Top Google Street View Travel Locations

Updated on July 3, 2011

Cool places you may not have visited:

1. Dracula's Castle in Transylvania (Bran Castle)

Located in Bran, Romania, this 14th century castle can now be seen on Google Street View. Not sure if Dracula is still there, but if you visit on Street view there is less risk of getting bit by vampires.

Travel Guides on

2. Alaskan Pipeline & Dalton Highway - Northern Alaska

No worries, it is not cold. In a matter of minutes you could be travelling on one of the most northern highways on the planet. There is absolutely nothing there except the pipeline. It is truly an amazing, beautiful getaway.

3. Tasmania

Do you know anyone who travelled to Tasmania? Now you can do it from your comfortable chair.

4. Cape Town, South Africa

This city features one of the most dramatic cityscape in the world. Feel free to climb on top of Table Mountain or just take ride by the ocean. A truly beautiful place!

5. Copacabana Beach, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Copacabana is one of the most famous beaches in the world. Admire the local Brazilian culture while taking a stroll along the ocean. You can move at your own pace while enjoying the wonderful weather.

These are just 5 suggestions. Google Street View offers a wonderful experience for anyone interested in visiting far-away places otherwise not accessible. There is always something new to be discovered as more and more streets are being photographed.

To view more, just go to Google Maps, zoom out so you can see the entire planet and drag the little yellow man in the top left corner of the image to where you want to go (blue lines equal street view, blue dots equal pictures). You can also search for a specific street or address. You may even find your own house.

Have you visited other interesting places using Google Street View? Thanks for sharing!

      I discovered it not too long ago. Really cool service this Google street view.

      It would be wonderful to visit such exotic places in person, but for now we can have a taste!
