Very interesting show can hold a snake and take photos not many snakes to see but the highlight has to be the performance show with many snakes to dodge for the handler

Our driver recommended this place so we stopped. 500 baht per person is really steep for what you get. Run down place and a few snakes. Really dirty and run down. To top it off, a morbidly obese Arabic kid sat down in front of me. His weight was enough to bend the wooden bleacher in front of me and... More

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.
