If you've ever been to an Asia city, then you must watch the Rob Whitworth Ho Chi Minh City video done in time-lapse. Every backpacker or expat wants to be able to describe the frenetic chaos that Asian cities have to their friends and families, though try as they might, one can rarely do the sight justice. This young artist has succeeded in putting a thousand words into one video -- or rather, thousands of images.

The video focuses heavily on the city's roundabout. You see motorists weaving dangerously into traffic, sometimes completely perpendicular to oncoming traffic. What's wonderful about the Rob Whitworth Ho Chi Minh video is that although it reveals the absolute disorder in the streets, it displays a sort of beauty as well. Everything is always moving, everyone is constantly bustling -- and while the driving seems insane, it works in bizarre harmony.
