Very funny! They should have just put up a sign showing what you can do...

Andrew Spargo on October 31, 2007

Haha! Hilarious. No taxis allowed!

W@Z on October 31, 2007

Thanks for your comments Mathew and Andrew, I am surprised you were allowed to take a photo of the sign.

Too bad, it does seem like a prime location for a campfire, doens't it?

Very funny, didn't see this one in Beijing but I have a whole series of funny signs in China (not on Panoramio though). My favourite was near the underground palace about an hour from Beijing on a patch of bare earth : "Luxuriant grassland - please don't trample."

W@Z on December 9, 2007

The chinese have not quite grasped the grammer right, I have shots of signs that say, "caution falling into water" and "visitor stops walking" at the edge of a cliff, very funny

What I wonder is whether only cornets are forbidden. Can you play any other instruments?

W@Z on September 12, 2008

It took me a while to figure out what that cornet thing meant, i think it means no using the horn on your car!!!!!!!

Jessica G. on September 12, 2008

I'm sure you're right. :) But it looks just like "no playing the cornet" to me!

Eric Ferrer on October 9, 2008

Can I do something here ??? :)

W@Z on October 9, 2008

No Eric you can do nothing here... move along now, nothing to see!

Ben Linux on February 2, 2009

Why we say "Forbidden city"?It is a good example.

Paul Jess on March 15, 2010

Fortunately it appears that photography is allowed (but don't tell them or they'll make a bigger sign... ;)) Regards, Paul

I had a rye smile when I found this one again, Warren. I remembered been amused by it So, I have to give it a Y.Star! Alan.

W@Z on November 28, 2010

Cheers Alan, the Chinese love their rules.
