Cambodia was the 12th Asian country I visited in a year and a half, so I had already become used to seeing funny English signs/posters.
However, on my way from the Siem Reap airport to the hotel I passed by a sign that seemed so hilarious, I couldn’t stop myself from laughing. It was a sign on a barber shop that said: “Asian Hair Cut” and had a picture of a white military American guy in his 30s (you can see the picture below).
From then on I decided to take pictures of all the funny signs I would encounter and write an article about it. After 2 weeks in Cambodia and 2 weeks in Thailand, I compiled the 12 funniest ones.
P.S. On one occasion I saw a truck that had “My heart will go on” printed on its front window. It looked absolutely epic and it’s such a shame I could not take a picture of it, since it drove the opposite direction.
