Had a nice morning here. As a history enthusiast and art buff, I found that place very interesting. Most of the architecture is preserved and the guided tours explained very clearly the historical and cultural significance of Jim Thompson's place. We were also given much...More

It's a nice place because is like a oasis in the busy Bangkok. Other than that, i'd say is overrated. The story is unimpressive and the tour is just unnecesarry. However they have very tasty deserts so that's the reason i give them 3 stars.

The Jim Thompson House tour lasts about 35 minutes so it is a mini-activity rather than either a morning or afternoon activity. You can't go around on your own and must be in a tour group. This simply means once you pay to get in,...More

Lovely little pearl in the middle of nowhere A millionaires house with great decoration and lovely gardens The guides are very welcoming and nice Thaïlande dancers to greet Store is completely overpriced and not worth a visit

Take some of Asia’s biggest malls, hundreds of
street-side vendors and a dozen of posh hotels and
you’ll have Siam - Bangkok’s commercial district that
will make any shopper’s heart beat faster. From cheap
electronics and wholesale goods in MBK to designer
handbags in Siam Paragon, you’re almost guaranteed to
find what you’re looking for in one of Siam’s many
malls. Take a break from the commercial craze and

Yes, everybody gets a group tour at a group time in their language as part of the admission fee. While I am sure you can book a tourwe feel that would be like throwing money at a problem that doesn't exist. If able to... More

I think most museums are closed on Mondays. Better to check Google for the schedule.
