Company set to launch 3-D travel website

A new Singapore-based travel website, 3rd Planet, is creating a 3-D experience for travellers.

The 3-D technology promises a realistic look at the most popular sites in a country with built-to-scale reconstructions of actual places within famous destinations.

"It will give travellers a chance to preview a city and make their plans on what they will do and where they will go once they get there,” said Terence Mak, chief executive of 3rd Planet.

The site is expected to launch later this year, featuring Nepal as its first destination.

The company is working with tourism boards and other visitor promotion groups.

The site will be free to the users but partners are charged a fee.
