    Happy hour

    We visited the property for their happy hour. Good drinks and ambiance. There is an out door and in door area. They also had a live traditional dance performance.

Additional Information

Introduction

The Jim Thompson House is a cluster of buildings covered in greenery and the former home of Jim Thompson, an American silk entrepreneur and art collector. The entire building comprises a classic Thai-style garden. Thompson collected a variety of abandoned Thai houses and structures in central Thailand and reassembled them in 1959. Comprising six buildings, the exterior is centered around a red color, with the structure suspended over a small canal. There is a yard in the middle filled with flowers and plants—a beautiful sight to behold.
