Have you ever wanted to send a postcard from an unusual location? This list takes you through some of the most unusual post offices and boxes in Malaysia, and around the world.

The first Underwater Post Office in Malaysia is located in the east coast of Sabah, near Mataking Island. In 2006, Reef Dive Resort, sunk an old cargo ship near the island as part of its reef conservation programme. The ship was meant to create an artificial reef, which in turn would help to increase the population of fish and other sea creatures in the area. A mail box was placed on the ship, and divers can drop their postcard – which they can buy at the gift shop and comes complete with a plastic waterproof postal bag – in this box. The mail... diver comes twice a week to pick up any mail.
