Sightseeing near Jim Thompson House

After visiting this beautiful museum head over to Siam Square, considered the best place for high-end shopping. This buzzing area is surrounded by swanky shopping malls interlinked via a series of walkways. MBK Center and Siam Center are the most popular malls as they price their fashion items way below Western standards. Siam Paragon is a slightly less popular shopping mall, but only because locals cannot afford the kind of designer accessories on sale here from brands such as Louis Vuitton and Gucci.

Transportation near Jim Thompson House

Bangkok’s public transport network is its pride and joy, with its BTS Skytrain covering most of the downtown district, with stations close to the majority of attractions. The Bangkok MRT Metro is a subway system that has a wider reach outside the downtown area, and interchanges with the Skytrain at several points. The Airport Rail Link runs from downtown to Suvarnabhumi International Airport. For short journeys by road, there’s the option of tuk-tuks, taxis or motorcycle taxis, but the city’s horrendous traffic problems make the Skytrain or metro the best ways to get around.
