Buddhism grew with one practioner at a time.

The Buddha's followers -- those who learned from him directly -- worked to keep his teachings as true to his original intention as they could, and (just like he did) walked great distances to share them. Over time, person-to-person, the teachings spread largely because they don't require any faith at all -- once a student begins to understand what's being taught, and put it into practice with diligence, the fact that the teachings work to relieve suffering is enough to make them spread.

Buddhism can be practiced ANYWHERE in the world. It is easier to practice buddhism in the eastern countries however buddhism is now starting to grow in America and other countries over in the west. There is no set place where buddhism should be practiced because it is more of a way of life, not as much a religion.
