(PART 2: EUROPE) Asia is the largest and most populous continent in the world. From the physical extremes to the cultural, it's a continent that has shown tremendous diversity from one end to the other. But what exactly counts as Asia? Where are the Asian borders? This video is part two of a three part series. In part one, we covered the specific Asian borders following the coastal regions from the Tumen River between North Korea & Russia to the Suez Canal in Egypt. In between, we went over Japan's Bonin (Ogasawara) Islands, the Malay Archipelago, Indonesia's border with Papua New Guinea, the Wallace Line, the Weber Line, Asian continental shelf, the Middle East, Yemen's Socotra Archipelago, Afro-Eurasia and Egypt's border. In part two, we cover the most controversial Asian border section of Europe starting from Egypt, through Lebanon, Syria, Cyprus, Turkey, Georgia, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan and Russia. We end on the eastern side of Russia (Siberia) bordering North America, which is where part three will commence. Many feel Asian and Europe shouldn't have been separate continents to start with, as there isn't a clear physical geographical divide between the two. In fact, a few countries teach the continent of Eurasia as a result. This made this video particularly challenging as nothing is definitive and is all open to interpretation.

With Asia being so large and culturally diverse, why then are only some people called Asian? Doesn't it seem a little racially biased or just racist to only call certain people Asian based on hair color and eye color/shape? A person from Saudi Arabia is from Asia but not considered Asian!?! Maybe we should stop calling people a certain moniker and say they live in blank and have or had ancestors from blank.

Cyprus is in Europe NOT Asia.We have the euro as our currency, we joined the EU- UNLIKE F*CKING TURKEY-, our history is European and our language is Greek -A EUROPEAN LANGUAGE- For therefore I don't believe that Cyprus Belongs to Asia and this has to change Also if you believe that Cyprus belongs to Asia for the f*cking fake Turkish side you should know that the northern side of Cyprus was and will always be Cypriot.

Kento Bento, so you can amaze your friends in your next trivia contest, Obshchy Syrt is pronounced AWB-shchee SEERT, with the 'shch' being the same Cyrillic letter that spells the sound in 'Khrushchev', which is like freSH CHeese. Another point is that Asian Russia is what constitutes Siberia.

The border between Europe and Asia is nonexistent. Europe is a peninsula in Western Asia and historical, cultural, biological, geological, and other evidence confirms this fact.

Turkey isn't European or Asian, it's continental status is super disputed. If you ask to a European, they will say it is Asia. But if you ask to an African or an Asian, they will most likely tell that it is in Europe. There are good reasons. Despite Turkey being pretty westernized compared to its Asian counterparts, it still falls behind Western Europe. I am Turkish myself and I asked a Greek, a Macedonian and a Kosovar (or Albanian, ethnicities...) this question, and they ALL said it is European. The answer is: Depends on how you see Turkey. Do you see just a European country that fell behind, or a westernized Asian country that is just not accepted by Western Europe.

Search more info about Georgia please , Georgia is definitely European country historically, culturally, geopolitically, with its political and economical course. It's Christian country, was the very first country in trying to implement parliamentarian system in 12th century, there is also the 4th option where the border line cuts Georgia in two halves but u didn't mention it, sorry but in south caucasian wise this video is inappropriate

יהודה המכבי (1 month ago)
personally i think the concept of asia as a continent dont have accuracy. the term was used by ancient greeks just for their convenience as like saracen, tartary, and cathay in midieval era or maghreb and mashreq in islamic region. of course it was maybe valid for themselves in daily life but isnt for strict and academic manner. europe and asia are not separate continent each other. some people say "europe is distinct from asia in geographic and cultural aspects etc.", however other regions of "ASIA" too. the south, west, southeast, and east asia regions are obviously distinct each other in language, clothing, religion, writing, race etc. historically the separation between east and west asia was much larger than that between europe and west asia. from alexander iii to ottoman dynasty, europe and westasia interacted frequently, but west and east asia only did indirectly through central asian steppe countries except of mongol era. thus chinese writings called all the west regions from their border merely as "westland" without distinction between europe and west asia cultural spheres as like europeans did so. geographically, east, south, west asia regions are separated each other through great barriers like himalaya mts, pamir plateau etc. which are much larger than ural and caucassus mts. and indian and arabian subcontinents were independent landmasses till realitively recent time. thus there is no reason to deem europe and asia as separate continents. maybe europe could be defined as a cultural and geopolitical sphere, and other eurasian regions too. but it is not the same with the case of americas, they are truely separated continents connected each other only through panama isthmus as like that between eurasia and africa. rather, it could be compared with the cultural geographic division between super and subsaharan africa.
