Culture is top of mind for Street View travelers looking at Asia

Last year, the world’s virtual tourists favoured Japan: its trails weaving up Mount Fuji, its colorful, hectic canal at Dōtonbori and its secluded ruins at Hashima Island were the most popular Street View destinations in Asia. This year, though Japan still attracts many of the world’s virtual tourists, cultural monuments and temples across the region are also taking center stage.

In the past year, India’s iconic Taj Mahal, published on Street View only last February, has emerged as one of the most popular Asian places for global virtual travelers. The fascination with this grand, symmetrical white marble mausoleum also holds within Asia, with the Taj Mahal ranking as one of the most globally viewed destinations by people in Singapore, Australia, Korea, Philippines, Malaysia and, of course, India.
