Bangkok, Thailand - Day Events: Jim Thompson House

Jim Thompson House

Jim Thompson was an American business man who helped revitalize Thailand's silk industry in the 1950s and 1960s. The house is filled with Thai artifacts. But if you are just looking to purchase some Thai silk products, you can find them at the night markets in Bangkok for much cheaper. The cost to tour the house is 1,000 baht per person.

Ashley, I'm not a trained photographer. I just take lots and lots of photos of the SAME scene.

One is bound to come out nicely. :-)

Ashley,

If I may ask you, what you thinks make country or place like Thailand and Bali are so special and interesting in the eyes of westerners ? Is it the values that are so different or ........

Hi EoNe. Thanks for your comment. I don't know about other travelers, but as for me, I find Thailand to be so different from everything I am use to in my daily life.

The picturesque islands are like a tropical paradise and the people are so kind and generous. Thailand seems to be a very welcoming country that I am always happy to visit!
