Bangkok on Google Map

[via Hui’s blog]

While Google Maps doesn’t know the streets of Bangkok yet (I think this is currently too difficult, even for the mighty Google, considering all the road works going on now), their satellite images does cover the area in pretty stunning details.

I’m very bad with directions, so it took me a while to find area near my home. Here’re Queen Sirikit National Convention Centre and Asoke-Sukumvit Intersection, for a start. In the second map, you can make out the BTS station and Soi Cowboy quite clearly (the dark strip joining Asoke Road and Soi 23).

It’s a long shot, but I hope this will jump start some of the cool services that make use of Google Maps in this area of the world.

Or even, taking a deep breath, Google Earth?
