To address visitors’ growing interest in participating in historical experiences and smart travel and to enrich visitors’ travel experience in Hong Kong, the Hong Kong Tourism Board (HKTB) has joined hands with sky100 Hong Kong Observation Deck (sky100) and the acclaimed virtual reality (VR) experience design house TimeLooper to introduce “VR Time Travel: Step into Old Hong Kong” micro films. Cutting-edge VR technology was employed to recreate a 360-degree panorama of classic and memorable scenes of Hong Kong, i.e., Hollywood Road crowded with rickshaw pullers in the 1960s, and the neighbourhoods around Kai Tak Airport in the 1980s – when aircraft flew just over top of the residential area.

You turn your head to the sky and see a fleet of Nazi bombers overhead. The raid sirens blare in your ears. There's nowhere to hide in London's Trafalgar Square—there are soldiers behind you and nurses beside them—ready to treat the soon-to-be-wounded. A single bomb crashes in the middle of the square. The deafening roar passes, and you're left with a high-pitched ringing from simulated ear damage until you take off your VR headset. VR experiences that recreate historical events are becoming more popular in classrooms and at historic sites across the globe. And some creators are hoping they can amplify textbook accounts with a deeper, more empathetic look at some of our most critical moments.  Yigit Yigiter, CEO of TimeLooper, which made the Trafalgar Square recreation, said he and his team relied on World War II historians when recreating Trafalgar Square in 1940.
