Ogy Kovachev ,
In the beginning of our trip in town we just spotted the house from the long-tailed boat and we managed to organize a visit only the day before our departure. Having our english guide was fruitful and gave us a lot if inside details of the silk guru in Asia. Worth a visit at the end of the day to avoid crowds and have stunning light all around.

This place is a real gem. The tour was very informative with a great tour guide, and the overall experience was very pleasant. Just to see the architecture is a reason to go. The gardens are beautiful. We also enjoyed lunch in the cafe.
bhodgkinson ,
I had not heard of Jim Thompson prior to arriving in Bangkok - but I really enjoyed the visit to his house. Interesting to hear about his life in Thailand - along with viewing his house. I would recommend a visit here whilst staying in Bangkok.

felician126 ,
Jim Thompson house can be reached by canal by boat. The place is of a special beauty. The tours are guided at fixed hours, in several languages. The inner courtyard is very beautiful. There is also a store with good quality clothing and accessories. The clothing items are made of natural silk, very beautiful.
caroler54 ,
Don’t miss this site. Beautiful home with lovely gardens and sad but interesting history. Truly a treasure not to be missed. Loved the silk Making and food samples as we entered. The shop is super pricey and mostly not my style but worth a look. Also very pricey. Our guide was terrific! The little bookshop/library was very nice. I purchased some postcards.
Mike Semertzakis ,
Beautiful traditional Thai house! One of the must see sights in Bangkok. Our guide was very professional and helpful. You need about 30 minutes to walk around all the house. Really enjoyed that!

Visited in the afternoon after returning from the Floating Market, it was boiling hot but they have lots of fans dotted around and the shop has excellent air con! Tours are guided and the information provided is very interesting. It’s a lovely place and a fascinating story of how it came to be.
Kellen007 ,
This is a must visit place while in Bangkok. Lots of history, very easy to understand why this home and history is being preserved. Recommend taking a taxi after the train, only a 5 minute walk, but not an easy walk for everyone.
annwillson ,
