From the issue’s information page on the Chunghwa Post website:

Continuing the series of Taiwan Scenery postage stamps depicting Taitung County, Tainan City, Matsu, Taichung City, Penghu County, Yilan County and Hualien County begun in 2016, Chunghwa Post is offering a further set of four stamps featuring outstanding places of interest in Pingtung County. The stamps are described below:

1. Dapeng Bay Bridge (NT$6): This cable-stayed bridge crosses the only outlet to the sea from Dapeng Bay. To meet the development of yachting in the lagoon, the bridge has one section that can be raised. This is its special point of interest.

2. Kenting National Park (NT$6): Located at the southern tip of Taiwan and surrounded by the sea on three sides, Kenting National Park, a famous tourist spot and the first National Park in the country, is one of the few such parks to include both land and sea.

3. Little Liuqiu Flower Vase Rock (NT$8): Situated on the north of Liuqiu Island, also called Little Liuqiu, and shaped like a flower vase, Flower Vase Rock is part of a coral reef. Its fame comes from its proximity to the main harbor of the island.

4. Hengchun Old Town (NT$15): Hengchun Old Town, a well-preserved Qing dynasty town, is a national monument. It has four gates, of which the restored south gate still retains its gate tower and gateway.

(1) First Day Cover (162 mm × 114 mm): NT$2 apiece
