Jim Thompson is an interesting to visit, you will know about Mr. Thompson history. The place is good atmosphere with traditional Thai style and nice garden. Also you will try Thai food and desert.

One of the top attractions in the city you get in a guided visit that explains the origin of the houses and the story of the owner, Jim Thompson. The houses are really impressive and the surroundings, with well kept gardens also pretty

Jim Thompson created a wonderful mixture of asian style combined with western way of living. A unique place in Bangkok with friendly personal and great culture treasures to see for just 200 baht. Go there... you won't be disappointed!

Take some of Asia’s biggest malls, hundreds of
street-side vendors and a dozen of posh hotels and
you’ll have Siam - Bangkok’s commercial district that
will make any shopper’s heart beat faster. From cheap
electronics and wholesale goods in MBK to designer
handbags in Siam Paragon, you’re almost guaranteed to
find what you’re looking for in one of Siam’s many
malls. Take a break from the commercial craze and
