Would You Take A Virtual Vacation?

Japan's biggest airline is betting that the future of travel isn't travelling at all. For the last month, a married couple in Oita Prefecture has been interacting with a robot – called an Avatar – that's controlled by their daughter hundreds of miles away in Tokyo. Could this be the future of tourism?

Produced by: Christine Wong

Presented by: Richard Bradbury, Jeff Sandhu, & Freda Liu
