The Lovers Suspension Bridge located at 2.5 km mark of Highway 132 was erected in the aftermath of Typhoon Morakot, which pummeled Taiwan in August 2009. The bridge spans across Zhuokou River and has a sweeping view of a stream, a waterfall, and pools. It is 10-minute walk upstream along the trail that leads to the famous Lovers Valley Falls.
The waterfall in the valley has five layers. Walk across the bridge and you reach the first layer. Go straight up from the left side of the first layer and you reach the second layer in 10 minutes. Under the bridge there are camping lots and fishing areas. Next to the waterfall is a pavilion where visitors can rest and enjoy the scenic view. It is indeed a resort for visitors to appreciate the waterfall, go mountain climbing and river tracing.
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.
