The first online interactive city tour of Dubai which showcases the city’s many famous buildings is now up and running.
Dubai 360 officially launched www.Dubai360.com which allows viewers to explore every angle of the city from the comfort of their own home.
It was developed over the past 18 months using nearly 1,300 pieces of panoramic video and photo content.
Having already given internet users a glimpse of what was to come with the Dubai International Airport timelapse video and more recently, a live broadcast interactive video of the Burj Khalifa fireworks for the New Year, Dubai 360 said in a statement it will redefine how cities are viewed and explored worldwide.
Dubai 360 is the first virtual city tour that exclusively uses fully interactive and immersive 360 degree panoramic photo, timelapse and video content.
With content filmed at the pinnacle of the world’s tallest building, Burj Khalifa, the site users can see a bird’s eye view of the city with sweeping panoramas down Sheikh Zayed Road and Dubai’s coast.
From there at a click of a button, viewers can travel to the luxurious Royal Suite at the Burj Al Arab Hotel and experience the gold clad interiors, opulent rooms and stunning sea-view. A visit to Dubai Mall’s famous aquarium will allow users to swim among the sea creatures, or take a ride on Dubai’s new metro and view the city at speed.
“Dubai 360 is illustrative of what Dubai stands for. It started off as an idea and was brought to life through the passion of talented and committed individuals. The project showcases the very best of what Dubai has to offer and we will continue to use the platform to demonstrate the progress the city makes,” said Ismaeil Al Hashmi, project manager for Dubai 360.
“With Dubai360.com, whether you live in Dubai or are planning a visit, you can discover something new in the city every day. From the cultural area of Bastakiya to luxury hotels and the Dubai International Airport, this project has something for everyone, making it an exciting way to explore Dubai,” he added.
