InsideAsia Tours has developed a set of animated ‘Step Inside’ digital maps, enabling travellers to explore Japan, Burma, Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos and serving as a source of inspiration sales tool for agents too.

Together with a Bristol-based digital design agency, Green Chameleon, the operator has developed three interactive maps using 360 photospheres that allow travellers to explore a selection of InsideJapan, InsideVietnam and InsideBurma’s favourite spots.

Each spot is represented on the map by animated landmarks and icons and, when clicked on, will immerse the would-be traveller into the destination photosphere.

Matt Spiller, agents manager for the company, said: “These maps are great fun for anyone planning to travel to any of these destinations, looking for inspiration or building up the excitement for a planned trip. I think our agents will love them, but be warned, they are highly addictive. If the appetite for virtual exploration is not satisfied by our favourite sights or the random spots, as destination specialists, we can turn virtual discovery into a real cultural adventure.”
