Snake Farm: Queen Saovabha Memorial Institute

A morning at a snake farm in Bangkok, trying to overcome our Ophidiophobia. We spent about 3 hours around the farm, almost an hour was spent on the snake show. The exhibits and the show are informative.


The farm was set-up nearly 90 years ago to develop anti-venom, and still continue to do so while teaching the locals and tourists about the venomous and non-venomous snakes in the hope of educating people in how best to act when confronted with a snake. Furthermore, to help stop the unnecessary killings of endangered snakes.

Entrance Fee: 200 Baht
Show Times: Monday - Friday (9:30am - 3:30pm; 10:30am - venom extraction show; 2:00pm - snake show)
Show Times: Weekends and Holidays (9:30am - 1:00pm; 11:00am - snake show; no venom extraction)
