"Jim Thompsons House" Jim Thompson House Tip by slasty

Jim Thompson House, Bangkok: 69 reviews and 128 photos

This is a great way to spend an hour and easy to get to by yourself. Jim Thompson's House is a short walk from the Skytrain and the MBK Shopping Mall. The House is built next to a canal and is a number of traditional Thai teak house with amazing gardens. What makes it worth visiting is that it is a little sanctuary away from the traffic and noise in the middle of Bangkok. Worth visiting and taking a walk around and all has a Jim Thompson Silk Shop.
