What Rush Hour In 12 Different Countries Looks Like

The phrase ’’rush hour’’ immediately brings to mind thoughts of large masses of people and a huge congestion of cars. Everyone’s in a hurry: one guy needs to have dinner, another lady has a business meeting, a happy couple over there is just walking home. It doesn’t matter where you live; you’ll find rush hour in every country in the world.

We here at Chaostrophic thought it’d be interesting to collect photos depicting various cities of the world during the busiest hours of the day. Some of the contrasts are truly fascinating!
