Continuing the series of Taiwan Scenery Postage Stamps begun in 2016, Chunghwa Post has released a new set of these stamps on four famous sites in Kinmen County. Descriptions of their designs follow:
1. Kinmen Bridge (NT$8): Connecting Kinmen to Lieyu, Kinmen Bridge is the first deep-water sea-crossing bridge in Taiwan. For the convenience of residents and tourists alike the bridge was opened for use on October 30, 2022.
2. Chen Jing-lan Western-style House (NT$8): In Jinhu Township, Kinmen County. An elegant portico runs round the house, the largest Western-style house in Kinmen and of great historical significance.
3. Shanhou Folk Culture Village (NT$9): Situated in Jinsha Township, Kinmen County. With its back to the hill and facing the sea, the village is set out in perfect order as a showpiece of traditional architectural crafts. It is a complete village of old houses in a perfect state of preservation.
4. Dadan Island (NT$20): Dadan Island belongs to Kinmen's Lieyu Township. The unyielding courage of the military is recorded in the huge slogan on the island: Undaunted I defend Dadan; Isolated but no Orphan! In 2019 the island was opened to tourists to come and explore its past mysteries.
