Latest Articles In Asia

This category is intended for those people who have the desire to explore Earth`s largest continent along with the vast cultural, religious, ethnic, environmental and architectural diversity. The interesting thing about the continent itself is the fact that it is not clearly separated in geographical terms. It is the cultural separation that is commonly accepted.

The landmarks that are considered as the boundaries of Asia are to the east of the Suez Canal, the Ural River, and the Ural Mountains, and south of the Caucasus Mountains (or the Kuma–Manych Depression) and the Caspian and Black Seas. It`s eastern boundary is the Pacific Ocean with the Indian Ocean being at the south, while the Arctic Ocean poses as the northern frontier.

Within the given boundaries, Asia occupies 8.7% of the Earth`s total surface and is a home to an incredible 60% of the entire human population.

Now, for the purpose of giving an insight as to how exactly diverse this incredible continent is, we shall mention some of the video materials that explore in detail the various aspects of that diversity. Before we proceed, keep in mind that, sadly, there is also a dark side of this tale, the one that was ever present since the very beginning of the mankind.
