“Very decorative and interesting house”
Reviewed August 28, 2014 via mobile

We enjoyed looking around the house, it was very well decorated and furnished with lots of intricate detail. The whole story of Jim Thompson is intriguing, but... It was quite expensive for what it was, and a little bit out of the way. I wouldn't make a special trip to go back, but if you happen to be nearby, go and visit.

Reviewed August 27, 2014

A. Ice place to visit in Bangkok, the old Thai style house is already worth a visit without even having stepped into the Thompson house , we loved it

“Average overall”
Reviewed August 26, 2014

The price was a bit expensive I felt. It was my boyfriend and myself and we found the architecture was really beautiful but we won't be doing it again on our next trip back. This is more a tour for older people not teenagers.
