West Asia

The “Middle East” is that region in the continent of Asia which, whenever it is mentioned, what immediately comes to our mind is “Arab Region”.

For the Europeans, it’s the “middle” East just as China and its neighboring countries in East Asia are the “Far East” as it is furthest for them. For us in Southeast Asia, however, the “Middle East” is not the middle, neither is the “Far East” far from us. This is a classical example of social construction in geography and other social sciences.

Be that as it may, this region is a crossroad of major religious traditions; a melting-pot of tastes and textures; a locus of tradition and modernity.

That is West Asia.
