Favorite Places on Google Maps

Google announced this week an interesting implementation on Google Mape that allows you to discover a collection of favorite places around the world. To unveil these locations, Google invited some well-known people to provide their own perspectives on the locations.

Among the people invited by Google are writer Paulo Coelho, professional skateboarder Tony Hawk, former vice president of the United States Al Gore, ocean explorer Jean-Michel Cousteau and several other experts on traveling the world.

If you are desperate to find cool places to travel, be sure to check the places marked by personalities and their reports on Google Maps. Visit google.com/favoriteplaces or m.google.com/fav to get to know them.

To make the service even more appealing to the public, Google installed “real placemarks” in some of the celebrity location suggestions. TechCrunch photos:
