Humorous Signs in Thailand

Humorous Signs in Thailand

Since I’ve been in Thailand, I’ve seen signs that have made me smile, laugh, or wonder what it was they were trying to say. Here is a sampling:

It's nice they have a danger warning on this sign, but honestly, this looks more organized than most of the wiring in Chiang Mai

  1. Thanks for these! My particular favourite is the 187% ingredient cake – I’m quite used to seeing things In Thailand where less than 100% of the ingredients are listed, so anything extra is a bonus!

    • Thanks for the comment. I know what you mean. I just got some shampoo from a health food store that contains ‘coconut milk, water, ect’ that’s it 🙂
