The first impression of this snake farm may be that it is not a big place. In second instance you realise however that snakes don't take up a lot of space and there is enough to see to keep you occupied for an hour or two. Make sure you arrive before 11am (weekends and holidays) or 2:30pm (weekdays) for the... More

As they say this is world's 2nd oldest snake farm & you can actually feel the same being there. It a combination of institute as well as a snake farm. For a little entry fee they charge, you can actually get the close view & information on close of 100 types of snakes. It is a very well maintained campus... More

You should go here and visit as long as you do it at the show time. It's both a snake show and they tell you in Thai and English about snakes in general. After you can walk around and see snakes in cages from a safe distance and if you dare you will probably be offered to hold a snake... More

We went to the 2:30 show. The handlers bring out different snakes & describe things about them. After the show you can go up & have your picture taken with a Boa Constrictor around you. We felt that it was well worth the money to get in.

I did miss both the venom extraction and free photo because I arrived late. Ended up walking around for 5 minutes and leaving. Also lady at the ticket booth tries to trick you into paying 100 bath as donation when asked for ticket. Wouldn't mind that if she was honest.

Located behind the Red Cross hospital, make sure you take in the snake show. It's not worth a visit unless you can see the show where the handlers bring out the snakes and tell you about them. There are many snakes to view, in cages and behind glass, which you can easily see in under 45 minutes. At the end... More

i I like snake park too much for a very good collection of reptiles of different spices. The white snake is very lazy and spitting snake impresses everyone. The pathons and cobras are charming to see.

Larger than thought. Very well maintained, different species of Asia. Good information about snakes. After show (11.30 AM and 2.30 PM) there is no reason at all visit anymore those "snakeshows" usually here are presented. Spent nearly two hours and really worth that 200 baht.

This place is difficult to find as we walked down to find it. It is behind the Red Cross hospital but not well sign posted we kept having to ask and ask to find it. It is a fascinating place set up originally to work on anti venoms for all types of snakes. The staff expertly handle the snakes on... More

The snake farm puts on a very good exhibition, one in the morning and one in the afternoon I think. Do your homework and find out when it is and visit the farm/museum to take in an exhibition. It is just a few minutes walk from Pat Pong market area
