East: the strangest places in Game of Thrones?

62 000
What strange places lie to the far east and south of Westeros? What are the dangers of Sothoryos and the Basilisk Isles? What lurks in the Shivering Sea? What does the Great Empire of the Dawn and the Five Forts reveal about the Long Night and Azor Ahai? What are the dark mysteries of Asshai?

On a more serious note, notice how a lot of this is prefaced with "it's been said". There's probably plenty of weird shit going on in the far reaches of the ASOIAF setting, but there's also probably a lot of legend mixing with fact.

There are a lot of similarities ive noticed between the elder scrolls and game of thrones/a song of ice and fire in both there is a western continent that you become farmiliar with quite quickly and a larger mysterious eastern continent which was bareley explored with a million islands and kingdoms inspired by ancient china in it with strange races.
