic because
01:38
you're really close to everything you
01:39
close to the water if you want to go for
01:40
a run in the morning we did it's awesome
01:42
but anywhere in Lisbon you really can
01:44
not going to go wrong and if you in the
01:47
middle this party scene body art though
01:49
is the place to be
01:50
so Lisbon has awesome food and these are
01:53
the foods that I tried so I'm going to
01:56
recommend and obviously if you are from
01:58
Lisbon and you're Portuguese go ahead
02:00
and write down below what your
02:01
recommendations are but this is what I
02:03
tried and this is what I recommend plus
02:05
the NASA which is a custard tart and
02:07
you'll find them everywhere um they're
02:09
pretty cheap I think we got some for
02:12
like one year
02:13
each you know I cannot vary depending
02:15
the area rap but they're everywhere I
02:17
definitely try you probably tried
02:18
various times they're delicious peedee
02:21
peedee chicken and bacalao is is
02:24
basically salted cod and not only is the
02:27
epochal Korsak is actually I grew up
02:28
eating it because I'm Puerto Rican so my
02:30
parents used to make pocket all the time
02:32
so it was kind of cool realizing that
02:35
it's such a popular food to try in
02:38
Portugal and it's and it's everywhere
02:40
sausages they're really um known for the
02:42
sausage like chorizo but they have a lot
02:44
of various kinds and the hostel that I
02:46
stayed and I actually had a tap is night
02:48
where they served us a whole bunch of
02:49
different sausages made in Portugal and
02:51
is really good so definitely try some
02:52
sausages and seafood in general great
02:55
seafood you know you're right by the
02:56
water you're right you know you're by
02:58
the ocean so seafood in general is
03:01
delicious and um in Lisbon one of the
03:04
best places to get that seafood is
03:05
severe hadiyyah-lah Mito and it's very
03:09
famous spot now because Anthony Bourdain
03:11
went to go visit a names on the show so
03:13
now it's like a huge tourist hotspot but
03:16
it's worth the way we waited I think
03:18
like two hours outside but it was
03:20
definitely worth it it is a little
03:21
pricey um but it is definitely worth it
03:25
amazing amazing food at that restaurant
03:28
wines in general really cheap great wine
03:31
in Lisbon um but they're known for their
03:33
port wine on the gene Vita Jing Zhi Jing
03:37
Zhi ha um cherry wine and it's a sherry
03:42
wine that's really really strong not
03:44
everybody likes it but definitely try it
03:46
just to because you might love it very
03:48
strong that's one of them were really
03:50
popular drinks there and we know badly
03:53
um you know vendors basically translated
03:55
a green wine and it is it's like the
03:57
wine that's not really ready to drink
04:02
it's like saying like eating a banana
04:04
before it's ripe Exopolitics give an
04:07
example so with us then the average cost
04:10
of hospitals again is 30 to 80 euros
04:13
food if you get a coffee it's one to two
04:15
euros the gingy ha is anywhere from 150
04:21
to two euros
04:22
water is one year old cheap restaurants
04:25
will be about
04:27
- eight euros per person medium-grade
04:30
will be 8 to 15 and high 1565 and plus
04:34
and depending on the onion budget you
04:36
know you could make it as cheap and as
04:38
expensive as you want and I forgot to
04:40
mention one of the coolest things about
04:42
when you're walking around in Lisbon and
04:44
sightseeing is that their food like
04:47
their street food is healthy you have
04:51
fruit carts so you can get like a cup of
04:54
fruit a very of like pineapple with
04:57
grave's watermelon and strawberries I
05:00
kind of dig the fact that there's a lot
05:03
of healthy eats out in the streets and
05:05
there's a lot of juice bars so yeah
05:07
that's that's pretty cool hi so things
05:09
to do you can get on a hop-on hop-off
05:11
tour bus there for 20 euros and you let
05:13
the ticket will last you 48 hours if you
05:15
go online right now so you can say 24
05:16
hours but if you talk to the person if
05:19
you talk to the one of the agents in
05:20
person will say that it's for 48 hours
05:22
so 20 euros for 48 hours and it's a
05:24
hop-on hop-off tour bus that has two
05:27
three lines and twenty-year-olds
05:30
includes two lines a red line and the
05:32
blue line to see most of the sights on
05:35
why should we mow pretty much all the
05:37
sights on on the hop-on hop-off tour bus
05:40
now there's a lot of different ways to
05:43
tour Lisbon
05:44
they have these tuk tuks that came from
05:46
Thailand and these like little
05:49
three-wheeled motor cars that fit like -
05:51
2 to 3 people so when it comes to what
05:53
to do this a lot to do and get in on a
05:56
hop-on hop-off tour bus you're going to
05:58
do most of those things so I'm not going
05:59
to list them list them out you can go on
06:02
the hop on hop off tour hop on hop off
06:05
tour bus website and it'll give you a
06:07
list of all the little stops that'll
06:10
that'll do if you have any
06:12
recommendations on things to do is
06:14
specifically that are probably not on a
06:16
hop-on hop-off tour bus or on a tuk tuk
06:18
tour bus or whatever anything like that
06:20
go ahead and write them down below and
06:21
it'll be greatly appreciated tuk-tuk can
06:24
give you a tour but there are a lot
06:27
pricier um you can use them as a taxi
06:29
but you could but they also provide
06:32
tours they wanted to charge us like 60
06:34
or 80 euros for like four hour three
06:36
hours there's also
06:38
like segways that we saw people like in
06:40
these go-karts and you know there's bike
06:43
toys that you could ran these electric
06:45
bikes so there's a lot of different ways
06:47
to tour lisbon itself not just bus tours
06:50
and like I said using the tuk-tuk we
06:52
could you could actually use it as a
06:53
taxi because there's been a being so um
06:57
having so many hills walking up and down
07:00
those hills will be very tired there's a
07:02
lot of things to see and do in Lisbon I
07:04
recommend seeing all the sights my
07:07
favorites were the a-level or Santa who
07:10
stats which is this elevator that's been
07:12
there since 1902
07:15
so definitely my thing but it you pay
07:17
five sixty to go all the way up and you
07:21
have a 360 view of the entire city
07:28
Lisbon has a bunch of rooftop Bars they
07:31
have beautiful views of the city so
07:32
definitely check out a rooftop bar I'm
07:35
not going to recommend every any
07:37
specific one because there's so many
07:39
just make sure that you have it on your
07:41
list to do that all right and lastly our
07:43
last thing I'm going to recommend is
07:45
that you take a nap um the nightlife in
07:49
Lisbon is insane it's amazing but it's
07:53
long hours so also that come from the US
07:56
we're not used to that our place is
07:58
closed anywhere from 2 to 3 a.m. so when
08:02
you go out and Lisbon some places won't
08:04
even open until 1:00 so I recommend
08:08
taking a nap during the day um you know
08:11
lower like 6:00 to 8:00 get have a late
08:13
dinner and then that way you can last
08:14
the night there's awesome awesome bars
08:17
and restaurants try to avoid lux because
08:21
a racist um so yeah screw you lux for
08:24
not letting us in and trying to charge
08:25
us 240 euros per person because we were
08:28
not unfortunately and that's pretty much
08:31
stuff so I usually don't say anything
08:33
negative about any place but lux
08:36
so those are my quick tips for a quick
08:38

