James H.W. Thompson was a self-made American entrepreneur who founded the Jim Thompson Thai Silk Company and was awarded the Order of the White Elephant for his exceptional contribution to the development of the Thai silk industry. His achievements during his 25-year stay in Thailand won him legendary acclaim, surpassed only by his mysterious disappearance in the Malaysian jungle in 1967. Since his disappearance, Jim Thompson’s charming residential enclave has been a key stop for visitors to Bangkok. Tucked inside a lush area of green trees and plants, the complex is comprised of six traditional Thai teakwood houses, which keep an extensive collection of Asian artifacts, as well as antiques and fine art. His sophisticated taste and knowledge of Southeast Asia and the arts, is evident as you meander from one room to the next.

Compulsory guided tours around the house limit children’s freedom to explore, but the gardens and modern outdoor café provide plenty of interest and entertainment. Older children will gain great insight into traditional Thai architecture and design.
