Every Friday we’ll be testing your knowledge of world trivia with a devilishly difficult quiz on a variety of travel-themed topics. This week it’s all about sizing up countries.

We’ll show you two countries from around the world and you have to pick which of the two is larger in terms of total land area (stats taken from Encyclopedia Britannica). We’ve also included images to help, but these are not to scale. Can you score higher than your friends and colleagues?



Find more quiz questions just like this in our book Lonely Planet’s Ultimate Travel Quiz, the perfect companion for any trip.
