Sometimes viewing photos may not be convincing enough for you to go somewhere which is why LokaLocal has incorporated virtual reality technology to help you decide on your next travel destination.
Malaysian travel tech platform LokaLocal has unveiled virtual reality technology to transform the way people discover destinations in Malaysia in a bid to stay afloat in the tourism industry. Its virtual tours provide interactive 360-degree experiences to inspire globetrotters to travel to Malaysia when travel restrictions are lifted.
The company said the technology is integrated with stories, videos and audio so that the public can learn about the country’s beauty from any device, wherever they are in the world. The virtual tours are currently created for hotels, resorts, real estate developers, museums and travel attractions. With their booking system, customised virtual experiences can be integrated and used to run guided online tours and manage leads.
It’s because of integration of virtual reality, the Mah Meri Cultural Village now has a virtual tour so visitors can have a glimpse of the indigenous heritage centre. Virtual tours have also enabled hotels like The Edison George Town and KLoe Hotel to showcase the unique features of the leisure spaces.
According to LokaLocal CEO, Chin Yoon Khen, the company has empowered businesses that wanted to take their stories and marketing messages into a new dimension and that virtualisation facilitated the discovery of content for venues and activities.
“This virtual reality solution also extends beyond tourism, as it can pave the way for any sector looking to innovate their digital experience, including real estate, e-shopping malls, and theme park attractions,” Chin explained.
The company has also worked separately with developers like Gamuda to present their real estate offers at Rymba Gardens, as well as luxury ateliers like Timeless Design to complement their online platform. The purpose of this digital initiative is to build the foundation for recovery amid Malaysia’s slow tourism rebound.
