The house in which Jim Thomson lived. He helped revitalize Thai silk industry after WW2, and misteriously disappeared in Malaysian mountains. 100 Bahts entrance fee, worth to visit.
Amazing place. Impressive traditional Thai architecture, a wide collection of century old antiques and Thai art, beautiful gardens and ambience. You can watch live silk-weaving and traditional dance!
Six teak buildings, which represent the best Thai architecture. Take a tour (100/50 THB) to know all about the traditional religious rituals. And, silk. Amazing place!
Close to Bts national stadium station, go along the street near nissan showroom, and after a 3 min walk you will reach a hidden gem in the city.
Nice example of traditional Thai construction, even though Mr. Thompson had the walls facing the wrong way. Just sorry you can't visit without a mandatory tour guide and included group of tourists.
Lovely, nice and cosy house!:) Interesting to see oriental interior and know the Jim Thompson story. Great choice of silk in the shop, though, just in case, there is one in the airport too.
Tickets at 180baht per person, includes a guided tour. Wear shoes easy to put on and take off as there are areas where no shoes are allowed
Beautifully houses, nice free, short tour (only way to see it) & inexpensive entrance. All goes to charity & preservation so grab a drink/food in the restaurant.
An amazing place, where you can learn about the history of Thailand and Jim Thompson's, an american that has vanished in the 1970s. Admission fee: 100 THB.
Free navette from the national stadium metro to the house. Very quiet and beautiful place, don't miss the restaurant too!
Jim Thompson's House, which is built in traditional teak wood style, is now a museum displaying valuable collection of Thai arts such as benjarong (a multicoloured porcelain).
Tourist trap here, Just because Jim Thompson collecting Thai silk now buy silk from local villages and sell in gallery multiple prices. This guy get advantage from Thai business.
Beautiful Thai traditional house for antique lover, great souvenir shop just next to our Siam Square branch. Real Thai silk available there!!!
Excellent facilities and well managed. Nice half hour tour. Restaurant and museum shop worth a visit. All highly recommended.
Hidden attraction the gives you a feeling how live was before all if the skyscrapers. After the visit go to the river and take the boat!
Food at the restaurant to totally worth it. Coconut ice cream is to die for. Sometimes there are special exhibits above the store.
I can't help but feel this is a tourist trap for middle-aged Westerners. It was nice to take a peek into his home, but would have rather learned more about silk.
Come to see a beautifully architected house composed of 6 different traditional Thai homes, some over 200 years old -- and all surrounded by a peaceful green garden.
A nice place to visit. You will need less than one hour to explore this beautiful Thai traditional house. Don't miss it !
If Locals will tell you that the musem is closed, do not believe them, it opened seven days a week! So just walk along the street!
Neat tour about an idiosyncratic historical site. It only takes an hour to see, so it's an easy in and out.
interesting history, a quick tour and if in Bangkok more than 2 days a must see.
Nice architecture, beautiful HOUSE and great food. Expensive itens in the Store.
The coconut ice cream at the restaurant is to die for...idyllic setting of the house. Oasis in heart of Bangkok
A must, can't be in BKK and not visiting it. Way out: take the boat on the khlong canal: cheap and great!
Don't miss classy ambiance at the adjacent restaurant. Try rich and refreshing shakes or a pot of tea.
'The House by the Klong' of Jim Thompson, the 'Father of Thai Silk'. Jim Thompson, an American, came to Thailand at the end of WWII and helped revive the Thai silk industry.
40 min tour and it cost you only 100 baht, worth every penny! Beautiful house and beautiful history
Beware of touts trying to tell you it's closed or offering to take you to a jewelry shop one street over....huge scam business going on there
100 baht entrance fee (50 baht for students and young) tours in thai, english, french,japanese
you wouldn't believe there's such a place like this in the heart of Bangkok right next to those department stores. Highly recommended ^_^
Down town, close the highest activity center of Bangkok but so nice and calm...a haven of peace!
Very good restaurant and excellent tour, bring your friends and family from abroad!
Excellent place to learn about Thai architecture and an American architect's take on it.
Wonderful place to know in Bangkok. Cool history with an excellent restaurant.
It's not the best place to buy Jim Thompson's silk. You should buy @ the Jim Thompson's store because there are more options @ the store.
The guided tour is good, nice to know the history of this place even-though it's not completely transitional Thai
Great 30 min tours. Free golf cart shuttle from the BTS National Stadium station!
Perfect infotainment place for design students and professional to learn about Thailand cultural
Tourist trap for privileged white folks who come here to tour the house of a privileged white guy.
Nice 30minutes tour to know Jim thompson,, A foreigner who built Thai silk and art,,
Scarfs are beautiful, not so expensive and perfect for a gift. Pictures not allowed inside of the house 😔
Beautiful place with a cozy mood , don't miss the shop
Its amazing! Its peace of heaven in Bangkok.
What a beautiful place to visit :) french guides here speak fluently french (thumbs up)
Cherry cheesecake and Darjeeling tea. Highly recommended
This guy knew how to live. Restaurant is a must try.
