Here is some general information about snakes in Thailand to put your mind at ease about the danger of venomous snakes in the country.
There is little to be afraid of if you are coming to visit Thailand for a few days, even a month. You are not likely to see any snakes at all unless you are out specifically looking for them. Even then, sometimes when I go looking, I don’t find any snakes after hours of looking. A friend just north of me in Hua Hin told me that he and another two guys just went out for 6 hours the other night and found nothing. That is the way it goes sometimes.
The video below covers the reality of life in Thailand and whether you will see snakes, and what to do when you do see them.
Each area of the country is slightly different, but snakes exist all over Thailand. Just get used to that idea. Most snakes cannot harm you. All snakes prefer NOT to harm you. They just want to be left alone. They’re not social like puppies and kittens.
Watch this video for information about Thailand snakes in general. If you have any questions, just comment or write me an email. Cheers!
