“Great Fun but Scary !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2014 via mobile

I went with a friend we met in Thailand as our girlfriends didn't like snakes :)

We had a great time here, the farm is very small with just a few snakes but the guys there are so funny and will happily show you all their scars from snake bites over the years !

We were holding a rainbow snake and the guy slipped a snaked into my friend pocket !! Not something for the faint hearted !

The show itself is amazing, they use cobras, king cobras, mangrove snakes and water wrestling with a python !

I got into the ring with a mangrove snake which was terrifying but a great experience if you like snakes !

“Show=good Farm=pathetic”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2014 via mobile

Went to the cobra show yesterday. We have been once before a few years ago and nothing has changed. On entering the whole complex we thought it must have been updated since now there is go karting and other things to do but the snake farm is more run down, dirty a waste of time. Cost 800tbht to see a good cobra show but unfortunately the farm is badly neglected with faded ripped signs on the cages which were also dirty and un cared for and poor animals caged for the rest of their lives. A crocodile of around 1 1/2 metres long was stuck in a tiny cage for its size and a poor mongoose was running backwards and forwards on a metre long piece of wood like it was crazy. This place needs a serious overhaul if they expect tourists to visit it. No wonder there was only 3 other people there and they didn't even bother looking at the farmed animals. The main stage area is also in need of work with the centre stage having threadbare carpet and in need of painting. Sadly, this could be a great attraction but without some major work being done, I can't see it happening

“Cobra Show”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 27, 2013

Live snakes and kissing of snakes by the guy was exciting.
Good to see the different types of snake and take photo while carrying it.
