From the view out of its taxi cabs, to the paths of its ferries, from the top of its skyscrapers, to the kitchens of its tiniest restaurants. This is Shanghai, all in one timelapse.

This timelapse video, appropriately titled "This Is Shanghai," was done by city expert JT Singh and Rob Whitworth, who also did the frankly outstanding timelapse of Ho Chi Minh City back in 2011.

It's a little dizzying, but then it should be if it is going to loop through the lives of over 23 million people in a bit over two minutes.

Whitworth also sent us this picture of the kit used to make the short film. Fantastic.
