I was in the Zhongshan MRT station earlier today and paused to look at a posted map to get my bearings. At first this left me even more confused. Finally I noticed the problem: north was pointed down, not up, on the map. The text was correct, so it wasn’t that someone had posted the map upside down; it had been made that way.
It had hanyu pinyin, so it must be relatively recent. This has got me wondering if this is some new SNAFU, and that soon we’ll be seeing topsy-turvy maps in all the MRT stations. Has anyone else spotted such things recently in other official material?
Doesn’t anyone responsible for these things ever pay attention?!
