With social isolation and #stayhome becoming the new normal, we are craving the opportunity to explore like never before. While world travel might not be possible just yet, many destinations and attractions around the world are offering people the chance to visit virtually. From virtual safaris to live feeds of iconic beaches, we’ve rounded up a few great ways to explore and escape, virtually.
While we might not be able to enjoy the pampered feeling of 5-star service or a Michelin Star dining experience right now, we can enjoy the views and unique offerings of some of our favourite hotels virtually.
