    Asia consists of a LOT of distinctive countries and islands and that can make it a bit confusing to figure out where everything is. Well, for the geographically challenged, we recommend you check out this map of Asia.

    Interesting but also illogical map. As I’m from Turkey I’ll write only the illogical part about Turkey. Yes it is true, some parts of Turkey is in asia and other part is in Europe but when you show Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia and Cyprus in Europe you have to show whole Turkey in Europe. You can split Turkey when you say all this four countries are in asia. This is a political map, not geographical.

    A good map to list some of the major locations that are in the countries (Bali, Java, etc). But it is not a very good map to show somebody the actual locations. Why does it show that Phuket is so far off the coast of Thailand? Would any geographically challenged individual be able to correctly identify where Singapore is actually located by using this map? Why are some country names in Red and others in Black? Google maps would be a better choice in my opinion.
