We told you in April about Street View imagery in Cambodia around the temples of Angkor Wat. Now, Google have released imagery for much of the rest of Cambodia, as well as a significant amount in Indonesia, although the Indonesian imagery appears to be almost entirely on the islands of Java and Bali. Thanks to GEB reader IxBxTx for alerting us to the update.
According to this article Google set up a fleet of Street View cars in Indonesia, back in 2012. All the imagery I checked in both countries was dated some time in 2013, so maybe it has taken a while to process the imagery, or they had to wait for approval from local authorities. It apparently took 4 years to get approval in Greece which finally got Street View in June this year.

Street View coverage for Cambodia. Note that Thailand already had Street View.
We’ve seen Google generate many thousands of miles of Street View imagery over the years. From cities such as Venice, to neat places such as a corn maze, to amazing locations such as the Grand Canyon, Google’s various Street View-capturing tools seem to be able to get it all.
Now they’ve just released imagery of Angkor Wat in Siem Reap, Cambodia, using their popular Street View cars, the innovative trekker and other tools.
