Be it the airplane or the Internet, every technological invention has been a boon for tourists and travelers who want to see more of the planet they live in. And now, Google has taken the experience of traveling to a whole new level. Google has introduced the Google Earth VR through which you can virtually see the world right from where you are! That’s right! Whether you are in lying in bed or sitting bored at your office desk, you can just put on your VR headset and take a stroll on the streets of Tokyo.

All you need to do is put on your Google Earth VR headset called Daydream like a pair of goggles. Then, using the app called “killer” on your phone, your virtual journey begins. In the virtual world, this app lets you fly over your desired destination, take a walk on your favorite streets, and go in front or above famous monuments and landmarks. You can also choose your route or take pre-programmed virtual tours of well-known tourist spots. While you cannot interact with what you see (as of now), you can certainly visit the whole wide world using this Google Earth VR. Not just that, using a controller which comes with the Daydream headset, you can direct yourself around the globe and even zoom out to look at our planet from space. You can watch monuments from all angles and also witness sunset from your favorite points. If you are hodophobic or bed-ridden or unable to afford travel, there cannot be a better way for you to see the world!
