We caught a taxi out to the snake show only to be told it was finished for the day. It was 1 pm on a Wednesday!

I would call it a "must", when visiting Bangkok. It is easy to find and near BTS and MRT not far from Silom Road.

You must go to the show in the afternoon if you want to hold a snake and get a photo with it. The website has the times listed.
