This is a chance to get up and close with snakes and find out about them. There are shows where you can see and hold them (if you wish). It is a fun and informative way of getting close with are slithery friends.

There is quite a bit of time between the two shows they have so half a day can easily be wasted. However I took that opportunity to get a 2 hour massage near by. The Venom extraction isn't the most exciting if i'm being honest. However the snake demonstration is great. You learn about each snack and your get to... More

Great value for the money and interesting show. We arrived just in time for the snake show. The staff spoke great English and were entertaining with a good sense of humour. They showed us a number of different types of snakes and explained characteristics of each. At the end of the show you get a free photo with a snake... More

We paid 500 baht for 2 adults and 2 kids. The show was in a dimly lit auditorium and the acoustic was so bad we could not hear anything of what the presenter said. The show lasted 30 min only showing 4-5 cobras being milked for venom. I would skip the venom extraction at and just watch the snake handling... More

My partner and I visited the snake farm and watched the snake handling show. I would highly recommend both the farm itself and the show in particular.

This is a gem in Bangkok. The farm specialises on anti-venom research. The have two shows everyday one is Snake Handling and one is Snake venom extraction. The entry ticket is 3 GBP, personally, for a 3 pounds entry you would not get anywhere in many places. The show was to educate those present with different snakes and anti-venom extraction,... More

Good way to spend an afternoon. Time your visit to see one of the shows - standards of animal care are high, and the staff were clearly passionate and knowledgable. Perfect mix of fun and learning. Clean toilets and a nice shaded kiosk with drinks /snacks. Short signposted walk from Salom and BTS (its in the hospital grounds).

Of course, if you're into snakes like my boyfriend, this place needs to be visited when in Bangkok! As I recall, they have two shows a day - one at 11 am where they extract venom from snakes, and one at 14.30 pm where they show you snakes and let you take a photograph with a pyton snake at the...

We enjoyed the snake handling show but missed the venom milking as that demo is only available on weekdays. The air conditioned museum was well done and a God send on a hot day! Young children will love this show and adults will like the snake skeletons and skins on display in the museum. The mission of the hospital to... More
