Fodor's Review

The Thai Red Cross established this unusual and fascinating snake farm and toxicology research institute in 1923, and it is well worth a visit. Venom from cobras, pit vipers, and some of the other 56 types of deadly snakes found in Thailand is collected and used to make antidotes for snakebite victims. Venom extraction takes place on weekday mornings at 11, while the snake handling show and photo op is at 2:30. A few displays can be viewed any time, but the photo ops are

the big draw.
