Travelling around the World from Home
Tick off your bucket list with Google Earth or Google Street View and explore the places you’ve been wanting to visit from different angles! With millions of panoramic images to look at, you’ll get a wonderful virtual representation of the places you’ve been wanting to see.
Isn’t that cool? And this is all thanks to the awesome advancements in technology! In fact, panoramic images are taken using specialised software or equipment that captures images with horizontally elongated fields of view.
You can even go on to Explore.org, where there are up to 100 livestreams of really cool places – take the Northern Lights for example. All made readily available for your viewing pleasure. Simply click away!
Museum Hop Online
You can now not only visit and explore museums in Singapore, but also in other countries as well – all thanks to Google Arts and Culture! View digital exhibitions and go on virtual tours at famous places and galleries across the world.
Some examples include The Great Pyramid of Giza in Egypt, and even the Borobudur in Indonesia!
They’ve even got a special segment called Google Arts and Culture Experiments created by artists and creative coders. It’s filled with digital games like puzzles, crosswords and even an art colouring book – so if you ever need a breather from work or study, you know where to go!
