I have finally gotten around to updating this quiz, something I have been thinking of for a while. After more research of the regions of Asia there are some changes from the original quiz. Afghanistan is a part of South Asia; whereas I had always thought it was a part of Central Asia. Mongolia is a part of East Asia, whereas I had always thought it was geographically linked to Eastern Russia, forming a region I'd named North Asia. I have left Iran as part of West Asia, as it is according to Wikipedia. The World Atlas definition of the regions of Asia, includes Iran as part of South Asia.

I love the quiz, but HCMC should be accepted and Shenzhen for Guangzhou (since they're grouped by citypopulation.de and are usually accepted).

This one's a bit unclear, but I think Ürümqi would be #1 in Central Asia.

Would have thought Ankara got a look in for West Asia. May be not as populated as I assumed.
