  • Make sure you are there for the shows. Check the times before you leave. Otherwise you are just walking around a bunch of cages with sleeping snakes hidden in bushes and under rocks.  more »
  • Great for true snake lovers if you visit at 11am or 2.30pm when the shows are scheduled. Otherwise snakes mostly sleep. Though we saw a couple that were more active than the usual. Check ahead for sna...  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.
  • 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.
  • Very well done snake focused small zoo. The snakes looked happy and healthy and the show was great. A must see if you are in Bangkok.
