  • Had a rest in Unawatuna, a guy offered to go on a scooter at the snake farm in Matar. I initially twisted nose (as was the snake farm in Thailand), saying it is not worth the effort of the mole, but nothing persuaded-drove. Got from Unawatuna the scooter 50 minutes. The fact that we waited there, cannot be compared with other serpent-farms: the owner of the snakes permitted to touch the snake, fotkatsja with them, prompted what picture will be more interesting, very interesting about snakes. Price 1000 ruppij. It's worth it, we have received positive emotions, got the thrill of (but still safe, as you can not only touch the poisonous snakes) and happily went to travel further.

  • Cool to have snakes draped over you for photos. ..Not too keen on seeing Cobras being kicked and stood on to get them fired up for more dramatic photos.
  • Its good to know some snake.....
  • The snake man announced us than the price was 800rupees per person, but after the "show". Very unhonnest. But except that these few minutes were interesting, especially the noise of the cobra. Don't expect too much.
  • The show you the snakes as if you were in a museum
  • Very nice show and big variety of snakes! It is allowed to take a photos with snakes. Price per person: 800 Rs

Where to stay in Matara

A couple of hotels stand close to the train station in Matara, as well as some guesthouses located on the side streets of the Fort district. But the greatest diversity of accommodations lies down by the coast. Matara Beach has some hotels and guesthouses right on the waterfront, while Polhena Beach to the west adds sprawling resorts into the mix, as well as homestays, high-rise hotels, and eco-lodges.
