Asia is the biggest continent in the world, both in area and population. It shares a border with Europe, runs through the Middle East and expands east to the Pacific Ocean. Dare to climb the legendary Mount Everest—the Himalayas highest point—in Nepal, or pray at one of the many Buddhist temples found along the streets of Taipei, Taiwan. There are Moscow’s frigid winters and the muggy summers of Hanoi, Vietnam, in Southeast Asia. With such vast land come a vast variety of cultures, which are celebrated through many festivals in Asia. Get doused in colored powder at the Holi Cow! Festival in New Delhi, celebrate Chinese New Year in Hong Kong or gawk at gorgeous lights at the Seoul Lantern Festival in South Korea.
