It turned out that Jim Thompson House was just down the street from our motel. We wandered over there but decided against buying tickets to go inside the actual house. Instead we just enjoying the garden and little art gallery. I'm not that interested in the history of the silk industry anyway. The garden was just amazing though! Especially the MASSIVE sting ray in one of the ponds and the other pond full of huge koi that would suck on your hand if you were brave/crazy enough to stick it in.
