Best Country Venues in SL – Camury Reporting


The Second Life world is filled with amazing and extraordinary places, and many of them become favorites for those who enjoy exploring. Some of these wonderful places represent perfect virtual replicas of places that exist in real life and certainly deserve our visit.
See below 5 lovely places for you to visit in Second Life.

Machu Picchu
The mysterious city of Machu Picchu is one of the biggest attractions in all of South America. The ruins are above the clouds at 7,979 feet above sea level. Built around the middle of the 15th century, it is the main conquest of the Inca Empire. In Second Life you can visit and see the virtual replica of Machu Picchu and explore the stairways, temples, aqueducts and observation points scattered over a mountainous landscape resembling a maze. Machu Picchu is suitable for adventurers or those who enjoy culture and history.



Grand Canyon
The Grand Canyon is a steep gorge carved by the Colorado River in the state of Arizona in the United States. This formation is part of the Grand Canyon National Park and you can experience the graphic replica of this wonderful work of nature in Second Life. Many visitors, however, do not know everything the place can offer them, such as the distinct and inspiring landscapes and the many outdoor adventures for those who love adrenaline. Take a balloon at the entrance of the park and explore the cliffs of this tourist spot. The Grand Canyon it’s the owner of such a grandiose beauty that it inspires its visitors. It is not by chance that he was elected one of the seven natural wonders of the world.



Great Wall Of China
The Great Wall of China is a military architecture structure built during the Imperial China, and is also considered one of the seven wonders of the world. The Great Wall consists of several walls, built during several dynasties over approximately two millennia. If, in the past, its function was essentially defensive, at the present it is a symbol of China and a sought after tourist attraction. You can get to know the graphic representation, have fun and explore this great work in Second Life. Do not forget to visit the Pandas Bears.

Venice
Venice is a city in the northeastern of Italy, located on the marshy Venice Lagoon, which stretches along the coast between the mouths of the Po and Piave rivers. Venice is famous for the beauty of its architecture and works of art. A part of the city is considered World Heritage, along with its lagoon. Take a gondola and stroll through the replica of this beautiful city in Second Life. Explore the canals, the magnificent squares and bridges and even stop for coffee or wine while enjoying the view of the lagoon.

Eiffel Tower
The Eiffel Tower is a 324 meter high iron structure, built in the 19th century and located on the Champ de Mars in Paris. The Tower has become a world icon of France and one of the most recognized and visited structures in the world. In Second Life, you can explore the virtual replica of this magnificent structure and visit the square and surrounding buildings. If you are more into a bit of adrenaline, you should climb up to the top of the tower and enjoy jumping parachutes. There is nothing better than exploring and getting to know the beautiful landscapes and monuments that graphic designers create in Second Life.

For those who enjoy beaches, waterfalls, snow, pyramids ... for all tastes there’s always some interesting place to meet. Adventure yourself!

Let’s Take a Trip to Venice in Second Life- Piers Diesel Reporting...


Located on an archipelago in the North-eastern Mediterranean Sea, the city of Venice dates back 1500 years and is made up of 118 flat islands, 416 bridges and 177 canals. Long ago it was the biggest power in that region during the 1300-1500’s. Today, Venice is visited by tourists at an average of 18 million a year and is one of the famous honeymoon spots for couples who want to experience a romantic gondola ride and dine on Venetian cuisine. If you have always wanted to travel to Venice in Real Life but never had the chance, you can do that virtually. You don’t even need a passport to get there!
Venice Second Life has been created cleverly to resemble Real Life Venice with gondoliers, little caf├ęs and the winding cobblestone streets with shops to explore. Here are a few things you can find and do in Second Life Venice.

What is a trip to Venice without Gondola rides?
Yes, it is possible to take a gondola ride at Second Life Venice. It is manually operated which means you navigate the gondolier through the waterways.
Don’t worry if you are not an experienced gondolier. It is not hard to do and you can forget that you are handling it once you sit back and enjoy the ride and views. It is perfect for a romantic date or exploring some realism in Second Life. I would recommend at least trying it to give you the Venice feel.



Rictorante Caffe Saraceno

This is a great place to meet up with friends or your partner and have a meal or even a cup of coffee while talking about your week or day. The service is excellent with attentive staff.  The restaurant overlooks the Grand Canal where you can watch people go by on the water or even by foot on the narrow pavements.  The perfect time to go is at sunset.  The sun’s reflection on the water sets the mood well.



Rialto Bridge

You may recognise this bridge as it is the exact copy to the one in Real Life the Rialto Bridge. This would be the bridge when you TP to the Venice Second Life sim be the landing point. From the Rialto Bridge you are able to wander around the sim easily by foot if you choose to not use a gondolier. It also gives you the perfect bird’s eye view of the sim allowing you to easily take good pics of the sim.
Shopping is a big deal for tourists both in the real world and in Second Life. Rialto Bridge is a good landing point to reach the shops!


Shopping in the Mediterranean

There are quite a few good shops on the sim that offer a variety of products. These shops can be found around the winding cobbled streets along the canal and also in the backstreets. Not all shops are brand names which can be good as you can sometimes find that little unusual gift for someone or even yourself. That is so fun about shopping. It is like going on a treasure hunt.




Saint Marks Square

Here you will find more gondoliers and  shops. Saint Mark’s Square is a perfect spot to take photos of your adventures.  



I would definitely recommend Second Life Venice and have always visited here when I want to take stock of the day or catch up with people in Second Life.  It is definitely worth the visit.
