THE STRANGEST (AND FUNNIEST) TRAVEL GUIDE YOULL EVER READ

The celebrated authors of the perennial bestseller The 776 Stupidest Things Ever Said set the typical travel guide squarely on its head-taking you from the airport to the hotel, from sightseeing to dining out-by using 100 percent real examples of fractured English as spoken and posted abroad:

• Feel like shopping?

We have no good things to sell.

-shop sign, Lovina Beach, Bali

• Feeling sick?

Are you haunted by the horribles? Do you run after your own nose?

-Japanese medical form

• Wondering what to wear?

A sports jacket may be worn to dinner, but no trousers.

-in a French hotel brochure

• Wondering where to eat?

Grill and Roast your clients! Open for lunch, dinner and Sunday Brunch.

-slogan of the Hibiscus restaurant in the Jakarta Hilton International

But dont take our word for it, come see for yourself. And if thats too much to ask, remember the sage advice from the staff of a Taipei hotel: “If there is anything we can do to assist and help you, please do not contact us.”
