Abstract

Virtual reality represents one of the most promising digital technologies and offers significant benefits in various areas such as medicine, entertainment, training, teaching, and tourism. This study attempts to identify, analyse, and present the existing virtual reality applications in tourism, and to predict future possible developments. Based on an extensive literature review, as well as on the direct observation and use of virtual reality applications implemented on the Web, this chapter attempts a classification of the virtual reality applications in tourism, based on different phases of tourist experience. This classification can assist practitioners in developing more adapted virtual reality applications for tourist activities.
