Taiwan Scenery Postage Stamps — Hualien County
Following on its releases of Taiwan Scenery postage stamps on Taitung County, Tainan City, Matsu, Taichung City, Penghu County and Yilan County starting from 2016, Chunghwa Post is planning a new set of four stamps featuring famous sites and activities of Hualien County that will be issued on August 28, 2019. Descriptions of the designs follow:

1. Sea of Rapeseed Flowers in the East Rift Valley (NT$6): The East Rift Valley stretches from the Hualien Plain in the north to the Taitung Plain in the south. It is a long and narrow longitudinal valley squeezed between the Central and Coastal Mountain Ranges. Every winter the blooming rapeseed blossoms in the valley make for a beautiful “sea of flowers.”

2. Qixingtan (NT$6): Qixingtan is a beautiful crescent-shaped bay. The bay's crystal blue waters make for rich and impressive natural scenery. The bay's scenic area has foot trails, a pavilion along the shore, the Sunrise Building, the Star Watching Plaza, and other facilities that visitors can enjoy under the blue sky and by the blue waters.

3. Xiuguluan River Rafting (NT$12): The Xiuguluan River originates on Mt. Xiuguluan and has abundant water flow throughout the year. The river cuts through majestic canyons filled with impressive boulders and thrilling rapids, which make river rafting on the creek a popular water activity in eastern Taiwan.

4. Taroko Swallow Grotto (NT$12): Swallow Grotto is a famous tourist attraction at Taroko National Park. It is so named because during the spring and summer one can often see many swallows foraging in the Liwu River valley. The sight and sound of them in flight is spectacular.

This set of stamps was designed by Delta Design Corporation and printed by China Color Printing Co., Ltd. in color offset. A first-day cover, folders with and without crystal mounts and a loose-leaf album page will be released along with the stamps and will go on sale on August 26, 2019. A pre-cancelled FDC, with a NT$6-denominated stamp or the full set of stamps, will go on sale on August 28, 2019, the stamps' date of issuance.

To purchase the relative philatelic products, please go directly to the post office branches, Postal Museum or order on line at https://stamp.post.gov.tw.
