Inspired by The Atlantic's "Where in the World? A Google Earth Puzzle," we have launched an Asia-Pacific-specific version of the satellite imagery quiz. Using unaltered images found on Google Earth, we have attempted to put together a collection of impressive, and sometimes mysterious, natural and man-made features from across the region.
We invite you to put your geographical knowledge to the test and guess which Asia-Pacific location each image depicts. You can follow the link below to find the answers.
Tell us how you fared in a comment. Have fun guessing. And good luck!
