After going underground through Banpinshan, the MRT train enters an elevated section with a better scenic for its passengers.The MRT train then arrives at R17, World Games Station, designed as a lion lying on the sea.
The design of R17 Station is entrusted to Wood Janssen Inc.; the design  combines construction design and public art to present the concept of broad public art work. Opposite to the naval port, the steel line presenting the full sail is used as the main design concept for the characteristic of sustainable development by the MRT and Kaohsiung City. The green construction design is also incorporated to elevate roof structure and skylight window for natural, environmentally friendly , and energy-saving effects.The image of public art expresses the beauty of natural trees and mountains in a digital way. The warm sunshine in Kaohsiung gives more color to the public art work, looking like a forest in sky.Visitors, thus, are allured by the eye-catching blue sky, white clouds, and green mountains.

This panorama was taken in Kaohsiung, Asia

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.
