World Heritage Sites..Search your site..
I don’t know if you already know about this website but at 1001 wonders, you can get World Heritage Tours at your finger tips. The best thing is the experience on viewing the picture are more Interesting than Flickr!. You view the picture and an imagine as if you were really there!. I try to search Melaka and yes they have 360 degree picture of some of Melaka heritage site. For once my head get dizzy while watching the Stadhuys complex spiraling at the computer screen. Depending of your screen, the wider the better. Registration is very simple and straight forward. At present I can’t see any option of adding your own picture. I think the pictures are chosen by UNESCO committee. So be seated in front of your computer and start browsing World Heritage Tour.
