How to Explore the World Virtually in 2021



The Corona-Virus pandemic has changed how we live and interact with other people. Global lockdowns have seen people stay indoors, and there is no end in sight. However, this does not mean we cannot enjoy the things we used to do, albeit virtually. Here are some things you can do from the comfort of your living room sofa. Virtual travel is here to stay while we wait and see how the Covid situation pans out.

How to Explore the World

You can visit any place on earth virtually. It is not the same as going there in person, but it is still as exciting and costs you nothing!

● Virtual Tours

You can travel the world via virtual reality (VR) tours in 360-degree videos. You can take a virtual trip to Japan, explore the Northern Island coasts, take a hike on the Great Wall of China, take a trip to view Chile's natural wonders, tour World Heritage Sites, and so much more.

● Join Museum Tours

Many Museums are giving their visitors virtual tours, and you can visit most museums for their virtual Tours. The British Museum was already a step ahead with the launch of Hold the World experience in 2018.

Other tours include The Vatican City’s Sistine Chapel, the Acropolis Museum in Athens, the State Hermitage Museum- St Petersburg, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Grammy Museum, and many others. You can also go to Google Arts and take virtual tours. Google Arts & Culture has collaborated with more than 2,500 museums and galleries globally to bring the Museum experience to
your living room.

● Stream Travel Programs

Streaming travel programs via the internet is another way to visit any place on earth. With fantastic travel programs on Amazon, Netflix, or Hulu, you can take virtual trips that span Singapore’s hawker markets, Mexican markets, the streets of Hong Kong, etc.

Look for different live streaming services that allow you to travel the world without leaving your home.

● Virtual Cruises

● Virtual Safaris

You can take African Virtual safaris to game reserves in Africa. andBeyond, a luxury tour operator, has been running a live stream from game reserves in South Africa.
