A stay in the Burj Al Arab is a little bit on the pricey side so, luckily for you, Google Street View offers the next best thing. Inside Jumeirah gives you a virtual VIP trip into the world’s most luxurious hotel. The tour begins in the impressive Cascade Lobby where you can check into your room – the Royal Suite, of course. You can then dine next to a giant aquarium, take in the spectacular views from the sky bar and even go for a dip in the infinity pool. The tour ends on the Helipad where you can take your usual helicopter departure.
If you fancy yourself as a bit of a rocket scientist, Google Street View gives you the chance to see the secret facilities that only employees and astronauts have access to. The tour takes you right inside NASA’s space centre where you can catch a glimpse of flight hardware from the International Space Station. You’ll have to head to Florida to see a rocket actually being launched though.
You don’t have to obtain a government-issued ID to step inside the White House. Google Street View’s virtual tour gives you a president’s-eye-view of the famous portrait-lined corridors and historic halls. The artwork has been captured with incredible detail so you can zoom right in and see every brush stroke.
Travel beyond the walls of the Transylvanian castle to see how the immortal half live. From the safety of your own home you can explore the spooky, opulently-decorated rooms of Dracula’s hangout. See if you can spot any vampires lurking.
There’s no need to commandeer a fishing boat armed with a net – you can search for Nessie on the internet. The 360-degree Street View lets you glide across the huge freshwater lake and even take a dip below the surface to catch a glimpse of the mythical monster.
Because, to be honest, this is probably the closest we’ll ever get to climbing Everest. With these stunning HD panoramas, there’s absolutely no need to.
