Asia a major tourist attraction comprises of the eastern part of the Eurasian landmass, in the north is surrounded by the Arctic Ocean, on the east by the Pacific Ocean, in the south by the Indian Ocean and has a Suez Canal separating it from Africa. It is separated from Europe by the two huge water bodies; The Mediterranean Sea and the Black Sea. The land border runs through the Ural Mountains and River, the Caspian Sea, and the Caucasus Mountains. This border or boundary passes through the states of Turkey, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Kazakhstan and Russia making them a part of both continents. Cyprus and Armenia are parts of Europe politically and culturally yet are in Asia geographically.
Russia is the largest country in Asia as it occupies 30% of the total continent and the smallest being the Maldives an archipelago of islands known for beach resorts and is a traveler’s paradise.
