If you’re tired of shopping and taking in all the neon-lit sights of the city, then do note that Jim Thompson House is one of the coolest places to visit in Bangkok and you won’t regret making the trip there. You probably know about the Jim Thompson Thai Silk Company that he set up in Bangkok.
It’s still one of the best places to procure Thai silk. However, his house is an example of traditional Thai architecture and it is built on one of Bangkok’s waterways. There are six buildings here, and inside, there’s a refreshing jungle-like ambience, far removed from the hustle and bustle of Bangkok.
