Trend Hunter's Misel Saban Shares Her Top Picks for Illusory Methods of Travel

 - Nov 27, 2014
If you want to make sure your money is well spent on your next vacation, these virtual methods of travel can be a big help before putting down a deposit. Trend Hunter Editor and Public Relations Specialist Misel Saban counts down her favorite examples of simulated travel, from virtual french tours to immersive virtual safaris and travel simulation booths.

Simulated methods of travel use technology to help you experience new places without actually having to go. For example, Google's Night Walk is curated by citizens of Marseilles so you can see an off the beaten path version of the famous French city. An online experiential travel tool enables you to preview a Tanzanian safari where as The Transporter uses the Occulus Rift to offer a 4D tourism adventure. For the mobile platform, virtual hotel concierges are available in the form of an app.
