Facebook pictures of a tsunami warning sign in Rawai district of Phuket had the Thais having a laugh at the authorities' expense.

The sign in English and Thai that advised about tsunami evacuation suggested going either way for 700 kilometers.

Some people asked a tad ironically as to whether Bangkok was sufficient to get away from the giant wave or would it need to be Chiang Mai.

Thai Rath said it was clearly a mistake and meant to say 700 meters but mentioned in their headline that foreigners were confused.

Sarayuth Mallam said on Facebook that there really ought not to be mistakes in such important signage.
