Google Maps Street View in Hong Kong

Finally, Google Maps Hong Kong adds (the long waited) Street View function. Google Street View allows you to virtually explore city neighborhoods by viewing and navigating within 360-degree scenes of street-level imagery. It was first launched back in March 2007 in major US cities. Now, available in US, Canada, Australia, some EU countries, Taiwan, and many more.

Last year, Google's Taiwan office has confirmed that street view would be coming to Hong Kong soon (after the launch in Taiwan in August last year). Several have been spotting street view cars across Hong Kong since January 2009. So far, street view has done a good job covering major roads and streets in Hong Kong. Here are some touristy scenic spots:

Time Square:

Golden Bauhinia Square:

The Hong Kong International Airport Terminal 1:

On Tsing Ma Bridge:

Google has an official guide to Street View where you can learn more about behind the scene about the vehicles and their imagery.
