Virtual reality is quickly becoming one of the most talked about topics in tech these days. It has been used to create immersive experiences for gaming and entertainment, but now it’s time for VR to go mainstream in other industries as well. In this post, we’ll take a look at how 360 virtual reality is revolutionizing the tourism, travel and hospitality industry by making it easier than ever before for people to explore their next vacation or business trip on their fingertips and make much more informed decisions! It is best if you experience this technology of 360 virtual reality tours first before I go further. Go on a virtual trip to Paris.

In this article, I will be writing about the use of virtual reality in tourism, travel and hospitality. There are a lot of ways that 360 video and VR is being used to enhance travel experience. One way could be by using it as an educational or marketing tool for travelers before their trip. They can see what they’re going to do when they get there so they know what to expect. It can inject some enthusiasm and excitement into the planned trip or vacation.

The following sections list some different ways that VR technology has been implemented in destination marketing.

  1. VR tours of hotels available through mobile devices, computers or VR Headsets: If you are searching for lodging and have a smartphone, there are now many ways to explore the rooms and different amenities by using 360-degree video. Below is an example showing the Honeymoon Suite of Oldeani Mountain Lodge.

2. Tourism companies that offer VR headsets in their offices: Tourism agencies have taken advantage of this technology to help with sales. They can provide potential customers with a virtual tour of a planned trip during the booking process. Below is a virtual tour of Jiuzhaigo National Park.

3. Virtual tours available through the hotel concierge: This is a way to make it easy for people who are already on vacation to get a virtual tour of some attractions or restaurants in the neighbourhood area.

-Virtual Reality tours can have guided audio explanations to give further explanation about a given place. For instance, the following virtual tour of the North Pole. In a way, it transforms into a learning tool.


So far, there is no way VR could replace actual traveling. However, it’s becoming an important part of the tourism industry because it helps with anxiety and escapism that many travelers experience. I’m excited to see how it will keep evolving as the travel industry continues to change. Here at Views4D, we have worked on over 150 virtua reality tour projects for various brands in the tourism, travel and hospitality sector.
