The COVID-19 outbreak has restricted our movement in every way. Everyone is staying indoors right now with airlines all around the world grounding their flights and countries closing borders.
Still, there’s no reason to restrict our imagination. Make up for your cancelled travel plans and see the world from the comfort of your home through these live webcam broadcasts.
- New York’s Times Square
The streets of Times Square are always jam-packed with locals and tourists alike. As one of probably the busiest places in the world, Times Square in the time of coronavirus is bare and empty without the usual crowd, and the colourful LED adverts continue to cheer up the place.
- Tokyo’s Shibuya Crossing
The metropolitan city of Tokyo’s famous Shibuya crossing needs no introduction. Located right outside Shibuya Station, this intersection is one of the busiest junctions in the world on regular days. Unlike its usual look, the crossing is not as crowded with people and cars, yet it’s not completely deserted.
- Canada’s Northern Lights
Seeing the magnificent Northern Lights is a lifelong dream for many of us. Now you can do that without needing to travel all the way! Only not with your naked eyes, but through this live feed from Manitoba, Canada. Even though it’s not quite the prime aurora borealis season at the moment, you’ll still be able to see swirls of green in the sky!
- South Africa’s Tembe National Park
Missing the outdoors and nature? This live feed is brought to you straight from Tembe National Park’s watering hole, close to South Africa’s border with Mozambique.
