Try These Virtual Travel Journeys For Culture, Nature And Sightseeing


As the social distancing measures around COVID-19 halt travel around the world, companies, destinations, conservation organizations, zoos and museums are finding ways to bring travel and all of its wonders right into people’s homes.

Our virtual age means that we can continue experiencing new destinations, learning about other cultures and discovering incredible attractions without leaving our houses—which is a welcome escape from the fact that our options for leaving the house are so limited.
While it’s hard to beat the real thing, for now we can satisfy our wanderlust (and curb our restlessness) with some of these online journeys.
