So I have to say I'm not the biggest fan of snakes, but I heard from co-workers that this was a must see if you had kids or are interested in snakes. They were totally right. First thing make sure the place is open. Check for the hours online. When we went it was a Thai holiday and the farm... More

Had an awesome time here at the snake farm. Plenty of snake expeditions to see. Such a variety of love snakes to see and watch. Best of all was the snake handling show, showcasing plenty of snakes including the King Cobra. Best of all was allowing public to hold and handle the Siamese Python. What a beauty. Pictures and selfies... More

Really nice visit. Difficult to find initially. The farm is inside the hospital and you need to go through hospital's garden. Snake show is 11.00 and 2.30 with informations about them and on the end you can hold and take photo with huge yellow snake, which is absolutely amazing. Well worth visit.

It is a wonderful place where you can not only see a lot of snake species but can also learn snake handling and venom collection. Moreover, you can learn biological history of snakes. This is not all, I mean they also teach preventive measures for living in snake region and remedies if snake biting.

I first went when I was a kid some 40 years ago and always wanted to return. The venue has changed but for the better. I was told the former displays were changed due to the center finding out that when the pits with all the cobras were over populated, they passed disease to one another. Now more cages and... More

First visited this attraction 30 years ago and it has improved since then with a great museum which is well worth a visit. We saw the 2.30pm snake show which was ok but nothing special although they do offer for free a chance for anyone to have their photo taken with a python around their neck.

Last time we visited here it was just my husband and I 14 years ago. We remembered it was a brilliant afternoon so took our 12 and 10 year old. They absolutely loved it. We visited the exhibition first and then watched the show. Both a fun and educational afternoon, finished off with cheap drinks and ice creams from the... More

I've been here a couple of times and it's fun for the kids. They do a good snake show and you can see them extract venom from a cobra if you check the times before you go.
