What a turn back in time. The displays are very Thai, its a low budget affair, but with great pride displayed by the staff. This is so workplace health and safety unsound that Aussies would close it down. Great show, centipedes, scorpions (held one) Cobras (held one) Mangrove snakes and more. The boys in the ring earn their keep, I... More

So I didn't really know what to expect but the snakes are in tiny cages that are unhygienic and nothing like their natural environment. There is also a huge crocodile that is in a tiny, empty cage. This was horrible to see. The show is basically just tormenting the snakes for the audience to get a reaction, these snakes are... More

We came upon this little snake farm as we drove around Koh Samui and really enjoyed it. It's quite low key and not at all glitzy but the owner was quirky, amusing and knowledgable about the snakes. All in all we had a great time and it was an adrenaline rush!!! I recommend it to people looking for an up... More

Good place to see snakes up close and personal. The shows are good and the performers experts in snake handling.

I had no expectation as to what this visit would be like, but in retrospect as an animal lover I should have looked at the reviews (and would and probably decided against going). The people who worked there were very friendly and welcoming but the conditions for the animals were appalling. When I thought more deeply about it a couple... More

I'm sorry to say this but I expected more. I think this was a shabby place and the conditions for the animals could be a lot better. Personell was friendly and nice, but unfortunately I would not recommend to visit this place.
