Wow, at last an Asian quiz where every other answer isn't in China! They must not like the letter K that much.

I learned about it from another quiz on here where I had to guess what country it was in. I was able to figure out it was Russia by that it sounded like it was from an Eskimo language. Pretty familiar with names from Eskimo languages up here in Alaska.

Hmm.. I left Kowloon off of my recent Asian travel quiz in part because I thought nobody would get it, but 30% got the answer here. Maybe I'll add it.

I would have thought Hong Kong was one of the few Asian cities where you might be able to drill down below the top level and still have Westerners get answers correct in half-decent percentages. Although perhaps my view is skewed, having formerly lived there.

The country in which Kashmir is located should be accepted as the answer. I tried Pakistan, Afghanistan and India, but never managed to remember that Kashmir was also the name of the province. And yes... Kobe Bryant got his name after Kobe beef. I always knew that info would come in handy one day :)

Yeah, if you want countries as accepted type ins for all of the answers then all these quizzes would be insanely easy

I really like the Asian geography by letter quizzes. It's probably quite nice to do more about Asia for a change.

Didn't know about the Christian heritage of Kerala. Most of the Indians in Khobar in Saudi Arabia seemed to be Keralite Muslims, and in their ads online offering rooms for rent they would always specify Keralite Muslims only need apply. I suppose they had to learn to hate other religions somewhere.

There is a strong Christian culture in Kerala as well as the Hindu (still majority but by a smaller margin compared to the rest of India) culture and a Muslim culture. Each strong and with its own unique identity, but Kerala is known for its religious harmony and more or less peaceful coexistence of different religions and sects. A lot of the Hindus here eat beef and have a a very loose approach to religion too.

Thanks. kalbahamut, wise and well travelled though she / he may be, shoots from the hip sometimes. Won't apologise either and prefers rambling arguments. Sigh. Never mind, let's appreciate her / his many informative comments.

Yes, very authoritative and non-compromising attitudes, often lacking in very basic knowledge, as this exemplifies (and of course this taints overall believability).

I don't think that Kazakhstan would be considered landlocked. It has some part bordering Caspian sea which would make Kazakhstan a "Non Landlocked Country". Please consider it and correct me if I'm wrong.

The Capian "Sea" is a lake that does not connect to the oceans, as do for example the Black Sea and the Mediterranean. Kazakhstan does not border any water, that connects it to the world oceans, and hence it is landlocked.

Not this again! It might have the word "Sea" in its name, but it's not a sea in the conventional sense - it's called "Sea" because it's huge and "sea-like".

Trivia fact: Kowloon is a site of the most densely populated place in the history of the world. Kowloon Walled City had population density of mind blowing 1,400,000 people per 1 km. Currently, it doesn't exist anymore.
