The Fongshan River and its tributary Caogong Canal flows through the old Fongshan City at a length of 20 km, and has driven the development of Fongshan area. The upstream flows through Fongshan City and converges with the downstream at Cianjhen Dist. all the way into the Port of Kaohsiung. However, household and industrial sewage collected at the basin had kept residents away from this metropolitan river. In 2003 the Kaohsiung City Government initiated a five-phase dredging project. The project included land recovery, river water quality treatment, dredging, transfer of riverbank occupants, and landscape improvement. Now, along with historical sites in the neighborhood, the Fongshan River basin has become a waterfront living environment for citizens.

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.
