[Video] Vietnam's Hectic Energy Set to a Funky Soundtrack

Vietnam is a country that’s always on the move.

Herds of bikes dashing along winding urban streets; nimble street vendors swiftly serving up street snacks as if by instinct; and strips of narrow waterways in the Mekong Delta chock-full of current-churning boats — these are some thrilling shots in Chris Marley’s fast-paced travelogue of his time in Vietnam.

Set to the funky tunes of Action Bronson’s song ‘City Boy Blues,’ Marley’s video revels in Vietnam’s dynamic street actions and constant movement, a refreshing change from common tourism clichés.
