While many of your clients’ bucket list trips might have been cancelled or postponed, there are still ways that they can make the most of this situation, such as reading the history behind their destination, learning some words of the local tongue, or even taking a virtual tour to keep the excitement. In this article, we’re focusing on the latter: virtual tours of some of the world’s top attractions. Even if you have visited these top attractions before, it might be nice to go back in and see how things might have changed!

Great Wall of China

It’s easy to understand (even from your couch) why the Great Wall is considered one of the Seven Wonders of the World. This virtual tour allows you to “walk” along the Great Wall while still being able to take in the views and understand the magnitude and scale of one of China’s most famous landmarks.

Montserrat, Spain

This beautiful monastery built into the surrounding cliffs is something out of a fantasy novel, and now that fantasy can be enjoyed from the comfort of your home. The virtual tour takes you to different sections of the monastery and offers a 360 degree click and drag experience.

La Sagrada Familia, Spain

No trip to Barcelona would be complete without a trip to la Sagrada Familia.

Sydney Opera House, Australia

Synonymous with Sydney, the Opera House is definitely a bucket list item for most of us.

Disney World, United States

With so many school vacations coming up, a lot of kids (and even some parents) were absolutely excited to get down to Disney World. Even though the parks are currently closed, you can “walk” down Main Street as if you were there. And for an added bonus, you can also pretend as though you are on some of the rides.

Trips to Mars aren’t possible for most of us… yet. But if there’s anything we can learn from our current predicament, it is that we have to be thinking about the future. Now you can walk on Mars without having to go through the rigorous training astronauts have to go through in order to go to space.
