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. The snake handling show and photo op is at 2:30 on weekdays and 11 on weekends and holidays. A few displays can be viewed any time, but photo op is the big draw.

  • Snake, Queen Saowapha Snake Farm, Silom and Bang Rak, Bangkok, Thailand, Asia.
