According to a recent survey by Booking.com, the Metaverse, one of the newest sub-crypto ecosystems, will let travelers choose the places they prefer to visit in person when COVID-induced travel restrictions are dismissed.
A well-known online travel agency, Booking.com, conducted a survey of 24,179 respondents in 32 countries, which showed that people are very interested in exploring locations online before making vacation plans. The age groups most likely to engage in metaverse travel were Generation Z (45%) and Millennials (43%)
The desire to use virtual reality to influence their judgments was confirmed by 43% of respondents. About 4574 people in this category believe that seeing new places is only worthwhile after having seen them on the internet first.
Additionally, more than 35% of respondents said that they would be open to spending a significant amount of time in the Metaverse getting familiar with the settings provided by well-known websites. According to Booking.com, haptic feedback and other assisting technologies will help to improve this experience by enabling customers to virtually experience sand beaches and warm sunshine.
However, based on 60% of respondents, virtual and Metaverse experiences cannot be compared to those in the actual world. Thus, the top destinations for 2023 are Paulo (Brazil), Pondicherry (India), Hobart (Australia), and Bolzano (Italy). (Italy).
Microsoft’s aspirations to enter the Metaverse industry were severely hampered after the US Federal Trade Commission (FTC) tried to block the company’s acquisition of Activision Blizzard.
The purchase of Activision Blizzard for $69 billion, according to Microsoft CEO and Chairman Satya Nadella, would have been “critical in the development of metaverse platforms.” The FTC called attention to Microsoft’s anti-competitive practices, which included limiting console game distribution after acquiring rival gaming firms.
