The colonial history plays an important role in the development of Hong Kong and reflects the city culture. This project aims to contribute in enhancing young generation’s understanding of Hong Kong’s past by transferring knowledge related to architecture, heritage conservation, and tourism development to students through an innovative approach – VR tour. Students are able to “visit” the architecture in the classroom, without time and geographic constraints. It is also an effective platform to conduct research, e.g. evaluation of the effectiveness of VR tours in promoting urban heritage tourism in Hong Kong.
Uniqueness and Competitive Advantages:
- Audio guides are included in the tours to introduce users the architecture and heritages
- VR tour workshops will be provided for school teachers to utilise the VR platform in their courses
- Asia Society will use the VR video on our platform as a virtual tour guide for visitors
