A 360-degree virtual reality (VR) tour of the White House has been released by Google on its YouTube video-sharing website, to unfold a peek at the holiday displays. The tour gives a glimpse of the holiday decorations at ‘the People’s House’ – the residence of US President Barack Obama.

The VR tour also offers a chance to the viewers to virtually visit some other areas of the White House, including a tennis court, a jogging track, a swimming pool, a bowling lane, a billiard room, and a movie theater.
