Asian Geographic JUNIOR Issue 3 - 2016

In ASIAN Geographic Junior's "Living Legends" we take you on a journey of exploration through Asia's incredible cultural legacies; from ancient lost civilisations that mysteriously disappeared to ground-breaking inventions that have shaped the world as we know it today. Find out how to become a black-belt master of Kung Fu, let your mind soar with dragons, or discover the Asian monks that have gained real-life superpowers. With a mix of fantastic stories, activities and of course, never ending fun - we're about to explore Asia's exciting and enduring heritage in a way that's never been done before.
