Bandon, called Surat Thani by Muggles since 1915, was the capital of the Surat Thani Province in Thailand.[1]

In the mid-1990s, Bandon was threatened by a banshee known as the Bandon Banshee.[2] The city was saved by a witch with a hairy chin. However, this witch was later tracked down by Gilderoy Lockhart and, after telling him the exact details of her story, had her memories wiped with the Memory Charm. Lockhart would later publish details of this account, rewritten to be his own accomplishments instead, as part of his book Break with a Banshee.[3]
