Riverbank Cafés of Love River
Kaohsiung

The successful reconstruction of Love River and the beautified surroundings both add to what Love River already has to offer.The same scenic elements, while combined with a unique atmosphere, create a unique charisma that attracts both foreign and domestic tourists.

Cafés dotted both sides of the river, and the Ripple Café and Sunshine Café becomes yet more romantic after nightfall.The coffee aroma in the air mingles with the lights and the sound of the waves; street artists perform their trades; lovers huddled together with pleasant Jazz music floating all-around – all of this gives visitors the illusion of being on the river banks of Paris.It is certainly an indulgence to slowly sip a cup of coffee on the banks of Love River – such is the favorite pastime of young couples.Yet one can also gather a group of friends, taking in the cool breeze of the river while sipping a pot of fragrant tea.With conversations flowing freely as the imagination takes flight, who can say that there is no paradise on the earth?  Just walk along the music hall on the west bank of the Love River, pass the Cisian Bridge and one comes to the “Love River Café”, a great spot specifically created for the leisurely tea-sipping citizens and tourists.

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.
