Although at the beginning of the year it seemed that the epidemic would be over soon, the surge in the number of cases in countries including Brazil and India since the end of March and early April has once again made international tourism out of reach. For those who are bored at home, Google and the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO)Added a series of thematic guided tours of World Heritage. These guided tours combine text, photos, street views, indoor 3D panoramas, videos and other diverse content, mostly produced by local tourism bureaus or promotion units.

Google divides World Heritage Sites into four categories: cities, sacred sites, nature and history, including Rome, Pyramids, Taj Mahal, Plitvice Lakes, Kilimanjaro Mountain and many other famous attractions. In addition to virtual tourism, it should also be of great help to education.
