If you have an afternoon to kill, I think going to the snake farm and then to Lumpini Park is a good idea. The farm was interesting and I learned a lot about snakes, but it's not a "must-see" attraction. Enjoyable and different, however. After the farm and the park, catch the sky train to the malls to cool down!

It's absolutely amazing how they handles the snakes. Seeing the cobras and especially the King Cobra is quite fantastic. Can recommend going there to see the show and the venom extraction. Check timings.

The snake farm is an interesting place where visitors can learn a lot. On my last visit I went to a "special" facility where visitors can watch snake farm employees extract cobra venom.

I was looking for something within walking distance from the hotel and found this gem. Shaded, not too busy and plenty of snakes to see. The 11am snake handling show was very educational. This is perfect for all ages

We came by MRT and from Samyan station we walked some minutes turning left at the corner than walk straight and the snake farm is on... More

Felt like something different so decided to take a look at some of the more dangerous Thailand wildlife. Very informative tour about the different snakes in the region, great for families if not squeamish
