  • Indoor exhibit is quite nice. Outdoors could use some renovation. It's worth a visit if you are planning to see the show which was fun. The announcer was great! Unfortunately, it's another venue with tourist dual pricing. Even living in Thailand for a decade with a local driving license doesn't get you local price which is printed in Sanskrit so foreigners can't read it. I don't mind paying a bit more if it goes to a good cause like the Red Cross but paying 200 THB vs 50 for locals is a bit of a slap in the face.
  • What could be a great educational opportunity is sadly just a show for personal excitement. While we thought, this snake center would try to educate (local and foreign) people, how to live in the same environment without interfering too much with each other, it was actually mostly about snakes in small cages and a show, in which they make the snakes angry so they hiss at each other and at the staffs shoes. It would be such a great opportunity to take the fear of many people and transform it into a healthy respect. To learn things about the relationship, how to react when you encounter certain snakes and which snakes are the few, that actually might hurt you. I hope their program will be advanced into this direction in the future.
