Full description
Your guide and driver will pick you up from your hotel either in the morning or in the afternoon, depending on your time chosen. Drive from your hotel through the city center to arrive at Jim Thompson’s House. Jim Thompson was the legendary American architect-entrepreneur who settled in Thailand after WWII and almost single-handedly revived the Thai silk industry. Thompson's achievements during his 25-year stay in the Kingdom of Thailand have won him much fame as the "Legendary American of Thailand". Since his mysterious disappearance in 1967 in the jungle of Malaysia, little has changed in the home that was the 'talk of the town'. Even today, this iconic Thai-style house, which contains extensive collections of art and antique objects, continues to be a key stop for visitors to Bangkok. Jim's maze of seven Thai-style teak houses has since been converted into a small private museum filled with his priceless collection of Asian antiques, pottery, and curiosities. After touring all the corners of this spectacular house and the lush gardens, your guide and driver will safely bring you back to your hotel.
