The Jim Thompson's House & Museum in Bangkok is not only
a wonderful place to visit for the connoisseur of traditional Thai teak
houses and artifacts - the buildings are surrounded by a beautifully
arranged tropical garden where gingers, Heliconias, Calatheas and
many other plant species can be seen.
The picture above shows Alpinia purpurata with its red cones in bloom.
