  •   It's just a nightmare. I do not like snakes. They come to me in nightmares, but my friends persuaded me to go. Everyone liked it, except me. But in general, anyone without a phobia should like it.  more »

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • A good collection of poisonous snakes. The cobras at the show are quite scary. Highly educational for kids.
