The Far East is a geographical term in English that usually refers to East Asia (including Northeast Asia ) and Southeast Asia. South Asia is sometimes also included for economic and cultural reasons. The term "Far East" came into use in European geopolitical discourse in the 12th century, denoting the Far East as the "farthest" of the three "easts," beyond the Near East and the Middle East. (The Russian Far East, part of North Asia, is also sometimes considered part of the Far East.)
