PEX: Thailand 2013

Thailand 2013The Thailand 2013 World Stamp Exhibition opened on Friday last week, and Thailand Post has invited the world to Bangkok to celebrate all things philatelic.

The exhibition runs from 2nd August to 14th August. It is located in the Royal Paragon Hall in the Siam Paragon Shopping Complex, central Bangkok.

I am posting some of the worldwide stamps that I bought at the exhibition. These stamps are kind of special issues: often regular stamps, but printed with the Thailand 2013 exhibition logo. Exhibitions like this are great for viewing and collecting stamps from many countries that you wouldn’t normally come across in day-to-day collecting.

So, in no particular order…

Macau

Cover Macau Thailand 2013

A dedicated Thailand 2013 commemorative cover with commemorative cancel.

The stamp is from 2010, and features a bowl of noodle soup from the 10th Anniversary of the Macau Food Festival issue.

Republic of Korea

Cover S Korea Thailand 2013

A dedicated Thailand 2013 commemorative cover with commemorative cancel. Although, both the cover and the cancel have errors; they indicate that the exhibition runs from 2nd August to 8th August – 6 days short.

The stamps are from the 2008 Korea – Thailand joint issue, which is a nice feature, commemorating 50 years of diplomatic relations.

A souvenir sheet from North Korea, with a block of 4 commemorative stamps issued in 2010 (I am guessing they have been reprinted for the exhibition).

Philippines

Marine Biodiversity souvenir sheet with triangular stamps from the Philippines, over printed with the Thailand 2013 logo. The stamps are printed without a date, but I think they were issued in 2013.

Indonesia

A commemorative cover, souvenirsheet, and cancel from Indonesia. The stamp was issued in 2013.

Like the cover from South Korea, this cover indicates that the exhibition runs from 2nd August to 8th August.

Also from Indonesia, a commemorative sheet from 2013, with stamps featuring classic images from Thai culture, arts, and natural history.
