Bangkok Snake Farm

Bangkok snake farm is a place where you can learn about snake through the museum and the shows. If you decide to visit, I recommend you check the exhibition hours first because they are the highlight of the farm. Bangkok snake farm is recommended for visitors who come with kids. I have been there once and impressed with the snakes handling shows. You can read my post about Bangkok snake farm here.

Dialogue in the Dark

Dialogue in the Dark is a unique exhibition that you will be leaded by a guide in the darkened room and you will not be able to see things through your eyes entire the time. Well, you will have a chance to use other human senses, while you are in the room. For me, it was one of the best exhibitions I have been to. You can read my post about Dialogue in the Dark here.

Phya Thai Palace

Phya Thai Palace is not as popular as The Grand Palace and Vimanmek Teak Palace, but it is worth visiting. The palace was built during King Rama V’s reign as temporary royal residence. The buildings are in classic European and Thai style and well-maintained. You can read my post about Phya Thai Palace here.
