The Main Stadium
Kaohsiung

With an area of 19 hectares, the Main Stadium constructed for the World Games 2009 was designed and inspected upon completion by the internationally renowned architect, Toyo Ito.Unlike traditionally designed stadiums, the Main Stadium is the world’s first arena with an opening top.The spiral-shaped structure and the solar photoelectric panels on top roof make the stadium an aesthetic combination of art and sports, as well as bringing in energy for sustainable development.As the sun shines on the stadium, it looks just like a giant spiral dragon welcoming top athletes from all over the world to the green and ecological city of northern Kaohsiung.

The Main Stadium is located at the intersection of Jhonghai Road and Jyunsiao Road in Zuoying District, and visitors may arrive by taking MRT and getting off at the Main Stadium Station.There are recreational and cultural attractions in the surrounding areas of the stadium, including the Banpingshan Ecological Park, Lianchihtan (Lotus Pond) Scenic Area, Kaohsiung Confucius Temple and Fongshan Old Town in Zuoying.The Wannian Festival held at the Lotus Pond every year is a major folklore and religious festival in Kaohsiung.The beautiful mountain and lake views at different seasons and the holding of a variety of folklore festivals have already made the entire lake area the most ecological and cultural flavored area in Kaohsiung.Northern Kaohsiung has become a healthy and sustainable city of LOHAS ever since the stadium joined with concepts of health and sports.

Mer om 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.
