Google Street View Comes To Malaysia

23 09 2013

Do you like the idea of exploring the streets in Malaysia from your computers?

Now we can, but it will take a while until we can explore all the streets in Malaysia because Google Malaysia’s crews are still taking photos of the streets in Malaysia.

However, there are 18 locations that could now be explored using the street view made by Google Maps.

– Sri Subramaniam Temple, Batu Caves

– Masjid Sultan Sallahuddin Abdul Aziz Shah, Shah Alam

– Taman Tasik Titiwangsa

– Fort Cornwallis, Penang

Dharmikarama Burmese Temple, Georgetown, Penang

Kapitan Keling Mosque, Penang

– Penang War Museum

– Taman Putra Perdana, Putrajaya

– Taman Rimba Riang Park, Selangor

– Taman Tasik Shah Alam, Selangor

– Sunway Lagoon

– Shah Alam Go Kart

– Taman Desa Water Park

– Taman Rimba Kiara

– Taman Botanical Kepong

– Taman Tasik Kepong Metropolitan

– Desa Park City

– Taman Tasik Ampang Hilir

Those places can be explored using the classic Google Maps, or the new Google Maps.

It will be fun to see the car with the camera that Google use to collect all the photos for Google Street View.

Anyway, if you don’t want your house to be seen on the Street View, you can contact Google.

Have fun using Street View!

Here is the video of the launching of Street View feature in Malaysia.
