Pulai Sitoushe Battle Road
Taiwan
Pulai, formerly named Balai, used to be the settlement of the indigenous Tsou tribe. During the colonial period, the Japanese built what they called the War Road along the ridges of Meilong Mountain in order to control the indigenous peoples who were strongly anti-Japanese. This Pulai Stream Xitoushe War Road located on the watershed of Laonong and Baolai Rivers in the Liugui District of Kaohsiung City is 3 kilometers long. It encircles an industrial road and orchards and it takes about an hour to walk around it. It is lined with prune trees on both sides.

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.
