    What to Expect
    Meet your driver at your hotel and board a comfortable, climate-controlled sedan for the trip to the first stop of the day, the Jim Thompson House.

    Learn the story of the American entrepreneur who helped revitalized the Thai silk industry and created a Bangkok home using historic structures from around the country. See lush teak detailing and walk through the serene garden, then take in Jim Thompson’s personal collection of fine arts, antiques, and Buddhist sculpture, as well as Burmese, Sukhothai, Suwankhalok, and Benjarong pieces.

    From there, continue to the Suan Pakkad Palace, a former royal residence with eight traditional teak wood houses and a beautiful garden. Browse a collection of antiquities that once belonged to Prince and Princess Chumbhot including the Lacquer Pavilion, built in Ayutthaya during the 17th century.

    Another highlight of the palace is a collection of Ban Chiang artifacts, pottery, tools, and glass ornaments that date back to 3600 BCE, a fascinating glimpse of early history. When your time at Suan Pakkad Palace concludes, return to the vehicle for the trip back to your hotel.
