Asia is a rather big country! The land stretches westward until, after approximately 4,000 kilometres, it meets the border with Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan from Shanghai on the East coast. The country stretches an almost equal distance of nearly 4,000 kilometres from its far northern border with Russia to the southernmost city of Zhanjiang. South, China has edges with Vietnam, Laos, Myanmar, India, Bhutan and Nepal, while to your north the edge satisfies Kazakhstan, Mongolia and Russia. The country’s east shore is bounded because of the Yellow Sea, the East Asia water therefore the Southern Asia water, and it is divided from Taiwan by the 150 kilometre-wide Taiwan Strait. Asia’s capital, Beijing (formerly Peking), is situated inland, more or less 160 kilometres through the tiny and nearly enclosed Gulf of Chihli.