what's going on YouTube this is Ledo
00:01
Diaz with quick trips and tips and I'm
00:04
going to give you some quick tips for a
00:05
quick trip to Lisbon Portugal alright so
00:08
the first thing I wanna talk about is
00:09
transportation to and from the airport
00:10
to the city center of Lisbon I know
00:13
that's one of the biggest worries that
00:15
people have is getting you know how to
00:16
get to the city centre so get the metro
00:18
the metro is right there at the airport
00:21
so right when you leave arrivals you
00:23
could take a right and there's some
00:25
kiosks where you get your ticket and
00:27
you're going to take the red line to the
00:29
Green Line and then different depending
00:31
on where you really want to end up
00:33
there's various stops in the Green Line
00:36
but like the last three it's like right
00:37
there in the city centre of of Lisbon
00:40
yes you could take a taxi but it's gonna
00:41
cost you anywhere from 10 to 15 euros
00:43
and 120 per per piece of luggage so
00:47
definitely take my recommendation take
00:49
the metros ease ease right there at the
00:50
airport it's a straight shot would be in
00:52
a city centre of Lisbon in 30 minutes
00:53
alright so where to stay I recommend
00:56
stayin in the old town um you can stay
00:59
in bother you I thought you are into the
01:01
party scene because you'll be right in
01:02
the middle of it but Lisbon is actually
01:04
kind of small so you could walk
01:05
everywhere and taking a tuk-tuk um or
01:09
taxi anywhere in in bar you'll get to
01:12
any location pretty fast and pretty
01:13
cheap the average pricing for a hostel
01:16
in Lisbon is anywhere from 30 to 80
01:18
euros per night ours was cheaper than
01:21
that I see never looks that nuts an area
01:24
that has a lot of shops restaurants bars
01:26
and who a boost the arch which is pretty
01:29
famous on landmark that you're going to
01:32
probably go and take a picture in front
01:33
of and it's right next to the water as
01:35
well so I recommend realistic because
01:38
you're really close to everything you
01:39
close to the water if you want to go for
01:40
a run in the morning we did it's awesome
01:42
but anywhere in Lisbon you really can
01:44
not going to go wrong and if you in the
01:47
middle this party scene body art though
01:49
is the place to be
01:50
so Lisbon has awesome food and these are
01:53
the foods that I tried so I'm going to
01:56
recommend and obviously if you are from
01:58
Lisbon and you're Portuguese go ahead
02:00
and write down below what your
02:01
recommendations are but this is what I
02:03
tried and this is what I recommend plus
02:05
the NASA which is a custard tart and
02:07
you'll find them everywhere um they're
02:09
pretty cheap I think we got some for
02:12
like one year
02:13
each you know I cannot vary depending
02:15
the area rap but they're everywhere I
02:17
definitely try you probably tried
02:18
various times they're delicious peedee
02:21
peedee chicken and bacalao is is
02:24
basically salted cod and not only is the
02:27
epochal Korsak is actually I grew up

02:44
of various kinds and the hostel that I
02:46
stayed and I actually had a tap is night
02:48
where they served us a whole bunch of
02:49
different sausages made in Portugal and
02:51
is really good so definitely try some
02:52
sausages and seafood in general great
02:55
seafood you know you're right by the
02:56
water you're right you know you're by
02:58
the ocean so seafood in general is
03:01
delicious and um in Lisbon one of the
03:04
best places to get that seafood is
03:05
severe hadiyyah-lah Mito and it's very
03:09
famous spot now because Anthony Bourdain
03:11
went to go visit a names on the show so
03:13
now it's like a huge tourist hotspot but
03:16
it's worth the way we waited I think
03:18
like two hours outside but it was
03:20
definitely worth it it is a little
03:21
pricey um but it is definitely worth it
03:25
amazing amazing food at that restaurant
03:28
wines in general really cheap great wine
03:31
in Lisbon um but they're known for their
03:33
port wine on the gene Vita Jing Zhi Jing
03:37
Zhi ha um cherry wine and it's a sherry
03:42
wine that's really really strong not
03:44
everybody likes it but definitely try it
03:46
just to because you might love it very
03:48
strong that's one of them were really
03:50
popular drinks there and we know badly
03:53
um you know vendors basically translated
03:55
a green wine and it is it's like the
03:57
wine that's not really ready to drink
04:02
it's like saying like eating a banana
04:04
before it's ripe Exopolitics give an
04:07
example so with us then the average cost
04:10
of hospitals again is 30 to 80 euros
04:13
food if you get a coffee it's one to two
04:15
euros the gingy ha is anywhere from 150
04:21
to two euros
04:22
water is one year old cheap restaurants
04:25
will be about
04:27
- eight euros per person medium-grade
04:30
will be 8 to 15 and high 1565 and plus
04:34
and depending on the onion budget you
04:36
know you could make it as cheap and as
04:38
expensive as you want and I forgot to
04:40
mention one of the coolest things about
04:42
when you're walking around in Lisbon and
04:44
sightseeing is that their food like
04:47
their street food is healthy you have
04:51
fruit carts so you can get like a cup of
04:54
fruit a very of like pineapple with
04:57
grave's watermelon and strawberries I
05:00
kind of dig the fact that there's a lot
05:03
of healthy eats out in the streets and
05:05
there's a lot of juice bars so yeah
05:07
that's that's pretty cool hi so things
05:09
to do you can get on a hop-on hop-off
05:11
tour bus there for 20 euros and you let
05:13
the ticket will last you 48 hours if you
05:15
go online right now so you can say 24
05:16
hours but if you talk to the person if
05:19
you talk to the one of the agents in
05:20
person will say that it's for 48 hours
05:22
so 20 euros for 48 hours and it's a
05:24
hop-on hop-off tour bus that has two
05:27
three lines and twenty-year-olds
05:30
includes two lines a red line and the
05:32
blue line to see most of the sights on
05:35
why should we mow pretty much all the
05:37
sights on on the hop-on hop-off tour bus
05:40
now there's a lot of different ways to
05:43
tour Lisbon
05:44
they have these tuk tuks that came from
05:46
Thailand and these like little
05:49
three-wheeled motor cars that fit like -
05:51
2 to 3 people so when it comes to what
05:53
to do this a lot to do and get in on a
05:56
hop-on hop-off tour bus you're going to
05:58
do most of those things so I'm not going
05:59
to list them list them out you can go on
06:02
the hop on hop off tour hop on hop off
06:05
tour bus website and it'll give you a
06:07
list of all the little stops that'll
06:10
that'll do if you have any
06:12
recommendations on things to do is
06:14
specifically that are probably not on a
06:16
hop-on hop-off tour bus or on a tuk tuk
06:18
tour bus or whatever anything like that
06:20
go ahead and write them down below and
06:21
it'll be greatly appreciated tuk-tuk can
06:24
give you a tour but there are a lot
06:27
pricier um you can use them as a taxi
06:29
but you could but they also provide
06:32
tours they wanted to charge us like 60
06:34
or 80 euros for like four hour three
06:36
hours there's also
06:38
like segways that we saw people like in
06:40
these go-karts and you know there's bike
06:43
toys that you could ran these electric
06:45
bikes so there's a lot of different ways
06:47
to tour lisbon itself not just bus tours
06:50
and like I said using the tuk-tuk we
06:52
could you could actually use it as a
06:53
taxi because there's been a being so um
06:57
having so many hills walking up and down
07:00
those hills will be very tired there's a
07:02
lot of things to see and do in Lisbon I
07:04
recommend seeing all the sights my
07:07
favorites were the a-level or Santa who
07:10
stats which is this elevator that's been
07:12
there since 1902
07:15
so definitely my thing but it you pay
07:17
five sixty to go all the way up and you
07:21
have a 360 view of the entire city
07:28
Lisbon has a bunch of rooftop Bars they
07:31
have beautiful views of the city so
07:32
definitely check out a rooftop bar I'm
07:35
not going to recommend every any
07:37
specific one because there's so many
07:39
just make sure that you have it on your
07:41
list to do that all right and lastly our
07:43
last thing I'm going to recommend is
07:45
that you take a nap um the nightlife in
07:49
Lisbon is insane it's amazing but it's
07:53
long hours so also that come from the US
07:56
we're not used to that our place is
07:58
closed anywhere from 2 to 3 a.m. so when
08:02
you go out and Lisbon some places won't
08:04
even open until 1:00 so I recommend
08:08
taking a nap during the day um you know
08:11
lower like 6:00 to 8:00 get have a late
08:13
dinner and then that way you can last
08:14
the night there's awesome awesome bars
08:17
and restaurants try to avoid lux because
08:21
a racist um so yeah screw you lux for
08:24
not letting us in and trying to charge
08:25
us 240 euros per person because we were
08:28
not unfortunately and that's pretty much
08:31
stuff so I usually don't say anything
08:33
negative about any place but lux
08:36

