For such a little amount of money the Snake Farm is a great way to spend a few hours. I would definitely recommend coming to one of the two shows available as otherwise (unless your a big snake fan) the snakes might become a bit repetitive. The show was brilliant, if a little scary. The handlers were professional and the... More

The work by the Siam Red Cross is beautiful, very educational and fun at the same time. Go on a public holiday and it's free :) we did, om Mother's day (Aug 12). The python pictures at the end are great, and all staff have an excellent command of English. Just a five min walk from Sala Daeng BTS station... More

We went to the Snake Farm on a Friday, both for the venom extraction (at 11.00 a.m.) and for the snake show (around 2.30 p.m.). The entrance fee is 200 baht and you can use the ticket again if you return the same day. A good option in between the shows is the Jim Thompson House, which is quite close.... More

I liked the exhibits as well as the live snake handling show. Exhibits and museum in the morning and snake handling in the afternoon. If you can only do one, do the snake handling exhibit. For photos sit in the front row. If you are a snake phobic you may want to sit in the last row... or not go... More

We visited the daily snake show where the staff showed Cobras and other local snakes. After the show all got the chance to hold a big Python. The exhibit in the main building shows several species even if most are dead.

Really cool place to learn about snakes, snake-bite treatment, and see some snakes in action. It costs maybe $2 and there are great live shows daily (included in the entrance fee). A couple of the negative reviews mentioned caged bears and monkeys, that is not this place. I believe they meant to review Thonburi Snake Farm and have posted comments... More
