    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.

    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.

    Nice architecture, beautiful HOUSE and great food. Expensive itens in the Store.

  • maique m.

    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.

    Pretty and relaxing, worth a visit if you're in the area

    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.

    The coconut ice cream at the restaurant is to die for...idyllic setting of the house. Oasis in heart of Bangkok

    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.

    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.
