    Thailand Umbrella Signs


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     JohnVogel Colorful umbrellas hanging in a store in Chiang Mai, Thailand, feature in this photo by iReporter John Vogel. "The weather in Thailand is quite hot, so a signage display consisting of locally crafted umbrellas fits the occasion as umbrellas are often used by Thai women to keep the sun off of their faces," he says.

    This photo is of a culturally interesting and creative display of signs for an herbal "anti-hangover" drink called Hang. A quick google-search of "hang drink Thailand" will provide the background info. on this brand of drinks. I realize that some of the words are provocative, but these words are the names of various lines of drinks in the Hang "anti-hangover" portfolio of drinks.

    I find the photo compelling due to the unique and culturally interesting qualities of this signage display.
