Google released new Street View imagery of Malaysia’s eastern state of Sabah on Thursday — just the latest addition to a slew of Street View imagery that it’s compiled in the country since late last year.
In fact, Google has Malaysia pretty well covered now (see a full list of locations at the end of this article).
“From today you too can catch your breath, in awe, at the beauty of Sabah with the launch of new Street View imagery from 23 islands and nature reserves from the area,” Google Street View’s operations lead for Malaysia, Indonesia, and Thailand wrote in a blog posting.
The area is located just south of a well-known typhoon belt: “Seafarers used to call it the ‘Land Below The Wind,’ as it provided refuge from the raging storms of the north.” It also includes Malaysia’s highest mountain and UNESCO world heritage site, Mount Kinabalu.
Earlier this month, Google added stunning new 3D imagery of Hong Kong from the air.
