Top 7 Dreamy Places to Virtually Visit with Your Partner
Not all of us are blessed with the fortune of witnessing our bucket list destinations, be it because of lack of time, budget or the Coronavirus. Yet, what we are blessed with is the right technology to take us to our dream destination from the comfort of our living room. Virtual tours, built out of a sequence of videos or images, are simulations of existing locations on the face of the Earth.
Virtual tourism is not just popular among tourists but also among buyers of property. According to research conducted by the National Association of Realtors (NAR), approximately 54% of respondents take a virtual tour of the property they wish to buy.
So, sit back and enjoy a tour of these seven dreamy places from all around the world, with your partner.
1. Taj Mahal
Taj Mahal is a prime attraction of tourists all over the world. Built by the Mughal emperor, Shah Jahan, Taj Mahal is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It took 22,000 workers and 17 years to build this magnificent instance of architecture. Virtual tours with 360° panorama views help visitors to explore the magnificent monument, online, sitting at home. With arrow buttons, you can manually change the direction of your view from left to right, top to bottom, and navigate the panoramic view, the way you want to.

It happens to be the largest amphitheatre in the world with a length of 189 meters, a width of 156 meters and a height of 50 meters.

7. The Eiffel Tower
Visiting the Eiffel Tower is on the bucket list of almost all couples. Situated on the Champ de Mars in Paris, the Eiffel Tower is one of the most recognized structures in the world.

However, even if you cannot reach the Eiffel Tower physically, you can definitely experience the beauty, virtually.
The purpose of virtual tourism is not to replace actual traveling. That is next to impossible. However, the advancement of technology must be appreciated. Virtual tourism has two perks. The first being, with just a gadget and an internet connection, you can reach places you had always dreamed about, even though traveling can be expensive, time-consuming and so on. The second perk is that it will encourage you to travel more. You might be doubtful about visiting a certain place, but a virtual tour will help you to make up your mind. Not only this, you can in fact plan a ride through the countryside on direct bikes with your partner and make it a memorable one.
