Samui Crocodile Farm & Snake Show Times, Animals, Prices & Hours
The local crocodiles come in many sizes, ranging from small ones to those up to 5 meters in length. Experts have been able to train the resident crocodiles on the farm so that you can be assured of a thrilling time.
The trainers at the park allow the audience to see them up close; one show that must not be missed is the act where a trainer uses the crocodile as a chair – without any protective gear at all! The snake shows are equally fun to watch; it involves the trainers using live snakes as a necklace, and in some cases, the snakes are even put into their trainers’ mouths!
Aside from that, there is also a small but educational taxidermy exhibition. Samui Crocodile Farm features a souvenir outlet where visitors can take home a wide range of crocodile products including t-shirts, handbags, belts, key rings, and more to remind you of your visit. Visitors are also encouraged to explore what the rest of the park has to offer; there is a shop selling refreshments, and there are plenty of shaded areas to rest in if it gets too hot.
The farm is located behind the airport in Bophut, and it’s very easy to find. It’s open every day from 8:30am to 5PM. Make sure to catch at least one of the daily crocodile and snake shows.
