Bangkok: Jim Thompson House Museum



No visit to Bangkok is complete without a tour of this museum and art centre. It is the former home of the late James H.W. Thompson, an American businessman and architect who dedicated over 30 years of his life to reviving Thai silk in the 1950s. This venue is home to 6 traditional Thai teakwood houses transported from Ayutthaya and Ban Krua Silk Village as well as Thompson’s collection of Asian antiques and Thai silk.
