Asia is a vast continent covering almost 30% of the earth's land surface. As you might expect, across the 17 million square miles that make up Asia, there is great variation from the freezing climes of its polar north to hot, dry deserts in its centre and a hot and tropical south highly influenced by Monsoons and tropical cyclones.
Asia is the largest and most populated continent in the world and can be found in the northern and eastern hemispheres. With around 4.1 billion people living there, it is home to around 60% of the world's population.
Asia, similarly to the Americas, has great variances of climates from the wetter south eastern regions, warmer south west areas and the freezing temperatures of Siberia.
Festivals in Asia run all the way through the year. There is such a huge variety, with both cultural and religious festivals, many of which date back more than 100 years. You can find one of the most well known religious festivals in India in November. Diwali, known as the Festival of Lights, celebrates good triumphing over evil with the lighting of lanterns and candles and a spectacular firework display. You could also head to Harbin in China, for the Harbin International Ice Festival and admire the amazing ice sculptures and lit ice lanterns.
One of the most popular sports in Asia is cricket, and many countries boast first class test and one day sides. Other popular sports include football, basketball and baseball. Asia possesses some of the finest sporting arenas, including the Beijing National Stadium (also known as the birds nest) which was purpose built for the 2008 Beijing Olympics.
