Funny Street Signs In Asia

During my travels in Asia, I’ve come along some funny street signs. Sometimes, it’s because of the translation. Sometimes, it’s because of the situation they describe! And sometimes, they just don’t make any sense.

I think that in those cases, the images are self-explanatory.

Enjoy!
