I must say that this house has got something to offer and a must while in the city. It’s serene place and very peaceful like the country is. The gift shop is bit expensive but authentic. You can see the silk being made.

We visited Jim Thompson House very hot afternoon... However, house was much cooler & stunning Gardens. Would have been more informative if there was more information on Jim Thompson himself as well as the silk trade details.

This was my favorite sight in Bangkok. The story behind the house is very interesting. Our guide was very informative and knew the story well. The grounds are beautiful, the tour is nice. The restaurant was a little pricey.

Beautiful property with stunning gardens and impressive art collection. I do wish, though, that there had been a little morr focus on the history of silk in Thailand and how it's made. Besides a small table display, there was no info at all.

Jim Thompson House is nestled between the busy streets of Downtown Bangkok, but once you're within the grounds the hustle and bustle disappears. It's a lovely, peaceful place and offers a great change of pace. The house itself is beautiful as are the objects inside....More

Take some of Asia’s biggest malls, hundreds of
street-side vendors and a dozen of posh hotels and
you’ll have Siam - Bangkok’s commercial district that
will make any shopper’s heart beat faster. From cheap
electronics and wholesale goods in MBK to designer
handbags in Siam Paragon, you’re almost guaranteed to
find what you’re looking for in one of Siam’s many
malls. Take a break from the commercial craze and
