Located around 260 km from Bangkok in Pak Thong Chai district of the Northeastern province of Nakhon Ratchasima, Jim Thompson Farm was founded in 1988 as a production site for silk cocoons and a mulberry plantation for silkworms.
The annual Jim Thompson Farm Tour was introduced in 2001, as an opportunity for the public to visit the over-600 rai Farm and learn something of its agriculture and the life cycle of silkworms, to stroll through its colourful fields, buy fresh fruits and vegetables, and admire the picturesque scenery.
Jim Thompson Farm also aims to help preserve and convey the cultural heritage of the Northeastern region. The on-site Isan Village features traditional-style houses and various village ceremonies, and folk dances are performed, while sculptures and artwork by local artists are also on show throughout the Farm.
With its theme this year of ‘Isan Flowers Fest’, Jim Thompson Farm is inviting people to come and benefit from the positive energy of its sprawling field of flowers, and to revitalise and get inspired for the coming year at nine ‘check-in spots’ that offer wonderful photographic opportunities. These ‘check-in spots’ feature auspicious meaningful names; such as, Shine Bright Like the Sun (Sunflower Field), Piles of Gold (Pumpkin Patch) and Everyday Joyful Greeting (Seven-coloured Flower Yard).
