The COVID-19 pandemic has a major impact on the tourism industry due to travel restrictions. This effort is a form of policy in several countries to contain the spread of the corona virus which has resulted in a decrease in the level of demand among travelers.

Tourism is one of the fastest growing economic sectors in the world. Of course there is a special attraction when traveling, for example; discover new places, taste new food or drinks, learn about inspiring culture and customs, get to know the fauna and flora of a region, meet people from all over the world, get to know a thrilling history and culture, listen to a captivating foreign language, experience the climate and different weather, admire creative and diverse fashions, discover foreign art, enjoy cultural festivals and events, and lastly enjoy a relaxing and enjoyable time.

So far, tourism has focused on providing a unique experience for the travellers. However, Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) have the potential to support tourism with innovative customer service models. In the coming years, AR is believed to significantly influence the business model in this sector.

In the travel industry, VR can be used to capture tourist destinations in unique and immersive ways. This is achieved using specialist cameras, rigs, and software. The finished content can then be viewed on a VR headset, ordinary computer, or mobile device.

Meanwhile, the importance of AR in the tourism industry has not been emphasized enough. The potential of AR is huge so it can help you uncover new business opportunities. The travel industry usually sells experiences and AR not only solves new points of view but enhances the travel experience as well. AR is able to expand the customer base of hotels, reservation services, local restaurants, and all other stakeholders in the industry.

Augmented reality has the potential to allow tourism companies to innovate to provide more creative services. Providing virtual tours of hotel suites and other facilities with a single tap on the mobile screen, this feature not only eases the information search process for travelers but also helps them make better booking decisions. With the ability with narrowing the spaces between Reality and Virtual Reality, AR enhances physical objects with digital information to create interactive experiences from real-world environments.

In recent years, several attractive AR devices have entered the market. Because tourism is one of the fastest growing economic sectors in the world and has become one of the major players in international trade.
