Jim Thompson House is a historic landmark for Thailand. We feel really privileged to have the chance to bring a public event to the space, which isn’t an opportunity offered lightly.


To keep the house looking the way it always has, we have a few easy rules for Fruitfull visitors to follow:


  1. This is a cashless event. Your RFID wristband grants access to the event spaces, and is your way to pay for everything inside. Visit the top up stations to add value to your wristband, and get a refund on your way out.
  2. No outside food or drinks inside the event. There’s plenty here already.
  3. Bring your ID with you to pre-register upon arrival. Thai photo ID or government-issued passports are accepted. Once you pre-register, we’ll swap your ticket for a cashless wristband that you can use to pay for everything inside the event.
  4. No pets are allowed on the grounds or in the spaces. 
  5. No smoking inside the venue. The house is a collection of historic wooden buildings, so this one should be obvious. Take your smoke break outside.
  6. No drones, pro camera gear, or weapons.
  7. Fruitfull reserves the right to allow or not allow entry to any participant without reason.
  8. No single-use plastics permitted inside the event.
  9. If you have parked at the Siam Motors parking building, make sure you get your parking ticket stamped at the event before you return to your car.
  10. Sort your waste. We’re providing bins for everything, please do your part by separating food waste, recycling, plates and packaging, coconuts, and non-recyclables.
  11. Bring an empty belly and an open mind.
  12. Pace yourself—there’s a lot to see, do, taste, and sample.


Ticket rules:

This is the serious stuff that ticket holders should familiarize themselves with. 


  • Official Fruitfull tickets can only be purchased online via Ticketmelon or at the gate. Tickets from unauthorized sources will not be accepted.
  • General admission tickets grant access to the event and overall grounds at Jim Thompson House Museum. This includes the pop-up kitchens, talad and market, workshops and activities, street food, and bars.
  • Tickets to reserved experiences, such as masterclasses, chef’s tables, and toh Jeen Chinese banquet tables must be purchased in advance in order to participate. 
  • All online tickets will be exchanged for a Fruitfull cashless wristband upon entering.
  • Replacement of damaged wristbands will incur additional charges.
  • By purchasing a ticket, you agree to all terms and conditions.
  • All sales are final. 


Arrive early, and come hungry. It’s going to be an adventure.
