    Many people forget some shots before they go. If you are going to be travelling in SE Asia for a while it is good to know you can get shots here. The snake farm in Bangkok was a World Health Organization affiliated place at one time. (Still is?) I got shots there at a fraction of the cost of my home country. Hep/typhoid/tetanus booster/rabies/cholera...they can sort you proper if you skipped something and want to feel better about it.
    Just sharing the info!

    Located in the Thai Red Cross Institute, this organization produces anti-venom serum for snake-bite victims nationwide.

    Just found this blurb online. All the cabbies know the Snake farm near RAMA IV road. Near Sala Daeng bts station.
