Travel stamps

Collecting souvenir stamps from historical sites, memorials and museums has become a popular activity.

Jing'an launched the service at its tourism service center at 63 Anyi Road in 2023, with the first 13 stamps of bridges across the Suzhou Creek, such as Wuzhen Road Bridge, Zhejiang Road Bridge and Xinzha Road Bridge. Each bridge has a story to tell.

This year, 12 new stamps of the district's historical and cultural landmarks are to be launched, with two every month. They include Zhangyuan, Tianhou Palace and Butterfly Bay Park.
