Unusual, Custom and Unique Postboxes at Postbox Shop

Just when I thought I had seen it all, I found out that there is an underwater postbox!

Yes, an actual custom letterbox below the sea or ocean, that you can post your mail that will be delivered anywhere in the world…crazy or what? It must be a record in the Guinness Book of Records.

Well, now you have a choice of these unique postboxes, if you are on holiday in the Republic of Vanuatu (islands in the Pacific Ocean), Pulau Layang-Layang (Malaysia) or Susami, Wakayama (Japan).

When on holiday, my wife and I always send postcards to family at home. Many people still send postcards from their holidays abroad but have you ever sent one from underwater? Tourists wearing masks, fins and snorkels or full diving gear, can visit these underwater and unique postboxes. Once there they are able to post special letters and postcards, which have been treated to make them waterproof.

The Pulau Layang-Layang underwater postbox is a custom letterbox that lies 40 metres below the surface. Deputy Minister of Communications and Multimedia Jailani Johari said the location of the postbox had made it the deepest in the world, beating the one in Susami, Wakayama, Japan which is only 10m metres deep and currently holding the Guinness World Record.

“This means that we have to make an application to the Guinness World Records to earn world recognition for our post box.”
