With sixty percent of the world's population and thirty percent of the landmass, there are so many things that Asia offers the world physically, culturally and economically. With the size of the continent, it is no wonder that there are many different diverse cultures existing inside. From the billion people that occupy the country of India to those who live in the tiny nation of the Maldives, with a population of less than 400,000 people, there is no one way to describe the entire continent as a whole. But there are so many reasons why you might want to learn more about this section of the planet. Whether you're sitting on the couch in your office planning a trip through the country or are just writing a report for school, we at MinsuKing.com want to open your eyes to all of the sides of Asia.

Asia was first given its name and mapped out by those of the Western world and was meant to include all of the land past Greece and Egypt to the east. This was when the world was thought to be only three continents - Europe, Africa and Asia. As explorers started to venture into this side of the world from 700AD onwards they began to discover just how vast and complex this area really was. Now we recognize that there are fifty-two countries in Asia and a population of just over four billion people. When looking at a map of Europe you would usually find that the continent is broken up into six different regions - Central, Eastern, Northern, Southeastern, Southern, and Western Asia.

When looking at these regions separately one can see similarities between the culture and people of the countries included in each grouping. While many of the Eastern countries are known for their growing economies and exports of everything from drywall to clothing, some of the nation's on the Western side are now building their reputation as vacation hotspots.
