    I can only agree with the previous positive reviews. This visit was unexpectedly fun and educational. Be sure you get the show picks up. Accessible via BTS Silom, within a 10-minute walk.

    The snake handling show was very educational and entertaining. We were suprused at how up close we were able to be. The host was one of the funniest and engaging presenters of any talk I've ever heard. Thai and English. Admission was 200 and well worth it. The staff gave plenty of time at the end for all guests to take pictures with a Burmese python.

    The snake show was very interesting, slightly sensationalist but therefore engaging for a large audience. They could have emphasized the fact that snakes rarely attack if not provoked and thus shouldn't be killed. Apart from the show there was a large amount of exhibits to see snakes. Don't forget to go inside to the 2nd floor for more details and educational information about snakes in Thai and English. Altogether this place was well worth it even without specific interest in snakes.

    Good variety of snakes on display. Also has an indoor museum with AC that you can walk around on the 2nd floor with facts, history, and some videos to watch. They also do a live snake venom milking everyday at 11am inside the indoor ampitheater and an outdoor petting and picture taking with snakes everyday around 2pm.

    Come early and get the front row for show time. Either of the two seating areas is fine. Just stick to get the front row.
