Continuing our Lost in Translation special, featuring silly signs from around the world. Our focus today: Thailand!
A sign on an ATM banking machine: “who forget the card payment, please press the call”
“We raised the shoppingmall on the island.”
Sign on our Angkor Wat visitor’s pass. I always hope for a well organized and tranquil visit when sightseeing.
Not so much a silly sign, but more just an odd concept…
Ooo so many possibilites!
I like the simplicity of this “Hello Kitty” rip off.
“It can clean your dead skin it is funny happy please try it and get to know”
What’s on the Manu?
Ok condoms. They’re ok.
That sounds promising.
I like french fried and hambergers. Not sure what food oder is, but I’m intrigued.
My favorite store at MBK: Jeams.
“You’r”. Another classy MBK store.
And one final store at MBK: “Angle Phone”
“Please keep the door close”
A sign outside a furniture store: “Soft and grand sofa helps fill the perfection in your living room”
I like this store’s slogan: “A good idea to buy the camera.. Thinking of Camera Center”
I’m quite sure they didn’t mean to call this store an “Imaginary Fashion Zone”
A sign inside a restaurant. “Prohibit tead the food and lead to drink come in have for a shop”…. “prohibit lead a dog comes in a shop”… “prohibit take a photograph” (swoopsies). I’m quite sure someone used google translate for this sign.
“Love gifts”. That makes me so much more willing to give.
“Not lean the edge of escalator”
A sign leading into the Bangkok subway station. Clearly no fun is allowed.
Also, how often does one bring balloons on the train?
Nothing is allowed.
Someone got very excited about punctuation.
A sign on a beach. Good thing I’m drinking vodka.
“Please wear jacket lift”
A sign at the ferry dock in Koh Phi Phi: “funnel into out the passenger”
Another sign on Koh Phi Phi as you arrive on the island, explaining their 20 baht fee for every visitor: “Assistance in Paying for care, The sparking clean on Phi Phi Island”
A sign at the airport: “good will fligh to china”
Street market stalls in Chiang Mai selling fancy trinkets: “Blow me hole for my sound”
We learned a new way to say “sale” at the supermarket: “Price Off”
This was exactly how Shane and I arrived in at this Chiang Mai temple…
A sign at Ayutthaya telling us about how the buildings were formed: “it was leaved as a ruin”.
“It is nearly out of order”
Ooo, all we have to do is “walk straightly” to “have a lot of temples”.
A sign at the grocery store. It’s very helpful to know this aisle has “food”.
If nothing else, we know it has a potato chip.
“Please do not climb and take care of the children”
