License Plates From Around Asia

by Jason -- September 9, 2010

One of the traditions I’ve tried to keep for each country I visit is to take a picture of the license plate. It has been interesting to compare something as common as a license plate throughout the various countries we’ve visted. In this picture post, I’ll share the different license plates we’ve come across throughout Asia.

The following are in the order in which we visited each country.

Hong Kong


China (Guangzhou)

Vietnam (Motorbike license plate)


Thailand (Bangkok)

South Korea (Seoul)

Japan (Nara)

  1. How fun. Hey, I forgot to say “Happy Birthday, Jason”. It’s still your birthday here, right? I hope it was a good one.

  2. What an interesting idea. I have taken notice of different license plates before but never thought of doing anything like this. I have a weird fascination with train stations so I tend to document them.

  3. This is a great idea. It’s kinda like a souvenir from every country visited but a souvenir that you don’t have to pack along.

  4. @Carmen — Thanks very much. And yes, you got it on my birthday! :-)

    @Eric — Train stations are very cool, I wouldn’t call that weird at all. I also like taking pictures of the taxi options in a given country. In many places it’s not a boring sedan car.

    @Don — Yeah, you’re right. I never thought about it that way, but you’re definitely right.
