    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.

    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.)

    If the people "look "Asian"" then its Asia. If they look something else, only then is it unsure...

    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.

      olem Look at those funny immigrants. Europe is white, America is red, Africa is black, Asia is beige, brown and yellow, and Oceania is brown, (remember Maoris and Australian tribes?) They are the real natives. Same color of skin, one continent. USA (and Alaska seller by the stupid Russians), Canada, Australia and New Zealand are countries that have mostly European descendants. And the fun fact is that in USA they claim to be “Americans” when they are just a bunch of Africans, Asians and Europeans. LOL and don’t forget the genocides, all the tribes in North America and Australia. And Australia is a country, not a continent.

    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".
    And damn the Korean salt in the comments lol.

      +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.

    Koreans stop whining about the name of the Sea of Japan. It’s recognised as the Sea of Japan everywhere but Korea and in general naming a sea as ”East Sea” is way too unspecific.

    Most people, especially Asians, consider Turkey part of Europe. Don't believe me? Go to the site of a major hotel chain and try to look for Turkey under Asia, you will never find it there.

      The line should go through the strait of Istanbul, where the border of Anatolia or the ancient Asia Minor used to be.

    I was shocked when hearing austraila the continent, but after doing some research, he is right. At least thats what they consider in the us.
    Here in Spain we refer to the continent as Oceanía, I thought it was the same everywhere until now

      You can kinda say it’s a continent because in English there’s no word for it.

    I think Japan belongs to North America , as the northern Japanese islands are extended to the Aleutian islands to Alaska

    One thing to maybe take into account is that continents drift because of the tectonic plates they are on. Africa could be considered totally separate because in a million years, it could drift to the other side of the world from Asia. What specific parts like the Sinai going with it or staying could give you a better idea of where the border should be. My understanding is that Africa has a couple big rifts going through its east and the continent could break up.

    Europe is just a peninsular on a huge Asian continent. There is no reason to establish board between the continent and the average peninsular.

      +olem If you consider Europe is something similar to Scandinavia, or the Middle East, or Latin America etc., you are right.
      However, who and why included Azerbaijan & Georgia in Europe? Who and why included the part of Russia in Europe? In my opinion Europe locates westward from the line Trieste-Lubeсk. Others may have another opinion but from political point of view my opinion has important reasons.

      +Elena&Alexey Smirnov History. It doesn't always make sense. Who established the borders of the Middle-East? The borders of Scandinavia? The borders of Latin America? The border along the Ural mountains may come from the distinction of Russia before and after the Siberian Conquest. Regions are always divided into smaller regions. Eg. Europe from Eurasia.

      +olem Who established European political borders? It must be the deep state has done that. Who else? Are Azerbaijan, or Georgia European countries? On what base the border between Europe and Asia has marked along Ural ridge?

      +Elena&Alexey Smirnov Europe is a geographical area with political borders which is what most people speak of when they speak of continents.
