    to be honest mate, i dont really know,definately no english books anyways, i didnt get time to have a really good gander at everything as i was a bit wary of getting out with the pics as i thought they might be good enough to get prints and flog on ebay or something, more to come when i can resize them

    Nice pictures. There is a museum in Khon Kaen with very similar exhibits. Must have been set up by the same people. Also worth a visit ..... but only once.

    If interested in museums etc., I highly recommend the one in Ban Chiang. Very small but loaded with unique items from over 4,000 yrs ago.

    There is a dig (Very famous for Archeologists) in the temple with a great little museum in the center of town. A must see in my opinion.

    Ban Chiang is a few kilos south and east of Udon.

    Ban Chiang is well worth the effort. As is Sri Satchanalai up north {Sukhothai}. I have found most smaller and provincial museums around the country to be quite fascinating.

    Sunsetter,

    By taking and posting these pictures, you have given the impressions that farangs put themselves above the rules set by Thais. Such actions do not make life for us in the community any easier, and indeed, can easily destroy any goodwill painstakingly built up over the years.

    If they take away my telephone the next time I visit the museum (or any museum in the country for that matter), I will know whom to thank.

    I encourage the moderators consider removing this thread as it may encourage others to follow suit.

    Thanks for listening.
