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! more »
A house collection of household name Jim Thompson in Thailand. With a great collection of Thai and Chinese antiques. He redesign the architecture in a organic way to make 3 houses into one. The wooden structures are just so fascinating to watch. You can also enjoy the canal beside the house. A great number of female tour guides will take you to a tour in Thai, Chinese or English(I feel like they have more languages). They will answer all your questions.
Wanted to visit his house for a long time and finally this time I've managed it. Loved the wooden ready-made houses connected with each other beside the canal. Beautiful maintained and in a very good condition currently. Loved the garden as well. Gotta have a house like this for sure. It's a very peaceful and serene environment around it. Must visit at least once for sure.
