If you were given an opportunity to travel anywhere in the world, where would you rather go?
Not many people can give an immediate answer right off the bat since there’s just many places to see on this planet. But what if we gave you a reason to travel to a place that’s so unpredictable, mysterious, and immersively intriguing that it draws you in?
Asia, the orient treasure of the world, is home to millions of people and a wide diversity of cultures. Each and every region has its own unique set of cultures and traditions. Looking at any map of Asia, you will see that it is the biggest continent in the world with hundreds, even thousands, of beautiful tourist spots - whether natural or man-made, scattered across its vast regions.
Despite the many regional variations and dialects of Asian intricacy, it is well-known that Asian women are generally among the most sought-after brides in the world.
Asia has one of the world’s most diverse histories and cultures. It is also home to many of the world’s oldest civilizations. Asia truly is a historical marvel that transcends our knowledge of early humans. China, for example, is the birthplace of one of the oldest known civilizations in the world.
While we will not be able to detail the entire history of Asia, we can, however, highlight some of the significant events in certain periods of time in the continent.
During the Stone Age, men from all over the world lived similar lives. Hunting and foraging were the main forms of providing food and sustenance in human societies. These societies were more nomadic than settling in specific regions. Humans, unlike other animals, did not physically evolve for hunting, and as such, relied mostly on stone tools and makeshift weapons to hunt for prey.
While the Bronze Age refers to the time when humans learned how to use Bronze tools, different regions of the world entered the Bronze Age at different times. Ancient European civilizations entered the Bronze Age around 3000 B.C., while China and most of Asia entered much later – at around 1900 B.C.
The Iron Age followed immediately after the Bronze Age. This period of time was when man learned how to create and use iron to craft tools and weapons alike.
The ancient Greek King Alexander the Great conquered parts of Asia during the Iron Age. Areas in Turkey all the way up to India fell to the vast Greek Empire. Meanwhile, the Roman Empire controlled much of Western Asia.
Trade was an important part of the economy of Asia during this age, owing its success to the Silk Road that linked China with the rest of Western Asia.
During this age, Asia’s development surpassed that of the ancient West. Gunpowder became widely used and ceramics made by China gained world renown. It was during the Middle Ages when the black plague ravaged much of China, killing thousands, if not millions, of people in its wake. The plague eventually reached Europe, where it claimed millions more, wiping out the majority of its population.
It was also during this time that Christians and Muslims faced what could be the fiercest holy war. Crusaders from Europe brought the Crusades to Asia when they decided to take back the Holy Land from the Muslims. This Holy Land, presently called Palestine, was the birthplace of both Judaism and Christianity.
Most of Asia during the Modern Ages – roughly around the 17th century – fell into the hands of Europe, including the Russian Empire. After the Second World War, however, much of the areas in Asia that were controlled by Europe were given independence.
Many wars were fought during this age, including the Cold War, World War II, the Korean War, and the Vietnam War among others. This era of warring states and alliances paved the way for treaties that now bind countries such as Japan to leave their old ways of war and limit the international capacity of its armed forces.
Any historian who can briefly discuss the physical characteristics of Asia will factor in the significant events that occurred throughout history, as they have contributed to the many defining features that Asia is known for today.
Not only does learning about Asia’s history help in understanding how Asian society, culture, and practices came to be, but it also inspires and captivates the many tourists who travel to Asia each year.
Asian culture and traditions give many Asians in different countries their unique identities. Culture plays an important role in their daily lives.
Because of their culture, Asians have developed many great values that revolve around love, companionship, and family.
The family dynamic is considered the most important core unit of Asian society. This makes Asian families very tightly knit, with many extended families living together despite children growing up to get married and having a family of their own.
Religion also influenced the culture of Asia. In Islam, Muslims are permitted to practice polygamy. This contrasts most religions that only permit a monogamous relationship. Asian women who practice Islam are required to wear traditional Muslim clothing that covers their whole body, including their heads.
Buddhists worship the wisdom of their extraordinary founder, Buddha. Buddhist monks are the Asian counterparts of Western priests. They live in temples and lead prayers for their beliefs. Buddhism is one of many practices in China. Besides this, the Chinese are also famously known to believe in Feng Shui. It is a form of Chinese geomancy and superstition that uses energy forces to harmonize the environment.
Asian cuisine revolves around spices. Asia has been known for its spices way back since ancient times when the spice trade was a booming industry throughout various regions. Asians love hot and spicy food, and they have a fondness for noodles - especially in Southeast Asia. On the other hand, rice is the most important staple in Asian cuisine.
