Touristy, trite and nasty. Over expensive and nothing localised about it. Good for big tour groups. Liked nothing about it.

You get to see cobra shows and some other snakes very close. Also in the end you can take photos with a big python on your shoulder which was very... More

Having been visiting the snake farm for the past 20 years and it never gets old. It has grown so much and the exhibits are incredible. Our children loved it when they were little and still enjoy it as adults. The enterence fee goes to the upkeep of the pravillions.

I visited several snake farms over the past few years and this one was very nice. Good explanations, good variety of snakes visible, interesting details about the bones and organs of a snake etc... Too bad that few things were under maintenance (not very active maintenance though...), otherwise I would have put 5 stars. If you come late and miss... More

I went in the morning to see the venom extraction. While it was interesting, I had to spend several hours waiting for the handling show. The displays at the Snake Farm are of good quality and had a lot to teach. I think children would love it. There is an are to get lunch and a small are to grab... More

This attraction and show is great, I highly recommend it! With many venomous and non-venomous snakes and a museum to view, be sure not to miss the live snake handling show! You'll see handlers hold and display many of the deadly snakes in Thailand which gives you a real feel for how big and deadly they are. The show is... More

This place is so easy to find and it should cost about 150 baht from Khoa San. My girlfriend and I came here at the beginning of a backpacking trip around SEA for some last minute vaccines. The staff was extremely friendly and informative, the facilities clean and safe, and the cost for the vaccinations a bargain. We always felt... More

I found this place to be really good. There were many different kinds of snakes and I am generally afraid of them but here since it was professionals handling the snakes I even took a chance with Boa on my neck :). It was a wonderful feeling. I know I know you might think Boa on the neck is something... More

My boyfriend and I visited the Snake Farm due to its popularity here on Trip Advisor and were not disappointed. We planned to visit for the afternoon show (not the milking/venom extraction but the handling show) and were really happy we did. It was a truly unique and fun experience for all. The show was really fun and even though... More
