Virtual PH is 360° a virtual tour panorama of beautiful sites around the Philippines. I think this is such an amazing concept to promote Bohol and as well as the rest of the Philippines. People want preview, they want if their buck is worth the visit here, so you give them a virtual tour of what’s like to be in a specific place in the Philippines.
Though the site is not update regularly, some sections are even for further development it’s still a very good concept and I do hope the creators would further develop the site. This is from their About Us section.
I start searching for topics on the web related to 360° panorama, its not hard finding one since there are a lot of photographers around the globe that do virtual panorama. I just cant imagine if these year is1998 I will have a hard time finding one. Since there are a lot of website that cater panoramic tour and shares the technology behind it, like the hardware and software to use, the problem does not rely on the technology anymore but the challenge goes to how you would come up with a nice 360° panorama.
This started the idea of doing a virtual tour of places were we lived. Our beloved Philippines. You will see different places, tourist spot, resorts, churches etc. all over the Philippines in a different way. Although we are not a traveller nor a professional photographer we just do this as a hobby.. just for the experience but what like other says once you get hooked to this you’ll never stop doing it. So we will continue to bring those gadget, take pictures, create virtual panorama of beautiful views of the Philippines until or into infinity.
We do panorama only if we have time and if we are invited by a common friend to visit their places/province or if its vacation time or if there are zero fare promo from our major airline :), Likewise we may take panorama from places near or with the vicinity. We also have our job to support our family and also to support the materials or upgrades needed for this panoromic hobby. We are trying to produce VR Tour as much as we could regularly but sometimes, time doesnt permits it. So check this site regularly for updates on our Virtual Tour.
For now, explore our site and enjoy your visit to Philippines lovely places.
As of the time being, most panorama scenes are from Bohol. Here are some short clips:
