No Smoking Sign

No smoking sign written in Thai

A No Smoking sign was set up in the passage

Shot in the city of Bangkok, Thailand.

I entered the dim market built just in front of Thonburi station. It was deserted and the passages followed a grid pattern. The passage where I walked stretched straight. While keeping walking, a big sign appeared in the air. It was a No Smoking sign. This market was a smoke-free place.

The wave of the anti-smoking campaign also came here. According to WHO's World Health Statistics 2016, the incidence of smoking among men in Thailand was 41.4% and among women was 2.3%.

Anyway, I thought the pictogram was great when I found this sign. The wording of the sign was written in only Thai. So if there was no picogram on the sign, I couldn't understand what the sign wanted to tell. The pictogram could tell the message across a language barrier.
