Video: Time lapse Ho Chi Minh City will make you want to move there

Ho Chi Minh City

Most of us will never go to Vietnam. For one there's barely space there for its residents, let alone the rest of the planet's population. It's also chuffing expensive to get there. So we have to be indebted to Rob Whitworth, snapper extraordinaire.

You see, he balanced himself from many tall buildings to capture Ho Chi Minh City's diverse, wobbly and mad motoring culture.
Whitworth took over 10,000 images to create this magical video. It's quite incredible to see a city living and breathing in such a way via a small, letterbox sized portal on your computer. Especially as it looks as though all the vehicles are toys...

Whitworth commented: "Everyone who has visited Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam knows part of the magic (love it or hate it) is in the traffic. Ever since I first set foot in HCMC I have been captivated by the cities [sic] energy. Saigon is a city on the move unlike anything I have experienced before which I wanted to capture and share."

Enjoy the video.
