308 Highland, situated at the junction of Neimen District in Kaohsiung City and Zuojhen and Longci Districts in Tainan City, offers a vantage point for a broad view of a spectacular landscape. People can take a close look at the badlands and see the faraway Jianan Plain and coastline from here. The landscape is most stunning at 5 in the morning and at sunset. When the first rays of the rising sun touch the sky, the thick mist and fog hang over the mountains like a sea of clouds. At dusk, the sky turns rosy and blends with the nearby scenery. It was said that a woman used to wait at this highlands for her beloved to return from the sea every day during the Japanese colonial period; therefore, it obtained the name “Wang Ge Tai” (Lover-Awaiting Terrace). In addition to its high-elevation scenery, free range chicken is a well-known delicacy here.

This panorama was taken in Taiwan, Asia

This is an overview of 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.
