Snake farm “Moringa”: a fascinating show and vodka with the heart of a snake
Many tour operators offer a tour of the snake farm in Nyachang, or rather, 12 kilometers from the city. It’s nice that the tour is free. And each guide will seduce you, almost like an aspid, saying that there visitors will see the only one in Nha Trang and a unique show with the caster of tailed amphibians. And they do not lie.
On the way to the farm
The tour will be very interesting for tourists who are just beginning their acquaintance with Vietnam, or rather, with its tourist center – Nyachangom. And all because, before you get to the snake farm, you have to drive through the whole city. From the windows of the bus you will taste all the authenticity of the non-tourist city, which opens on the streets beyond the third coastline. And this in itself is interesting – to learn that Nha Trang is not only rich in entertainment places, but also in poor neighborhoods.
If you take this excursion from “ANEX TOUR” or “PEGAS TOURISTIC”, before coming to the snake farm, you will most likely be taken to several more places – for coffee tasting, for jewelry salon, for latex factory. And the goods there, according to guides, are sold, of course, at wholesale prices. Although this fact is very doubtful.
Snake show with real poison
When you get to the snake farm, first the guides will show a small zoo, which is in the hall of the building. In terrariums there live snakes, iguanas, lizards. Separately, we can say about the palm marten, who also lives in the territory of the “Moringa”. It is this little animal in its stomach that ferments coffee beans, turning it into the first-class and most expensive coffee in the world – luwak.
And after that the tour group is already waiting for a performance with snakes. The guide leads everyone to the hall, where the seats are arranged in a circle, and in the center there is a round corral-stage, where the snake tamer with his wards acts. The spectacle is very interesting!
For example, when the snake master puts a couple of tailed ones in his pants or when the snake starts to spit with poison (the reptilian glands are not neutralized – that is, they actually give off saliva). Indifferent will not leave even the moment when the master throws a serpent into the spectators. And then it turns out that this is a rope. Nha Trang Snake Farm is already worth a visit. But on this tour does not end.
Moringa as a pharmaceutical company
After the extreme show, when everyone is impressed by the performance, the tour guides invite to the conference room to listen to the presentation about the pharmaceutical company Moringa Nyachan and the remedies that it offers – various homeopathic preparations, noni juice concentrate, Moringa powder and the like. Here you can buy all these funds. In the shop after the lecture will definitely lead. And here, too, must be solved, discarding emotions, and whether you need a concentrate of mushrooms and other …
Rice vodka with a heart of snakes
At the end of the stay at the snake farm “Moringa” guests can stay on one more view – at your will for $ 100 (you can throw yourself off the company) right after you kill the cobra. Her head will be cut off, and then her heart will be pulled. And the staff will necessarily put it in a transparent glass, so that everyone can see how long it still beats. After that, a glass of rice vodka will be poured into the glass and they will offer you a drink. Also, the snake will cook soup in front of the gourmets.
As a rule, guides of tour operators do not stay on this action and leave with the group. Therefore, if you want to taste the heart of a snake, you should think about a taxi that will take you to the hotel back.
