Places We Will Never Visit: Pyongyang, North Korea
Scared of Rocket Man? It is known that North Korea is a mysterious and isolated country, but at least its capital Pyongyang does not look that different from any North American city. On the contrary, it is even more colorful. Aram Pan flew over it with a microlight aircraft to make an exclusive 360 video for NK News.
For those of you who are interested in knowing more about the country from the ground, we recommend two excellent movies: Under the Sun, presented at Austin’s South by Southwest film festival in 2016, and the recent Liberation Day, which records the first performance of a foreign band (Laibach) in North Korea.
Discovery TRVLR: Travel the World from Your Seat
Want to travel the world without leaving home? Here’s your chance (kinda). Google has partnered with Discovery VR to launch Discovery TRVLR, a 38-episode immersive series which promises to take you “in every corner of the globe across all seven continents”, starting from Auckland, New Zealand.
How can you go wrong here, at least as a tourist? There’s no doubt you’ll save precious time and money compared to a real life, pre-packaged tour.
Find all episodes of Discovery TRVLR on YouTube or the Discovery VR app. They can be comfortably experienced in VR with the new Google Daydream View headset as well as with Cardboard, Samsung Gear VR, and Oculus Rift.
