View & Landscapes of Yilan County on registered cover from Taiwan

I received this registered cover from Taiwan, wit complete set  View & Landscapes of Yilan County, issued on 16.7.2019. Situated in Northeastern Taiwan, Yilan County is surrounded by both the ocean and the mountains. Yilan is officially administered as a county of the Republic of China. The name Yilan name derives from the aboriginal Kavalan tribe. Other former names in reference to this area in the Yilan Plain include Kabalan, Kavalan, Kavaland, La-A-Lan,E-A-Lan, and Gilan. Before 2009, the county's official name was transliterated as Ilan.

Thank you, Li Ming!
