This is past-post update.
In my earlier post, I had profiled two travel websites - Travelistic and TurnHere. (TurnHere has since morphed from an exclusive travel video site to a professional internet video service provider that now caters to a wide variety of businesses).
Recently I chanced upon another interesting travel video site called the GeoBeats. Geobeats hosts free professionally produced short videos on international destinations, highlighting its history, culture, cuisine, shopping, nightlife and other aspects of interest. These short videos usually feature a host who gives a guided tour of the place.
Geobeats also provides its own convenient downloadable video player that has all the videos from the site. All you have to do is just select the destination and the topic to be visually transported to that exotic place.
Featured video of the day - "Jail Hotel" in Lucerne, Switzerland.
Other useful video resources are the websites of popular travel channels on TV such as Lonely Planet and National Geographic.
* Lonely planet has a dedicated video site that features video clips from its own shows and also allows the users to upload their videos into any of its six channels.
* National Geographic has a video section with clips exclusively from its own TV shows. Check out the tab under "People and Places" for high quality videos from places both ancient and modern.
