My goodness, it can leave you cold blooded. A good display of the most venomous snakes, and what the man can do with them. Most ladies would not feel comfortable .

A really nice place to visit for a couple of hours in an afternoon - if one likes snakes! It's a Red Cross Centre which houses snakes for venom extraction and educational purposes. It's for a good cause.

We spent 4 days in Bangkok, visited many temples, enjoyed street food...but the Snake farm was a thing to remember. You see big snakes live and you can hold it. And its not even expensive, 200 THB per person.

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.

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.
