Jim Thompson House

Go visit. It’s a great look at “old” Thai style, architecture and art. It’s easy to find (just off BTS National Stadium stop) and the story of Jim Thompson is a good one.

About faranginbangkok

I began working in Bangkok during 2008- a time that featured a great deal of political unrest in Thailand and particularly Bangkok. I had lived in San Francisco for 15 years and was working on a project in Thailand. Generally, I spent 2 weeks in Bangkok and then 3-4 weeks in San Francisco. Did Bangkok begin to feel like home? Yes, and No. Bangkok and the Thai culture forced me to feel many things, the change in culture and environment was so dramatic it forced the decision- embrace or ignore. I embraced and made Bangkok my home and base in 2009. I have enjoyed living in Bangkok, experiencing Thailand and the entire ASEAN region. I moved to Singapore in 2016...fallen behind on this blog since.

    This is a very peaceful and interesting place to visit in the hustle and bustle of Bangkok. I have been three times so far and have numerous pictures, so time to stop procrastinating and do my write-up on the place.
