“Postcrossing” is the name of a website dedicated to the exchange of postcards across the world. It enables lovers of postcards to exchange cards with people from other countries. To advertise Taiwan’s cultural specialities, Chunghwa Post is planning a set of four stamps. A detailed description of the stamps follows:
1. NT$6 stamp: Depicting the life of ordinary people in Taiwan, the stamp shows a traditional breakfast noodle stall with its food and the customers enjoying a tasty breakfast.
2. NT$10 stamp: Depicting Taiwan’s traditional folk religion, the stamp shows a procession with a statue on a feast day as well as the protecting deity, Techno Prince Nezha.
3. NT$11 stamp: This stamp shows some of the important endemic species of Taiwan in dynamic poses: Formosan Black Bear, Kingfisher, Melodious Laughing Thrush, Crested Goshawk, Formosan Pangolin, Ring-necked Pheasant and Sika Deer.
4. NT$12 stamp: The stamp shows the little Alishan Forest Train as it puffs through the forest. The railway is one of the mainstays of tourism in Taiwan.
