Cobra village is just that. A small village made up of little roadside stalls where villagers sell Thai herbs and other trinkets. There is a small show put on in the middle of the village which is free to watch but people are asked to give a donation/tip at the end of the show. They do not harm these reptiles... More

It is designed for tourists. I am sure the underlying sentiment was once about the Cobra, and ensuring their survival. Now it is more about fleecing the tourist of cash. I had been lured by the mystic of the place, until the show started. It was entirely based upon making the animal strike, even though most of them just wanted... More

We were taken out for the day by Thai friends who had included this in their itinerary. I have seen similar shows previously and this was not our choice of show but not wanting to insult out friends, we went in. Standard routine with food and drink stalls. Everyone wanted a tip. I hate seeing any animal treated as an... More

If you want to experience a country style snake show up close this is the show for you. We have attended this numerous times with family and friends and although it is not a four star place itself I have given it four stars for the 'real Thailand' experience. I cant remember anyone being able to speak English but it... More

I saw this on local TV and, as I often drive past, decided to take a look. Large, dangerous snakes (including king cobras) are kept in cages and brought out for shows which involve people (some very young children) terrifying the snakes and forcing them to strike while they dodge them. Now, I know snakes aren't nice cuddly things like... More

It's a little outside of Khon Kaen. If your not afraid of snakes give it a try. They also have some other animals. Oh and nobody will speak English

It has a village of what seems like people's homes. In the beginning there's a stage with a snake show. The adults play with the king cobra. The kids play with baby snakes. There's a few cages with unhappy animals wasn't very interesting. Kind of sad. People selling things and pictures with the snakes around the village

See children fighting snakes (the show repeats every hour or so). Touch and hold some snakes if you dare. View more snakes in concrete cages. Purchase snake oil and other items if you believe. God entertainment for two hours or so. Very basic facilities (or call it authentic). Getting there requires a car, and either a good map, or spot... More

The drive is worth the effort especially when you have overseas guests and young children who are fascinated by the snakes and the show The only problem is when driving there it is poorly sign posted.
