ASIA

INTRODUCTION                                                                            (source)
Being the biggest continent in the world, Asia includes 50 independent countries and occupies the eastern part of the single Eurasian landmass.

Surrounded by the Arctic Ocean from the north, by the Pacific Ocean from the east and by the Indian Ocean from the south, it is separated from Africa by Suez Canal. The Mediterranean Sea and Black Sea separate Asia from Europe, farther the overland border runs through the Caucasus Mountains, the Caspian Sea, the Ural River and Ural Mountains. This boundary crosses through the territory of Russia, Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan, Georgia and Turkey, so these states are in both continents. Armenia and Cyprus geographically are in Asia, but politically and culturally they also are considered as a part of Europe.

The largest of the Asian countries by area is Russia, which occupies about 30% of the total territory of the continent. The smallest one of the independent states is the Maldives, it is an archipelago of islands famous for its beach resorts.

ASIA SECTION ON OUR BLOG

Under ASIA page on our blog header, we will share our travel stories around those countries. We listed them by alphabet orders.

But, our Asia page doesn’t include Indonesia, eventhough it is located on Asia too. Because we are Indonesian, we have many things to post about Indonesia, so we made special page about Indonesia alone. You can find it on one of our blog headers.

PS. Due to some works, I haven’t finished writing all about the places we visited yet. You can follow our blog to keep on knowing the recent updates. Who knows, some places may be your next travel destination!
