Sightseeing with Google Maps

Lately I’ve been having a bit of fun spying on far away places with Google Maps. It’s a great way to waste time – once you start looking around it becomes very addictive as fascinating scenes unfold.

Here’s just a few interesting images for your perusal (you may need to zoom in once or twice on some)…

Google’s desktop application for its maps, Google Earth, has mostly the same images, but with the bonus of adding maps containing 3D models… check out the popular Google Earth Blog for more, or for more cool stuff in Google Maps head to Google Sightseeing.

    Many of the images, and other odd sights, are available at, a community-driven Google Maps and Google Earth sightseeing community!
