Asia

Asia is the biggest continent and the cradle for the most ancient civilizations. Asia is a huge diversity of cultures, languages, religions. Asia is a whole universe.
This continent occupies 30% of our planet’s land area and has the longest coastline reaching over 62 thousand kilometers. It is interesting to know that Asia is ahead of the moon by the total landmass area. 60% of the Earth’s population reside in 48 Asian countries. Asia has a very varied topography – for example, mountains range on 70% of Japan’s territory, herewith it includes near 6000 islands.
It is really hard to study the history of Asia as a whole. It was inhabited by a great amount of ancient civilizations, which had their unique life organization and did revolutionary discoveries that we keep using even nowadays. Different languages, different cultures – these nationalities could exist absolutely separately or exchanged with each other certain experience. This land suffered from many wars, expansions, inextricable diseases. But people who lived here amazed with their adjustability and fast-moving development.
You will hear a whole ocean of dialects in Asia, and most of its countries have two and more natively spoken languages. Many religions of our world have their beginnings from its ancient nations’ mythology. And the diversity of confessions in Asia is so great, that, sometimes, it comes to absurdity. For one, the visitors of Maldives are allowed to carry only one Bible, because locals are afraid to be converted into Christians.
Asia’s situation in all climatic regions determined the formation of all types of climate – from arctic in Siberia to tropical in southern India. Its weather conditions depend on farness from the oceans, the regions’ topography and on other external agencies. Sizeable temperature fluctuation with extremely cold winter and intolerably hot summer, sandstorms, droughts, typhoons – Asia stupefies with its contrasts. For example, the air temperature in Tibet can rise up to 30 °C, while there is frost in the shade at the same time.
