A 75-year-old Thai grandmother was attacked by a python at night during her sleep. The nightmarish attack was recorded on a CCTV system installed by her son to monitor his elderly mother.

That totally freaks me out.

I was wondering about the stilted houses. What is the purpose, besides keeping them high and dry? I thought perhaps to keep snakes and other pests out perhaps? Or is it just to build a shade cover for living underneath? All of the above?

Something I found really interesting when I visited the silk farm was that the stilts sat in water, to keep the ants out of the building. The ants are a predator of the silk worm. That's pretty cool.

To answer the first part of your query pretty much "all of the above.". Also frequently the kitchen is located there and sometimes the bathroom, although the latter is more a vestige of former times. Also that space is also a nocturnal stable for water buffalos and cattle.
