Been trying to look online for a showcase of snake blood but was too chicken out for actually going. Anyhow went to the snake farm, the education on venomous snakes and different types of snakes were really good. I recommend all tourists to get educated and maybe snap a picture or two with the snakes!

Try to arrive just before 11am for the venom extraction, which is well worth the 200 baht ticket. You can come back at 2:30pm for the handling show on the same ticket. Lots of big pythons!

The snake farm proved a worthwhile educational detour from shopping with family. At 200 baht for adults and 50 baht for children it was an exceptional and inexpensive outing for all! We arrived at 11am just in time to see the venom extraction. Helpful staff ensured we got to the show in time. Wow! We saw a number on Siam... More

The farm is hard to find as its inside the Red Cross site. The entrance is actually on Henri Dunand Road at the intersection with Rama IV road. We went on a weekday for the morning and watched the venom extraction with great interest and spent some time walking through the museum and looking at all of the snakes. The... More

Very interesting and spectacular show. They even let you hold a python at the end. Coming from Australia I am used to snakes but the King Cobra and other Asian snakes take things to a whole other level.

This facility, opened in 1923, serves an important function: collecting venom from Thailand's many deadly snakes to prepare antivenom to save lives. But they put on a wonderful daily show at 11 displaying the beautiful creatures before they are milked.
