The continent of Asia is located in the north eastern hemisphere. It covers about 30% of the land mass of the world and is densely populated with over 60% of the total world population.
The continent of Asia has an exotic, mysterious feel to it. As you travel across the land you will experience beautiful scenery, including forests, rivers, and mountains. In the more modern cities, you will get a chance to experience the alluring architecture of the buildings and monuments.
Tourism is a growing addition to the economy in parts of Asia, and a thriving industry in other parts. Some of the major places to visit are China, Japan, Malaysia, Indonesia, and Thailand.
