Ke Ga Ligthouse is a wonderful piece of architecture designed by French architect Snavat in 1897 with a view to protect ships from the dangers of reefs near Ke Ga Cape in the South China Sea. The lighthouse is 65 m (214 ft) above the sea level and houses both a literally head-spinning spiral steps (app. 184 steps) to the top and a powerful signal light (app. 2000W). The signal light draws its power from a set of solar batteries situated at the base of the lighthouse. Atop the lighthouse one can marvel a picturesque bird’s eye view on the island which reminds a lot bizarre natural landscapes of computer games (MYST and Riven, for example). Observe this pano and enjoy the unique experience! Info: See the one-story building below? There you can purchase an entrance ticket to the lighthouse (the price is 20 000 dong or 1 US dollar per person) and become a temporary lighthouse owner with a personal key to it.

これはAsia領域の概要です

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.
