  • I am afraid of snakes, but that day, I believe that the entrance fee. Nationals of Thailand baht to 40 students. Students in uniform 20 baht for children 10 baht for foreigners. 50 baht to 200 baht, child, adult, and you will get lots of knowledge. The show has rolled snake venom. With video, you know. The name and style of snake and let you touch the Python ultra model samples lulam. A fantastically fun but was happy with the knowledge really.

  • Snake farm is a unique thing to visit as they show variety of snakes live moving here and there. Little scary though but those who really want to see it, must go!  more »
  • It was ok possible we picked the wrong time as almost all the snakes were sleeping. I suggest you go in the morning. I did enjoy it though as I'd never been before. Very cheap and good way to pass an ...  more »

  • The snake handling show was very educational and entertaining. We were suprused at how up close we were able to be. The host was one of the funniest and engaging presenters of any talk I've ever heard. Thai and English. Admission was 200 and well worth it. The staff gave plenty of time at the end for all guests to take pictures with a Burmese python.
  • A wonderful and interesting Snake Show with a lot of educational content for us to hear. Then there is also an Educational building to see - certainly worth visiting
  • I went along December 2016. I was early and that proved to be a good move ! Near to show time the people packed in. So I managed to get a front row seat. The handlers bring out different size and types of snakes and tell you all about them, I found this to be very interesting. A good show I thought and at the end you get to have your photos taken with some. I enjoyed this visit.
  • Entrance to the Snake Farm is THB200 for adults and people in the Red Cross compound are nice enough to direct you to the place from the entrance at the Henry Durant Road. Reached the place just about an hour before closing and was lucky enough to have a chance to interact with the albino python. Although I didn't get to see the venom extraction and sit in on the talk about the different snakes in Thailand, the exhibits on 2 levels of the building, along with the bigger snakes housed in the open area were still interesting to learn about. I really loved how the educational videos were animated, even with the one in English, to make it understandable to even those who didn't understand the language. There were interactive sections suitable for young visitors, and sections that would still interest the older visitors. Really educational and I would like to go back to get the whole experience.
  • Small farm - understandable as the tourism part is secondary to the important anti-venom and research work they do - but the show is fabulous fun for young and old alike - and at the end, you can take your picture with a huge python.
