This place is a Snake Museum with snakes kept in glass chambers. not found it very exciting. Snake sow which happens as 2.30pm Thai time is very interesting though in which live snakes are presented in front of us which includes snakes like cobra and python all live, active and full of venom..very very interesting

I don't like snakes, but this place made it look interesting. It was nicely arranged, and they way things are organized made me appreciate mother nature much much better. Going with a Thai friend will make it much more fun.

3 yrs old daughter love this place a lot. the Highlight of this cozy farm is definitely Snake show 11:00, 14:30 2 times on weekdays. (Perhaps in weekend schedule can be changeable) King Kobra is impressive, the show is interesting. After show I can take pics with daughter. It's about 10~15 minutes walk from MRT Silom and Silom square.

It was my first time watching snakes get milked. That is a big part of why I wanted to go there. Definitely worth going to see. If you are in Bangkok, it is something to go and see.

The exhibits were not that fantastic but the show was truly excellent. Handlers brought out a variety of snakes and held them in front of our noses, including a cobra which kept trying to bite the handler. At the end were could have a whopping great python dangle around our necks which was really cool. The commentator was evry friendly... More
