Countries in Asia: Travel to the largest continent in the world

Asia is not only the largest continent on the planet.

It is also the continent that contains the largest number of countries and therefore, not surprisingly, has the highest population. Asia contains a good 4,1 billion people spread over 50 countries. You can learn a lot more about these countries right here, and especially why you should hurry to jump on the plane and visit Asia.

On this vast continent you'll find an almost overwhelming range of experiences, so where to begin? We should probably tell you that, because there are many countries in Asia.

Asia is home to a whole three out and about the seven wonders of the world. Here you can experience the magnificent Taj Mahal in India, the Great Wall of China China and Saint Petra i Jordan, where burial chambers are carved into the rose-colored rocks.

You can also wake up on Bali and drink your morning coffee to the sight of the mist lifting over the jungle, slowly revealing the active volcanoes on the horizon. Everything goes slowly here, and that gives peace of mind.

Sit back and enjoy a float in The dead Sea, where the salty water makes both beach towels and other inflatable equipment redundant.

Go on the trek of a lifetime in the breathtaking Himalayas, where the highest point rises in the form of Mount Everest on the border between Nepal og Bhutan.

In the spring you can experience the spectacular cherry blossom in Japan, which covers the country in a neat carpet of pink flower petals.

Pakistan harsh beauty and the great hospitality of the people will warm your heart, while Oman's cute turtles puts a smile on your face.

The country is also known as the Roof of the World, as it is well over 4000 meters above sea level havets surface. The barren nature consists of emerald green lakes, snow-capped mountain peaks and vast plains that you can explore on foot.

In the Bay of Bengal, you will find the Andaman & Nicobar Islands, offering white bounty beaches, azure seas and green palm trees swaying lazily in the wind. The idyllic islands hide a rich wildlife, and here you may be lucky enough to meet wild boar, saltwater crocodiles and elephants.
