Well worth a visit if you can catch the demonstration at 14:30 of the snake handling. Cool to see the cobra's and learn about them. Everyone got the opportunity to hold a large Burmese python.

Great show @ 2:30 - Get there a bit early to secure a seat. The indoor area upstairs is very educational.

Mind this place! We visited this snake farm and feeled bad and sad. The snakes were slow and small. The snakes don't get enough food. Don't spend money here for this criminal people!

It is worth a visit. I have never seen so many big snakes. But I do not think it is a good care for the snakes especially when there are so many kids screaming. I skipped the picture taking activity in the end. The people...More

Take some of Asia’s biggest malls, hundreds of
street-side vendors and a dozen of posh hotels and
you’ll have Siam - Bangkok’s commercial district that
will make any shopper’s heart beat faster. From cheap
electronics and wholesale goods in MBK to designer
handbags in Siam Paragon, you’re almost guaranteed to
find what you’re looking for in one of Siam’s many
malls. Take a break from the commercial craze and

I believe that the venom shows are in the late morning, around 11:00am, during the week. Not sure of the weekend times or if they even do a venom show on the weekends. I would suggest going to their website for more... More
