Have you ever imagined that one day you would explore new places thanks to Virtual Reality?
It may sound like a sci-fi movie but it is becoming true! At Imagine Belgium we believe that the future of tourism is now and that VR is a great way to boost tourism.
Here are 5 reasons why virtual reality is the future of tourism!
Indeed, virtual reality helps us to boost the tourism sector especially in times of covid-19 when people had to restrain their holidays plans.
It does not mean that VR will completely replace our travel experiences, it only means that it gives new opportunities and enhances the tourism sector. It can even renew the interest of visitors for historical places abandoned by the public.
In fact, new technologies such as VR are a key tool to offer visitors sensational experiences while promoting tourism but also culture and digital innovation all at once! What else would you want?
Unless you are a bird, you probably don’t know what it feels to fly and get closer to some of the greatest places in the world.
Virtual reality gives you the possibility to see those places like never before. What makes VR so incredible is that you can virtually FLY!
It is now possible to feel like you are flying over the most famous cities in the world. VR is therefore a unique way to discover your country from the sky, enjoying fantastic panoramas and getting sensations you could not experience otherwise.
Not only you can fly with VR, you can also go from one place to another in a second! In a few minutes, you can get a taste of a place, a city or even an entire country.
You can even go back in time and spend some time in the past (sure Marty McFly from Back to the Future wouldn’t believe it).
VR is indeed a unique way to see the world, but it is also an exclusive way to access places you could not reach in real life. For example, Flyview360 in Paris opens the doors of the Cathedral Notre-Dame which is currently closed to the public since the dramatic fire devastated the building last year.
As you can see, the more time goes by, the more we can see the advantages of developing virtual reality alternatives in the tourism sector.
Another advantage with virtual reality is that the whole family can enjoy a fantastic experience! We know how difficult it can be to find a good activity that makes the young and old happy.
The good thing with virtual reality is that it is super entertaining. It is actually a success in the gaming sector as we can see with the Zero Latency VR games.
When you apply virtual reality to the tourism sector, it becomes an amazing way to entertain your little tribe while discovering your holiday location or even your own place!
In fact, virtual reality can also be considered as a way to prevent mass-tourism and help avoiding overcrowded areas. We all know how detrimental mass-tourism can be in many aspects.
VR offers the possibility to visit a tourist site while preserving the natural and historical heritage of the area. We told you, virtual reality is definitely part of the future of tourism!
