'Saigon Sail' Time Lapse Video Shows Summer In Ho Chi Minh City

Three months of work paid off for videographer Pierre Ogeron.

The result of his labor is a stirring, colorful portrait of Vietnam's largest city, Ho Chi Minh City, during summer. Tourists bustle through the former capital's squares and restaurants, fireworks crackle in the distance, and the skyscrapers glow neon against the night sky.

The video is called "Saigon Sail," a combination of Ho Chi Minh's former name ("Saigon") and the song Ogeron used as a bed for his masterpiece ("Sail," by Los Angeles rockers Awolnation.)

Watch the time-lapse in the video above.
