The past few years have seen an explosion in "hyperlapse" films, allowing for amazingly smooth, beautiful first-person tours of cities and countries you might never be able to visit. Here are some of the best online right now.

From #23, Thailand, the land of amazing color saturation.

I've organized these alphabetically by country, and a few of them have more than one video per city (especially Paris). Obviously, there's a whole lot more world than appears on this list. If people like this, I'll try and expand it. There's no ranking here, just scroll around and enjoy the trip.

1. Brisbane, Australia

2. Melbourne, Australia

3. Sydney, Australia
