Its history, tradition and wealth have fascinated people from all over the world, leaving it clear that West still has much to learn.There is no single homogeneous culture throughout the Asian continent, rather what is given is a diversity of cultures, which have some similar traits, certainly, but also show great differences. This is also true within countries, where we find large differences between the customs and traditions on either side of it. The culture of Asia mainly stands out for its language, cuisine, religions, tribes and festivals.The most important cultures of Asia are China, Japan and India. Cultures and traditions in Asia are almost inexhaustible source of wealth that modern man is just beginning to learn. Whether China or India or Sri Lanka or Burma, all Asian countries offer a rich culture that to this day remains largely hidden to the side of the world.

ASIAN HISTORY The history of Asia can be seen as the collective history of several distinct peripheral coastal regions such as, East Asia, South Asia, and the Middle East linked by the interior mass of the Eurasian steppe. The coastal periphery was the home to some of the world's earliest known civilizations, with each of the three regions developing early civilizations around fertile river valleys. These valleys were fertile because the soil there was rich and could bare lots of root crops. The civilizations in Mesopotamia, the Indus Valley, and China shared many similarities and likely exchanged technologies and ideas such as mathematics and the wheel. Other notions such as that of writing likely developed individually in each area. Cities, states and then empires developed in these lowlands. The steppe region had long been inhabited by mounted nomads, and from the central steppes they could reach all areas of the Asian continent. The northern part of the continent, covering much of Siberia was also inaccessible to the steppe nomads due to the dense forests and the tundra. These areas in Siberia were very sparsely populated. The centre and periphery were kept separate by mountains and deserts. The Caucas s, Himalaya, Karakum Desert, and Gobi Desert formed barriers that the steppe horsemen could only cross with difficulty. While technologically and culturally the city dwellers were more advanced, they could do little militarily to defend against the mounted hordes of the steppe. However, the lowlands did not have enough open grasslands to support a large horsebound force. Thus the nomads who conquered states in China, India, and the Middle East were soon forced to adapt to the local societies.
