Discover an amazing chapter of Thai history on this tour that includes hotel pick up and drop off, and get a guided tour of the mysterious Jim Thompson House. See the enigmatic American architect's extensive collection of Thai art, explore his beautifully self-designed house, surrounded by lush jungle foliage in the heart of Bangkok, and uncover an extraordinary story of one man's influence on a nation.
Before Jim Thompson's mysterious disappearance in 1967, the mercurial entrepreneur amassed a trove of Thai treasures and artworks, and built beautiful houses around Bangkok inspired by Thai Buddhist aesthetics.
Visit Thompson's pièce de résistance: the home he lived in. It's now a museum dedicated to his life and his incredible art collection. A guide will take you from room to room, giving you the inside scoop on the architect's lasting influence on Thai culture.
Afterwards, head to Suan Pakkad Palace which was once the residence of Thai royalty. The palace's traditional houses beautifully showcase Thailand's intricate architectural style, which is an art form in its own right.
This tour allows you to see glorious treasures, both personal and royal, while learning about Buddhist traditions.
