If you check out Chaungtha, Ayeyarwady, Burma on Google Maps, you may think this location is water world. The streets, somehow, are hovering over the water. Heck, there is even a hotel on the water with no land base or anything holding it up.

Here is a picture:

Of course this is impossible, even if you look at the satellite view, you will see there is landmass there. Here is an embed:

This was reported in the Google Maps Help forums where a Googler responded:

Thanks for the report! I'll be sure to pass it along to the appropriate team.