08:38

what's going on YouTube this is Ledo
00:01
Diaz with quick trips and tips and I'm
00:04
going to give you some quick tips for a
00:05
quick trip to Lisbon Portugal alright so
00:08
the first thing I wanna talk about is
00:09
transportation to and from the airport
00:10
to the city center of Lisbon I know
00:13
that's one of the biggest worries that
00:15
people have is getting you know how to
00:16
get to the city centre so get the metro
00:18
the metro is right there at the airport
00:21
so right when you leave arrivals you
00:23
could take a right and there's some
00:25
kiosks where you get your ticket and
00:27
you're going to take the red line to the
00:29
Green Line and then different depending
00:31
on where you really want to end up
00:33
there's various stops in the Green Line
00:36
but like the last three it's like right
00:37
there in the city centre of of Lisbon
00:40
yes you could take a taxi but it's gonna
00:41
cost you anywhere from 10 to 15 euros
00:43
and 120 per per piece of luggage so
00:47
definitely take my recommendation take
00:49
the metros ease ease right there at the
00:50
airport it's a straight shot would be in
00:52
a city centre of Lisbon in 30 minutes
00:53
alright so where to stay I recommend
00:56
stayin in the old town um you can stay
00:59
in bother you I thought you are into the
01:01
party scene because you'll be right in
01:02
the middle of it but Lisbon is actually
01:04
kind of small so you could walk
01:05
everywhere and taking a tuk-tuk um or
01:09
taxi anywhere in in bar you'll get to
01:12
any location pretty fast and pretty
01:13
cheap the average pricing for a hostel
01:16
in Lisbon is anywhere from 30 to 80
01:18
euros per night ours was cheaper than
01:21
that I see never looks that nuts an area
01:24
that has a lot of shops restaurants bars
01:26
and who a boost the arch which is pretty
01:29
famous on landmark that you're going to
01:32
probably go and take a picture in front
01:33
of and it's right next to the water as
01:35
well so I recommend realistic because
01:38
you're really close to everything you
01:39
close to the water if you want to go for
01:40
a run in the morning we did it's awesome
01:42
but anywhere in Lisbon you really can
01:44
not going to go wrong and if you in the
01:47
middle this party scene body art though
01:49
is the place to be
01:50
so Lisbon has awesome food and these are
01:53
the foods that I tried so I'm going to
01:56
recommend and obviously if you are from
01:58
Lisbon and you're Portuguese go ahead
02:00
and write down below what your
02:01
recommendations are but this is what I
02:03
tried and this is what I recommend plus
02:05
the NASA which is a custard tart and
02:07
you'll find them everywhere um they're
02:09
pretty cheap I think we got some for
02:12
like one year
02:13
each you know I cannot vary depending
02:15
the area rap but they're everywhere I
02:17
definitely try you probably tried
02:18
various times they're delicious peedee
02:21
peedee chicken and bacalao is is
02:24
basically salted cod and not only is the
02:27
epochal Korsak is actually I grew up
02:28
eating it because I'm Puerto Rican so my
02:30
parents used to make pocket all the time
02:32
so it was kind of cool realizing that
02:35
it's such a popular food to try in
02:38
Portugal and it's and it's everywhere
02:40
sausages they're really um known for the
02:42
sausage like chorizo but they have a lot
02:44
of various kinds and the hostel that I
02:46
stayed and I actually had a tap is night
02:48
where they served us a whole bunch of
02:49
different sausages made in Portugal and
02:51
is really good so definitely try some
02:52
sausages and seafood in general great
02:55
seafood you know you're right by the
02:56
water you're right you know you're by
02:58
the ocean so seafood in general is
03:01
delicious and um in Lisbon one of the
03:04
best places to get that seafood is
03:05
severe hadiyyah-lah Mito and it's very
03:09
famous spot now because Anthony Bourdain
03:11
went to go visit a names on the show so
03:13
now it's like a huge tourist hotspot but
03:16
it's worth the way we waited I think
03:18
like two hours outside but it was
03:20
definitely worth it it is a little
03:21
pricey um but it is definitely worth it
03:25
amazing amazing food at that restaurant
03:28
wines in general really cheap great wine
03:31
in Lisbon um but they're known for their
03:33
port wine on the gene Vita Jing Zhi Jing
03:37
Zhi ha um cherry wine and it's a sherry
03:42
wine that's really really strong not
03:44
everybody likes it but definitely try it
03:46
just to because you might love it very
03:48
strong that's one of them were really
03:50
popular drinks there and we know badly
03:53
um you know vendors basically translated
03:55
a green wine and it is it's like the
03:57
wine that's not really ready to drink
04:02
it's like saying like eating a banana
04:04
before it's ripe Exopolitics give an
04:07
example so with us then the average cost
04:10
of hospitals again is 30 to 80 euros
04:13
food if you get a coffee it's one to two
04:15 [SUBTITLES_PART2] => euros the gingy ha is anywhere from 150
04:21
to two euros
04:22
water is one year old cheap restaurants
04:25
will be about
04:27
- eight euros per person medium-grade
04:30
will be 8 to 15 and high 1565 and plus
04:34
and depending on the onion budget you
04:36
know you could make it as cheap and as
04:38
expensive as you want and I forgot to
04:40
mention one of the coolest things about
04:42
when you're walking around in Lisbon and
04:44
sightseeing is that their food like
04:47
their street food is healthy you have
04:51
fruit carts so you can get like a cup of
04:54
fruit a very of like pineapple with
04:57
grave's watermelon and strawberries I
05:00
kind of dig the fact that there's a lot
05:03
of healthy eats out in the streets and
05:05
there's a lot of juice bars so yeah
05:07
that's that's pretty cool hi so things
05:09
to do you can get on a hop-on hop-off
05:11
tour bus there for 20 euros and you let
05:13
the ticket will last you 48 hours if you
05:15
go online right now so you can say 24
05:16
hours but if you talk to the person if
05:19
you talk to the one of the agents in
05:20
person will say that it's for 48 hours
05:22
so 20 euros for 48 hours and it's a
05:24
hop-on hop-off tour bus that has two
05:27
three lines and twenty-year-olds
05:30
includes two lines a red line and the
05:32
blue line to see most of the sights on
05:35
why should we mow pretty much all the
05:37
sights on on the hop-on hop-off tour bus
05:40
now there's a lot of different ways to
05:43
tour Lisbon
05:44
they have these tuk tuks that came from
05:46
Thailand and these like little
05:49
three-wheeled motor cars that fit like -
05:51
2 to 3 people so when it comes to what
05:53
to do this a lot to do and get in on a
05:56
hop-on hop-off tour bus you're going to
05:58
do most of those things so I'm not going
05:59
to list them list them out you can go on
06:02
the hop on hop off tour hop on hop off
06:05
tour bus website and it'll give you a
06:07
list of all the little stops that'll
06:10
that'll do if you have any
06:12
recommendations on things to do is
06:14
specifically that are probably not on a
06:16
hop-on hop-off tour bus or on a tuk tuk
06:18
tour bus or whatever anything like that
06:20
go ahead and write them down below and
06:21
it'll be greatly appreciated tuk-tuk can
06:24
give you a tour but there are a lot
06:27
pricier um you can use them as a taxi
06:29
but you could but they also provide
06:32
tours they wanted to charge us like 60
06:34
or 80 euros for like four hour three
06:36
hours there's also
06:38
like segways that we saw people like in
06:40
these go-karts and you know there's bike
06:43
toys that you could ran these electric
06:45
bikes so there's a lot of different ways
06:47
to tour lisbon itself not just bus tours
06:50
and like I said using the tuk-tuk we
06:52
could you could actually use it as a
06:53
taxi because there's been a being so um
06:57
having so many hills walking up and down
07:00

