Great family activity, a must for anyone spending time in South East Asia, informative first aid, identification of snakes, and a show displaying the snakes by the experts

They have a fair deal of snakes from all around the world. It was good to see over 5-6 different cobra types. Then try the snake show where these guys are playing with Spitting cobras, pythons and king cobras. If you fancy your guts, they give you a huge python to hold round yourself. Remember the ticket says - the... More

I loved this place and added my photo taken at this location to my tripadvisor profile. The way the snake handlers take care of the snakes is amazing. The kids would love this place. You could see many varieties of snakes but predominently the ones found in the South East asian forests.

The snake farm in Bangkok is the location of the rabies and international medicine clinics. If you get bit by a dog or need a less expensive thypoid injection than from the hospital this is the place to go. They speak English, are efficient, and helpful. It is a wonderful old complex and easily accessed via MRT.

Pros: - only 200 THB for entry - free on public holidays - we went on this day by accident which was great - the venom... More

Having stayed away from most animal attractions in Thailand due to animal rights issues, the Snake Farm is a rare exception to these concerns. With the larger snakes housed outside in specially landscaped pens and the smaller ones inside state of the art enclosures indoors, you will find an enormous variety of snakes covering practically every variety of snake imaginable....

The zoo itself was pretty good, a large collection of different snakes. The really good bit was the show (attention only 2/day at specific hours), really worth a trip
