Background
This is a set of stamps jointly issued by China and Switzerland.

Shouxi Lake is located at the western suburbs of Yangzhou, Jiangsu Province. The 5-kilometre-long lake is a famous scenic spot of the city. As the lake is narrow and long compared with the West Lake in Hangzhou and beautiful in its own way, it is called Shouxi Lake. Shouxi Lake means slender West Lake. The lake was formed with crisscrossing rivers. Later, buildings were constructed by adopting the technique of Chinese garden design. Along the lake are both natural scenes and gardens of unique Yangzhou style, creating a piece of landscape painting. The most famous scenes are the twenty-four bridges including Great Rainbow Bridge and Five-Pavilion Bridge.

Lemans Lake is located in the southwest of Switzerland and to the east of France. Covering 531 square kilometres, the lake is surrounded by the mountains whose peaks are covered with snow all year round. This is a beautiful and famous scenic area and health resort in Switzerland. The Xiyong Castle on the Lemans Lake is one of the country's oldest castles. Inside the castle are the church, bridges, towers, warehouses, prisons and underground ways. On the walls and pillars of the castles are many autographs and paintings by modern and ancient people. Standing on the top of the castle, one can see all the beautiful views of the lake.
