After being jealous for the longest time that there is streetview for Rome, Google Streetview is now available for Singapore! I just realised it this morning as DK was twittering about it.
It’s really easy to navigate :
First you go to google maps and then type in the destination that you want to see.
And then you drag out the yellow man icon on the top left corner into the said street
And then you’ll see your destination in 3D. Wonderful! Here is one of my favourite places to shop in Singapore.
I love streetview, it really helps a lot when you’re not familiar with a place and want to get a feel of the direction. For more, you might want to check out this post by the folks of Tech65.
I spent probably a full half an hour just looking at my neighbourhood in Jurong. Remembering the roads that I used to roam at. Remembering the bus rides. Somehow it eases the homesickeness a little bit.
