Project Description


With the trend of COVID-19, the tourism industry in Tasmania has been severely affected, and with the travel ban went effect in March, there are few visitors who are allowed to enter Tasmania. Compared with previous years, it is easy to notice that the volume of visitors and the money they spend is lower.

Based on this situation, it is necessary to rescue Tasmania’s tourism industry. What we are proposing here is a project named ‘Travel at Home’, which is based on VR videos of each tourism site, google maps and a series of online websites, try to offer people the same traveling experience at home. There are two benefits to this. The first one is safety. When traveling online at home, there is no need to worry about the COVID-19 at all, if compared with a traditional physical visit. For the other one, it will make a big advantage over other states. With the promotion of online advertisements, it will attract more people’s attention. And all the websites can sell souvenirs. All the souvenirs can be delivered to online visitors if they ordered via online portal. Besides, all the websites can be updated with main functions added if the COVID-19 eased in the future. With a low cost, the websites can be the ones that help the visitors to book a travel service including accommodation and tickets, etc. and people can pay it online or at the site counter.
