I recently found out about Vietnam 720 – a cool website with virtual tours of lots of tourist attractions, streets, markets, shops, spas etc. in Saigon and elsewhere in Vietnam. Of particular interest to me are the cafes and restaurants – now I can have a sneak peek at some before checking them out, as well as find out about others I didn’t know existed – great! There are some places I’ve blogged about featured on the site too, like a virtual tour of the mosque and new bar Amber Room – so you can get a better idea of what they look like! Apparently the site will be updated with a new virtual tour every day.
This reminds me of the beautiful 360 degree images of Angkor you can see here http://www.mouthtosource.net/grand_tour_mini/index_en.htm and the ones of different parts of the Mekong River here http://mouthtosource.net/rivers/mekong/mekong-panoramas/. Some of the ones from Luang Prabang really make me want to go back.
Alo Liz, this is Ben from Vietnam720.com. Thank you for introducing my website to your visitors. I have picked quite a bit of visits from your blog since you mentioned my website here.
I like your style of writing- short but concise 🙂
Hi Liz, I have revamped my website and now those old links are not working anymore. If you can correct them in your blog, it will be very kind of you. Also introducing this new feature here : http://www.vietnam720.com/Virtual-Objects/Egg-Embro.10.html. It’s a ‘tour’ of an egg embro 🙂
Hi Ben – no problem, done!
Alo Liz, thank you 🙂
Btw, found you at globalpost too 🙂
