Bad english in highway sign upsets Thais

Local residents have urged authorities to correct a sign giving directions to Pattaya City Hall in Chon Buri province which has a typographical error, as such a simple mistake could affect the image of the internationally-known tourist town.

The sign which spells out "CTIY" instead of "CITY" is located near a branch office of CAT Telecom PCL on the Southern Pattaya Road.
