About This Quiz

The world has seven continents, each of them filled with a number of countries and cities (maybe with the exception of Antarctica). And each of these countries is known for something that is only special to them. Whether it be Mount Fuji in Japan or Chinese monuments, or the wildlife in Kenya to the city skylines of the United States, just about every country can be identified by something. 

It's easy to name countries if we show you a picture of their monuments. For instance, you can easily identify India if you see the Taj Mahal, or the United Arab Emirates if we show you the Burj Khalifa. But what if we don't show you those things? What if we give you clues, but those clues are emoji? Do you think you could guess the country then?

If you're on social media often (Snapchat, Instagram, and Facebook), if you use lots of instant messaging apps, like Whats App and Skype, or if you're just familiar with emoji in general, then you should be able to put two and two together to correctly guess the country we're trying to clue you in on. So, are you ready to see if you can ace this quiz? Let's get started!
