A Small 4 hole golf course and Driving Range located about 1k out of the Town or for the real thing then there are Golf courses at Nong Khai (191 Moo1,Tabol Khai Bok,Amphor Nong Kai, Tel (042) 407-296-300) and Udon Thani ( Bankaituan, Udonthani-Nongkai Rd. Muang Udonthani tel:(042) 222-927)
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.
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.
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.
