Travel site Expedia is trying to utilize VR as a way to encourage travel lust.

Shot on a train, it's easy for any viewer to imagine that they are on a romantic, scenic ride while soothing music plays in the background. The variety of landscapes that appear feature their location names, a description of their surroundings and their history. The VR component makes the trip realistic enough to draw travelers to book an actual trip of their own.
