Abacus International has opened the first Asia-based virtual travel agency in Second Life.

Second Life is an internet-based virtual world which enables its users to interact with each other through motional avatars, providing an advanced level of a social network service.

Users can explore, meet other residents, socialise, participate in individual and group activities, create and trade items (virtual property) and services with one another.

Currently, the virtual travel agency is limited to promoting destination experiences – providing inspiration, rather than netting actual sales.
