What to Expect
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Jim Thompson House, 6, Soi Kasem San 2, Rama 1 Road Wang Mai, Pathum Wan, Bangkok 10330 Thailand

This jungly compound is the former home of the eponymous American silk entrepreneur and art collector. Born in Delaware in 1906, Thompson briefly served in the Office of Strategic Services (the forerunner of the CIA) in Thailand during WWII. He settled in Bangkok after the war, when his neighbours’ handmade silk caught his eye and piqued his business sense; he sent samples to fashion houses in Milan, London and Paris, gradually building a steady worldwide clientele.

Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes

Stop At: Jim Thompson, 9 Surawong Rd. Suriyawong, Bangrak, Bangkok 10500 Thailand

Jim Thompson House - The lovely garden-enclosed compound sitting on the bank of the Saen Saeb Canal would have gone completely unnoticed, had it not been for a legacy left behind by a middle-aged American man named Jim Thompson. His elegant residential enclave, comprising six traditional Thai teakwood houses transported from Ayutthaya and Bangkok’s Ban Krua community, echoes Jim Thompson’s 30-year love affair with Southeast Asian art and cultural heritage.

Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes

Stop At: Suan Pakkad Palace Museum, 352 - 354 Sri Ayudhya Rd Rajathevi, Bangkok 10400 Thailand

Suan Pakkad Palace is a place to find visions of Thailand you thought long since vanished in Bangkok. Its name means 'cabbage patch', in reference to when the land was nothing more than just that. Today, however, it's a well-tended tropical garden with serene ponds surrounding eight traditional Thai houses, each of which brims to overflowing with fine arts, antiques and oddities belonging to Prince and Princess Chumbhot.

Duration: 1 hour

Pass By: I Asia Thailand, 319 Phayathai Road, Pathumwan 24th Floor c/o Spaces, Bangkok 10330 Thailand
