Samui Snake Farm
See some of the world’s most dreaded reptiles at Samui Snake Farm! We promise it’ll be an entertaining and educational activity for you and your family.
Samui Snake Farm; located in the quaint remote south west corner of the beautiful island of Koh Samui, near Phangka Bay; features fascinating reptiles native to the island and Thailand. Here, surrounded by Koh Samui’s all but untouched tropical jungle, you’ll learn a great deal about the farm’s wide selection of 170 snake species, of which only 50 are venomous. You can observe the Malayan Krait; one of the top ten most toxic terrestrial venomous snakes in the world, which is found in Thailand. You’ll also see the fast great King Cobra slither around and hang in its enclosure.
Yet so much more than just a snake farm, you can watch as giant jungle lizards strut around in their cages; as Samui Snake Farm’s expert guides reveal some pretty awesome facts about these four-legged reptiles.
Those looking for a more hands on experience, can sign up for a chance to wrestle a crocodile or even carry and take a picture with a Burmese Python—that is if you dare!
Another riveting attraction is the animal show, held twice daily. These star pythons, scorpions, crocodiles and even the cobra’s swift opponent the mongoose. There’s also a jaw-dropping snake & scorpion show, and the exciting cock fight, a very popular tradition in Thailand. No animals are hurt during this traditional battle of the birds.
Every animal show and guided tour incorporates the telling of fun facts and the history of the animals, including why they’re so important to Asian culture. So you and your family will leave the snake farm with amazing knowledge and insights about our reptile friends.
Indeed, if nature and animals interest you, we guarantee that a visit to Samui Snake Farm will be enjoyed by the entire family. You will all marvel at the sight of those crawling creatures and get to speak with the brave staff who’ve earned not one, but two, Guinness World Recordings for the “Longest Stay with Centipedes” and the “Longest Stay with Scorpions.” Suffice it to say Samui Snake Farm is home to the famed Centipedes King and Scorpion Queen. So maybe, just maybe, if you’re daring enough, you’ll allow a creeping creature to move around in your hand!
