There is so much to see and experience in the world. Unfortunately, we have limited resources for that. Not all of us are able to travel in a place every weekend or month. Luckily the internet has a solution for you. Now, more than ever you can visit wonderful places and get the feeling of traveling without leaving your bedroom. It’s true that you won’t get the same results as in real life, but if you have some spare time you can try these out.

360 videos

The New York Times released a series of 360-degree videos from 7 beautiful places on earth called, the “New seven wonders of the earth”. In this series, you will be able to check out places like The Great Wall of China. The Taj Mahal. Petra. The Colosseum. Christ the Redeemer. Chichén Itzá. Machu Picchu. Nothing can replace the feeling of being there IRL but it has some benefits as well.

One of the advantages of visiting these places virtually is that you don’t have to wait for hours in a line. The other benefit of these virtual trips is that it can help you to organize your next travel. It’s easier to decide on your next journey if you know what to expect.

Online museums

A bunch of museums like The National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art (Seoul), J. Paul Getty Museum (Los Angeles), Musée D’Orsay (Paris), Museu de Arte de São Paulo, etc. are offering virtual tours for those who are interested in such things. Usually, if you want to visit them physically you will spend hours waiting to enter the museum, and then it takes plenty of time to visit everything in the museum. And in the end, you lost a whole day just by visiting a single museum. With online museums you don’t have such problems, it just takes a few clicks to enter the museum and then you are free to visit everything you want, without being annoyed by the other tourists. It’s a great way to get some inspiration or to prepare for an art presentation in college.

National Parks

If you’re not into art and just want to revisit your favorite day-to-day places the internet has the answer for you. Some of the websites can offer you a virtual tour in simple places like Central Park, the beautiful streets of Ibiza, Yosemite National Park in California or Rocky Mountain National Park in Colorado. This last one even offers a sound library for you where you can listen to the different bird types that you would hear in real life.

Online casino games

If you miss partying and socializing the most then you can try out some online games with others. You can join a simple table with strangers or to invite your friends and talk on an app, so it will be just like a regular Saturday afternoon. You can try out all kinds of games that you would find in a casino on a trip. There are games like poker, blackjack, roulette, etc. . And you can do all this just by accessing a website. So if you’re a lazy type and just want to have some fun at home you should definitely try this out.
