This farm is run by the Red Cross with its primary purpose being to provide anti- venom to people bitten by snakes. Lots of pythons and cobras. Snakes are kept in cages outside. An interior museum house many snakes on the main floor and snake skeletons on the second floor. Lots of information is given and the English is detailed and accurately written. The snake penis is interesting to see. At 2:30 there is a half hour snake show outside with spitting pythons and other poisonous snakes. Staff seem to enjoy themselves working with the snakes. At the end you can put a large snake on your shoulders. An easy walk from Silom around the corner on Rama 4. Walk past the Red Cross Center and the hospital. Keep walking on the right side of the road and Cross the busy Street. The farm is about 200 meters past the corner of Henri Dunat and is well marked once you cross the street. 200 baht- worth it.

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 am very interested in snakes and came to see their King Cobras and Banded Kraits in particular at close range but found plenty of other snakes that I hadn`t seen before. Don`t miss the milking session at 11am or the outdoor show at 2.30pm. THB 200 well spent ! Highly recommended ! Get off at Sala Daeng Skytrain station.
