Ying and Chai

women men restrooms thai signs

Simple picture of a sign for the restrooms in a restaurant in Bangkok. The symbols representing women and men are the Thai characters for their abbreviated forms – i.e. the Thai version of W and M. The full words for woman and man in Thai are respectively: หญิง (‘ying’) and ชาย (‘chai’) giving us the symbols above of ญ and ช.
