places to visit without travelling

New Year’s was just a few months back and the most common resolution was to travel. Then 2020 commenced, and here we are all quarantined wherever we are, patiently waiting for the pandemic to pass.

While we sit on our couch and post throwback pictures, TicketsToDo presents you 10 places that you can travel for free, without any passport or airfares, directly to be transported via your screen.

Amazing places to virtual travelling

Virtual travel to Dubai

Dubai is one of the places to virtual travelling

So you had plans to visit Dubai in 2020? Bummer!

But you still can. Shocker!

Here’s how.

Dubai 360 was launched in 2015 to grant virtual tours. At that time it was a curious site for those planning to visit the city. And today, it’s everything your vacay to Dubai would have offered. From sightseeing of popular destinations to exploring shopping malls and museums, everything is a click away. Easy to navigate with thumbnails, the culture, and ambiance of the city radiate from the screen, no kidding. We recommend a chill drink while you fasten your seatbelts from your couch.

India – virtual travel destination

India is one of the virtual travel destination

Granted that India is a country of diversity and a virtual tour would not do much-justice, the most iconic site, however, can be traveled virtually. The magnificent Taj Mahal, the eternal symbol of love, and a baffling structure that stands pearly-white in the city of Agra is accessible from here. Airpano gives the exterior tour of the Taj Mahal in two parts. Don’t miss the history of the Taj Mahal. We recommend a tissue.

China as a place to virtual travelling

The one-stop destination for all China travelers – the Great Wall of China – can be reached right here. With its 2000 years of history and a spectacular view of the surrounding hill tops, the Great Wall of China is the second wonder on our list (there will be more). Follow few arrows and you can reach the top.

Travelling from home to Vatican City

Art lover and a traveler at once? No country is more perfect than Vatican City for you. Witness the brilliance of Michelangelo’s masterpiece with a virtual tour of the Sistine Chapel. While photography is strictly prohibited when visiting in person, the virtual tour of the Vatican is a whole another level. Don’t miss this experience!

Besides the Sistine Chapel there’s so much more to visit in the Vatican and the virtual world is keeping up. From Raphael’s Room to Pio Clementino explore Vatican in your own sweet time.

Virtual travel to France

You’ve seen the Eiffel Tower almost synonymous with Paris. However, the Louvre is much more interesting to explore, thanks to one-of-a-kind fine artworks that are challenging to comprehend. With the museum’s virtual tour, you can choose to join different exhibits including ‘Egyptian Antiquities’ and ‘The Advent of the Artist.’ Launch the virtual tour of the Louvre.

Moving southwest of the center of Paris is the beautiful Palace of Versailles constructed in 1624. Walk through the unending hallways and zoom in to the excellence of French art through Google Art and Culture.

On the banks of Seine, you can visit the Musee d’Orsay Museum that boasts artwork from 1848 to 1914.
