Bangkok - Jim Thompson House
When he was holidaying at the Cameron Highlands in 1967, Jim Thompson mysteriously disappeared while taking an afternoon walk in the jungle. He was never found, and till today nobody knows what happened that fateful day.
A lover of Thai art and architecture, Jim Thompson was an avid collector. For his house in Bangkok, he brought together a few traditional Thai houses - mostly from old Thai capital Ayudhya, and assembled them in a lush tropical garden. The houses are fine examples of traditional Thai architecture, and tastefully decorated with his vast collection of antiques and Thai art.
