World Map: Largest Continent (Asia)
Asia is the largest of 7 continents. Situated in the eastern and northern hemispheres, Asia has an overall area of 44,579,000 sq. km. (that constitute 8.7% of the total surface area of the earth) and a population of almost 4 billion people (60% of the human population of the world). That's quite a continent won't you say, largest in area and largest in population and with the world looking at Asia for economic growth, we'll say its the largest for future growth.
