Google Maps just keeps expanding and expanding.

The internet giant has now made its way into Thailand. New street views include roads in Bangkok, Phuket, and Chiang Mai, though many of the historical sites have yet to make an appearance, according to Jaunted.

Beyond Thailand, Google Maps is also hopping on the train. Literally. Swiss train routes are showing up as panoramic shots in the map finder application. Looking at them may make you want to jump out the nearest window and head straight to the airport.

Still, there’s something that may even be better. You can check out galleries of the best landmarks around the world on Google Maps. Hit up the sites and sounds of the world (via photo) here.

We love that they provide both US highlights and Business highlights. Fans of the seafood restaurant Gary Danko in San Francisco will be mighty pleased they get to look at it from afar.

Yes, soon enough, there will be no corner of the Earth where Google Maps has not snapped a shot or 12. As we recently noted, they’ve already made their way into the ocean to capture the Great Barrier Reef.

If you want to go even further, there’s always the website Map of Strange: Strange Things in Google Maps. Be sure to check out where there is a free giant rubber stamp in Cleveland. It’s a must-see.
