The streets of Bangkok are quite full of vehicles, thank you, so take the pedestrian and bicycle overpasses to cross the street. Here is my favorite example in Bangkok.

Back to signs, there are intriguing signs and charming signs in Lumpini Park itself. For example, it’s so busy here with people in the early hours of the day and in the cool of the evening that we’ve had to place restrictions on the hours of use for skateboards and bicycles in the park.
