Laos vs Thailand

I've just found the starting location for a Laos map (#5 of the https://www.geoguessr.com/game/EgiSN6OdPrBoDfga set in Explorer) -- but the location is actually in Thailand (coordinates 19.5937563,101.0795969)! There are no Google Streetview roads in Laos that are even remotely close to it.

I hesitate to make a guess on the Explorer map, since it isn't in the "right" country. 

Any suggestions?  Thanks!

  • You have to guess where you start even if the location if in another country. What matters is the distance between your guess and the starting location, not the country.

    This problem happens with countries that have almost no Street View so the game sometimes picks locations nearby.

  • Thank you for the explanation; identifying the location in Thailand worked perfectly!
