What to Expect
Visit the legendary Jim Thompson House in Bangkok on this 4-hour guided tour and learn how the late American businessman helped to revive the Thai silk industry in the 1950s and 1960s.
The house is a perfect example of authentic Thai residential architecture and Southeast Asian art, consisting of a complex of 6 traditional Thai-style houses. Admire the teak structures that were purchased from several owners and brought to the present location from various parts of Thailand.
Construction of the house was completed in 1959, and this magnificent half-day tour is dedicated to one of the most remarkable achievements ever made by a foreigner in Thailand; an achievement that is as miraculous as his later disappearance in Malaysia’s Cameron Highlands was mysterious.
