Iconic Landmarks As You've Never Seen Before


The world’s greatest architects spend hundreds of hours perfecting the visual impact of their buildings from every angle: inside, outside, from street level, and from the air.

But who really gets to see these incredible structures from above?

That’s why the Budget Direct Travel Insurance team decided to render six landmark buildings from across 21⁄2 millennia as cinemagraphs – photographs with looping motion picture elements.

These are the six landmarks and explore our Instagram posts here and here to view the GIF:

Sydney Opera House (Sydney, Australia)

30 St. Mary Axe ‘The Gherkin’ (London, England)

Eiffel Tower (Paris, France)

Statue of Liberty (New York City, USA)

The Colosseum (Rome, Italy)

Shwedagon Pagoda (Yangon, Myanmar)

This project gives readers the chance to experience some of the most beautiful landmarks around the world in the way that only small aircraft pilots get to experience – as daily life continues around them.

This year hasn’t been kind to the travel industry. To support those searching for armchair travel inspiration, the Budget Direct Travel Insurance team decided to offer a unique point of view on some of the world’s most sought-after destinations that can only be experienced digitally.
