From Morocco in HD and Manhattan after dark, to rush hour in Saigon and sweeping views of Earth from outer space, here be a frighteningly fine selection of our favourite Time-Lapse Travel Videos.

They say that if you’ve seen one of these “speedy-slow-motion” videos, you’ve seen them all. We think “they” need a holiday and should get out more!

This small but exquisite collection of stunning time-lapse travel videos were put together for the sole purpose of unleashing those severely repressed travel urges. Highlights include excruciatingly beautiful sights, painfully irresistible sounds and horribly hypnotic cityscapes, so be very careful where you click!
