Geography – Asia

Posted on: December 4, 2015

Before I start, I just would like to share why suddenly so many geography posts here. As my children are able to read newspapers nowadays, somehow I kind of get questions from them asking about countries or places they encountered in the newspapers. There are times where they know the country but have no clue which part of the world the country is located. I check the secondary school syllabus for geography, sad to say, neh, they aren’t teaching world geography. So, here I am, trying to find some useful sites/materials to teach them some basic geography knowledge.

Ok, let’s start.
