Entrance to the Snake Farm
Run by the Thai Red Cross and slightly hidden in the Red Cross hospital, this snake farm’s goal is to breed snakes to educate and make snakebite serums.
Established in 1923, it’s one of only a few worldwide. There are daily demonstrations of venom extraction, preceded by a slideshow explaining the process.
Visitors make take photos with the snakes, but not everyone is brave enough to do it.
Opening times: Monday to Friday from 9:30am to 3:30pm, and Saturday and Sunday from 9:30am to 1pm.
Tickets: 200 baht (6 US dollars/5 British pounds/5.50 euros)
