Amid the pandemic halting the physical tourism business, The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) has innovated a new way to keep its revenue growing. Thailand, which has many popular tourist destinations, attracts millions of visitors from all over the world. As people are unable to travels, the authority has launched a portal for virtual reality tours of its famous top four locations including, Bangkok, Phuket, Chiang Mai, and Surat Thani.
The virtual reality tour gives an immersive 360° view of the destinations. The visitors get to explore the attractions in 3d from the website. The website is beautifully designed where you can enter a building via mouse gestures and move around easily. Most of the attractions have information about their historical background, and also, the details of items on display are in both English and Thai.
The 3D virtual tour gives visitors a visual image of each attraction, and that will hopefully encourage them to visit some of them in real life in the near future. In Bangkok, the virtual tour lets visitors explore Mekhala Ruchi Pavilion’s two-storey teak wood building in all its glory. It once served as the residence of King Rama VI when Phayathai Palace was under construction. Phuket has a virtual tour of its famous Chinpracha House. Chiang Mai has the popular Phra Chao Tan Chai Ma Tam Na Bun Chapel or the Big Reclining Buddha at Wat Chedi Luang. In the southern region, there are virtual tours of Chedi Khao Hua Chuk in Surat Thani and Chinpracha House in Phuket.
