The purpose of the study is to invent an application that can be applied in Augmented Reality to create a virtual world for cultural Tourism. The application will be used as the guideline in the tourism promotion campaign in Chiang Mai province. It integrates virtual technology into cultural tourism. Since Chiang Mai is 700 years old and a conservation city, therefore, this study will apply the virtual technology for cultural tourism and integrates the computer graphic model to create virtual worlds for the users to perceive every aspect of the 3D model through the mobile device. The Computer graphic 3D model of JadiLaung temple in Chiang Mai province is one of the virtual worlds on the application that created by AR technology. This virtual world will display the new brand experience to tourists. The Virtual reality history system is one of the functions of the application that will give the information and the configuration about the archaeological sites that are now seen incomplete.
