  • Highly recommended, not only because great and informative but also super presents. At the same time support a good social cause (Red Cross) with the low entry. Very attentive and friendly staff. Who wants to see everything, but must be at 11: 00, only at the time the presented collection of poison. Is sometimes not properly described on the Internet.

  • We had time before our flight and I was looking for something interesting to do with a 8 and 10 year old. I found this on Trip Advisor and was very happy with the experience. Go during the week if you...  more »
  • Near MRT Sam Yan Station, the Snake Farm. Snake show will start from 2:00 PM. Way to buy a ticket once, and is free to day comings and goings. (You may enter and leave as you please.) Snake show, picked up all kinds of snake staff, was introduced. Families with children, so much fun. Last guest pick up snakes, is a photograph. A very lively atmosphere and fun. By the way, snake exhibit, of course. I think I can, because this Snake Farm is the Metropolitan Bangkok's top tourist attractions.

  • Interesting place. You can understand the various types of snake and the dangers they can cause with their poisonous bites. In the structure the snakes of venom are studied to create effective antidotes that help save lives. Also beautiful is the show with the various types of snakes (including the king cobra), in the end they keep on the shoulders of visitors a huge python. Amazing!
  • Just amazing!!! Great value for the price. Do not miss the snake presentation in the afternoon. One of my best experiences in Bangkok.
  • The snake farm to visit in Bangkok. I was impressed how professionally they seemed to handle the snakes. Ask for the venom extraction show, should be at 11 on weekdays. At the snake show (at 14.30 at least on weekdays) you get to hold a Burmese python - really well fed!
  • At first I thought the entrance fee of 200baht was a bit steep. That was before we realised that there is a whole museum and a whole floor with further terrariums in the building. We spent several hours as we waited for the snake handling show which did not disappoint. Can only recommend a visit!
  • Worth a visit if you've seen most of the other things in Bangkok. The snake show was quite impressive!
