In this category of Trieste offers books dedicated to Korea & Other Asia. Here you can find books about countries such as Korea, Malaysia, Philippines, Siam (Thailand today) and other Asian countries. Korea is a historical state in East Asia, mainly on the Korean Peninsula and adjacent islands. It consists of the Korean Peninsula, Jeju Island and several minor islands near the peninsula. It shares borders with China to the northwest and Russia to the northeast. It is separated from Japan to the east by the Korea Strait and the Sea of Japan. Malaysia is a country located on the southern peninsula of Asia and part of the island of Kalimantan. Important sea routes have long passed along its shores. This has determined its great strategic importance. At the beginning of our era, thanks to the strengthening of international trade, the Strait of Malacca became an ideal meeting place for Indian and Chinese merchants. The Philippines is rooted in the western Pacific Ocean on the islands of the Philippine Archipelago, which is part of the Malay Archipelago. In total, there are more than 7,600 islands, but their exact number cannot be determined, since as a result of volcanic activity, new islets appear and some old ones disappear. The South China Sea separates the Philippines from China, Vietnam, Thailand, western Malaysia and Singapore, the Sulu and Sulawesi Seas from Indonesia and eastern Malaysia. The Philippines is a unique state that has fought for its freedom and independence for many years. These lands were invaded by the Spaniards, Japanese and Americans. Miraculously, the country was able to preserve its culture and identity, and not lose its surroundings and special appearance. Siam was the most powerful and largest Thai state in Indochina, including the vassal states of Cambodia, Lanna, Laos, Pegu, and parts of Malaysia. The kingdom was founded by the Phra Raung dynasty and lasted until 1932. Originally, the Kingdom of Siam was ruled by the Khmers until the Thais achieved independence in 1238.
