TOUR JIM THOMPSON HOUSE+SEA LIFE OCEAN WORD+MADAME DE TUSSAUDS MUSEUM – ON PRIVATE BASIS –

INTRODUCTION TO JIM THOMPSON HOUSE. The Jim Thompson House is a museum in Bangkok dedicated to the self-made American entrepreneur James H.W. Thompson. It was formerly the house of James H.W. Thompson. James H.W. Thompson established the no world renowned Jim Thompson Thai Silk Company. James H.W. Thompson was awarded the Order of the White Elephant, a decoration bestowed upon foreigners for having rendered exceptional service to Thailand, for his contribution to the development of the Thai Silk industry. The museum houses all the artifacts, artworks and other souvenirs that James H.W. Thompson collected from Thailand, Burma, Cambodia and Laos. The museum itself is a masterpiece in Thai traditional architecture. It consists of six traditional Thai-style houses and sits on a klong (canal) across from Bangkrua. In 1967, James H.W. Thompson went for a holiday to the Cameron Islands in Malaysia. He set out for a walk in the surrounding jungles of Cameron Islands and never returned. The legend of his life, work and disappearance has endured on since then.

 

ABOUT MADAME TUSSAUDS MUSEUM. Madame Tussauds Bangkok is no old-fashioned wax museum. For the entertainment value and a chance to rub shoulders with world celebrities, heads of state, activists, sports heroes and heroines, legendary artists, and even royalty, the museum is worth checking out.
With 10 exhibit rooms decked out in real-life themes, the museum feels more like a journey from one time-warp to the next – Lady Di next to Mao Zedong, Pablo Picasso and his Cubist painting next to Thailand’s leading and somewhat eccentric forensic pathologist Dr. Porntip Rojanasunan in her full rock star regalia, Barak and Michelle Obama in their Oval Office next to Aung San Suu Kyi and the Dalai Lama.
Out of the 10 rooms, The Royal Room is the most elegant and culturally significant, as it showcases the wax figures of HRH Prince Mahitala Thibed Adulyadej and HRH Princess Srinagarindra, the late parents of His Majesty the King. All the decorative elements in this room are meticulously planned down to the tiniest details, whether the royal costumes, colour scheme, floral graphic patterns and music, all of which received the Royal endorsement from the Thai Royal family. This is the only room in which you are not allowed to touch the figures.
A controversial political personality, Chairman Mao seems to get more attention from visitors than Princess Diana or Queen Elizabeth II. But the most photographed is probably a section of the Oval Office, with the U.S. President and First Lady posing by the festoon curtains.

 

SIAM OCEAN WORLD BANGKOK. This underground aquarium, one of the largest in Southeast Asia, will dazzle you with innovative world-class exhibits and over 30,000 curious looking creatures from various depths and aquatic regions across the globe.
Meet some of the world’s record holders, transported all the way from the Amazon River or the Jurassic period when dinosaurs still roamed the earth. Greet the ocean’s deadliest predators in the 270-degree underwater tunnel, sneak a peek into the open ocean from a glass-bottom boat, or, if you really can’t resist, dive in and have a swim amongst the sharks and rays. For kids, a few hours spent at the Siam Ocean World will be as educational as it is exhilarating and memorable.

 

The World’s Ocean in Seven Zones. Your journey into the Big Blue begins with a prelude at the ‘Weird and Wonderful’ zone, which houses an impressive collection of rare and bizarre-looking marine creatures, such as striped frogfish, garden eel, nautiluses and gigantic spider crabs. The ‘Deep Reef’ features some of the most fascinating reef dwellers in the world; among them, bat fish, humped head Maori Wrasse and Blue Tang.
Learn how sea animals survive in the ‘Living Ocean’, and take a hike in the ‘Rain Forest’ where ancient African lungfish, blind cave fish, giant water rats and otters are on display. Observe life on the edge in the ‘Rocky Shore’ zone, where penguins and other marine mammals learn to survive under constant change in the unpredictable environment.
Stop to feel the skin of friendly starfish in a petting pond, before continuing on to the 270-degree underwater tunnel and the ‘Open Ocean’, Asia’s largest panoramic oceanarium showcasing sharks of various types – ragged-tooth, black-tipped, leopard – stingrays and giant groupers. Just before you leave, drop by the ‘Sea Jellies’ zone and take in the theatrical display of light and musical symphony as the translucent invertebrates float about in the LED-lit tanks.

Fun for the Entire Family. If you expect more from your visit to an aquarium, Siam Ocean World won’t disappoint you. Your choice ranges from observing the marine creatures from a glass-bottom boat and touring the ‘back of the house’ to combing the ocean floor in a diving suit and 180-degree helmet as well as diving with the predators and their prey in the ‘Open Ocean’.

 

Children will love the exciting around-the-clock shows, including Shark Feeding, Rocky Shore Talk, Penguin Feeding, Diver Underwater Talk, Rainforest Zone Feeding, Animal Contact and Otter Feeding. You can even feed freshwater fish, among them the Chao Phraya River Stingray and Mekong Giant Catfish – from the Feeding Pier in the Rainforest or have the little fish ‘massage’ your feet at the Happy Fish, Happy Feet Pool. Please note that extra charges apply for each additional activity.
