World Heritage in China - The Old City of Lijiang

by Tito Dupret

Tito Dupret from Brussels has the intention of photographing all the UNESCO World Heritage sites in the world in Virtual Panoramas. At his website World Heritage Tour you can now see around 250 QTVR movies covering China, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Thailand, The Philippines, Vietnam and Egypt.

754 sites are inscribed on the World Heritage List and Tito has covered 52.

I heard about Tito 1 1/2 years ago right after I started Panoramas.dk and found his mission to be one of the best projects I have seen for the use of Quicktime VR.

The Old Town of Lijiang has been on the list since 1997 .

The UNESCO Committee says about it:

Lijiang is an exceptional ancient town set in a dramatic landscape which represents the harmonious fusion of different cultural traditions to produce an urban landscape of outstanding quality.
