Top ways to experience Guindy Snake Park
The area
Neighbourhood: Adyar
One of the costliest quaint neighbourhoods of Chennai is Adyar, that gets its name from the Adyar river that flows nearby. It has rich historical and cultural roots and is sprinkled with some of city’s oldest residential houses. Home to the IIT campus and with the Guindy National Park close by, it is considered to be one of the hottest spots in the city with the best of eateries, an easy access to the beach and a shopping hub. It’s worth taking a walk in the quiet bylanes to sample traditional south Indian dishes at well-known local family-run establishments especially the rural food from Tamily Nadu, Andhra Pradesh and Karnataka. A visit to the Padmanabhaswamy Temple keeps the flavor of the temple town intact.

Exciting for children
Dec 2020 • Family
This place is a must go place if you are visiting chennai with little children. They would enjoy the snakes as well as other reptiles. Seeing various snakes from close proximity would definitely make their mind curious. Also the entry ticket is very reasonable with a nominal fee for camera. The place is maintained well too.
Overall a good place to spend time with family. Recommended.

Fantastic exhibits
Mar 2020 • Solo
A great place to see and learn about snakes, crocodiles, lizards and amphibians.
Lots of love exhibits and you're able to get really up close and personal.
No different charge for foreigners (makes a change) 100rs for adults plus there is a small charge (30rs) for using a mobile phone. A really fun and inexpensive way for spending an hour or two

The place is a good outing for kids especially as they can see some crocodiles, snakes and other animals. The cleanliness of the place can be improved . Nevertheless a very informative place to say the least

Snaksess
Nov 2019 • Solo
The Snake Park is next door to the Children's Park but run by a different organisation that looks after its animals. Snakes are serious stuff here with a million snake bites and maybe 20,000 deaths a year. On a weekday morning there were lots of school groups. The exhibits are mostly well designed so you can see the animals clearly. My favourite is the chameleon at the end of the trail, which was catching insects.

Good place needs better maintainence

Typical snake park with smell. You have a wide choice of things to see and kids will have a once in a while experience. If you ask me most of the city dwellers wont even recognize most of the snakes out there. Cleaner glasses could be of great experience.

Not a lot of variety of snakes
Aug 2019
I expected to see a lot of variety of snakes but I was somewhat left disappointed after the visit. I would definitely have liked to see some snake display with some shows but nothing of that sort was available
