HONG KONG - Asian markets climbed Thursday, boosted by bargain hunting and a positive lead from Wall Street that came despite a worse-than-expected first quarter contraction in the US economy. 

Tokyo rose 0.27%, or 41.88 points to 15,308.49, Sydney jumped 1.15%, or 62.29 points, to 5464.3 and Seoul added 0.67%, or 13.28 points, at 1,995.05.

Shanghai ended 0.65%, or 13.18 points, higher at 2,038.68 and Hong Kong rallied 1.45%, or 331.13 points, to 23,197.83.