hey guys welcome to another hotel room
00:02
tour this is gonna look like we spent
00:04
our life in hotels but we actually don't
00:07
it's because it's like December so it's
00:10
Christmas month and we have a lot of
00:11
family things to go to so this week we
00:14
are in Dublin were in the Westbury hotel
00:17
and it's our first time here again so I
00:20
thought I would do a room tour actually
00:21
kind of like doing these for myself as
00:23
well to look back on and kind of like I
00:25
don't know I'm weird but I like doing
00:28
room tourism hotels I'm in the bathroom
00:30
right now I found my little hotel
00:32
slippers on and this is our cool mirror
00:36
it's like absolutely ginormous it
00:39
probably looks a bit confusing on camera
00:41
but it's opposite our sinks and he's got
00:46
two sinks the hotel staff actually did
00:50
this for me it was really nice they put
00:51
all my products that I had taken out on
00:53
to a little towel so they wouldn't get
00:55
wet they gave us a little pack take a
00:59
long pack for Amelia and it's Dunstan's
01:01
baby stuff but they were not stingy with
01:04
the products because we got two sets so
01:06
Jonathan got one and I got one which I
01:08
thought was pretty impressive then we've
01:10
got our bath tub here with the shower
01:13
toilet the day way scales I thought that
01:17
was crazy the only other hotel I'd be to
01:20
that have had a way he's killed in it
01:21
was the one that we got married in then
01:23
we have this handsome gentleman right
01:26
here testing out the slippers and the
01:32
dressing gown here is our front door so
01:36
I'll stand like how you come in that's
01:38
our bathroom that's Amelia and it's
01:42
actually the one thing about this room I
01:44
love it I really like it but it's very
01:45
very dark and I think that might be a
01:48
combination of just the dull weather the
01:50
dull Irish weather and also I don't know
01:54
the lights are very dim but I guess it's
01:57
kind of relaxing at the same time so
01:59
we've got lots of closet space here I
02:02
just have all our luggage
02:05
you know borings doggie mess Jonathan
02:09
probably left him out yeah he did mess
02:11
in there
02:12
we've got an espresso machine which we
02:14
are very impressed with because we have
02:16
an espresso machine - so I think we're
02:18
gonna steal all these capsules but don't
02:21
tell the hotel okay and then we've got
02:23
our mini bar or mini-fridge or whatever
02:26
and it's topped full which is dangerous
02:29
we had some cute little desserts last

night that we saved and then the place
02:36
came with lots of chocolates it came
02:38
with Butler's we had a Butler's each on
02:41

02:46
and a little dresser there that I just
02:50
put all Amelia's stuff in like her
02:53
nappies and her clothes there's lots of
02:56
storage space and we've got a lamp I've
03:00
got our view which I don't know what
03:03
that looks on - well obviously don't
03:07
blink but I don't know what's true for
03:10
anyone who lives in Dublin that's a it's
03:12
Grafton Street and I'll be like I think
03:16
Dane Street is just there yeah what's
03:18
cool is that there's double windows
03:20
there's two sets of windows so there's
03:21
no noise at all medias gonna write a
03:24
note we've got our armchairs
03:27
I haven't Mia's toys and her books and
03:30
they gave us some magazines which was
03:33
very nice
03:33
here is our four-post bed how cool is
03:38
that
03:38
we did some damage today I really wanted
03:41
to check out a four-post bed because I'm
03:42
in-between a four-post bed and a sleigh
03:47
bed because we want to get a new bed and
03:49
I actually quite like the four of us but
03:51
it's quite grand
03:52
we've got Amelia's little cot over here
03:55
by the window and she got a blanket
03:57
another nice view and that's our bed
04:03
with our bedside tables that's
04:04
Jonathan's side and my side it's not a
04:07
huge bed but it's very tall it's very
04:09
high I always feel like I'm a little
04:11
tiny dwarf when I get onto that bed then
04:13
we have our desk over here with another
04:15
mayor
04:16
and I think that is pretty much it
04:19
that's the tour so thank you guys for
04:23
watching this video I'll go back in here
04:25
too to end it hopefully you guys liked
04:28
this little tour I'll put pictures on my
04:30
blog as well and I will talk to you guys
04:32
tomorrow bye [~DETAIL_TEXT] => 00:00
hey guys welcome to another hotel room
00:02
tour this is gonna look like we spent
00:04
our life in hotels but we actually don't
00:07
it's because it's like December so it's
00:10
Christmas month and we have a lot of
00:11
family things to go to so this week we
00:14
are in Dublin were in the Westbury hotel
00:17
and it's our first time here again so I
00:20
thought I would do a room tour actually
00:21
kind of like doing these for myself as
00:23
well to look back on and kind of like I
00:25
don't know I'm weird but I like doing
00:28
room tourism hotels I'm in the bathroom
00:30
right now I found my little hotel
00:32
slippers on and this is our cool mirror
00:36
it's like absolutely ginormous it
00:39
probably looks a bit confusing on camera
00:41
but it's opposite our sinks and he's got
00:46
two sinks the hotel staff actually did
00:50
this for me it was really nice they put
00:51
all my products that I had taken out on
00:53
to a little towel so they wouldn't get
00:55
wet they gave us a little pack take a
00:59
long pack for Amelia and it's Dunstan's
01:01
baby stuff but they were not stingy with
01:04
the products because we got two sets so
01:06
Jonathan got one and I got one which I
01:08
thought was pretty impressive then we've
01:10
got our bath tub here with the shower
01:13
toilet the day way scales I thought that
01:17
was crazy the only other hotel I'd be to
01:20
that have had a way he's killed in it
01:21
was the one that we got married in then
01:23
we have this handsome gentleman right
01:26
here testing out the slippers and the
01:32
dressing gown here is our front door so
01:36
I'll stand like how you come in that's
01:38
our bathroom that's Amelia and it's
01:42
actually the one thing about this room I
01:44
love it I really like it but it's very
01:45
very dark and I think that might be a
01:48
combination of just the dull weather the
01:50
dull Irish weather and also I don't know
01:54
the lights are very dim but I guess it's
01:57
kind of relaxing at the same time so
01:59
we've got lots of closet space here I
02:02
just have all our luggage
02:05
you know borings doggie mess Jonathan
02:09
probably left him out yeah he did mess
02:11
in there
02:12
we've got an espresso machine which we
02:14
are very impressed with because we have
02:16
an espresso machine - so I think we're
02:18
gonna steal all these capsules but don't
02:21
tell the hotel okay and then we've got
02:23
our mini bar or mini-fridge or whatever
02:26
and it's topped full which is dangerous
02:29
we had some cute little desserts last
02:32
night that we saved and then the place
02:36
came with lots of chocolates it came
02:38

ruk they got my name wrong again the

Marion hotel is located in the heart of
00:18
Dublin were right in the city centre
00:19
once you arrive in the hotel you don't
00:22
have very far to go to explore the
00:24
sights and sounds of Dublin what are we
00:27
about to enjoy here our take on the
00:29
traditional afternoon tea as well as
00:31
being a hotel the Marion also houses one
00:34
of the most significant art collections
00:36
in Ireland we decided back in 2009 to
00:44
take a different twist on the
00:46
traditional afternoon tea and encompass
00:48
the art collection that's housed in the
00:50
hotel
00:52
each one of these pieces of art which
00:56
provide the inspiration for the pastries
00:57
are located here at the Marion we kept
01:00
the color of the Garter and also at the
01:03
new parking sign in front of the desert
01:05
[Music]
01:11
the houses were built in the 1760s by
01:15

