Captured at the end of a road between tall buildings, the setting sun presents a superb spectacle. To spotlight the beauty of Taiwan’s city sunsets, Chunghwa Post has offered a set of two stamps. Gongyi Road in Taichung forms the backdrop for the spectacle of the setting sun in the NT$8 stamp whilst Qingnian First to Second Road in Kaohsiung is seen in the NT$35 stamp. As the setting sun is about to touch the horizon, the afterglow of its rays shines between the tall buildings lining the roads to offer a glorious sight.
