Jim Thompson silk


Jim Thompsons Silk - it is not necessary to write a long history of Jim Thompson and his role in the emergence of the Thai silk trade.  It is certainly important and the silk produced by the company is always of high quality.

There are a number of outlets in Phuket:
Central Festival - Phuket Town
Phuket International Airport
Canal Village - Laguna
Kata Thani Beach Resort and Spa
Le Meridien Hotel
Turtle Village

but we like to shop at 'The Courtyard' because it is a Factory Outlet with a lot of discount.