01:18

01:25
for being the birthplace of Arthur

Wellesley the first Duke of Wellington
01:29
it was someone's home a rich it was

someone's home and that would be our
01:32
Ray's undeath really mourning that our
01:35
guests are a home away from home
01:39
the gardens is probably one of the most
01:41
surprising features of the hotel it's
01:44
three quarters of an acre little oasis
01:46
of tranquility really so there is an
01:49
awful lot for a guest to choose from and
01:51
to experience when they stay with us I
01:53
am staying in the Lord Monck suite come
01:56
and have a look at my room Wow
02:01
it's a bit of a juxtaposition between
02:04
the old tradition and like the modern
02:06
finishes which is something that seems
02:08
to be happening all around the hotel the
02:17
Marian destruction is the perfect place
02:19
to stay whether you're a business
02:20
traveler or just a tourist but I checked
02:23
in and was immediately shown to my room
02:25
which was lucky enough to be the Lord
02:27
Monck suite during the afternoon I had
02:30
Artie with the hotel manager and then I
02:33
came back down here to the cellar bar
02:35

Laura, do you know where the bag with the antibiotics is?
00:17
Oh, here.
00:22
That’s one antibiotic.
00:27
Don’t know where the room key is.
00:31
Nuala and her daughter Laura are homeless.
00:34
For the last two weeks,
00:35
this hotel room has been their home.
00:38
I can never find this.
00:41
There is no normality.
00:45
It's the not knowing, the uncertainty,
00:47
the insecurity, despair.
00:50
What is going to become of you.
00:52
Then failure.
00:54
Inadequate parent.
00:56
And it just spirals out of control.
01:01
Getting up in the morning, getting ready,
01:06
that in itself you have to deem as an achievement
01:09
and sort of say, 'OK, well, you've done it today.'
01:15
More than 9.700 people across Ireland are living like this,
01:19
in emergency accommodation.
01:27
Now my daughter goes to college,
01:30
I make a point of getting up and dropping her in
01:33
because I would hate to think what I would become if I didn't have that focus.
01:39
Right, see you at two-ish.
01:42
Love you lots, take care.
01:45
Nuala’s landlord was forced to sell by his creditors,
01:47
an increasingly common situation in Ireland following the financial crisis.
01:52
She was told with only three months' notice to find a new place to live.
01:57
OK, the U Store is here on the left,
01:59
that’s where all our belongings are stored
02:02
until we finally get somewhere to call home.
02:06
In reality, it slaps you in the face.
02:11
This was our life, this was our home.
02:13
And now we have neither.
02:16
This one here.
02:22
There’s something in the letterbox.
02:27
Yep.
02:29
And there’s no one in it … we could have been still there.
02:38
Oh my God.
02:44
There’s an envelope in there, I hope it’s not Laura’s bank account stuff.
02:49
How long were you living here?
02:51
Nine and a half years. Strange that I can't go in.
02:56
I was sort of half expecting to see blinds down, for sale sign up.
03:01
But no, it’s lying empty.
03:05
You know, gosh.
03:06
Are you angry?
03:08
No, you do get past that stage.
03:11
You just become, I suppose, numb.
03:14
And just go ... what could have been, what might have been.
03:17
You know, there was no need for me to be out so soon.
03:22
So I don't know what the delay is in putting it up for sale,
03:25
but I'm not angry.
03:28
When they first registered as homeless six weeks ago,
03:31
the council placed Nuala and Laura in various hostels on a night by night basis.
03:37
Here we go.
03:40
Thank you for calling Dublin city council’s self-accommodation line for hotel bookings.
03:45
Please hold. Thank you.
03:48
Their hotel placement is more secure, but Nuala has to call every two weeks,
03:52
to reapply for their room.
03:54
Your current position in the queue is seven.
03:59
Seven?
04:08
Your current position in the queue is seven.
04:11
Could be on seven for 20 minutes!
04:16
Hello.
04:17
Yeah, that booking has been confirmed there for you, OK?
04:22
Happy days, thank you so much.
04:24
No problem.
04:24
Have a good day, bye.
04:29
Done, two weeks.
04:31
Yeah, thumbs up!
04:33
I'd rather have a home!
04:41
There is a chronic shortage of social housing in Ireland.
04:44
Governments just haven't been building council houses.
04:48
As an alternative,
04:49
authorities offer a housing assisted payment scheme called HAP,
04:53
under which councils pay rent to private landlords.
04:57
Nuala qualifies for HAP but under the terms of the scheme, it's her responsibility
05:02
to find a home to rent on the open market.
05:04
And in Ireland today,
05:05
those are few and far between.
05:09
Every day she goes to the library to search for properties and apply for viewings.
05:14
It’s a nightmare.
05:15
It's an absolute nightmare.
05:18
All you want is just that one person to say,
05:21
'I'm going to give these two girls a chance.'
05:25
Would you have a computer free?
05:26
Just over there, number C4.
05:29
C4. Great, thank you so much.
05:31
She sends out at least five applications a day.
05:35
But in five months,
05:36
she's had no luck.
05:38
Rental properties are so in demand that few even make it to a public viewing.
05:42
Your confidence takes a battering every single time.
05:46
And there's only so many times you can be knocked down and you can’t get back up.
05:51
But if you don't apply, you won’t know.
06:03
Roger Berkeley has been an estate agent in Dublin for 40 years.
06:08
I have never seen it this chronic for tenants in how difficult it is to find a home.
06:15
I’ve never seen it as it is now.
06:18
Even though the rents have gone up, they’re sky rocketing,
06:22
rents that would have been €1,200 a month five years ago,
06:25
they’re now over €2,000 a month.
06:27
What would you say are the causes of this current crisis?
06:31
Lack of supply of houses or properties or apartments
06:36
for the increasing number of tenants that are coming to the market.
06:40
We’re coming up to a house in Palmerstown that we recently let.
06:45
So this house here, was this like a exemplary case of how the rental market works at the moment?
06:50
Homeless HAP?
06:51
Yeah, and that was a house that went for €2,000 a month.
06:54
This is the one thing about homeless HAP,
06:56
you can have last year’s professionals are this year's homeless HAP sometimes.
07:03
It's like putting a Band-Aid on an open wound,
07:05
it's shovelling money at a problem, it's not solving the problem.
07:08
The problem is going to be solved
07:09
by more housing being available for tenants, I think.
07:14
A succession of Irish governments has relied on private developers to construct the country's social housing,
07:20
but the private sector has failed to deliver.
07:24
Are you on a waiting list for a council house?
07:27
I am. I've been on it now
07:31
I would say seven years
07:33
and I'm listed in around the 600 mark.
07:41
So possibly another six or more years.
07:48
Nuala is one of more than 70,000 people on a waiting list for a council house.
07:53
But despite the huge demand, this current government has built fewer than 500 homes
07:58
since it was elected in 2016.
08:01
When this government formed in May 2016, priority number one was to deal
08:05
with the housing situation at that time.
08:07
We recognise that you can't fix the housing supply issue overnight,
08:11
so we put together a five-year plan,
08:13
which we launched in August 2016.
08:16
But according to that plan that’s 85% of the total of new social housing
08:21
is actually going provided by the private sector until 2021.
08:24
Our commitment to that plan is that with a 6bn spend of taxpayers' money,
08:28
is to deliver 50,000 new social houses.
08:32
Do you agree that the solution to the housing crisis
08:35
is for the government and the local authorities to be building more housing?
08:40
Absolutely and that's exactly what we're doing.
08:43
You've got 1,300 families in Dublin alone currently in emergency accommodation
08:47
which means moving from hotel room from night to night or week to week.
08:50
So we’re trying to make sure that those people spend a very short time
08:53
in that emergency accommodation,
08:54
then move on to a more permanent house and that can be
08:56
a rented house or a purpose-built house, but what they want is a house.
09:00
Literally every week we have a housing discussion, housing meeting,
09:02
to make sure we stick to our plans of investing taxpayers' money
09:06
in new social houses and that’s what we’re doing.
09:08
Built by the government and not by developers?
09:10
Built by the government, yes.
