Asia is the largest continent in the world,
covering nearly 9% of the Earth's surface with over 60% of
the world's population. Spanning from Russia's Ural Mountains,
Egypt's Suez Canal to the Islands of Indonesia and Alaska's
Bering Straits, Asia is the world's most geographically and
demographically diverse continent on Earth. It is believed
there are approximately 2,200 languages spoken in Asia.
