The Thai silk industry owes a lot to an American man who was called Jim Thompson. After offering his services to military and also to the tourism and hotel industry, he turned to silks and took the decision of permanently settling in Bangkok. This led to the silk Textile industry in Thailand to flourish like never before. Due to this, a trip to his old residence is sure to be a very significant step in understanding the trade history of Thailand.

Great place for a Saturday hangout with family! Started with lunch at the restaurant. The food is average. Good taste but bland... Anyways, that’s not really the point as it sets you in the mood! The house is amazing, both in terms of architecture and the history / legend it carries! Tour guides are doing an amazing work there. Finally, there are a couple of shops where you can buy items ranging from postcards to silk scarves And a coffee shop upstairs at the entrance building to finish it off... We had a great time!
A really cool historical site in the middle of the city. Interesting tour of the place & it's owner by English speaking guide, amazing antique collection, beautiful design of the house structure with very well preserved content. Has a shop with plenty of silk products to select from, colorful, beautiful but on the pricey side. Restaurant available on site but didn't get a chance to try.
Really cool site in the heart of Bangkok. When you purchase your ticket you get assigned a guide. Our guide was lovely and well informed but I found we were shuffled through the house very quickly in order to keep pace with the other tours. This meant we weren't given much time to ask questions. Otherwise, a lovely place.
Very nicely decorated restaurant. We were invited here for partner event. The food is not too bad - Tom yum coconut soup is nice. The rest of the food is average - 3 stars. 4th star is for the dance they had and also the nicely cut fruits - have you seen heart shaped watermelon and porcupine shaped papaya? 😍
Very good and would highly recommend the tour. The guide spoke excellent English and had great knowledge. She also invited us to try making some origami afterwards at no extra cost. The story of Jim Thompson is a compelling one so would put this to the top of any "to-do list" in Bangkok. Easiest way to get there is by boat and there's a stop very close by.
