A house collection of household name Jim Thompson in Thailand. With a great collection of Thai and Chinese antiques. He redesign the architecture in a organic way to make 3 houses into one. The wooden structures are just so fascinating to watch. You can also enjoy the canal beside the house. A great number of female tour guides will take you to a tour in Thai, Chinese or English(I feel like they have more languages). They will answer all your questions.
Wanted to visit his house for a long time and finally this time I've managed it. Loved the wooden ready-made houses connected with each other beside the canal. Beautiful maintained and in a very good condition currently. Loved the garden as well. Gotta have a house like this for sure. It's a very peaceful and serene environment around it. Must visit at least once for sure.
