Why Samui Snake Farm is special ?
For many years, Samui Snake Farm has entertained ten thousands of people and is still going strong and stronger. Samui Snake Farm also took part in two Guinness Book of World Records: "The Longest Stay with Scorpions", and "The Longest Stay with Centipedes". Here at the Snake Farm of Koh Samui you can meet the world record holders, the Scorpion Queen and the Centipedes King, and watch their courageous stunts with their creepy little friends.
There are more than 170 types of snakes in Thailand, but only 50 species are venomous. Snake charmers at the Samui Snake Farm grip the largest venomous snake, the King Cobra, with their bare hands, presenting it to the audience for a spine-tingling close look. Our advise: "You can look, but don't touch". The giant python, a resident of Koh Samui's jungle, is an animal of outstanding beauty. A close encounter at the Snake Farm is safe and an exciting experience you cannot afford to miss.

Tips for you
My six year old is all into the snakes now so for him it was a breathtaking experience. To be honest I am a bit of a non-snake guy.You can hold a decent-size python on your shoulders, see a number of snakes and there is even a crocodile. The show itself also is kind of interesting.The problem is that the place is old and worn out. I would not mention that the animal friends would have objects to see how animals are taken care of.
We got there by a motorbike from Chewang beach, using our GPS mobile facility. The road is quite good at least halfway.As we got there, we paid 300THB for each one. It's cheap.We met the lovely stuff. They are experiecned and nice. We first saw their small zoo of cages, like crocodile and a few different snakes. It became really hardcore when we also saw big jottles of dead snakes inside. It was also shocking and spectatular.The show was amazing and intersting! It looked also quite safe since you sit on back seats, behind and at higher position. It was so amazing to see the guide controls the scorpions and snakes. He's also funny. He takes as many as scorpions he has in the box to put them on his face!Go there, it's worth it.
My wife and I came early and were the only people there receiving a private show from Mr Cobra. I had previously seen a Cobra show in India and thought it was something that my wife should see as well. I wasn't really expecting that much, but was really surprised how he handled the scorpions and the cobras.It was such an intimate experience, that the snakes even got a little too close for our comfort. We quickly moved a row back when Mr Cobra sat a cobra on the fence right in front of us. I really highly recommend this place for a short stop while on the island. We definitely came away with some great stories to tell our friends and family
