At the Stade de France, the Bataclan, in the cafes and restaurants of Paris... on Friday 13th November, terrorists killed and wounded many innocent people. And in doing so, they also aimed also to kill these places that we love, places which represent culture and a spirit of sharing.
We at WorldEventListings share the grief of the friends and families of the victims of the terrorist attacks of 13th November 2015. And we offer our unconditional support to all the cultural venues affected.
Our raison d'être has always been to share cultural information with as many people as possible. We will continue. We will win. Their failure is only a matter of time.

Description

A passion for silk.

James Harrison Wilson Thompson, a former CIA agent, moved to Bangkok after giving up his duties.

He conceived a passion for Thai silk and devoted his efforts to revitalizing the silk trade in Bangkok. He built a palatial home in the finest Siamese tradition and managed to restore the Thai Silk industry to its former glory.

These days the house is open to visitors. The grounds feature impeccably maintained gardens and exotic flora enchants visitors wandering between the different outbuildings surrounding the main house. Each room in the house is enhanced with beautiful pieces of art from Jim Thompson's personal collection. A Thai silk shop and a restaurant are also open to visitors.
