The Thai Red Cross has a travel clinic with same day appointments. You can get travel vaccines that are a fraction of the price you would get in Western countries. The snake shows... read more

The Thai Red Cross has a travel clinic with same day appointments. You can get travel vaccines that are a fraction of the price you would get in Western countries. The snake shows are outstanding. You can also see snake milking. There is a snake museum. It is a good place to spend about 2-3 hours depending on your interest.

My wife and I visited with our young daughter at the beginning of April. This place is brilliant. Make sure you time your visit to coincide with the live show (2:30pm when we visited). The presentation is entertaining and informative, presented in both English and Thai. The main building houses various snakes, providing plenty of information in an air conditioned... More

Great place. I'd recommend turning up for the venom extraction at 11am and then killing some time in the museum they have and the cafe and then staying for the snake handling show at 2pm. Museum was first class with all descriptions and videos in both Thai and English. Cafe was excellent. Cheap and super friendly staff. The staff doing... More

My mom and I went to the place during Songkran and we reached there at 11am. Regrettably we missed the petting session with the snake as it is only available from 10-11am. So for those who wish to visit the place and pet the snake please do take note of the time.

It has got a live presentation at 11 A.M extracting venom of the snakes. Meanwhile 2.30 PM show has got out door presentation with King Cobra and other snakes. The best part is the last item, they will offer a big Burmese Python to hold. The entrance fee is 200. Between the shows you can go out and come back.

3 ladies in the mid 30's went with no kids and it was pretty entertaining and educational. The long haired Asian dude who handeled the long cobra was one of the coolest looking people I have seen in a long time. Good show!

A great place to learn all about snake. From birth to bag or shoe. From picking up venom to elaborate antivenom. Really interesting. A lot of snake on display. The place looks old but this is the way it is.
