On arrival, the guide will provide you with some information about the place before entering the house. After entering the traditional house, the Jim Thompson guide will escort you to see different sections inside. The house consists of a complex of six traditional Thai-style houses, teak structures that were purchased from several owners and brought to the present location from various parts of Thailand. Construction of the Thai house was completed in 1959. Since his disappearance in 1967, little has changed in the home that was the city's most celebrated social center.  After visiting the house, your guide will take you to the Baan Krua Nhua community, located on the bank of the Klong Saen Saeb River. It has been the area of the Cham people since the reign of King Rama I. The Cham people usually work as fisherman and silk weavers. From this folk wisdom came Jim Thompson, the famous proprietor, fascinated by Thai silk. He supported the silk weaving in this community and bought it into his own company. The brand Jim Thompson was popular all over the world. Nowadays, the people in this community still keep the silk weaving profession. The silk is unique due to its high-quality texture, beautiful color and durability.  You will get to visit the house of Uncle Aood, the last family of the Baan Krua community who still continue the silk business for a living today. Also, you will have an opportunity to buy the quality silk products directly from the original place. At the end of your tour, you will be transferred back to your hotel.

It was a really great and unique experience. Mae showed us an authentic Thai market where locals shop and then introduce us to diverse ingredients that we haven’t seen before in Europe. The kitchen is well equipped, recipes are well described. We were very satisfied with the dishes we made and they tasted amazing. Mae explained the dishes step by step and was all clear. She was very helpful and kind.

Great food an instructor. Went to market and her food knowledge was amazing, answered all my questions. The pace was perfect, and after minor adjustments, spice levels were toned down for me. Instructor also gave alternative ingredients in case they were not to be found in the states. Had more than enough leftovers for a great dinner the next day. It is well worth it.

Loved this class! Although the instructor's English was limited, he still taught us so much and we all managed to have a laugh too. Good intensity to the boxing, our instructor gave me some adapted exercises when I struggled and put my fitter husband through his paces! Gym is very nice, good views as well. Definitely recommend!

The whole experience was amazing! We were a small group of 5 people. Started the morning going around the market picking up the freshest ingredientes and after we went to cook several thai dishes with the guidance of our superb tour guide! We loved it, very well organised too. Nothing bad to say!

Hey that was a really great experience especialy training with locals and dont worry in each step they are asking *you okay* so you set the bar by saying yes/no
