Facebook is dangerous. It is like giving out our complete population data to the United States, which sees us as their enemy. If I was the government, I would block it anyway. Google is rude. They should be punished for their attitude. The United States is not friendly to Chinese companies doing business over there either.
Oh, please not.
First, nobody forces you to open a Facebook or Google+ account. If you are concerned about the United States accessing your personal data, you simply don't use social networks. It's a personal choise, the government should have no right to dictate if people can use social networks or not.
Second, unless you are a politician, a boss of a big company, a high level in the army, a secret agent or a (suspect) terrorist or criminal, the USA has no interest to spy you. You are simply one of the 7 billion people in the earth who has his own private life. The worst thing that usually happens to common people on Facebook (as long as you use the common sense, that means installing an antivirus and firewall and not accepting "suspect" people as friends), is getting ads according to your online activity.
Third, if you are concerned about the USA spying your online activity, why you are perfectly OK with the Chinese government spying you and suspending your online connection or even prosecute you if you visit "wrong" websites?
Sorry for the long OT, but I can't accept people in the 21th century supporting such backward ideals that were common, let's say, in Nazi Germany or in the commie eastern bloc.
And in Europe, if you drive 300km\h, you will get a huge fine and a long suspension of driving license (or even arrest, in some countries like Spain). In China (or Russia, Latin America, etc...) you'll probably get away with a bribe.

You obviously do not know what is happening in China. In Russia, you can probably go away with a bribe. In China, you got 3 points if you drive <20% overspeed, or 6 points for driving 20%–50% overspeed, or 12 points for driving 50%+ overspeed. If you got 12 points or more in one year, you lose your driving license. Polices usually do not come after you and fine you in person, so there is rarely an opportunity for bribe. Cameras and radars do the job. Two or three days after you drive overspeed, you can check your records online. You will also be optionally notified on SMS or WeChat. You pay your fine in a bank.

00:11:17 Dali, 1978 m
00:14:22 Erhai Lake, 1972 m – There is no street view for the new Dali–Lijiang Expressway and new Lijiang–Zhongdian–Deqen Highway. Road condition has improved a lot in these sections.
00:23:51 Lijiang, 2400 m
00:34:56 Zhongdian / Shangri-La, 3290 m
00:48:14 Deqin / Deqen, 3300 m
00:54:56 Yunnan-Tibet border, 2280 m
01:02:24 Mangkang / Markam, 3870 m
01:11:55 Dongda Mountain, 5008 m
01:14:52 Zuogong / Zogang, 3810 m
01:20:56 Bangda / Bamda, 4125 m
01:21:51 Yela Mountain, 4658 m – Famous for dozens of turns, G318 loses nearly 2000 meters altitude from the mountain pass down to the Nujiang river. street view link
01:25:07 Nujiang Bridge, 2750 m – Soldiers guarding the bridge, only one vehicle is allowed at one time.
01:27:20 Basu / Baxoi, 3275 m
01:32:30 Ranwu / Rawu, 3940 m
01:39:04 Bomi / Bome, 2732 m
01:44:56 Tongmai Bridge, 2030 m – For the bad geologic and road condition. The original bridge was destroyed in an earthquake and mudslide in 2000. A new “temporary” bridge was built with a capacity of 20 tons. Soldiers guarding the bridge and only allows one truck or two cars on the bridge at one time. On August 2, 2013 at 11:27pm, the bridge collapsed when a truck weighs 18.9 tons was passing through, killed four, include two backpackers. G318 was interrupted for 39 days. Multiple tunnels under construction in this region and should be opened in the next one or two years.
01:51:33 Segrila / Sejila Mountain, 4728 m
01:54:31 Nyingchi, 2990 m

it isn't fair to say USA is anti-China... the country imports many things from China, and there are millions of Chinese people living in the USA too

Regarding the ferry across the lake, was it a vehicle ferry (I know the camera unit was moved up to the passenger deck for the two runs across the lake), or is passengers only? Just curious.

China is very very advanced in building tunnel and bridge. there is no such thing of vehicle ferry in china. they will sure either build huge bridge or dig tunnel when their roads meet the lake or mountain.

Very expensive fines for traffic infractions can pay for millions of new police officers and equipment. All the excuses about per capita wealth do not address the fact: bad drivers must be removed from the roads to protect others. Let the bad drivers pay for the cops through their fines.

There are vehicle ferries across Qiongzhou Strait, also between Dalian and Yantai/Weihai.

Thanks, Fersibuke. I knew about the ones to Hainan Island and have seen pis and vids of them online. I didn't know about ferries between Yantai/Weihai. I thought there was a bridge between those two cities now.

I looked around on Google Maps and found some running across the Yangtze River @ Jiangyin (S229), as well as other points along that river. I'm also aware of one north of Guangyuan which serves a County Road. Would love to know if you would be able to find out more about them and see if you could find more pics of them (I've found a handful online already).

This is absolutely phenomenal!: Thank you for all the hard work.

One question (not to sound ungrateful), since there qq maps has street view all the way out to Lake Manasarovar, would you be interested in doing that some day?

Once again, this is awesome. I watched the whole things twice already.

A couple of my views of some of the Beijing ring roads. These were taken on Boxing Day (26th December) last year.


4th ring road at Olympic Park.

Every time Chris posts a expressway opening in China...

... I run to Baidu Maps to see it (and if it has actually opened, unopened sections aren't marked). Same goes with metro extensions. Baidu also has a Street View, but it has less coverage than Tencent's.

Baidu Map is surprisingly up-to-date for expressways. They are often included on the opening day.

In some cases they don't have the number though.

its unfortunate Google has such a bad relationship with the chinese government, it would be nice to be able to access google streetview in china. Hell, even full coverage of Germany would be nice.
