Baidu Maps is China's equivalent to the user-friendly Google Maps. Due to China's censorship of Google and all their services, there had to be an alternative put in place to help people navigate their way through one of the biggest countries in the world.

What makes Baidu Maps significantly different than Google Maps is the overall design and architecture of the tool. The view you get from Baidu Maps is like something you would see out of the computer game SimCity 2000. Navigating through the streets even almost feels like a game.

Though Baidu Maps may not be as detailed as Google Maps, it gives Chinese travelers a tool to navigate through the country effectively. Stats for Pixelized Street Finders Trending: Older & Mild
