  • A fun place for children and adults. The eldest son is fascinated by serpentologiej, he really wanted to get on this farm. Turned out to be interesting for all. Terrariums on the street and inside the building (pure, sleek, cool). The second floor of the building perfectly done, informative. Several short films that explain clearly how are snakes, first aid for bites and others. Snakes are very different from uzhikov to Cobras and huge anacondas. At 11.00 and 14.30 show how fed the snake and Venom as collect. But we unfortunately to late as 11.00 in advance did not know, and wait until 14.30. Entrance adults 200 baht, 50 baht for children. For the 3-year child nothing took. Recommend. Next to Lumpini Park is located. You can visit several of these attractions.

  • Being in transit in Bangkok decided to with children go to the snake farm. On the show we were late, but in spite of this, have donated. There are many snakes, probably all in Thailand. Part of the snakes in the terraria and cells on the street, part of the just in open enclosures with high walls, where you can just look at the top and a large part of the building. The building has two floors, one many snakes, and a variety of them not living exhibits, skeletons, skins, etc. A lot of different information about snakes. Also on the second floor there are interactive movies in English about the origin of snake bites, first aid, about how the poison and others. All in all an interesting place!

  • The snake demonstration is so amazing. The MC talks in both Thai and English. Before they finished the show, they will let the audience experience the boa, it is so calm and cute. Entrance ticket costs 20 baht for Thai, not sure for foreigner. The exhibition hall is interesting too. The first floor exhibits the poison snake in glass cabinet, the second floor exhibits the snake bones and life evolution, so amazing.
  • Wow! This farm is one of the largest farms in the world! And they show really fascinating snakes - alive and and an own museum. The largest King Cobras I‘ve ever seen. And a lot of other potentially deadly snakes. The show in the afternoon is breathtaking. And you are very close (but save!): good possibility to make awesome photos. At the end and if you want you can touch a albino constrictor at the end. Entrance for adults is very cheap: 200 Bath. Children less, 40 Bath I think it was ... Summary: must see. Great place in Bangkok!
  • Our destination was Lumpini Park, the walk was pretty quick from our Airbnb. On a fence alongside the road there's an inconspicuous sign for a snake farm. Snakes are amazing so we thought we'd stop quickly to see what it's all about. There was some hesitation at the beginning because we had to pay and we weren't sure what we were getting into, but it goes to research so it felt worth it just for that. The money was more than worth the price. There are so many snakes! There's an entire outdoor snake area that has some amazing species. A two story indoor facility with a literal snake pit! King cobra - yep. Crazy vipers - yep. Our favorite were these water snakes that pulled fish out of the water to suffocate them before eating them. ...that sounds dark, but it was fascinating to watch. Anyway, we spent hours here. Watched the venom extracting show. Left to get lunch and were able to come back later with the same tickets to watch the snake charming show. We did not make it to the park that day.
  • Mixed feelings. The show itself is educational and entertaining, but tough seeing the snakes in captivity, especially the very large ones. Can't imagine they'd be happy. Understand the farm is devoted to developing antidotes for snake poison. Not very large, but can be worth a visit, especially for kids.
  • The actual show should probably be on most visitors itinerary. The show is at 2:30 , but can get over capacity. Get there at least an hour early. The left side is the primary side, if the are enough people they will show on both sides at the same time, which they make work well. The speaker is quite good. Super great for kids and education! My only objection is they charge more for foreigners, which is an ambigous, unfair and unethical practice, but I tolerate it. 50 baht for all kids and Thais, 200 baht for non-natives.
