Visited with 3 young children. We all loved: - the show with king cobras, rat snakes and python. It's a must if you visit - the snake exhibition and educational explanation of snakes and their role in nature - accessibility, it is in the center of Bangkok with metro and sky train stations quite close. We took taxi from erawan.

Great activity for kids or adults looking to do something little different. Right surawong intersection. Good assortment of snakes nd well kept grounds/facilities. On the downside, the handlers during the show try to agitate the snakes to get them into an aggressive pose to please the crowd. Personally, i find that disrespectful to the snakes.

This is not really a mainstream attraction and don't expect a huge wildlife park but there are a fair amount of live specimens inside and out as well as many educational aids inside as well. We did not make the morning venom extraction but saw the afternoon snake show which was excellent if a little shocking for the faint hearted!... More

Nice place to visit with your family, especially snake show, where you can take a photo with real snake in the price of a ticket.

This place is OK for about 2hrs if you catch the snake show. Not as good as is was a few years ago but worth the trip. 200bt pp entrance and a short walk from the underground train station. It can get hot as most outdoor places in Bangkok are. The is an air con museum/display building which is informative... More

This wasn't a top priority for my itinerary from the get-go, but I am glad I found myself at the Snake Farm. Helpful staff and a really great, informative snake show. Apparently they also have demonstrations of venom extractions, but I missed that. The specimens were impressive, and the museum was surprisingly large and enjoyable. Facilities were clean and well-maintained.... More
