Snake Farm was originally designed to make anti-venom for poisonous snake bites. until very recently they even had the horses on site that they inject with the venom. Of course nowadays modern science makes it without the need for the horses :). I learned this at the farm! Thailand has 60 types of venomous snakes! There are a very large... More

Nice snake show at 2:30. Lasts about 30 minutes. Handlers come out one at s time each with a different snake. A commentator gives lots of info on each snake in both Thai and English. All sorts of snakes :). Check it out. Also two floors of snakes. First floor lives snakes in terrariums. Second floor snake skeletons and models.... More

Really cool place, the farm itself isn't the most interesting as you are looking at snakes sleeping in different cages, but the show that was at 2:30 was so cool. They bring out cobras, let you hold one of the pythons. If you are going to miss the show, don't come and come back another day where you can make... More

At 14:00 there is an outdoor demo with snakes and explanation in English. Try to sit at the front row, you then see snakes best. Weekdays open... More

A really interesting and informative show of various snakes, the highlight of which are the cobras. But there's more to it that just a show, the exhibitions aim to inform people about the importance of snakes to the normal Thai ecosystem. Interesting for adults and children.

I came here with my 6 year old nephew and here is what he thought... "I would highly recommend snake farm to both adults and children because you get to see loads of slithering snakes up close. My favourite part was holding the yellow burmese python after watching the highly skilled handlers presenting some of their creatures". I was sceptical... More

The snake show was so informative. We started to wonder how many snakes we were missing out in our daily travels--a bit scary when you think about it. So many poisonous varieties blend in with their surroundings. It was fascinating to learn the different modes of attack that each has.

We went to the Red Cross Snake Farm in August with my 6 year old son. The name snake farm worried me as I thought it was going to be an overly commercialised tourist trap, how wrong I was. It is an amazing little gem of a attraction. The snake extraction exhibit at 11:00 am was hugely informative as were... More

We were positively surprised by this place. Coming from Europe, it kind of feels right to go to a snake farm when in Thailand. A lot of snakes to see, and interesting information in the museum part.
