We were greeted by the security guard aka magician who performed a good magic trick with a ice cream stick. What a great start of the morning! The displays and snakes looked clean and well looked after outside. Inside, all the attractions had signage in...More

This is not so much a tourist exhibit but a working snake hospital(?). Extremely interesting and I would go for a second visit.

The Queen Saovabha Institute actually performs the very important function of developing essential anti-venom - medication that is has worldwide relevance for snakebite victims everywhere.
