I was stationed with the 9th Infantry Division at Dong Tam, prior to the Snake Farm. I suppose as the 9th moved out, and the Vietnamese government took over this area, converted it to a snake farm. The water level was approximately 6 inches, every...More

This is a zoo for snakes. However, it is small and does not have many interesting activities. This would be more suitable for children than for adults.

This is probably the saddest part of our entire trip and I wouldn’t even give it one star! Absolutely heart broken to see the animals in such poor conditions. The “snake farm” was simply rows of small concrete cages which you could hardly see in...More

It was a combination of a snake farm and a small Zoo combination, with pretty old fashioned exhibitions and conditions for the animals. Supposedly does some good by providing venom for making anti venom for poisonous snake bites. But, nothing special here.

I do not recommend this place due to the bad animal treatment. Cages are too small for most of animals (Monkeys, Snakes, Birds, Crocodiles...) Some monkeys are attached to a tree all day with a short leash.
