Queen Saovabha Memorial Snake Farm

The farm staff run an educational program twice a day on week days at 11:00 and 14:30, and at 11:00 only on weekends.

No pic at the moment -- Sorry!

The educational lecture is informative and brief, and provided in Thai and English.

Afterwards, the crowd shifts from the lecture hall to the show ring, where snakes are showed to the crowd, venom milking is performed, and the snakes are fed.

It's actually quite well done, and one comes away with new respect for the trouble it takes to manufacture anti-venom.

Admission to the attached museum afterwards is included. 200/50 baht for adults/children.

How to get there
The snake farm is in the scientific division of the Thai Red Cross Society in the Queen Saovabha Memorial Institute, next to Chulalongkorn Hospital. When you enter the gate, follow the road around to the left, then straight ahead. The closest BTS is Saladaeng from where it is about a 15-minute walk.