09:11
There’s a combination of ways of building houses.
09:14
This department doesn’t physically go out and put the blocks together.
09:16
Naturally you pay builders to do that.
09:18
But it's state money building state houses that the state will own.
09:23
While Ireland waits for these promised houses to be built,
09:26
there’s little option for the almost 10,000 people
09:30
squeezed out of the private rental market and into hotels and hostels,
09:34
but to wait and hope.
09:37
How are you feeling? Are you able to sleep?
09:39
I'm on medication, antidepressants and anti-anxiety.
09:42
Without those,
09:44
I wouldn't have that baseline of normality.
09:49
And really, it's not healthy to be living in this environment.
09:54
And it certainly isn't healthy for your child to witness a parent
10:00
who’s supposed to keep her safe and secure,
10:04
is now lacking in self-confidence and motivation.
10:10
Oh my God.
10:13
There's always that knot in your stomach.
10:16
That never leaves you.
10:19
You know, the people in reception know you're homeless.
10:23
And you're wondering how they perceive you.
10:26
Go on, go for a paddle Babs!
10:30
Ew, Mammy touched me, Mammy cooties!
10:34
You do feel that bit of stigma that is attached with that word 'homeless'.
10:39
You automatically assume
10:41
a rough sleeper, a down and out,
10:44
someone who may be addicted to drugs or alcohol or gambling.
10:48
You don't expect it to be just normal people.
10:52
Okie dokie, Babs.
11:02
You alright?
11:04
It’ll be fine, don’t get upset.
11:08
We’ll be grand.
11:13
The homeless charity Focus Ireland has been helping Nuala and Laura
11:17
since they were first made homeless.
11:19
They've put them on a shortlist of families to be considered for a flat which is being offered
11:23
exclusively to HAP tenants.
11:25
This is the problem I had last week trying to bloody locate it.
11:29
This is the second time the charity has put them forward for a flat in this block,
11:33
they missed out on the last one.
11:35
So do we have to park over here? Oh, is he looking for it?
11:38
Oh God, could be.
11:40
That’s, he was here last week with her!
11:43
So we’re all early.
11:44
We’re not good enough, obviously.
11:47
Come on Babs, let’s boogie baby.
11:49
Here we go again.
11:54
Looks nice.
11:55
It's a bigger block.
11:57
Like you're afraid to get your hopes up
12:02
but I suppose we have to have some sort of hope.
12:06
So fingers crossed.
12:09
Can I get back in the car?
12:11
'Can I get back in the car!'
12:12
I'm cold!
12:13
Get back in the car. There you go.
12:15
Thank you.
12:20
Just somewhere to call home,
12:24
somewhere you can cook and wash.
12:34
Yeah, hopefully.
12:37
Hopefully. [~DETAIL_TEXT] => 00:14
Laura, do you know where the bag with the antibiotics is?
00:17
Oh, here.
00:22
That’s one antibiotic.
00:27
Don’t know where the room key is.
00:31
Nuala and her daughter Laura are homeless.
00:34
For the last two weeks,
00:35
this hotel room has been their home.
00:38
I can never find this.
00:41
There is no normality.
00:45
It's the not knowing, the uncertainty,
00:47
the insecurity, despair.
00:50
What is going to become of you.
00:52
Then failure.
00:54
Inadequate parent.
00:56
And it just spirals out of control.
01:01
Getting up in the morning, getting ready,
01:06
that in itself you have to deem as an achievement
01:09
and sort of say, 'OK, well, you've done it today.'
01:15
More than 9.700 people across Ireland are living like this,
01:19
in emergency accommodation.
01:27
Now my daughter goes to college,
01:30
I make a point of getting up and dropping her in
01:33
because I would hate to think what I would become if I didn't have that focus.
01:39
Right, see you at two-ish.
01:42
Love you lots, take care.
01:45
Nuala’s landlord was forced to sell by his creditors,
01:47
an increasingly common situation in Ireland following the financial crisis.
01:52
She was told with only three months' notice to find a new place to live.
01:57
OK, the U Store is here on the left,
01:59
that’s where all our belongings are stored
02:02
until we finally get somewhere to call home.
02:06
In reality, it slaps you in the face.
02:11
This was our life, this was our home.
02:13
And now we have neither.
02:16
This one here.
02:22
There’s something in the letterbox.
02:27
Yep.
02:29
And there’s no one in it … we could have been still there.
02:38
Oh my God.
02:44
There’s an envelope in there, I hope it’s not Laura’s bank account stuff.
02:49
How long were you living here?
02:51
Nine and a half years. Strange that I can't go in.
02:56
I was sort of half expecting to see blinds down, for sale sign up.
03:01
But no, it’s lying empty.
03:05
You know, gosh.
03:06
Are you angry?
03:08
No, you do get past that stage.
03:11
You just become, I suppose, numb.
03:14
And just go ... what could have been, what might have been.
03:17
You know, there was no need for me to be out so soon.
03:22
So I don't know what the delay is in putting it up for sale,
03:25
but I'm not angry.
03:28
When they first registered as homeless six weeks ago,
03:31
the council placed Nuala and Laura in various hostels on a night by night basis.
03:37
Here we go.
03:40
Thank you for calling Dublin city council’s self-accommodation line for hotel bookings.
03:45
Please hold. Thank you.
03:48
Their hotel placement is more secure, but Nuala has to call every two weeks,
03:52
to reapply for their room.
03:54
Your current position in the queue is seven.
03:59
Seven?
04:08
Your current position in the queue is seven.
04:11
Could be on seven for 20 minutes!
04:16
Hello.
04:17
Yeah, that booking has been confirmed there for you, OK?
04:22
Happy days, thank you so much.
04:24
No problem.
04:24
Have a good day, bye.
04:29
Done, two weeks.
04:31
Yeah, thumbs up!
04:33
I'd rather have a home!
04:41
There is a chronic shortage of social housing in Ireland.
04:44
Governments just haven't been building council houses.
04:48
As an alternative,
04:49
authorities offer a housing assisted payment scheme called HAP,
04:53
under which councils pay rent to private landlords.
04:57
Nuala qualifies for HAP but under the terms of the scheme, it's her responsibility
05:02
to find a home to rent on the open market.
05:04
And in Ireland today,
05:05
those are few and far between.
05:09
Every day she goes to the library to search for properties and apply for viewings.
05:14
It’s a nightmare.
05:15
It's an absolute nightmare.
05:18
All you want is just that one person to say,
05:21
'I'm going to give these two girls a chance.'
05:25
Would you have a computer free?
05:26
Just over there, number C4.
05:29
C4. Great, thank you so much.
05:31
She sends out at least five applications a day.
05:35
But in five months,
05:36
she's had no luck.
05:38
Rental properties are so in demand that few even make it to a public viewing.
05:42
Your confidence takes a battering every single time.
05:46
And there's only so many times you can be knocked down and you can’t get back up.
05:51
But if you don't apply, you won’t know.
06:03
Roger Berkeley has been an estate agent in Dublin for 40 years.
06:08
I have never seen it this chronic for tenants in how difficult it is to find a home.
06:15
I’ve never seen it as it is now.
06:18
Even though the rents have gone up, they’re sky rocketing,
06:22
rents that would have been €1,200 a month five years ago,
06:25
they’re now over €2,000 a month.
06:27
What would you say are the causes of this current crisis?
06:31
Lack of supply of houses or properties or apartments
06:36
for the increasing number of tenants that are coming to the market.
06:40
We’re coming up to a house in Palmerstown that we recently let.
06:45
So this house here, was this like a exemplary case of how the rental market works at the moment?
06:50
Homeless HAP?
06:51
Yeah, and that was a house that went for €2,000 a month.
06:54
This is the one thing about homeless HAP,
06:56
you can have last year’s professionals are this year's homeless HAP sometimes.
07:03
It's like putting a Band-Aid on an open wound,
07:05
it's shovelling money at a problem, it's not solving the problem.
07:08
The problem is going to be solved
07:09
by more housing being available for tenants, I think.
07:14
A succession of Irish governments has relied on private developers to construct the country's social housing,
07:20
but the private sector has failed to deliver.
07:24
Are you on a waiting list for a council house?
07:27
I am. I've been on it now
07:31
I would say seven years
07:33
and I'm listed in around the 600 mark.
07:41
So possibly another six or more years.
07:48
Nuala is one of more than 70,000 people on a waiting list for a council house.
07:53

