Damaged letterboxes now a tourist attraction





(15 Aug 2015) A pair of roadside letterboxes damaged during a typhoon earlier this month in Taipei have become a tourist attraction.
The tilted red and green letterboxes are drawing queues of people to snap photos and have inspired fan merchandise.

The Taiwanese postal service originally planned to remove the boxes on Thursday, citing safety concerns.
But after a public outcry, the boxes will now be staying, pending a review.
