Top 10 Funny Signs In Kunming, China

As I can not read Chinese writing, I will need to read English versions of Chinese signs everywhere I go when I will shortly visit Kunming. These are some of the signs that visitors have spotted in Kunming which I may come across. On a serious side, it is not that easy to translate the Chinese language into English. Some Chinese words may match English words, but Chinese phrases do not easily match English phrases. These sign writers did the best they could !
