Virtual tourism is essentially a hybrid concept- it combines both the notions of virtual reality and tourism. In essence, virtual tourism facilitates a tourism experience, without actually having to travel anywhere. Whilst the notion of virtual tourism really gained gravitas during the COVID pandemic, virtual tourism is actually much bigger than that and it is here to stay! In this video I teach you all about virtual tourism, how the virtual tourism industry has grown and the advantages and disadvantages of virtual tourism. I also give you lots of virtual tourism examples! 🌎 LEARN MORE at https://tourismteacher.com/virtual-tourism/ 🌎 Time stamps- 00:00 Introduction to virtual tourism 00:49 What is virtual tourism? 03:57 The growth of virtual tourism 08:16 Types of virtual tourism *Get your FREE study skills guide here- https://www.subscribepage.com/study-skills *Get your FREE plagiarism checker and proofreader with Grammarly- https://shareasale.com/r.cfm?b=224327&u=1989555&m=26748&urllink=&afftrack= - ARE YOU A TRAVEL AND TOURISM TEACHER? -Join the Tourism Teacher Tribe: https://tourismteacher.com/tourism-teacher-tribe/ -Get teaching classroom resources: https://tourismteacher.com/sales-page-travel-and-tourism-teaching-resources/ -Organise a guest talk: https://tourismteacher.com/tourism-teacher-guest-talks-lectures-and-presentations/ -Connect with other teachers: https://www.facebook.com/groups/2381535295397924 - ARE YOU A STUDENT? - Get the ultimate travel and tourism reading list- https://tourismteacher.com/travel-and-tourism-reading-list/ -Join me in my classroom, get feedback on your work or sign up for mentorship here- https://www.patreon.com/drhayleystainton?fan_landing=true -Learn more about tourism: https://tourismteacher.com/category/learn-more-about-the-tourism-industry/ LETS CONNECT -Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/the_tourism_teacher/ -Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/thetourismteacher -LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/hayley-stainton/ -Twitter: https://twitter.com/DrStainton CONTACT- If you would like to work with me contact firstname.lastname@example.org DISCLAIMER: Links included in this description may be affiliate links.
