Top 10 Greatest Continents on Earth (Past and Present)

The Top Ten


Without Europe, the modern day world as we know it would be altered and different.

I love Europe! It has cool history, nice people, and pretty landscapes. Their culture/traditions are beautiful, as well.

This continent has the biggest history, most culture, most beautiful buildings and I think the nicest places. There are a lot of beautiful languages to learn. I would never move from Europe I just love it.

Great workers rights, work life balance. Culture everywhere. Living cities that are walkable and great transport systems. Super safe. Rich. Clean! Birthplace of western culture. The most mature mindset of any continent liberal and understanding a beacon that the world still follows. Europe will always lead.


Asia. I understand that Europe could be in competition for first place, but to put North America in front of Asia, you must have not been taught much of Asian history. Really Africa should come in close to top, but that's not the point right now. Now obviously there are much more diverse and beautiful things about my dear Asia, India, it's overflowing tradition, Korea and Japan, with their own unique style yet so similar, Mongolia, the land of the horses, wild and free, strong and proud. But allow me to talk about China. China is one of the oldest civilizations on Earth, and its traditions and cultures are beautiful, and missed. East Asia borrowed their traditions of this Ancient country, and I believe I am not wrong in saying that you would not find more extravagant clothing anywhere else. Traditionally they have always been respectful, proud and honourable, and they even try to kill the enemy as respectful as possible, to keep the body intact. Aside from that, they have always been ...more

From Third World to Newly Industrialized Economy to First world. Sweet, savoury and sour. Ancient, classical and new. Asia should be number one because we have it all.

From Angkor what to Singapore, Bali to Kuala Lumpur. Asia is a continent of contrast and true diversity no other continent has.

No European food can match Asian cuisine, no European city can be as clean as Singapore or Tokyo, no European mountain are as tall as Everest or Fuji, no European trees are beautiful as Sakura or Rafflesia. No European spices are as variety as Asian spices.

Asia is the best in the world. Still not convinced? We don't have tipping system.

With China and India slowly coming out of a dark age, this century would eventually result in the shift of global power away from North America to Asia, which is pretty epic

Japan in itself is the best place in the world - but then there's also China, Taiwan, Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore, India, UAE... I did like going to Saudi Arabia, it was a great experience to experience another culture... But it's not the best country ever laugh out loud

I agree with you but saying Japan is the best place in the world is just plain racist. It's like you were looking down on the other countries saying "but then there's also". Nah man don't live with a mindset that there is a best country

North America

A disgraceful continent with the worst countries. Mexico has stupid illegal immigrant who want to come into the United States, while Mexico doesn't allow Guatemalans into their country. Mexico is hypocritical, and throws a tantrum when they have to let in Guatemalan immigrants. Very dangerous countries such as Barbados and Trinidad and Tobago. Poor countries like Haiti. United States is a wasteland too. In the USA electing presidents is flawed. Democrats are stupid. Democrats may take over America one day. Democrats say that illegals should come in and have free healthcare. America doesn't have secure borders so it's easy for illegals to come in. In the constitution it says our nation will provide for the common defense. We are not doing that because stupid illegal immigrants bring in drugs and dangerous people. School system is also flawed. America and canadians focus on math and English. They don't bother to learn about different cultures and religions until later on, which is ...more

The best continent to live in is Europe then North America then Australia then Zealandia then South America

North America, What can I say about in my opinion the greatest continent in the world. Here's why:
One: THEY HAVE EVERYTHING IN THIS ONE CONTINENT, sunshine in Mexico, Snow in Canada, and business everywhere. This is also the only continent in the world with true big fresh water lakes, The Great Lakes. The U.S has the gambling city of the world on which continent: North America, Most of the natural sports in the world are played in Canada and the U.S (American football, Hockey, Baseball, Basketball, wrestling, tennis, curling, skiing and so much more. Canada is one of the most friendly countries in the whole world. It is home to a perfect amount of people on the continent, not to low(ex. Oceania) not to high(e.x Asia) They have some of the best theme parks in the world along side some of the best great natural wonders of the world. Most people in North America speak English and whats the international language of the world... English. The largest Army in the world is on this ...more

Forget the people for a second. North America is by far the most beautiful continent on Earth in terms of nature. The land is amazing. Canada as a whole is beautiful, along with Alaska and other US states, not to mention the tropical climate of the Caribbean and Mexico.


1. Civilization started in Africa - Egypt and others as is referenced in many historical records

2. Which country on earth exist without taping or is still trying hard to get something worthwhile from Africa?

3. If any country or continent is claiming to be the best because it has colonized any country or continent, what is the purpose of colonization? To gain the good things of that land which the colonial master does not have or have but not enough to help it survival. So it have to wonder to other places to use force or whatever means available to gain from that land. Is that what make the colonial masters the best the best? Capital "NO". The person or persons I know starts things from what he or she has and help others through it. That is the best person. like Africans Who never wonder about in the name of colonizing or using force, destroyed humans and take away what they have to enrich themselves; "living life at the expense of another man's life or other peoples ...more

The 'Poor, Dangerous Africa' Is just the media.

