This was a quick trip on our way to a show. Only us there but we were given the whole show which was interesting. If passing or you have an hour or two spare, you should go.

My wife and I went during our stay in Patong and had a fabulous time. Nothing in Thailand is 1st world so the state of the facilities is irrelevant (from other comments). The staff were amazing! Friendly, ready to share their knowledge and experience and very eager to give a fantastically entertaining show. Mr Snake Man was brilliant. Maybe we... More

My husband & I went to a similar show years ago in Bangkok and wanted our children to see on our return. However a few mins into the show, the rough handling in an attempt to get the snakes to strike was off putting and upsetting & we were soon regretting our decision. There are no specific show times -... More

We went to this show after going to Tiger Kingdom and when we first stopped I thought what dodgy back yard shed have we been dropped of at. When inside we were taken around and shown the snakes and cobras, one of the smaller snakes ended up in my wifes hand bag (all part of the show!!) When the actual... More

I was surprised to see this "attraction" so highly rated. Various people mentioned the appalling conditions in which the snakes are kept but still they liked it. It is only because unknowledgeable tourists support them that they are able to continue. In other countries these shows are illegal. Off soapbox now.

I didn't realise that this place could be reviewed or I would have a few years ago when we visited. Like a few others, we also had a private show just my wife and I, it was excellent being shown around the little place by a friendly girl, we got to play/ touch/ feel alot of the snakes and some...

I went to the cobra Show and at first when I got there I thought 'what a dive', but when you went inside it was amazing to see these large king cobras being poked and hissing and lunging at the keepers. I was surprised at how loud the cobras hiss and how quick they are. The show they put on... More
