The Best Virtual Trips During The Coronavirus

Due to the current corona virus, it seems that travel and holidays are no longer possible for many people. Fortunately, it is possible to go to new places in virtual reality. And all you need for this is VR glasses and an internet connection. In this article we make a selection of the best VR travel experiences so that you can enjoy the most beautiful places even during the total lockdown.

The virtual trips can be divided into passive and ineractive visits. For example, some museums provide a virtual tour in the form of a video or Google Maps application, but there are also museums that have developed a complete virtual game. The virtual tours can generally be viewed on mobile or standalone VR glasses (for example the Oculus Go), while the interactive museum applications require PC VR glasses (such as the HTC Vive Cosmos).

Louvre Museum, Paris (Mobile VR / Oculus Go)

The Louvre, the world's largest art and antiques museum, was forced to close when Paris locked up. And although you can no longer physically wander through the beautiful building, it is possible to get a complete virtual tour. All the most beautiful pieces from the collection are included in this, and the best thing is; you don't even have to queue for it!
