Port of Kaohsiung
Kaohsiung

The Port of Kaohsiung was originally a wide and calm saline lake, and the area which connects the saline lake and ocean is now the first port. Gushan (Chaishan) and Cihoushan are on the two sides of the first port, and thus this part of the Port is only 100 meters in width.

There were originally reef rocks in the waterway, which made it very difficult for large ships to pass. As a result, the Port of Kaohsiung was not chosen to be a main trade port when the Dutchmen evaluated the ports along the coast. When the Harbor Construction Project began in 1908, the reef rocks were removed, water depth of the port was increased, and many facilities were also established on the reclaimed land. Therefore, the Port finally began to develop and reached its prosperity, and became the largest international trade harbor in Taiwan. It also used to be the world’s third largest container port.

More About Asia

Asia is the biggest continent on Earth, a darling little gem floating around in space.Hm, what is Asia? Who's in on it?China and India are safe bets for Asian nations. Korea, Japan, Thailand, you're fine.Europe? No. Europe would sort of be on the "Asian continent" if not for those pesky Ural mountains dividing things up in the middle, and then also the whole lineage of kings and wealth and nations and the EU and all that "give me my respect" stuff.Russia would probably be happiest as its own continent, so for now we'll leave it in "Eurasia" and just hope the natural gas supplies keep flowing.Pakistan and Afghanistan are dang close to Asia, but politically they show up in "Middle East" news stories an awful lot. Verdict: Eurasia.I guess we'll actually have to consider everything from Turkey on eastward to be "Eurasian", although the moniker seems overlappitory of the territory.The Asian economy is now officially raging like a wild furnace of lava that consumes everything in its path. Japan has had the largest individual economy in Asia for decades, but it is forecast that both India and China will outstrip Japan within twenty years.China is the largest holder of United States debt and is positioned to become the world's next superpower, provided that Godzilla doesn't return and decide to stomp everybody back into the Shang Dynasty.Text by Steve Smith.
