You must go and see the snake farm. Not only for variety of snakes present, also because you dont see many snakes at other tourist places,

This a unique -- dare I say NICHE -- attraction in downtown BKK. Unless you are a true snake fancier, there are dozens of better places to spend your time while in BKK. It is operated by the THAI RED CROSS for the purposes of...More

We came there at 11:00 to watch the venom milking and returned at 14:30 for the snake show. Our 4 years old daughter enjoyed both shows very much and learned a lot about snakes.

This place is very interesting and great to spend a couple of hours. Adults cost 200 baht, with the money going to the Red Cross research centre. Lots of different species and information to take in. Try and go weekdays at 14.30 for the live...More

Very enjoyable and relaxing morning learning about snakes. The handlers were friendly and informative. Make sure you go during a show!

This is basically the underground version of the BTS Skytrain, except that it extends far further out, enabling people to live and commute further out from the City, without having to join horrendous traffic jams every morning, starting at 5.30 am !

Yes, you can go in and out as many times as you want during one day! But you need to show your ticket every time!

You can hold only the albinos python. all the other snakes are quite dangerous, so you won't be allowed, but you can take pictures of all the snakes.
