Snake shows by snake charmers are the highlight of a visit to Koh Samui’s Samui Snake Farm.
Two shows a day feature cobra demonstrations from a brave handler, audience interaction with safer reptiles, creepy displays of scorpions and centipedes, and a safe demonstration of cock fighting.
The insect displays are hosted by a brave pair of people who hold the Guinness world records for handling scorpions and centipedes.The snake farm zoo also has collections of giant pythons, king cobras and the reptiles' nemesis, the mongoose.
The Samui Snake Farm is near the coast on Koh Samui’s southwestern tip.
Snake shows are held at 11am and 2pm daily.
