    The Cobra Show Phuket is the place to observe some of the many reptiles native to Thailand. The snake farm tour lasts 15 minutes, with dozens of snakes (both venomous and non-venomous) on display.

    The Cobra Show features cobras, king cobras and mangrove snakes. You’ll be amazed at the courage of the people handling and even kissing these highly dangerous creatures. You’ll also have the opportunity to touch, handle and be photographed with a python. There’s no set schedule for the Cobra Show – they start as soon as there are enough people to watch them.

Tour guides brief you on the safety aspects then escort you along natural tracks through rubber plantations and jungle.

    Children from 3 to 8 years old can be passengers, and instructions and proper training on the 8,000-sq-m land are given before starting the tour. A tour lasts 30 minutes and costs about 1,000 baht.

    Paintball Asia and Airsoft BB Gun

    • Adventure
    • Group

    Paintball and airsoft share a lot of similarities, with the main difference being the ammunition the guns shoot. Paintball markers shoot coloured paintballs (hence its name) while the more realistic-looking airsoft guns use plastic pellets. Both are very entertaining, high-intensity team-building activities. If you want to play with more people on the field, the local airsoft community plays at Phuket Shooting Range on Sundays.

    Airsoft BB Gun and Paintball Asia have 2 different battlefields: in the woods and in ‘town’. All equipment, protective gear and clothing are provided. Prices vary according to which game you play and how much ammunition you want.
