Asia is just too massive and diverse to conceptualize to be a single digestible travel “destination”. Even defining the borders in this continent is hard – on the mountains across the Black Sea in the western world, for the snow fields of Siberia inside the east, there are other people and cities in Asia than beyond it.
World’s highest point is Mount Everest
Asia’s as well as the world’s highest point is Mount Everest, over the border of Tibet and Nepal, which rises to 8,848m (29,028 ft) above sea level. Its lowest point would be the Dead Sea, located for the meeting points of Israel, the Palestinian Territories, and Jordan, whose surface is 400m (1,312 ft) below sea level. Asia’s longest river would be the Yangtze, which runs 6,300km (3,915 miles) through China, all the way from your high Tibetan Plateau to Shanghai. Its largest lake may be the 386,400km² (149,200 square mile) Caspian Sea, that is surrounded by several Central Asian nations.
Asia is bounded with the Pacific Ocean to your east, by Australia to your southeast, and because of the Indian Ocean on the south. It’s bordered from the Red Sea for the southwest, by Europe plus the Urals to your west, and through the Arctic Ocean to your north.

Asia offers very diverse travel options. There are ultra modern, largely democratic countries like Japan along with the East Asian Tigers (regions and countries) of Singapore, Hong Kong, Taiwan and South Korea which might be very prosperous as well as in which people enjoy very good standards of living. On the other hand, Afghanistan, Laos and East Timor are really poor countries where people struggle extending its love to get a few grains of rice daily. Of course, in addition there are many countries lying somewhere inside the middle, like the emerging powerhouses of China and India which will make wonderful travel destinations muscle strength due to their long history, size and diversity. Thailand is really a magnet for travellers, with great food, an exotic climate, fascinating culture and great beaches.
Asia also contains North Korea, suffering under one among, or even the most, oppressive regimes from the world and, as being a police state, very freed from muggings and non-state crimes.
