Wales is looking to get a jump on the idea of digital tourism by becoming the first country that makes up the United Kingdom to join the metaverse. The project has been built by Visit Wales and will allow users to explore the Welsh countryside and get a taste of its heritage before booking tickets to fly over and experience it in-person.

It's mentioned that this experience will be hosted on the metaverse platform Spatial and that it will include a historic castle with a hidden map of Wales, a cable car ride to travel from one side of the metaverse to the other, and an amphitheatre with screens showing some of Wales music and culture.

"The Wales Metaverse has been created to reach new audiences - wherever they may be in the world - and inspire them to visit our awesome nation for real," said Wales minister for tourism, Hannah Bylthyn. "By showcasing some of the best Wales has to offer visitors in this incredibly innovative way, we're putting Wales in an online sphere were millions of people already meet every day."

You can access the metaverse experience today using a phone, tablet, laptop, or computer, and via a Meta Quest headset.
