Can you visualize how breathtaking it would be to see live footage of thousands of temples and the great panoramic view over Bagan, Myanmar while on a hot air balloon, or hiking at the Grand Canyon, or watch live videos of a music concert?
Tag along your celebrity travelers as they explore the globe on Snapchat – a revolutionary mobile app that lets you send pictures, text, videos and emojis to an audience in real time, it disappears after a few seconds of a person viewing them. Snapchat users are rapidly increasing and erupting in popularity with over 250 million daily users and over a billion snaps per day.
