Google has added more than 1,000 new destinations to its Street View maps.

And it might just be the cheapest holiday you take this year - or at least, the only one you can take at your desk.

Some of the new destinations include the Marina Bay Waterfront in Singapore, the Seville cathedral in Spain, the canals of Copenhagen and the Valle Nevada skiing resort in Chile.

Google said on its blog:

"Today we're adding more than 1,000 locations around the world to Google Maps, making it more comprehensive and useful for you. From historical landmarks to sports stadiums, these panoramic photos available via Street View can help you ease into vacation mode with just a few simple clicks... preview a vacation spot, to plot your next hiking route or just to become an armchair explorer from wherever you may be."

Here are a few of the best new spots from the update:
