Click on the "panorama" picture in the top right and click on a street with that weird camera icon.

Hows did you ever figure that out? I googled and was given the instruction to drag the camera icon, but it turns into the ghost-buster symbol, when youI drag it.

Well it's definitely not intuitive. Are you still having trouble? Just move your cursor over the map after clicking on the panorama image. Then click on the street. Is it possible that your browser is blocking it?

I have it figures out. Sadly, the camera car has visited only the better districts of larger cities and the busy highways, and there are no rural or village views.

Yes, unfortunately it only shows the major cities. This is disappointing because modern Chinese cities/buildings tend to look identical across the country (with the exception of a few skylines, buildings, and traditional districts).

I had hoped for a glimpse of China's real beauty- the diverse terrain, landscapes, and biodiversity spread across the country.
