Two years ago, the annual Taiwan Lantern Festival was held in Nantou County’s Zhongxing New Village. The colorful lanterns are now long gone, but a large wall specially created for the festival still stands, covered with images of postal stamps. The wall has made the Zhongxing Post Office, located beside the grounds where the festival was staged, a local tourist attraction. A total of 300 stamps are spread over the wall display, issued over a span of 60 years by Chunghwa Post Co. Among them is a commemorative NT$2 stamp released on June 18, 1960 to mark a visit to Taiwan by then U.S. President Dwight Eisenhower.
