You can now experience the joy of travelling the world, without having to leave your house. Gear up for travelling virtually and beating the corona-quarantine in style, with our tried and tested suggestions out there. At least traveling virtually is something which we would love to explore in the mean time to soothe our travel souls. Moving forward with this notion, four of the top travel destinations are now offering virtual tours that too for free. Here’re the 4 travel destinations which you can explore virtually:
- Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World Resort, USA:
The destination which your kids gonna surely love to explore and this will make them drool. Beginning lockdown, one can now explore Disney Parks like never before – right from their phone or computer – on Google Street View. Disney has just launched a series of 360-degree panoramas featuring Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World Resort locations everyone would want to check out to help plan your next vacation when everything is sorted. To create the 360-degree imagery at Disney Parks, Google used Street View Trekker, a wearable backpack with a camera system on top. The Trekker is worn by an operator and is moved through walkways and structures, automatically gathering images. Imagery is then stitched together to create the 360-degree panoramas you can see today. This sounds very exciting for all of us at India who have always thought of the Disneyland character in their dreams and had wished to visit sometime during their lifetime. Take a peek:
