Asia is the largest continent in the world, covering approximately 44.5 million square kilometers of China, Japan, Thailand, India, and the Middle East. Not surprisingly, it’s also the most populous continent on Earth, with over 4.5+ billion people, all trying to stream Netflix at the same time. With such a vast array of cultures, languages, and religions, Asia can lay claim to many of the world’s most important historical and cultural sites, too (see the Great Wall of China, Taj Mahal, and Angkor Wat). Asia’s diverse landscapes range from frozen tundras to tropical rainforests, and from soaring mountain ranges to scorching deserts. Whatever you want to see or do, you can see or do in Asia. And it’s probably legal there to boot.
