[Video] Sleek Travelogue Highlights Thrilling Side of Ha Long Bay and Hanoi

This sleek, well-edited travelogue by filmmaker Alex Schiller will take you on a thrilling ride around Ha Long Bay and Hanoi.

The montage, titled "Hungry in Hanoi", sets off on an ominous note with lugubrious footage of a stormy day in Ha Long Bay. However, as the video goes on and the music picks up, viewers are treated to a fast-paced virtual tour of nightlife in Hanoi that’s chock-full of food porn, bright street lights and nhậu sessions.

A particularly fascinating shot in the video is a hyperlapse taken on the capital’s railway track. The first-person point of view allows the audience to immerse seamlessly in the travel experience.

Schiller made full use of sharp transitions to pack as much scenery of the two localities in the short clip as possible, resulting in an exciting, if not slightly dizzying, viewing experience.

Have a look at the sleek video below:
