Asian Geographic Issue 03/2019 No. 136
Asia has no lack of treasures and in this issue, we present the multitude of identities and forms they take. From a journey into the Golden Triangle to explore the lifestyles, spiritual beliefs, traditions and arts of the six major hill tribes that live there, we also look at UNESCO Heritage sites in India, the Philippines, Cambodia, Malaysia, Indonesia, Saudi Arabia, Israel, Jordan, Palestine, China, Qatar, Nepal, Japan, South Korea, Mongolia, Lebanon, Kyrgyzstan and Kazakhstan. We trace the intriguing journey of Koh-i-Noor, the world’s most famous diamond, from India to England, and reflect upon the bountiful natural resources that our Earth has provided in our columns on nature and wildlife.
