Stamp Expo: Stamp wall in Nantou

A wall of stamps at the Chung Hsing Post Office in Nantou County has become a popular local attraction since its creation two years ago.

The wall decorated with the patterns of more than 300 postage stamps was created as part of the 2014 Taiwan Lantern Festival, which took place at the Chung Hsing New Village in Nantou.

It was retained after the festival's conclusion and continues to keep its lights on between 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. every night.

The glamorous scene has been listed among the top 12 attractions in Chung Hsing New Village.

The stamps featured on the wall were selected from those issued by the Chunghwa Post Co. over the past six decades.

Among them is a commemorative stamp denominated at NT$2 that was issued on June 18, 1960 to mark a visit to Taiwan by then U.S. President Dwight Eisenhower.

Others include commemorative stamps denominated at NT$3 and NT$0.4 to mark the opening of Taiwan's Central Cross-Island Highway on May 9, 1960 and another commemorative stamp denominated at NT$0.8 to mark the 10th Armed Forces Day on Sept. 3, 1964.
