    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.

    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.
