AWS Region vs Availability Zone

AWS Region is a geographical area. Each region consists of two or more availability zones.

AWS Availability Zone simply a data center. It can be a collection of data centers. Each region has more than one availability zones. They might be placed in the same area but in different locations. So, if a disaster happens in a one availability zone, we can still use the other one.
