important facts about Asia
1. It is the largest continent on the planet
Asia is a huge continent with a total size of 44,579,000 km2 (17,212,000 mi2) and, if that were not enough, it is also the most populated continent in the world. The largest countries in the world can be found here: Russia, China, and India.
And it does not end here because Asia is actually part of the super-continent known as Eurasia, since the Asian and European continents are not technically separated.
2. Asia has the largest number of billionaires in the world
In recent years, the world economy has been transformed and there are now more billionaires on the Asian continent than anywhere else in the world. Only China has more billionaires than the US, which continues to fall to emerging Asian economies.

This is definitely one of the most interesting facts about Asia, but you also have to keep in mind that a large number of people in Asia live in poverty. Some live on less than $ 1 a day.

3. It has the largest mountains in the world
14 of the highest mountains in the world can be found in Asia, all of which are more than 8000 meters above sea level. The highest mountain in the world is Mount Everest, which is 8,848 meters above sea level.
The most populated place in Asia
According to data from the International Monetary Fund (IMF), most of the Earth's inhabitants live in China, which represents 18.25% of the global population. It is followed closely by India, with 18.04%. In fact, India is expected to rank as the most populous country in the world in less than a decade.
