The largest continent in the world is a land of great diversity, having both the world’s highest point, Mount Everest along the border of Tibet and Nepal, and the lowest point, the Dead Sea located where Israel, Jordan and the Palestinian Territories converge. From the scorching hot deserts of the Middle East to the frigid climate in Siberia, Asia is also a land of extremes both in its landscapes and people. While Asia has some of the most developed regions in the world like ultra-modern Japan, Singapore, China, and Russia, there are regions that are extremely poor like Laos, Yemen, and East Timor.
Its people too are as diverse as the landscape, with Russia forming its northern and eastern borders, the Middle East countries to its West and the Indian subcontinent to the South. It’s not easy to stereotype an Asian as the countries that come under the borders of this continent are so diverse. Most of the world religions like Hinduism, Christianity, Islam, Buddhism, and Judaism were founded in Asia and so the land is also steeped in spirituality. Predictably too, the continent has some of the most religious places in the world, such as Jerusalem, Varanasi, Mecca, and Bodh Gaya. A visitor to these lands is easily mesmerized by the uniqueness of the continent and drawn to its beauty, be it the magnificent ancient monuments such as the Great Wall of China, and the Angkor Wat in Cambodia, to the desert ruins and ancient cities of the Middle East, and the wide expanse of idyllic beaches, Asia has to be experienced to be truly appreciated.
