It’s a nice old house that displays southeast asian artwork and thai silk. Jim Thompson was an american soldier turned businessman who revitalized the Thai silk industry. His thai silk fabrics were used in the film The King and I with Yul Brynner.
Jim Thompson mysteriously disappeared though. He was never found. But his company remains.
Back to the house: it was worth touring it. The guide told us the story of Jim Thompson and how he decorated his home. Alas, cameras are not allowed inside the house.

I bought a kid’s book about the place and an eyeglasses case. I saw a tight-fitting colored sweater that cost 5000 pesos, but I controled my buying impulse. Now months later, I feel like I should have bought it. Never have I seen the likes and quality of it at the same price. In Europe, such cost much more.
