For a whole day tour. Very cheap.
|Well, if you are
going to stay in Bangkok, one of
the very nice places to visit would be the Jim
Thompson house. You can get there very easily
on BTS, you simply ride it to Siam square, then
take the next line to National Stadium. From there,
it's easy to follow the signs and walk to the Jim
Thompson house. When you are walking toward
the Jim Thompson house you will pass souvenir
shops. Now these shops are very reasonable and
you will enjoy bargaining. In fact, if you simply look
at something long enough the price will come down.
However, if you go to the Jim Thompson house and
you try to buy souvenirs there you will pay through
the nose. However, it is inexpensive to visit the houses.
And it is very interesting because they have good
English-speaking guides that tell you all about the
development of Thai silk which Mr. Jim Thompson
was responsible for. This is probably one of the most
delightful trips you can take while in Bangkok.
