Baidu Maps That Look Like SimCity

I was recently tipped off to the map feature on Baidu, the Chinese search engine. Baidu Map is basically the equivalent of Google Maps, except there isn’t a Street View function. Instead, a number of Chinese cities have been painstakingly recreated in a 3D pixel style rendering that looks just like the computer game SimCity! I was completely obsessed with SimCity 2000 in junior high (“porn tips guzz ardo” anyone?). Click on any of the images below to explore Baidu Map for yourself. I’ll warn you, though, it’s rather addictive. Censorship aside, it’s pretty neat.
