With a remarkable collection of art from Burma, China, Cambodia and Thailand, Jim Thompson House is a must-visit for history buffs and art lovers. A historic property, it once served as the residence of an American man named James H W Thompson, a man responsible for reviving the Thai silk industry and one of the most famous Americans in Asia during his time.
The Jim Thompson House is flanked by lush green garden nestled at the banks of the Saen Saeb Canal narrating the 30 years old tryst with the Southeast Asian art and culture traditions. The place itself is an impressive architecture with six traditional Thai teakwood houses belonging to Ayutthaya and Bangkok's Ban Krua community. With an eye for art, culture and beauty, this middle-aged American is said to be responsible for the revival of the dying industry of Thai silk. Retired from military service in 1946, Jim Thompson left behind a legacy after he mysteriously vanished in the Malaysian forest in 1967.
