Guanyin Lake, formerly called Governor Lake, is located in Renwu District, Kaohsiung. Former President Chiang Kai-shek visited the lake in January 20, 1969, and stunned by the beautiful mountain and scenery, he renamed it to Guanyin Lake. The lake has a total area of 142 hectares with inner and outer parts. The outer part of the lake is shallower and easy to dry out. The inner part of the lake is deeper and wider and clearer water. The lake is one of the water sources for the Renwu area and local residents enjoy fishing and hiking amid its pleasant and greenish scenery.

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.
