Can you guess which landmark topped the list?
Google has announced that Dubai’s Burj Khalifa is the most visited iconic landmark on Street View on Google Maps across the Middle East and North Africa.
The search engine’s Street View tool offers panoramic, street-level, 360-degree imagery of destinations and landmarks across the globe.
Google first introduced Street View in the MENA region in 2013 and has been helping people explore the region virtually ever since.
Globally, over the last 15 years, Street View cars have travelled more than 10 million miles – a distance equivalent to circling the globe more than 400 times – and have collected more than 220 billion images.
On Google Maps Street View, you can also look into historical images for some of these locations to see how they’ve changed over time.
