Snakes are some of the most misunderstood creatures on the planet. We don't need to tell you why they have such a bad rap. But you can learn about how beneficial they are at the Snake Farm in the Queen Saovabha Memorial Institute, also known as the Red Cross Institute.

The institute was founded during the early 1900s to develop the rabies vaccine, due to the tragic passing of Prince Damrong’s daughter from rabies, with the Snake Farm opening in 1923.

 The farm has large outdoor enclosures with snakes ranging from Malayan Pit Vipers, King Cobras, Pythons and many more snakes unique to the region. The best times to visit is around 2:30PM on weekdays and 11:00AM on weekends when they host talks, presentations and the famous snake venom milking.
