As part of the Taiwan Scenery Postage Stamps series (which was launched in 2016), Chunghwa Post has released a new set of these stamps on famous scenic sites in Yunlin County, as described below: 1. Xiluo Bridge (NT$8): This red bridge crosses the Zhuoshui River at the border of Yunlin and Changhua counties and is 1,939 meters long. When it was completed in 1952, it was the longest bridge in the Far East. With its international renown and historical value, it will forever remain an important landmark for the people of Xiluo. 2. Beigang Chaotian Temple (NT$8): Located in Yunlin’s Beigang Township, this temple was first constructed in 1694, during the rule of Kangxi in the Qing dynasty. It was repeatedly expanded in the more than three centuries that have followed. Majestic and palatial, the temple attracts believers from all across Taiwan for its annual celebrations of Mazu’s birthday, which includes a pilgrimage during which devotees carry the deity in a procession. 3. Wannian Canyon in Caoling: (NT$15): Located in Caoling Geopark in Yunlin’s Gukeng, this 500-meter-long V-shaped canyon created by erosion over many millennia features rapids, deep pools, and small waterfalls. Its walls are colorfully mottled with moss and mineral deposits, which add to the canyon’s beauty. 4. Taiping Old Street in Douliu (NT$15): Located in Yunlin’s Douliu City, this 600-meter-long street features Baroque-style buildings constructed nearly a century ago. The various changes made to these buildings’ appearances display the history of architecture in Taiwan over the last 100 years. Personal greeting stamps without marginal inscriptions have been released along with the stamps, which feature a full set of “Taiwan Scenery Postage Stamps — Yunlin County” with printed imitation perforations. These customizable stamps are suited to collect.
