Google Street View launches in Dubai

A Burj-eye view

Yesterday, Google announced the official addition of Dubai to its Google Street View, giving people around the world a chance to visit the world’s tallest skyscraper and largest shopping malls via their computer screen...

Google Street View has now provided an inside look at the Dubai Mall and other views of the UAE city's pedestrian walkways, highways, skyscrapers, beaches and the Dubai Creek.

The online pictorial map of Dubai – the first from the UAE to appear on Google Street View – allows users to navigate through the old and new streets of the city, as well as different levels of the 830-metre-tall Burj Khalifa in Downtown Dubai. 

This is the first time the Google Street View has been available in an Arab country, and aims to usher in more tourism to the city.
