I was in Bangkok 2 years ago (not one year ago) and had a great time. And this was one of the best things I've seen. Even though that the snakes are safe, the workers are still brave handling them snakes.

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.
