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.

The Jim Thompson House is situated on the banks of the Saen Saeb Canal. This exquisite pink building is made of teak. The small building is surrounded by a green tree, and the window is sunny and the flowers are fragrant. The combination of traditional Thai architecture and fresh rural scenery highlights the unique charm of the combination of Chinese and Western.

Thompson, an American, is a practical architect who served in the US Army. After World War II, he came to Thailand to buy a home, promoted the Thai silk, and successfully sold it to the Western market. Later, he disappeared and left behind. A Thai garden in Bangkok.
For Thompsons disappearance, there is no clue as to what happened to him that year. Prior to this, the warlock had speculated that he would have a robbery in his 60s. He suggested that he should not travel far, but he still chose to leave the house and go to the Malaysian Mullen Highlands. One afternoon, he went out for a walk alone. Appeared.
In 1976, the Thai government established the Thompson Foundation. The court appointed its fund managers, such as the fees paid by tourists, brand profits, will be used for various research, publishing, etc. Can apply for donations to them.
Just as there is always a virtuous woman behind all successful men, there is a great architect behind all the great buildings. The Jim Thompson House is a typical Thai private villa left over by Thompson and has been around for two centuries. It has the most famous Thai silk store in Thailand. It is also a Thai silk museum, and there are various artworks, such as home decorations and ceramics. Visiting the entire former residence, the design of various courtyards, the arrangement of furniture will give you a sense of feeling, an architect has a culture and taste, in order to make life into an art!
