The Mon Wooden Bridge in Songkla Buri
Thailand

The view over Sangkhla, from the southern end of the Mon wooden bridge. This is the centre of the Mon tribe community, always crowded with locals and tourists. The border to Myanmar is a few kilometers away (Three Pagoda Pass).

This view covers where three rivers meet. The activity on and in the water is quite amazing. The houses on pontoons - often just made from bamboo - are constantly moved around, and longtail boats criss crossing the waters, and taking tourists to the sunken temple (which can barely be seen in the far distance of this picture). Local kids dive from the bridges and laughter is heard everywhere.

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.
