During my recent weekend break to Bangkok, just a 2-hour flight, from Singapore, I visited Jim Thompson House!
How I came to know about Jim Thompson House once again shows the power of the Internet!
I was boarding at Changi Airport and was early, so stopped by an Internet station to check my mail and replied a mail to a friend, Jan, in KL. Jan was so nice to point out about Jim Thompson House in Bangkok in his subsequent reply.
