"Snake Temple-It is said to be the world's first temple with a snake theme. It's very close to the airport and a little bit away from the city. If you are in a hurry, it is not recommended to visit. After all, the attraction is very small, just a temple, and the transportation is inconvenient. At the beginning, the Snake Temple did not provide for snakes, but snakes crawled in from the outside. Over time, snakes became a feature here. Later, in order to carry forward the characteristics of the Snake Temple, the Snake Temple raised many green snakes artificially, and these snakes were supplied by a special snake farm. As soon as you enter the Snake Temple, you can see green snakes hovering on the shelves, large and small, fat and thin, lapped lazily, motionless. You don't need to worry about them at all, because they are almost stationary and look like fake ones. Only by careful observation can you discover their slight movements. To be honest, I was a little nervous, after all, it was the first time I came into contact with a snake so close-the snakes here are not locked in a cage, they are really in the air! For fear of falling! There is a tree behind the Snake Temple. Careful observation reveals that there are many green snakes circling densely on it! The color of snakeskin is very close to that of trees. If you don't look closely, you won't notice it. Once you look closely... there are too many to count. The Snake Temple also has a place for tourists and pythons to take photos. It seems to be 50 MYR per piece. It is a pleasure to see a few foreigners taking photos. There are no taboos in entering the deep temple. Most of the people who go now come here admiring the name "snakes". There are also people who really worship, but they ignore the tourists. Just keep quiet in the snake temple. There are no tickets for the Snake Temple. The tour takes 10 minutes."
