Watchinglanka Travel intends to offer a virtual travel experience to tourists from around the world for the first time in Sri Lanka.
This new project is called “Pearl on the Palm”. By integrating the newest technology in videography, we are planning to create a virtual reality of Sri Lankan travel destinations. Virtual reality will help to create a 360-degree view of each travel destination. All of these videos will be available on YouTube for anyone to watch for free.
Our intention in launching this new project is to overcome the current crisis in the tourism industry of Sri Lanka. The COVID-19 pandemic in 2019 has resulted in fewer tourists to Sri Lanka, causing the country’s tourism industry to experience a decline.
Help Us to Create a Virtual Reality of Travel
Watchinglanka Travel plans to launch a new project to promote Sri Lankan tourism worldwide. We like to ask for your financial assistance for this project.
A small donation from you will help us to start our project successfully.
Why Donate us?
The community will benefit largely once this project is executed.
- Anyone unable to afford to visit Sri Lankan tourist destinations will be able to experience a free virtual tour
- People with disabilities will be able to have the same experience as someone who is physically travelling because this initiative is constructing a virtual reality. According to estimates, 15% of people worldwide have a disability.
- Instead of viewing images, tourists will get a quick glimpse of their destination.
- As a result of their desire to see the real landscape, tourists will visit Sri Lanka more frequently.
The current economic crisis, notably the dollar issue, has resulted in a significant increase in the cost of videography equipment throughout the country. We are therefore having a very difficult time raising the required funds to purchase the equipment. We intend to conduct a collective effort to gather the project’s initial funding and equipment from donors who are willing to contribute.
We would be delighted if you could join us to fund this project.
