Appreciate the Northeastern Thai Culture at Jim Thompson Farm

Do you remember Wang Nam Khiao that Sukjai blogged about lately? Today Sukjai is telling you about the other place in northeastern Thailand that is near Wang Nam Khiao.

The place is Jim Thompson Farm. It dominates an area of roughly 10 Rais, featuring northeastern Thai architecture, precious culture and traditions. It demonstrates everything emerged from the folk wisdom of northeastern Thai people such as plays, foods, occupations, etc.

The highlights of Jim Thompson Farm that you cannot miss are the giant pumpkin, sunflower field, and the colorful cosmos field. They are so perfect for shooting tons of photos. And for those who favor salads, this is your heaven! Fresh organic vegetables are offered here.

As everyone knows, Jim Thompson is famous for its splendid silk products. So the procedures of silk production from nourishing silkworms to weaving silk and creating patterns are demonstrated here.

Before leaving you might as well want to pick up some fresh vegetables, souvenirs, and other products from here. But please remember, Jim Thompson Farm is only open from December to the beginning of January each year! Thus you have to wait for the next year to visit Jim Thompson Farm now. It is alright though since there are more than a number of places that you can visit in Thailand. Please keep the information Sukjai has given to you in case it comes in handy. Do not forget to take some photos for Sukjai if you have a chance to visit the beautiful Jim Thompson Farm!
