Chinglish is English which has been inaccurately translated into Chinese. I always thought its prevalence on signs and notices in China was overstated. Until, that is, I visited to China for myself in 2009. Here are five of the best examples I spotted on that three week trip.
1. No strinding
2. Don’t visit the head
If you happen to visit the Great Wall at Mutianyu, make sure you don’t lose your head. Or something.
There must be a lot of concern for people’s heads. Spotted at the Summer Palace.
4. Avoid this restaurant
I think I had a curry with similar after-effects once.
5. The grass is smiling
The Olympic Park in Beijing has various friendly signs encouraging you not to do things.
