  Jim Thompson House
by Ines28

The American silk magnate Jim Thompson built his house from 6 teak houses before disappearing in the Cameron Highlands of Malaysia in 1967. The house now hosts one of Thailand`s best collections of Ayutthaya and Rattanakosin period art. The tours are well-organized and interesting.
Admission is 100 BHT, I believe.