today's luxury is almost undefinable
00:05
first of course you're met and greeted
00:08
by some incredible flowers
00:12
we have a dining room here so this room
00:16
is set at the moment so you see you can
00:19
have a lovely dinner in here it's even a
00:24
TV hidden in the wall for those who have
00:27
the bad habit of watching TV while it's
00:29
dining so you have a large sitting area
00:31
here you have some beautiful little
00:34
pieces and sculptures the fireplace
00:38
luxury to our guests is what makes them
00:43
feel good and makes them feel better and
00:46
gives them a satisfaction in that moment
00:49
little dining area where you can maybe
00:52
have your breakfast or you can just have
00:53
a drink we have of course a wonderful
00:56
bar here for for your drinks I mean
01:00
there's a beautiful cognac available of
01:03
course there should always be champagne
01:05
there is a wine fridge only for this
01:08
suite so part of our Royal Suite is of
01:10
course also for those who need to work
01:13
that there is an office so you have a
01:15
nice big desk where you can sign
01:21
important contracts you have three TV
01:24
screens right in front of you where you
01:26
can keep up with what's going on in the
01:30
stock markets or the news fabulous
01:35
penthouses and fabulous houses of course
01:37
have a have an upper floor so we can go
01:39
up to the floor above so this is the
01:45
master bathroom of the penthouse then
01:49
this bathtub I mean it's almost the size
01:53
of a little plunge pool so it's it's
01:56
it's it's really beautiful and large so
01:58
plenty of space for four to
02:09
so you have these Mary Papa muse of the
02:14
roofs of London
02:19
and I just think that's amazing when you
02:22
see this I mean look you have it or at
02:24
your doorstep
02:27
what kind of price can this command so
02:31
the publish grade for this particular
02:33
penthouse is 20,000 pounds per lives we
02:36
had one client stay in here for six
02:38
months
02:38
I suppose a lot of your guests aren't
02:42
approaching a stay with fear about how
02:45
much it costs I would hope not
02:48
if you had 20,000 pounds why would you
02:52
choose to spend it on a night in a
02:55
penthouse it's a choice that they have
02:58
made you know they get something they
03:00
need and they have chosen to make their
03:03
stay in London the nicest and best stay
03:06
and you know you know because right next
03:08
door there was an option that wasn't
03:10
20,000 pounds that was probably 450
03:12
pounds but it has its limitations
03:15
you know the 250 square meter suddenly
03:18
turned into 45 and it's it's it's it's

this bathtub I mean it's almost the size
01:53
of a little plunge pool so it's it's
01:56
it's it's really beautiful and large so
01:58
plenty of space for four to
02:09
so you have these Mary Papa muse of the
02:14
roofs of London
02:19
and I just think that's amazing when you
02:22
see this I mean look you have it or at
02:24
your doorstep
02:27
what kind of price can this command so
02:31
the publish grade for this particular
02:33
penthouse is 20,000 pounds per lives we
02:36
had one client stay in here for six
02:38
months
02:38
I suppose a lot of your guests aren't
02:42
approaching a stay with fear about how
02:45
much it costs I would hope not
02:48
if you had 20,000 pounds why would you
02:52
choose to spend it on a night in a
02:55
penthouse it's a choice that they have
02:58
made you know they get something they
03:00
need and they have chosen to make their
03:03
stay in London the nicest and best stay
03:06
and you know you know because right next
03:08
door there was an option that wasn't
03:10
20,000 pounds that was probably 450
03:12
pounds but it has its limitations
03:15
you know the 250 square meter suddenly
03:18
turned into 45 and it's it's it's it's
03:21
just it's a different experience [LANG_DIR] => / [~LANG_DIR] => / [CODE] => why-this-london-hotel-costs-20-000-a-night-to-stay-in-bbc [~CODE] => why-this-london-hotel-costs-20-000-a-night-to-stay-in-bbc [EXTERNAL_ID] => 3069 [~EXTERNAL_ID] => 3069 [IBLOCK_SECTION_ID] => [~IBLOCK_SECTION_ID] => [IBLOCK_TYPE_ID] => clubs [~IBLOCK_TYPE_ID] => clubs [IBLOCK_ID] => 5 [~IBLOCK_ID] => 5 [IBLOCK_CODE] => video [~IBLOCK_CODE] => video [IBLOCK_EXTERNAL_ID] => [~IBLOCK_EXTERNAL_ID] => [LID] => s1 [~LID] => s1 [DETAIL_TEXT_TYPE] => html [~DETAIL_TEXT_TYPE] => html [PREVIEW_TEXT] => today's luxury is almost undefinable first of course you're met and greeted by some incredible flowers... ) ) ) )

