Five virtual vacations you can experience from home

Here are the 5 virtual vacations you can experience from home.

It’s safe to say that traveling is one of the most beautiful things people can do when they have free time. Seeing new countries and cultures is a wonderful thing. However, traveling today is not the same as it was three years ago. COVID-19 changed the rules and, unfortunately, some people can’t travel to specific countries. If you love to travel, but you have restrictions that don’t allow you to, you may be looking for a way to fix this issue. There is one thing you can do. You can go on a virtual vacation. What exactly is a virtual vacation? Well, it’s an online journey that allows you to see the most beautiful sites in the world from your living room. Here are the 5 virtual vacations you can experience from home.

Have fun in Thailand
If you always wanted to see this wonderful country, you can do it from your living room. There are plenty of beautiful things to see. For example, you can explore breathtaking temples like Wat Rong Khun the white temple or Wat Rong Seua Ten the blue temple. If you want to experience the famous nightlife in this country, you can play casino online in Thailand or chat with single people on the dating scene. Sure, you can’t compare the virtual experience with the real thing, but this allows you to get to know the culture and maybe find people you can meet when you get the chance to go to Thailand in person. It’s better than sitting at home and doing nothing.

African safari
Seeing an African safari game drive in person is a breathtaking experience. However, if you can’t go and see it in person, you can explore it from your home. You can do this thanks to the luxury travel company andBeyond and wildlife broadcasting experts WildEarth. Those two companies decided to work together in order to provide people with two streams twice per day. The personalized game drives that you can view from the comfort of your home will allow you to see the natural wonders safari has to offer. One safari lasts three hours. The safaris will be streamed in real-time from two wonderful South African game reserves, the andBeyond Ngala Private Game Reserve and Djuma Private Game Reserve. If you want to see the breathtaking African sites and see the most beautiful animals, then you should go on this virtual vacation.

See The White House
If you want to see the home of the president of the United States, you can do it from your home. The virtual tour of the White House allows you to see every single one of the rooms in this beautiful house. You can visit the Eisenhower Executive Office Building, the Vice President’s Ceremonial Office, the Secretary of War Suite, the War Library/The Law Library, and The Indian Treaty Room. On this tour, you will learn about the art and decor of the house that changed with every president. You will also be able to see the Entrance Hall, East Room, Blue Room, Green Room, Red Room, State Dining Room, Vermeil Room, China Room, East Garden Room, and other things. If you want to learn about American politics and culture, this is the perfect thing for you.

Walk with llamas At Machu Picchu
People who love nature love going on adventures. This means they love finding new sites to explore. If you are one of those people, but you are stuck at home, you can go on a virtual hike at Machu Picchu. This is one of the most beautiful things you can see. There are old ruins from the 15th century you can explore and if you love animals, you can walk with the adorable llamas. This adventure will definitely make your day better.

Enjoy the views of Lake Tahoe
If you love walking by the beautiful bodies of water, but you can’t explore the beautiful lakes the way you want, you can go on a virtual tour of Lake Tahoe. The view of the Sierra Nevada Mountains will leave you speechless and you will be able to meditate while looking at the calm water of Lake Tahoe. You can share this vacation with your loved one or you can take this time for yourself and simply rest your eyes.

The COVID-19 virus changed the rules when it comes to traveling. A lot of people simply can’t go to specific countries because of the restrictions. However, if you can’t wait for your next adventure, you can go on a virtual vacation from your living room. Sure, this won’t be the same as seeing those things in person, but it’s a good way to have fun at home and learn new things. It’s also much cheaper than the regular vacation. That’s a good thing.
