Experience Virtual Travel From Your Home
Ever since the Coronavirus pandemic hit, most of us didn’t have the chance to go travel or go on a vacation to our desired places. It must be frustrating for them, especially for those who have been longing for it. Imagine planning a whole trip for so long and just like that, it was destroyed by the virus outbreak. But not to worry. With the technologies nowadays, you can experience a virtual vacation, from your home! The technologies used such as CGIs are made from a high-performance computer system called render farm. Render farm blender might have been used in producing these high techs CGIs, so you do not have to worry about what you will be experiencing.
Virtual travel or vacation provides a photo and video sequence that simulates an existent location. You will be able to find your way about the venue on your own. Virtual travel probably does not sound appealing or enough for some people. But for those who have been wanting to go for a vacation, they most probably would be interested in it. But first, before doing so you have to purchase Virtual Reality (VR) headsets before being able to do so.

Do not worry about getting cold or not having a fur coat at home. You can now experience visiting Antarctica just by standing in your living room. Almost all cold places have these cute animals; penguins! Even though you are unable to touch them, just by looking at them would give you serotonins, not to mention when you are really in Antarctica. It is like a practice session before flying over there for real. Apart from that, you will be witnessing the seals and the whales too. The scenery there is mesmerizing and you have to visit the mountains there, especially the famous Vinson Massif. It would be a memorable experience for you and you might want to visit Antarctica again, but at that time, the real Antarctica. Don’t forget to visit Ross Island and Peter I Island for a truly Antarctican experience.
- The Great Wall of China
One of the seven wonders of the world. With an overall length of 21,196 kilometres, you might get enough of it because of the mesmerizing view. The Great Wall of China is a system of fortifications designed to protect ancient Chinese kingdoms and Imperial China from numerous nomadic populations from the Eurasian Steppe. Other than hiking there, you can visit one of the sections called The Mutianyu. This section is child friendly and you are able to hike and sightseeing here. For those whose intentions are mere to hike, you can try out Jinshanling. It is 154 kilometres long and is considered the most beautiful section of the Great Wall.
The first vision that would pop out to your mind must be the clear and clean water of Maldives. When you see the crystal clear water, you might instantly think of jumping into the beach as you see the sea creatures. Other than their beautiful beaches, most tourists would visit Malé and Addu Atoll. Well if you prefer swimming and diving, you can go to Lhaviyani Atoll. Imagine swimming in your living room with your VR set…
- Roman Colosseum, Italy
This is also one of the greatest seven wonders of the world. If you are a fan of the Gladiator movie, you must recall the epic fighting scenes in the Colosseum. The Colosseum was used as an arena for entertainment for 390 years in real life. More than 400,000 people and 1 million animals were killed inside the Colosseum at that time. On AirPano, you can digitally tour the real Colosseum. Standing still in the city of Rome for 1942 years, it is worth visiting. Doesn’t matter if it’s an online tour or not, the experience and knowledge gained from it are totally worth it.
Even though these are not as good as a real vacation, they are good enough to mend your broken heart from the failed vacation plans. Well, at least you have a gist of how it would be if you get to go to the mentioned places yourself. You can enjoy these with your family members and create some memories with them. Swimming in the living room sounds fun..and funny though. Since most borders are opened now, it is time to enjoy the trip you have been waiting for!
