THE EAST

This diverse continent—the most far-reaching continent on the planet—represents a full-spectrum of climate types, and provides an array of cultures, architectural styles, traditions, and culinary flavors.

The vast land mass of Asia reaches from the Middle East to the Far East; from the eastern edge of Europe at the Ural Mountains in Russia to the Pacific Ocean; from the Arctic Ocean to the Indian Ocean. Dividing the continent into regions makes discussion more focused, as the nations within Asia are so numerous.
