Last Weekend for Jim Thompson Farm Visit 2011

I’ve heard about the Jim Thompson Farm in Pak Thong Chai in the past in Nakhon Ratchasima province before but have never had the chance to visit. The reason is that it is only open to the public during a short period in the winter. This year it is open from December 18, 2010 to January 9, 2011. The farm features an eco-cultural tour showing the silk worms and mulberry farm, pumpkin patch, sunflower fields, Isan village and local artists.

I hope to go to the farm this weekend before my chance is gone for another year. It’s a three hour drive from Bangkok, so it can be a day trip for Bangkokians. It would be a great place to spend the day with the family and I think kids would really enjoy it.

  1. I finally made it to the Jim Thompson Farm!! We left Bangkok at 6:30 am to get an early start. We arrived at the farm around 10:00 and spent a few hours doing the farm tour, looking at the different exhibits, taking photos and learning about farming and Isan life. Overall, it was great. I will describe and post more photos in a later post.
