    Wat Kham Chanot is a medium sized buddhist temple outside of the town. Main features are:

    *A neat island as a separate part of the temple in a rain forest which is the best temple area I've seen in Thailand

    *Hundreds of Naga snake sculptures

    *A pond with big turtles

    *Lots of small shrines and spirit houses

    *A giant elephant scuplture for worship

    99.99 % of the visitors are Thai people. There's no guiding for the temple area.

    Me at a basin of sacred water The bridge leading to the island Buddha staute in a different look! What's that? My wife said something about Main prayer's room, note the cat wearing a buddha

    Most of the food on sale in Ban Dung is Thai or Lao. If you eat at one of the many street side restaurants or buy a take away from one of the street vendors then you can eat for as little as 20 bahts. For those who want traditional european cuisine then Eddies Sport's bar on the main road through the town offers a varied selection although prices are higher. This is popular meeting place for the ex-pats who live here.

    Dress Code: No dress code but in Thai society it is considered impolite to wear "short" shorts except in the tourist areas where it is tolerated. Knee length shorts are acceptable.

Amphoe Ban Dung Local Customs

    The feet in Thailand are considered spiritually as well as physically the lowest part of the body. Don’t step over people’s legs, even in a crowded place such as on a train; wait politely for them to move out of the way. Do not point things out or pick things up with your feet. And do not wave your feet around people’s heads! If you accidentally touch someone with your foot, apologise. Food in Thailand is often eaten on the floor. Stepping over food is a real faux pas.

    While I stayed at the Grand I tried breakfast at a place just around the corner on the main street. I believe the name was Davos. Skip that place , the food was terrible and the prices higher than home. But, I did find another place called Garys, the food is great but his hours are not dependable which I found he is having med. problems and I wish him well.

    I stayed at the Grand which is the hotel in the above photo. It was clean but could not get any sleep because of the noise from the bars close by. And I do mean noise. The hotel was clean and I was told it was about 2 or 3 years old, they are plain rooms with not much there but don't need much if you are passing thru.

    For the person who wrote eddies sports bar ??? It is not a sports bar it's just a place for a select few drunks to yack and case trouble among the expats. Now if you want to visit a nice restaurant/bar situation try Buddas. When I passed thru Ban Dung I found it by accident but it's a small place owned by a man from Ireland and I think his wife. The food is good, prices cheap (unlike Eddies which are expensive, who pays 70 baht for a bottle of Leo in Bandung ??) and it's a very pleasant place to relax and listen to your choice of music. All in all, there is nothing to do or see in and around Bandung.
