The Cijin_Gushan Ferry  connects the Cijin and Gushan Districts of Kaohsiung, Taiwan. It is popular with tourists visiting the attractions of Cijin Island. Despite the fact that there are numerous clearly posted signs in Chinese, English, and internationally recognisable graphic symbols, local users of the ferry routinely smoke while in transit. A ride on the Ferry costs fifteen NTD per one-way ride. It doesn't take longer than twenty minutes to get to Cijin, an island which has seafood restaurants, traditional markets and a beach for tourists.

高雄旗津是個長條形離島,與高雄小港區相望,兩地有海底隧道相通,但仍維持小渡輪服務,成為一個特式交通工具,大街上海鮮檔林立,吸引不少遊客登臨觀光。

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.
