    WHERE ARE THE ASIAN BORDERS? (PART 1: AUSTRALIA & AFRICA)
    Asia is the largest of all continents, covering an area of 44,579,000 square kilometres, that's 30% of the Earth's total land area.
    It has given rise to many of the world's first civilizations, and has long been home to the majority of the human population.
    But have you ever wondered what actually counts as Asia? Where exactly are the borders?
    Do they sit nicely in between countries, or can a country be divided?
    This video is part one of a three part series. We cover 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 go 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, Egypt's border, and more.
    Part two will cover the messy Europe Asia border, Russia's continental status, and the North America Asia border that isn't as simple as you might think.

    SOME CLARIFICATIONS & CORRECTIONS:
    ► There are many viewpoints for what counts as Asia (some even consider Australia to be part of Asia...it's not), so this video is less about what's 'right', and more an overview of different perspectives.
    ► There's a lot of debate in the comments whether to use 'Australia', 'Australasia' or 'Oceania' as the continental terminology. I won't get into the details here, but Oceania doesn't come close to being a "large, discrete, continuous mass of land" (it's also more-so a region) so geographically it's hard to call it a continent. But geopolitically, it's another story.
    ► I used the term 'Sea of Japan', but I know many Korean people prefer 'East Sea'. Right or wrong, I just went with Google Map's terminology.
    ► Likewise, many Arab countries would prefer 'The Arabian Gulf', rather than 'The Persian Gulf' that I used.
    ► I pronounced Timor-Leste wrong. It's said 'Timor-Lest-ay' like 'cafe'. [Edit: apparently I was right?]
    ► I also pronounced 'Weber' wrong, crap. It's said 'Vay-ber' not 'Web-ber'
    ► Most, but not all, of Yemen's Hanish Islands is considered part of Asia.
    ► Different countries teach a differing number of existing continents. Many parts of the world teach 7 continents including China, India & most English speaking countries. Japan, Russia and Eastern Europe go with 6 continents. And France, Italy, Spain & Indonesia go with 5.

      East Asians are Asians, and those who belong to the Indo-European Language group have a closer common ancestor to Europeans. The atlantic all the way to India was Europe. "Middle Easterners" are closer in relation to Europeans than East Asians.
      Also, North Africa all the way North was Europe. The caliphate displaced europeans in the middle ages.

    One big factor in splitting continents is the tectonic plates. The African and Asian plates are split exactly where you first drew the line. While Europe shares a piece of land with Africa (North Morocco has a set of mountains called The Rif Mountains, they're literally on top of the border of the two plates), other factors are then considered, just like Europe and Asia are split, they both share the SAME plate, but they're two different continents. Asia as a continent doesn't have one plate as well, it has the Arabian plate, the Indian plate and the Philippines sea plate. the only continents that have their own plates are Africa and Australia, they don't share their plates with any other continent nor the continents contain more than 1 plate.

    The scientific consensus on what constitutes a continent seems to be tectonic plates. In that regard, Europe and Asia share the same plate and are one continent, Turkey, Cyprus, India and Sri Lanka are on other plates and therefore technically not Asia.
    Despite popular belief, the Sinai peninsula is located on the African plate, as is Malta, these are therefore technically part of the African continent.
    I think there are about 80 plates and by scientific consensus that many continents. The bulk of which are minor and micro plates located under the Oceans.
    A more intriguing question is, where does Europe border Asia?
    Since it's the same plate, that border can only be cultural, historical and political.
    Some historians put that border along the Bosporus, Caucasus, Caspian Sea, the Ural river and the Ural mountains. Which would then include all of Kazakhstan and Russia west of the Ural river to Europe, as does Georgia, Azerbaijan and arguably Armenia.
    Regardless, there's no definitive answer to what a continent is.
    Personally I'd go with the tectonic plates as it is more consistent than arbitrary criteria such as culture, history and politics.
    Then again, there's some inconsistencies on what constitutes one tectonic plate, since many micro plates are often lumped in with a minor or major plate. (The Indo-Australian plate for example.)

    Sorry, but that _Oceania_ is culturally Asia, geografically within Papua New Guinea (because dividing an island into two belongings to continents is absolutely unusual and wrong), Australia includes only the country, although there ara several vegetation and zoological Asia-Australia borders on the Sunda Islands. That's not "extreme point of view", that's how e.g. _Diercke Weltatlas_ shows the continents.

    East Asians do not consider central and south Asian as "Asians". Culture's different, people look different, everything's different. If you refer to someone from India you would say "That's an Indian". The idea of mangling distinct cultures groups is more common in the west. Fifteen years in Asia no East Asian I ever know referred to Middle / South Asian as "Asians".

      I don't think so. At least I don't, because of things like football - in Asian Cup we(China) often go against countries like Iraq, Syria, Saudi Arabia, etc so it has always been clear to me that these countries are Asian, too. On the other hand, I've seen a lot of Americans do this because they use the concept of "middle east" so much that the concept of "west Asia" never cross their mind.

    • Tao Yanbao
      Tao Yanbao Day ago +1

      Saudis are just as much Asians as Japanese are. Chinese refer to themselves as "Chinese", so of course they refer to people from India as "Indians". I have lived in east Asia for years, and never heard anyone saying that Indians aren't Asians. "Asian" is not an ethnicity or race; it's a reference to someone with a background in Asia. I think you mean the east Asian ethnic cluster.

      +Turtle Tail Exactly. Even many east Indonesians who technically are rather Oceanians if that's even a word consider themselves Asians. Well if they say so then who am I as a white European to claim otherwise? I'm western European and by no means look southern Spanish just to give an example but we all consider ourselves European. It's what it is. They're just labels. I don't really care. Humans made it an art to distinguish between whatever groups. Which is quite the accomplishment for a species that has a very poor genetic variance compared to most other mammals on this planet.

      Maybe East Asians do that, but Indians most definitely consider themselves Asian. It isn't up to East Asians to define what 'Asians' are. I lived in Southeast Asia for a long time and everyone there proudly called themselves asian.

    Afro Eurasia makes more sense. I mean if you're going to have rules for something then they should follow them. The whole area can pretty much be considered Asia
