Know More about this tour

This tour takes you out to the infamous Le Mat snake village, where you can experience the traditional village and sample their most famous specialty: snake meat!

Snake Village gives you the chance to see or even hold some snakes and see them in the farm, before enjoying a feast of local snake delicacies!

The most popular snakes served in these restaurants are grass snakes and cobras (the cobra is ten times more expensive than grass snakes, of course), and they are all alive.

You will have chance to see how the chosen snake is prepared. Its heart and gall are poured into glasses of wine to drink. Other parts of the snake are cooked in different ways to make around ten dishes, for instance: grilled, fried, wrapped in leaves, rice soup, etc Besides, snake alcohol is quite popular because it is believed to make ones healthier. Not many people think snakes are nice, but snake dishes are actually not so bad.