1. Non polluted - Whilst certain cities in central Africa are polluted, The wildlife is clean

2. Animals - Beautiful animals ranging from small birds to giant mammals

3. Peace - Yes a few dead wars but Ukraine, Afghanistan, and Parts of the USA are currently in Conflict as well

4. Freedom

5. South Africa, Morocco, Namibia, Botswana, and More countries are way richer than you think

FYI : I'm Half European and Half African

Africa people have a amazing sense humour, friendly people,world class beaches and the world prettiest people in the world they have beautiful features, skin colour and nice curly hair.

Africa is where my parents were born plus the first homo sapiens was there

South America

Guatemala is also a beautiful place and when you go there you would see how poor they live but being poor doesn't matter to them all they care about is family. When they are with family they smile so big because happiness is all that matters to them. They might be poor but they have really good hearts and they know how to have fun without having as much money. They know how to stay happy and how to celebrate with not just family but basically with all the neigh and people around.

South America has every landscape imaginable, from deserts, to glaciers, to forests, to jungles, to ancient ruins, prairies, mountains, beaches, access to Antarctica,etc. The people are among the friendliest you can find, very welcoming. Most of the happiest countries on Earth are in South and lower Central America. The standard of living varies from completely rural to as cosmopolitan as any major global metropolis. Furthermore, it's not as expensive as most other continents so you can travel much more with your money.

Far most beautiful continent!

Ignorant, Guatemala is not even in South America...


Australia is the best place to live it is save beautiful and amazing

Australia have some of the world most unique animals, cultural and environmental landmarks.

I live in Australia and believe that it is the beautifulest continent on planet earth

The most beautiful, the most liveable, the most peaceful, fantastic cities and towns, fantastic wild country areas! What do you need more?


Well it has the lowest population, coldest temperatures, highest penguin population, lowest crime rate, no education, no money(which is amazing!) highest unemployment rate, beautiful sights, and very long and very short days, depending on the time of year.
Is this a place you want to live?
Well if you like to be alone, don’t mind the cold, love penguins, hate crime (I do), hate school, hate money, hate jobs, love beautiful sights, and love long and short days, this place is for you!

The most important continent. If it disappears, so do most of us.

A place where there is almost no human life or countries is higher than Australia

Non polluted country in the world


Oceania is a region and Australia is an island continent within that region. I should know - I live there! I suggest a number of people here go back to school.

Oceania is a REGION, not a continent so it should not be on the list. Australia is an ISLAND CONTINENT.

This is an amazing continent. Australia and New Zealand are some of the safest, happiest and most beautiful countries in the world. Also the surrounding islands such as Papua New Guinea are culturaly and naturally beautiful. This continent has everything.

To all you ignorant losers who think Oceania is a country or think Australia is a continent, crack a book or go back to primary school. Oceania (Australasia) includes Australia, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea and the Pacific Islands. Australia isn't a continent because it doesn't have separate countries inside it.

Definition of a Continent is a large landmass. Antarctica does not have official countries in it but it's still a continent. Australia is a continent. - LiteralCringe


The first continent. When the world had peace. No continents, no countries just happiness, well, at least before the plate movement.

All 7 continents in one.

It's not the first continent but one of the older ones. Unless you are a YEC/maybe old earth creationist then there were no humans on Pangaea but animals like dinosaurs instead. All 7 continents plus India which was a continent at one time.

Pangaea is a theory that is said to be separated over hundreds of millions of years.



3 in 1 continent. The major continet from South Afrca to Italy and to Japan.

The Contenders



It’s cool


Europe+Asia makes most beautiful place on earth in every term.Both have rich history

It will use Euro single currency.

I love Euraisa I love the country turkey!

It's Europe+Asia the two most beautiful cont nents with rich culture, art and architecture
and exotic food...heavenly


The Old Red Sandstone Continent! I wish this thing still existed. It's a real treat for me, liking my plate tectonics. If it still existed we could see America bordering Britain



Your America!


Because Pangaea was just too big.



Laurasia is far superior to Maryasia but not quite as pleasant as Annasia.

Pangaea Ultima

Another word for the Mediterranean region and the countries that exits within it. It was also what remains of the old Roman Empire as Pangaea means "far-stretched" land in Latin and Ultima means "final". Pangaea Ultima include countries like Italy, Algeria, Egypt and Greece...

If so then this is the best. Tunisia, Italy, Spain..


This is a continent that is now mostly underwater. The only parts left is the land the land that makes up New Zealand.

What this, is this suppose to be a thing with New Zealand or Denmark or something?

My my my my Continent!


Look it up.
