Looks like a common wolf snake, or house snake (Lycodon capucinus). Here another picture. I think they are not dangerous, but be sure to take precautions (I might have guessed wrong from just your photos).

  • $\begingroup$ I'm not sure about that; it seems too blue, and it looks like the rear of the head on this one is wider. $\endgroup$ – Watercleave Dec 5 '17 at 12:08

    $\begingroup$ It's a Lycodon for sure. One of the characters that helps when differentiating from other similar snakes is that the head is quite prominently separated from the neck. Also the nape band is quite common in many, but not all, Lycodon sp. I can't comment on whether it's indeed L. capucinus or another Lycodon species though. $\endgroup$ – Chinmay Kanchi Dec 15 '17 at 13:15
