List of countries and capitals of Asia

Of all the continents in the world, Asia is the largest and most densely populated, with more than 4000 million inhabitants. This continent includes 48 countries and has more than 2000 languages.

It can be considered, alongside Europe, the cradle of Western civilisation, since the three biggest monotheistic religions - Islam, Judaism and Christianity - emerged from that continent, as well as Hinduism, Buddhism, Confucianism and Shintoism.

In Asia we find massive features, natural and man-made, like the Great Wall of China and Mount Everest in the Himalayas. Below, we at OneHowTo.com have provided a list of countries and capitals in Asia. They are in alphabetical order and there is a map so that you can findthe location of each and every one.
