St Giles Hotels 360 Campaign, Sydney

Two weeks ago, I was invited by St Giles Hotels to participate in their St Giles Be Central 360 Virtual Reality campaign which will be launched in September 2016.

St Giles has a series of hotels around the world, all centrally located in New York City, London, Kuala Lumpur, Penang, Sydney and Manila, enabling guests easy access to all the wonderful experiences these cities have to offer. I had the pleasure of staying at The Tank Stream, a St Giles Hotel, centrally located in Sydney CBD, which made it so easy to get to the iconic places of Sydney. Every morning I also got to enjoy buffet breakfast at Le Petit Flot Restaurant and Wine Bar – best way to start a day of exploring!

The St Giles Be Central 360 Virtual Reality campaign is one of their latest creative ideas, where they incorporate guest-generated 360-video content into virtual reality experiences. All guests are provided with the new Samsung 360 Gear camera to capture what it means to them to “Be Central” in one of these cities, and are encouraged to explore the city.

During my 2 days in Sydney, I visited the most iconic places of Sydney – Harbour Bridge, Opera House, Queen Victoria Building and Sydney Tower Eye. I also explored busy streets of Sydney CBD, amazing cafes in Surry Hills, the Chinese Garden in Darling Harbour and lots of delicious restaurants around town – including O Bar and Dining, a rotating restaurant in the sky! This was such a fun experience and I can’t wait to see the final video soon! Special thanks to Venicia Gaul from Piranha for organising everything for me!

For now, here are some photos and videos I recorded over the weekend.
