A giant postcard created by local authorities and students in China’s eastern Shandong Province on Tuesday earned a place in the Guinness Book of World Records.

Stretching over 1,394 metres, the postcard is a composite of 10,000 regular-sized postcards about the provincial capital Jinan, all filled out by students from the high school attached to Shandong Normal University and the School of International Education and Exchange of University of Jinan.

The giant postcard was measured and certified for the world record today, state-run Xinhua news agency reported.

The activity was held by the Jinan government and the China Post Jinan Company to promote the city as a tourist destination.