Video subtitles: Tips for Lisbon, Portugal

00:00
what's going on YouTube this is Ledo
00:01
Diaz with quick trips and tips and I'm
00:04
going to give you some quick tips for a
00:05
quick trip to Lisbon Portugal alright so
00:08
the first thing I wanna talk about is
00:09
transportation to and from the airport
00:10
to the city center of Lisbon I know
00:13
that's one of the biggest worries that
00:15
people have is getting you know how to
00:16
get to the city centre so get the metro
00:18
the metro is right there at the airport
00:21
so right when you leave arrivals you
00:23
could take a right and there's some
00:25
kiosks where you get your ticket and
00:27
you're going to take the red line to the
00:29
Green Line and then different depending
00:31
on where you really want to end up
00:33
there's various stops in the Green Line
00:36
but like the last three it's like right
00:37
there in the city centre of of Lisbon
00:40
yes you could take a taxi but it's gonna
00:41
cost you anywhere from 10 to 15 euros
00:43
and 120 per per piece of luggage so
00:47
definitely take my recommendation take
00:49
the metros ease ease right there at the
00:50
airport it's a straight shot would be in
00:52
a city centre of Lisbon in 30 minutes
00:53
alright so where to stay I recommend
00:56
stayin in the old town um you can stay
00:59
in bother you I thought you are into the
01:01
party scene because you'll be right in
01:02
the middle of it but Lisbon is actually
01:04
kind of small so you could walk
01:05
everywhere and taking a tuk-tuk um or
01:09
taxi anywhere in in bar you'll get to
01:12
any location pretty fast and pretty
01:13
cheap the average pricing for a hostel
01:16
in Lisbon is anywhere from 30 to 80
01:18
euros per night ours was cheaper than
01:21
that I see never looks that nuts an area
01:24
that has a lot of shops restaurants bars
01:26
and who a boost the arch which is pretty
01:29
famous on landmark that you're going to
01:32
probably go and take a picture in front
01:33
of and it's right next to the water as
01:35
well so I recommend realistic because
01:38
you're really close to everything you
01:39
close to the water if you want to go for
01:40
a run in the morning we did it's awesome
01:42
but anywhere in Lisbon you really can
01:44
not going to go wrong and if you in the
01:47
middle this party scene body art though
01:49
is the place to be
01:50
so Lisbon has awesome food and these are
01:53
the foods that I tried so I'm going to
01:56
recommend and obviously if you are from
01:58
Lisbon and you're Portuguese go ahead
02:00
and write down below what your
02:01
recommendations are but this is what I
02:03
tried and this is what I recommend plus
02:05
the NASA which is a custard tart and
02:07
you'll find them everywhere um they're
02:09
pretty cheap I think we got some for
02:12
like one year
02:13
each you know I cannot vary depending
02:15
the area rap but they're everywhere I
02:17
definitely try you probably tried
02:18
various times they're delicious peedee
02:21
peedee chicken and bacalao is is
02:24
basically salted cod and not only is the
02:27
epochal Korsak is actually I grew up
02:28
eating it because I'm Puerto Rican so my
02:30
parents used to make pocket all the time
02:32
so it was kind of cool realizing that
02:35
it's such a popular food to try in
02:38
Portugal and it's and it's everywhere
02:40
sausages they're really um known for the
02:42
sausage like chorizo but they have a lot
02:44
of various kinds and the hostel that I
02:46
stayed and I actually had a tap is night
02:48
where they served us a whole bunch of
02:49
different sausages made in Portugal and
02:51
is really good so definitely try some
02:52
sausages and seafood in general great
02:55
seafood you know you're right by the
02:56
water you're right you know you're by
02:58
the ocean so seafood in general is
03:01
delicious and um in Lisbon one of the
03:04
best places to get that seafood is
03:05
severe hadiyyah-lah Mito and it's very
03:09
famous spot now because Anthony Bourdain
03:11
went to go visit a names on the show so
03:13
now it's like a huge tourist hotspot but
03:16
it's worth the way we waited I think
03:18
like two hours outside but it was
03:20
definitely worth it it is a little
03:21
pricey um but it is definitely worth it
03:25
amazing amazing food at that restaurant
03:28
wines in general really cheap great wine
03:31
in Lisbon um but they're known for their
03:33
port wine on the gene Vita Jing Zhi Jing
03:37
Zhi ha um cherry wine and it's a sherry
03:42
wine that's really really strong not
03:44
everybody likes it but definitely try it
03:46
just to because you might love it very
03:48
strong that's one of them were really
03:50
popular drinks there and we know badly
03:53
um you know vendors basically translated
03:55
a green wine and it is it's like the
03:57
wine that's not really ready to drink
04:02
it's like saying like eating a banana
04:04
before it's ripe Exopolitics give an
04:07
example so with us then the average cost
04:10
of hospitals again is 30 to 80 euros
04:13
food if you get a coffee it's one to two
04:15
euros the gingy ha is anywhere from 150
04:21
to two euros
04:22
water is one year old cheap restaurants
04:25
will be about
04:27
- eight euros per person medium-grade
04:30
will be 8 to 15 and high 1565 and plus
04:34
and depending on the onion budget you
04:36
know you could make it as cheap and as
04:38
expensive as you want and I forgot to
04:40
mention one of the coolest things about
04:42
when you're walking around in Lisbon and
04:44
sightseeing is that their food like
04:47
their street food is healthy you have
04:51
fruit carts so you can get like a cup of
04:54
fruit a very of like pineapple with
04:57
grave's watermelon and strawberries I
05:00
kind of dig the fact that there's a lot
05:03
of healthy eats out in the streets and
05:05
there's a lot of juice bars so yeah
05:07
that's that's pretty cool hi so things
05:09
to do you can get on a hop-on hop-off
05:11
tour bus there for 20 euros and you let
05:13
the ticket will last you 48 hours if you
05:15
go online right now so you can say 24
05:16
hours but if you talk to the person if
05:19
you talk to the one of the agents in
05:20
person will say that it's for 48 hours
05:22
so 20 euros for 48 hours and it's a
05:24
hop-on hop-off tour bus that has two
05:27
three lines and twenty-year-olds
05:30
includes two lines a red line and the
05:32
blue line to see most of the sights on
05:35
why should we mow pretty much all the
05:37
sights on on the hop-on hop-off tour bus
05:40
now there's a lot of different ways to
05:43
tour Lisbon
05:44
they have these tuk tuks that came from
05:46
Thailand and these like little
05:49
three-wheeled motor cars that fit like -
05:51
2 to 3 people so when it comes to what
05:53
to do this a lot to do and get in on a
05:56
hop-on hop-off tour bus you're going to
05:58
do most of those things so I'm not going
05:59
to list them list them out you can go on
06:02
the hop on hop off tour hop on hop off
06:05
tour bus website and it'll give you a
06:07
list of all the little stops that'll
06:10
that'll do if you have any
06:12
recommendations on things to do is
06:14
specifically that are probably not on a
06:16
hop-on hop-off tour bus or on a tuk tuk
06:18
tour bus or whatever anything like that
06:20
go ahead and write them down below and
06:21
it'll be greatly appreciated tuk-tuk can
06:24
give you a tour but there are a lot
06:27
pricier um you can use them as a taxi
06:29
but you could but they also provide
06:32
tours they wanted to charge us like 60
06:34
or 80 euros for like four hour three
06:36
hours there's also
06:38
like segways that we saw people like in
06:40
these go-karts and you know there's bike
06:43
toys that you could ran these electric
06:45
bikes so there's a lot of different ways
06:47
to tour lisbon itself not just bus tours
06:50
and like I said using the tuk-tuk we
06:52
could you could actually use it as a
06:53
taxi because there's been a being so um
06:57
having so many hills walking up and down
07:00
those hills will be very tired there's a
07:02
lot of things to see and do in Lisbon I
07:04
recommend seeing all the sights my
07:07
favorites were the a-level or Santa who
07:10
stats which is this elevator that's been
07:12
there since 1902
07:15
so definitely my thing but it you pay
07:17
five sixty to go all the way up and you
07:21
have a 360 view of the entire city
07:28
Lisbon has a bunch of rooftop Bars they
07:31
have beautiful views of the city so
07:32
definitely check out a rooftop bar I'm
07:35
not going to recommend every any
07:37
specific one because there's so many
07:39
just make sure that you have it on your
07:41
list to do that all right and lastly our
07:43
last thing I'm going to recommend is
07:45
that you take a nap um the nightlife in
07:49
Lisbon is insane it's amazing but it's
07:53
long hours so also that come from the US
07:56
we're not used to that our place is
07:58
closed anywhere from 2 to 3 a.m. so when
08:02
you go out and Lisbon some places won't
08:04
even open until 1:00 so I recommend
08:08
taking a nap during the day um you know
08:11
lower like 6:00 to 8:00 get have a late
08:13
dinner and then that way you can last
08:14
the night there's awesome awesome bars
08:17
and restaurants try to avoid lux because
08:21
a racist um so yeah screw you lux for
08:24
not letting us in and trying to charge
08:25
us 240 euros per person because we were
08:28
not unfortunately and that's pretty much
08:31
stuff so I usually don't say anything
08:33
negative about any place but lux
08:36
so those are my quick tips for a quick
08:38
trip to Lisbon I hope you liked the
