Koh Samui is a town of strong character, offering visitors a huge variety of attractions, some wildly entertaining, some educational, and some just simply beautiful and tranquil. If you have Koh Samui, Thailand in your travel plans, here’s a list of this area’s “Top 5 Attractions” (in no particular order):
1. The Snake Farm
The Snake Farm is a must see spectacle for any visitor to Thailand. Whether or not you are a wildlife enthusiast, you will be amazed at what you see at the Snake Farm in Koh Samui.
Snake charmers from north eastern Thailand fondle some of the most shockingly deadly snakes in the world, including king spitting cobras, which can erupt at a mere touch, firing venom at anyone close. The show is staged in a circular arena where the snake handlers stand in a central pit. A steep wall and a moat keeps spectators from the snakes. The moat is filled with crocodiles, which pretty much scares away any snake with long term retirement ambitions. Bring your camera ! There are two shows daily at 11:00 and 14:00 hrs.
