What Is It?
Let’s go there. And there. Yeah, there too. For those who truly want to go everywhere, sometimes virtual reality is more feasible than dozens of plane tickets. Traveling in VR not only eliminates, language barriers and visa fees…there’s very little chance you’ll ever miss your flight.
There are two reasons travelers put on a VR headset: to plan and to escape. Maybe you use YouVisit to teleport to Cape Town on your lunch break, enjoying the view from Table Mountain. Or maybe you need to choose between visiting NYC and Paris, and a Google Images search simply isn’t a sufficient tiebreaker. Download YouVisit and hatch your escape plan!
How Does It Work?
“But wait,” you say, “I don’t own a VR headset!” Not a problem. While the experience is certainly optimized by using an actual headset, YouVisit also works as a 360-degree video on desktop and smartphones. A compromised approach would be to get a Google Cardboard viewer, which turns nearly any phone into a VR headset for only $15. We definitely recommend using high-quality headphones for a more immersive experience. And while this might sound obvious, don’t forget to look around and use the controller to interact with the environment.
YouVisit’s 360-degree destinations—from Alaska to Tel Aviv—are certainly inspiring, as it would be wonderful to travel to the globe’s every nook and cranny. But if your budget and timeframe are more “spring break” than “sabbatical,” tough choices must be made. Given the time and resources you’re investing in a trip, a little virtual research will help you choose the ideal itinerary.
Our Favorite Part
Admit it: an immersive VR experience is better than any travel agent or hotel sales rep. Furthermore, YouVisit highlights the best of the best, making the impossible possible—truly. Hang with lemurs and tigers in YouVisit’s Exotic Kingdom or train for space travel with NASA astronauts.
The point is: VR eliminates all borders and barriers to travel. Anyone can go on a virtual vacation anywhere, anytime. Next time you have a travel itch that needs scratching, simply put on a headset. We won’t claim it’s the same as being there…but it’s pretty darn close.

Annie’s based in Los Angeles but hails from Portland, Oregon. Sort of. She moved to six states by the time she reached middle school, and continues to move around the US and abroad – call her a nomad, but she prefers “Location ADHD.” After studying abroad in New Zealand, Annie circled the globe, graduated from USC, and circled the world once again. For one year she lived out of a backpack everywhere from The Philippines to Nepal to Slovenia to Norway. She’s a curry connoisseur and passionate explorer, taking the road less traveled, the “trail” covered in vines and swarmed in exotic bugs. Foreign lands feel like home, and Annie loves encouraging more and more people to utilize their passports and experience a new culture.
