Mapjack have added Pattaya in Thailand to their growing list of cities with street view images. They also have images from San Francisco, Sausalito, Lake Tahoe, Yosemite National Park and Chiang Mai in Thailand.

China have a street view service similar to Google Maps StreetView named City8. It covers 30 cities in China. Unfortunately it’s only available in chinese at the moment but a representative from the company tells StreetViewFun.com that they will soon have an english version.
