Closer to Noppharat Thara Beach than Ao Nang is a Cobra Show for tourists and locals alike.

At the moment they have about 6 King Cobras, 15 Monocled Cobras (Naja kaouthia), 1 yellow/black Banded Krait, 2 great species of Burmese Python, a large turtle, a big iguana, a few Yellow Banded Mangrove Snakes, a Red Tailed Racer, an Oriental Whip Snake (Ahaetulla prasina) and a couple of Radiated Rat Snakes.

I’ve been to three Cobra Shows in Thailand and I must say that this one in Krabi is the best of all of them. I know the owner personally, he’s originally just a snake show owner… but, when he didn’t have any snake show guys to do the show at his new facility – he taught himself how to do the show. Within a couple days he taught himself how to touch the cobras on the head, pick them up, and everything he needed to do for the show.

Since then he has found a couple of good snake guys  – taught them in some cases, and he put together an exhibition that is better than other places in Thailand I’ve seen – though I won’t mention which.

The show is well worth the 600 THB ($18 USD) because you’ll see snakes you otherwise wouldn’t have.

All cobras have their teeth, venom glands, and are fully capable of killing the presenters. If you doubt that, have a look at Dom’s right thigh – where he is still healing up from a recent cobra bite.

The show is open from 9 am through 5 pm daily. There is also a Monkey Show – which can be seen for just a few more baht, sorry, I cannot remember how much.

Again, if you want a discount on seeing the snake show – let me know through email and I’ll set it up with the owner.

Don’t miss the show – I’d call it the best Cobra Show in Thailand.
