Good place to visit, and our tour guide was nice to us. The house is beautiful and well maintained. We do not have time to go in the countryside of Thailand so we can only imagine this house is typical. A good visit to do.

A very nice museum. You can visit of you have some spare time. This can actually be skipped. The hospitality is good and you have guided tour inside the house.

The former home of silk entrepreneur Jim Thompson is well worth a look, especially if you are interested in art, design or fabric.

A great story surrounds the house and the tragic disappearance of the man. Well worth a couple hours of your time, the house is impressive and the gardens very beautiful. You forget that you are in a busy city centre whilst there.
