  • I always love to come to this snake farm. Opening hours vary - but currently 0930-1530 with demonstrations at 1100 and 1430. 200Bt to get in. Most of the snakes are rather inactive most of the time.  more »
  • I'm afraid of snakes, but my friend wanted to go and i went with them. It's near Lumphini Park and there's a show time to check it out. It's not just a zoo, it's a research institute, and it's not just a show. But i'm still scared of snakes.

  • 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!
