Top Ten Least Famous Asian Countries

I made a list of the least-known african countries yesterday so now it's time for the least famous asian countries, without further ado, let's start!

The Top Ten

1 Timor-Leste East Timor, officially the Democratic Republic of Timor-Leste, is a sovereign state in Maritime Southeast Asia. It comprises the eastern half of the island of Timor.

Believe it or not, A friend told me that 'Timor' means 'East' in Bahasa Indonesia, and as 'Leste' means 'East' in Portugese, the country would mean 'East East'.

East Timor, a country in the south east of Asia, a very small country! In fact the country in on the east side of the island Timor of Indonesia! So it's no suprise it's forgotten, fun fact, in swedish, this country is more known as Östtimor, and ö is the last letter in the swedish alphabet, so on country lists in swedish this country would be at last - darthvadern

2 Brunei Brunei, officially the Nation of Brunei, the Abode of Peace, is a sovereign state located on the north coast of the island of Borneo in Southeast Asia.

Brunei and Bhutan are two countries I for some reason "ship", and the lesser known country of those two is definitely Brunei! A super small country that lies at Malaysia with an excellent flag - darthvadern

3 Bahrain

Many people know of Qatar, but less people know about its smaller neighbour Bahrain, I'm comparing those two becuase not only are they neighbour countries, their flags are almost the same except Qatar's flag has brown instead of red and there's more "teeth" than five on that one. Also one of the safer middle eastern countries - darthvadern

4 Yemen Yemen, officially known as the Republic of Yemen, is an Arab country in Western Asia, occupying the southwestern to the southern end of the Arabian Peninsula.

So we know all those arab countries whose flags are have the red-white-black pattern and a symbol in the middle, howver, weirdly enough, the one "red-white-black" national flag that doesn't have a symbol on it is the least known of them! Yemen is a country to the south of Saudi Arabia and lies close to Somalia, Djibouti and Eritrea, three countries in Africa - darthvadern

5 Kyrgyzstan Kyrgyzstan, officially the Kyrgyz Republic, formerly known as Kirghizia, is a landlocked country located in Central Asia.

Oh yes, central asia, probably the most forgotten part of Asia, countries not many people know of! Kazakstan is probably the most known due to being so big and the movie know as Borat, Turkmenistan is somewhat known for its insane leaders, Uzbekistan is known for history, and even Tajikistan is somehow known due to the ridicoulus Emomalii Rahmon, but Kyrgyzstan seemingly has nothing that people know about, that's strange because I know more things about Kyrgyzstan than about Kazakstan. - darthvadern

6 Oman Oman, officially the Sultanate of Oman, is an Arab country in the southeastern coast of the Arabian Peninsula.

Oman is a very forgotten country, the only reason people might know about Oman is because the swedish DJ Avici died young in the capital Muskat. But other than that not many people know about it - darthvadern

7 Kuwait

A very small country in the middle east whose capital is also known Kuwait, the only reason people might know something about it is if they have played Quest For Glory II: Trial By Fire where the guards of one of the cities always say "kuwait a minute" instead of "wait a minute", but even then barely any people have played Sierra Entertainment games - darthvadern

8 Tajikistan Tajikistan, officially the Republic of Tajikistan, is a mountainous, landlocked country in Central Asia with an estimated 8 million people in 2013, and an area of 143,100 km2.

Other than Emomalii Rahmon this country is on par with Kyrgyzstan with being the most forgotten central asian countries! - darthvadern

9 Laos Laos, officially the Lao People's Democratic Republic (LPDR), or commonly referred to its colloquial name of Muang Lao is a landlocked country in the heart of the Indochinese peninsula of Mainland Southeast Asia, bordered by Myanmar (Burma) and China to the northwest, Vietnam to the east, Cambodia to more.

A country in south-east asia squeezed in between Thailand and Vietname, very overlooked by its neighbours with a very unique flag - darthvadern

10 Bhutan Bhutan, officially the Kingdom of Bhutan, is a landlocked country in South Asia at the eastern end of the Himalayas.

A country similar to China and Nepa in terms of religion and a very mountainy country as well - darthvadern

The Contenders

11 Jordan Jordan, officially the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, is an Arab kingdom in Western Asia, on the East Bank of the Jordan River.
