Cingshueiyan Scenic Area
Taiwan

Cingshueiyan Scenic Area sits at the foothills of the southern section of Phoenix Mt. Pellucid spring gushing from the rock crevices lends it the beautiful name. During the Japanese Colonial Period, it was among the eight scenic attractions in Kaohsiung and famous local spot as well. Climbers’ entrance is located in the rear of Cingshuei Temple. Cingshueiyan overlooks the scenery of Linyuan District as well as Linyuan Industrial Zone in sunny days. Geologically speaking, the Scenic Area is classified as uplifted coral limestone with abundant fossil content like trilobites, scallops, etc. Geological characteristics result in caves spreading throughout the entire rock area. Among which, Longpan Cave, a ruin of the Japanese colonial period, enjoys high popularity. It’s about six kilometers long, winding deep to reach Cingshuei Cave in half an hour, promising to satisfy the curiosity of explorers. Other attractions still include Lingquan Pool and red cedars.

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.
