Saigon traffic time lapse

Published by at 12:38 am under Transport


If you’ve ever been to Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam, chances are the traffic left an indelible mark on your memories of the place. For British photographer Rob Whitworth, a memory wasn’t quite enough and through the use of more than 10,000 RAW images he captured this chaotic beauty in his latest work, Traffic in Frenetic HCMC.

Slow day on the roads.

Says Whitworth: “Ever since I first set foot in HCMC I have been captivated by the city’s energy; the relentless construction and pace of change. Saigon is a city on the move unlike anything I have experienced before which I wanted to capture and share.”

We’ve covered the art of motorcycling in Saigon, but for those yet to experience it, this stunning video is a must-see primer. Whitworth says his next project will be Hoi An — we look forward to what we imagine will be a more a far more sedate viewing experience.
