An exterior view of the Jim Thompson House

The Jim Thompson House is one of our favorite havens in the city. Once the private home of silk merchant and OSS officer Jim Thompson, who mysteriously disappeared in the Malaysian highlands in 1967, it is a lovely amalgam of authentic old Thai homes.

Thompson is credited with single-handedly reviving the Thai silk industry. He was also a collector, and the house is filled with valuable antiques and artifacts. After the tour, slip away to the café, where you can sit for a while in the quiet and enjoy a refreshing green papaya salad and glass of iced tea.
