Getting up for a Tour Around Asia? Sum up Asia in a paragraph? Good luck. Positively massive by just about every measure, the sole thread that unites this diverse continent is the sheer diversity of experiences it presents to travellers. So, arid deserts and towering peaks; secluded temples and bustling markets. Tiny villages and sprawling cities; ancient history and cutting-edge modernity. Teeming crowds and places so remote you won’t find another human being around for miles — Tour Around Asia encompasses all this and so, so, so much more. Don’t expect to absorb it all; dive on in and let it seep into your skin.
Asia is Earth’s largest and most populous continent, located primarily in the Eastern and Northern Hemispheres.
It shares the continental landmass of Eurasia with the continent of Europe. And the continental landmass of Afro-Eurasia with both Europe and Africa.
So, Asia covers an area of 44,579,000 square kilometres (17,212,000 sq mi), about 30% of Earth’s total land area and 8.7% of the Earth’s total surface area.
The continent, which has long been home to the majority of the human population, was the site of many of the first civilizations.
And, Asia is notable for not only its overall large size and population, but also dense and large settlements, as well as vast barely populated regions.
So, Its 4.5 billion people (as of June 2019) constitute roughly 60% of the world’s population.
