Augmented Reality (AR) is a technology that combines the real world with a virtual object, be it a two-dimensional object (2D) or three dimensions (3D) in real time. The development of AR technology has contributed a lot in various fields, one of those areas is tourism. AR in tourism can help tourists to explore objects in real terms. AR search for tourist destinations is an android application developed using Unity 3D and android studio. A person who wishes to go to a popular tourist destination in India can give a voice command to the application and that voice command will be converted into text using IBM Watson and then that text will be searched in the database and match the image of the tourist destination. The database contains the 3D images of the popular tourist destination in India. The 3D image will be displayed in Augmented Reality over a real environment. This paper focuses on the work carried out by other researchers in this domain.
