Chengcing Lake Scenic Area
The Chengcing Lake located in Niaosong District in Kaohsiung, was originally used as an industrial water source. It was originally named Dabei Lake, and built in 1954. It re-opened in 1959 as a scenic area. In 1963, former President Chiang Kai-shek saw how clear its water was and renamed it Chengcing Lake. Also known as the "West Lake of Taiwan," it has a total area of about 103 hectares, and this includes scenic and recreation areas, the lake itself, and the water source, which is not open to the public. In addition, an official residence that had been a favorite get-away of former President Chiang is now open to the public every Sunday.

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.
