If you ever travel through Laos, most likely that you will run into some odd signs along the way. I didn’t captured all the crazy signs I saw, but managed to come back with few funny signs. Perhaps, the Department of Transportation ever thought about standardized their road signs. Throughout the country, most streets are without names or not post it properly. I am not even sure if some of those streets are given its name to begin with.
Also, signs from various tourist destinations aren’t standardized at all. This blog is simply bringing out some humors of all these signs. I love Laos, but common people.. Let’s get this right!! Some of these signs might take couple times of reading before you bust out a laugh.
Talking about missing in translation... Those words in Lao simply said.. Caution, Slippery Area.
Tharng pai yil... hahahah Love the picture
Noodle shoup for 10,000 kips.. hahah I actually ate there once and it is pretty good.
Why bother paying for the sign? When you can go ahead and write it on the wall.. hahhahah This is pretty typical in Laos.
Again.. Lao word said.. No Passing but in english.. Danger!! hahaha This sign is from one of the waterfall in Champasak.
hahhaha This one is pretty funny.. In Lao, it simply said.. This way down to the bottom of fall..
Way down.... lol
I found this sign at Wat Phou, Champasak..
Construction site next to Khop Chai Deu Restaurant.. Classic!!
Wat Sisaket, I was charged as the locals... 2,000 kips($0.25)
This is probably the funniest sign of all. I found this sign at the Victory Gate Monument(Arnousawaree).
