I have already made this type of list about europe, south america and latin america, and the list about africa has already been made before so I shall continue to do these types of lists. I did one about specifically central asia, but now I will do a list of the most interesting countries in asia as whole. Keep in mind that asia is the biggest continent in the world with over 50 countries so this list was surely quite hard to make, there were tons of countries I wanted to include in the list but couldn’t because there were just so many. Alright, without further ado, let’s start!
Uzbekistan is a landlocked country. It is one of two doubly landlocked countries in the world, a country completely surrounded by landlocked countries in Central Asia. …read more.

I think Uzbekistan is definitely the most interesting asian country, for a number of reasons, but I think something everyone here can agree is that the history is very interesting and fascinating. During a long, long time ago, there was the silk road, which was an ancient network of trade routes, which connected the west and east, and the three cities Samarkand, Chiva and Bukhara who played a big role during the ancients are all located in Uzbekistan, and it’s all juts so fascinating! This is also one of the three countries where the Aral sea is located. The Kyzylkum desert is also located here, a big desert. It’s easly the most interesting one in my opinion – darthvadern
Myanmar (formerly Burma) is a Southeast Asian nation of more than 100 ethnic groups, bordering India, Bangladesh, China, Laos and Thailand. Yangon (formerly Rangoon), the country’s largest city, is home to bustling markets, numerous parks and lakes, and the towering, gilded Shwedagon Pagoda, which contains …read more.
The biggest country in south-east asia in my opinion is Myanmar (formely known as Burma), something cool about their flag is that their flag is almost completely identical with Lithuania’s flag, except the colours are brighter and there’s a star in the middle. It’s quite a nice reference as I am half-lithuanian. This is quite a fascinating country. It has very interesting culture and history overall and there’s tons of cool places here. Capital city is Nay Pyi Daw, but it actually used to be Rangoon (the biggest city) until 2006 when they changed the capital city. Very fascinating country – darthvadern
Turkmenistan is a country in Central Asia, bordered by Kazakhstan to the northwest, Uzbekistan to the north and east, Afghanistan to the southeast, Iran to the south and southwest, and the Caspian Sea to the west.
I guess something that makes the central asian countries so interesting is that people barely know anything about those countries and that automatically makes them even more interesting, that’s part of the reason I made the most interesting central asian countries list in November 2018. Turkmenistan is the second biggest country in that region (the only country bigger in central asia is Kazakstan) and is the country in the region with the most desert, as the karakum desert takes up a lot of the country, even more than what the kyzylkum desert take up of Uzbekistan, in the karakum desert, there is this very fascinating crater Darvaza gas crater, or better known as the “door to hell”. It’s quite spooky, and it’s certainly one of the most interesting asian countries – darthvadern
Tajikistan, officially the Republic of Tajikistan, is a mountainous, landlocked country in Central Asia with an estimated 8 million people in 2013, and an area of 143,100 km2.
Even though I haven’t been to any asian country yet, something people usually talk about Tajikistan is that the scenery is breath-taking, gorgeous, and that it feels so adventurous to travel there, as if you were in a dream world, and from what I’ve studied about this country, it truly seems gorgeous. Very interesting culture as well I gotta say. It’s also the only central asian country where persian is the official language (Afghanistan is south asian), although it’s technically a dialect of persian, called tajik, and a difference is that it uses the cyrillic alphabet unlike standard persian. Really interesting country – darthvadern
Iraq, officially the Republic of Iraq, is a country in Western Asia. …read more.
Iraq is the country in which the two rivers Tigris and Eufrat are located, and do you know what ancient country was located between those two rivers? Mesopotamia, this is such an interesting country! In the ancient land of mesopotamia (technically Mesopotamia was located in Syria as well, but most of it was located in Iraq). The people who dominated mesopotamia were the sumerians in the south, the babylonians up bit more north, and in the northern parts (And this is the part located in Syria) the assyrians lived. All of them are very interesting, and I think the fact that Mesopotamia was located mostly here alone is a good reason to why it’s so interesting – darthvadern
India, officially the Republic of India, is a country in South Asia. It is the seventh-largest country by area, the second-most populous country (with over 1.2 billion people), and the most populous democracy in the world. Its capital is New Delhi. Some other major cities are Mumbai, Chennai, and Ahemdabad. …read more.
India surely deserves a spot on the list! When it comes to political geography, India is the most complex of the complex! There are hundreds of exclaves in India which belong to Bangladesh, as well as tons of indian exclaves in Bangladesh. There’s even more to talk about. The culture is very interesting and it has quite an interesting history. It’s also the biggest hinduism country in the world, as hinduism is the main religion of the country. The capital city is New Delhi located in the northen part of the country, however the biggest city is Mumbai, located on the west coast. There’s just so much to cover about this country, and I don’t want to get to complex so we’ll move on – darthvadern
China, officially the People’s Republic of China, is a sovereign state in East Asia. It is the world’s most populous state, with a population of over 1.388 billion. It was established in 1949 by Chairman Mao, the president of the communist party. Its capital is Beijing. The major cities are Shanghai, …read more.
Well obviously, this list wouldn’t be finished without the most populated country in the world (as of 2019). China is one of the biggest countries in the world with tons of land, this makes every part of China very different from each other, although chinese is the official language in the whole country. Speaking of which: chinese. There are many different chinese languagues, with the two biggest ones being mandarin and cantonese. Mandarin is the largest and is spoken in almost all of China. Cantonese is mostly spoken in the south-eastern parts such as Hong Kong and Shanghai, and it’s more complex than mandarin due to there being more sounds and stuff. It is surely quite an interesting country – darthvadern
Iran, also known as Persia, officially the Islamic Republic of Iran, is a sovereign state in Western Asia. The capital city is Teheran and the major city is also Tehran. The country’s official language is Persian. …read more.
Iran is the location in which the persian empire started, and while I do not know much about the persian empire, I do think it’s quite interesting. Very interesting culture and history, and I really want to study more about this country because of how interesting it is in my opinion – darthvadern
Kyrgyzstan, officially the Kyrgyz Republic, formerly known as Kirghizia, is a landlocked country located in Central Asia.
Have you ever heard of the mountain lake known as Issyk-Kyl? That people have found a town buried under it? That the lake never freezes despite being a mountain lake? Well then you should know that it’s located in Kyrgyzstan, the lesser known of the two mountain twins of central asia (yet the bigger one in terms of size), the other one being Tajikistan, the latter one which to an extent is somewhat more known, due to Emomali Rahmon being quite a known president. I find it quite interesting, mainly because of the issyk-kul lake, but history is quite interesting as well. I think the events after it recieved independence is quite interesting. It’s just overall a very interesting country in Asia – darthvadern
Afghanistan, officially the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan, is a landlocked country located within South Asia and Central Asia.
First country in the alphabet is surely quite a deep and interesting country! It’s a very mountainous country with tons of mountains and a very big history and interesting culture. Official languages of the country are pashto and dari. Pashto is an indo-european language spoken by the pashtun people, while dari is a dialect of the persian language, also an indo-european language, and because of this communication between the only three countries in which persian is an official language: Iran, Afghanistan and Tajikistan isn’t that hard, fun fact, this is the only country of the three that border both countries, as the other two countries may border a lot od countries as well, but they only border one persian-speaking country, which is Afghanistan. It’s a very interesting country in my opinion – darthvadern
