“ssss”
Reviewed June 17, 2013

We arrived just as the place was closing and found although we had missed the shows and tour, we could walk around ourselves for free, which itself was fun, except when we nearly got locked in the inside snake bit for the night...

“Excellent day out”
Reviewed June 9, 2013

I visited at the beginning of May, and thought it was fantastic. Great that your ticket allows you to leave and come back so that you can see both the morning venom extraction and the afternoon demonstration of the snakes. The guys who do the shows are great and very professional. The exhibition in the upstairs is very informative too. Definitely worth the bus ride!

“Snakes & More Snakes”
Reviewed June 6, 2013

Shows a couple of times per day. Not expensive for Thais or non-Thais (but the prices are not the same...Thais much cheaper). Bring out a few different types of snakes. Most impressive is the King Cobra.

“good if you have some time to kill”
Reviewed June 6, 2013

My fiancée and I stumbled upon this place one day while we where out walking around the city and thought we might as well give it a try. Unfortunately we missed the show and from the reviews on here it is worth seeing but even if you miss it like we did. It is still a fun little place to spend half an hour or so. They have a lot of snakes and the actually history of the place is pretty interesting too. But if you want to kill some time and want to try something different and a little educational then it's not bad.

“Great snake show”
Reviewed June 3, 2013

Awesome show that was very insightful. The host is a very jovial fellow getting right into the show.

The King Cobra was massive, and the Cobras were small but entertaining.

The finale of the show they bring out a long python that you can take a photo with for free.

Tip: Skip the morning milking show, and opt for the snake show at 2:30pm each day.

At 200 baht, great value for money.
