Asia is the biggest and most populated continent with 53 different countries. More than 60% of the people live in Asia. Indeed, there are more than 4 billion people in Asia and almost 7 billion people in the world!!!
Asia begins at Suez Canal (in Egypt) and is east of the Ural Mountains and South of the Caucasus Mountains, the Caspian Sea and the Black Sea. Siberia (in Russia) is in the very Northeast of Asia and is separated from America (Alaska) by the Bering Strait. The Indian Ocean is in the South, the Arctic Ocean is in the North and the Pacific Ocean in the Southeast. Some geographers do not consider Asia and Europe to be separate continents, as there is no logical physical separation between them.
Because of the size an diversity of people, languages, geography and history, Asia is a mixture of cultures and regions from China to Israel to Uzbekistan. Asia has many different natural resources, such as petroleum, minerals, fish, water and metal.
