Kaohsiung Port Station
The Kaohsiung Port Station, constructed in 1900, was the first train station in Kaohsiung as well as the final destination of the north-south railway at that time. The over a hundred-year-old station had stopped functioning and was transformed in 2010 into the Takao Railway Museum that exhibits antique objects used in the rail station. An old-time steam locomotive is exhibited outdoors beside the recreational plaza. Visitors of all ages are invited to get a sense of olden-days lifestyle at the rail station in Kaohsiung. The old rail track, installed with wooden planks, is turned into bicycle path and linked to the bicycle path network which then connects to the harbor.

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.
