China: Kulangsu

On 29th July I got two postcards from China.

One of them shows an aerial view of Kulangsu. Kulangsu is a small island off the coast of Xiamen. In 1903 Kulangsu was established as international settlement and became an important window for the cultural exchanges between China and the foreigners. It is especially known for its mixture of different architectural styles. Today it is one of China's most visited tourist attractions. Last month Kulangsu was added to the UNESCO World Heritage List.


Stamp:
Shouxi Lake (from set of two) (issued 25-11-1998)
It is a joint issue with Switzerland.


Thank You very much Wei Tianyi!
