Supposed to have TukTuk picked up but was told that we had to walk to Jim Thomson . Do not listen to the hotel staffs, these was Tuk Tuk - Just wait . I saw Tuk Tuk (Jim Thomson) and I just needed to let them know that I wanted a ride . Overall tour is good, like good to know. Houses are very nice and very well kept. Garden is beautiful. I like it here.

Dear ThePeter1, That’s for your comments. Not sure what you mean you can have a guided tour for 200 Baht? Our tour includes hotel pick up and drop off and the Suan Pakkard Palace and then Jim Thomson House. The 200 Baht is only the entrance fee to the house without anything extra as above. If you want to explain further please do email us at guest@iasiathailand.com Regards. Christopher

When you arrive it is like change to another place, coming from the noise and confusion.... Suddenly you can hear the water and little birds and forget the pollution...
The guide visit is very well organized and the story of Jim Thompson is incredible.
If you come to BKK is mandatory come and visit!
