Google Earth has become one of the top platforms during the COVID-19 crisis which has allowed people to go on a sort of virtual “vacation,” checking out faraway destinations from the comfort of their own homes.

A new feature of Google Earth now allows you to visit more than 30 World Heritage Sites from your living room, taking you on a breathtaking virtual tour of some of the world’s top attractions.

A smattering of World Heritage Sites across the continents of Africa, Europe, and Asia have been selected to be shown off in this new and exciting innovation in the Google Earth platform.

Simply by clicking on the name of sites such as Stonehenge, La Alhambra, the Pyramid of Khufu, and the Towers of Angkor Wat, you now have the ability to use your mouse and cursor to guide yourself around the grounds of these important places.

Completely free and open to the public, Google Earth’s newest tool is a great option for exploring around the world without ever leaving your own home. This keeps yourself and others safe, and might even inspire you to take a “real” trip to one of these magical places when the COVID-19 pandemic ends.

So, what are you waiting for? Start playing around with this fascinating tool and explore the world!
