An updated List of Countries in Asia.
For someone who writes about Asia, I should have known the answer off the top of my head to the question of how many countries are there on a list of countries in Asia?
I didn’t. I was surprised when I checked. There’s been a lot of divvying up of the big continent. You can count the number of countries or just scroll down to the bottom to find the answer.
Where I could, I provided links to take you to sites about the countries – CIA, State Department, United Nations, that country’s site, official tourist info, BBC, Library of Congress, that country’s embassy, World Bank, and so on. In many cases, a link can send you elsewhere to find info on other countries as well. The CIA, World Bank and so on have links for all countries.
If you have a better link to introduce a country, please send me your recommendation in the comments. It would be fun for me and perhaps others who find this site to know the best source to find info on a country. Thanks!
The list of countries in Asia.
7. British Indian Ocean Territory
11. Christmas Island
12. Cocos (Keeling) Island
13. Hong Kong
22. Korea, North
23. Korea, South
40. Russia Well, half of it.
41. Saudi Arabia
43. South Ossetia
44. Sri Lanka
So, where do you want to go?
*This list is not the same as the list of Asian countries recognized or that has joined the United Nations and I am not interested here in whether or not Taiwan belongs to China and Hong Kong and Macau and all that…that’s a discussion for another time.
