Everyone loves going on holiday, but times are tight. We can’t all afford to jet off around the world. Now thanks to Google’s mapping tech, with Google Earth and Google Maps you don’t have to leave your chair to see what other parts of the globe have to offer. And if you are going on holiday, why not check out your destination before to see what it’s like?
Before you start you’ll need to download Google Earth. If you’ve not explored it before, it’s well worth a look. Type in a landmark or destination and you’ll be able to zoom in, click on photographs taken by visitors and even sometimes take a 3D tour
We’ve got a list of some of the best places to see – some you’d like to visit, some are oddities or spectacles, and some even give you an interactive tour. So what are you waiting for? Put the kettle on and come globetrotting with us.
