Jim Thompson's house is a key spot for tourists and locals who are aware of the legendary entrepreneur and his role in setting up the Jim Thompson Thai Silk Company in Thailand. Constructed from six different traditional teak houses, all of the walls have been reassembled. Today, the house has been converted into a fine museum where you can find Jim Thompson's beautiful collection of art and artifacts from Thailand and Southeast Asia, comprising of sculptures, paintings and porcelain. The guided tours are extremely informative and the grounds have a bar and exhibition area. It's a must-see, especially when you consider all the mystery surrounding Thompson's disappearance.
