Virtual Tourism

April 29, 2007

This blog combines descriptions from Wikipedia with videos from YouTube and Lonely Planet…and satellite photos from GoogleMaps to make a great site for looking at tourist spots around the world. You may search by country. Scroll down the site list on the left and click on any of the destinations; a GoogleMap will appear that you may manipulate as usual, i.e., zoom in and out and move in all four directions. If you want to see the accompnaying video, just click on the red icon that pinpoints the destination on the map.
