One of the things to see in Bangkok, and a very pleasant introduction to Thai art, is a visit to Jim Thompson museum. The ex-OSS (what is today known as CIA) turned entrepreneur and who revived the Thai silk manufacturing was also a passionate art collector. And what better setting for sculptures, glassware and traditional furniture than a group of traditional Thai houses in the middle of Bangkok? Even if a visiting a museum is not high on the to-do list in Bangkok – this one is a very refreshing and pleasant experience.
