With an area of 1.3 ha, The Bang Lang Stork Sanctuary is home 150,000 storks (11 kinds of them including fly stork, egret, heron, pelican, woodpecker, etc). It’s about a 45-kilometer drive from Can Tho City to reach the Sanctuary.
From the gate, visitors in Vietnam travel would walk over two bamboo bridges leading to the sanctuary, then climb up to the stairs to a balcony where they can behold the stork. Some experienced after have seen the sea of storks covering fully the garden that they were in a cotton yard during a blooming season or they were watching a snow-filled expanse in Europe when snow falls.
Bang Lang Stork Sanctuary- The Home of Thousands of Storks
Today, this place is a popular stop of international and domestic tourists in Vietnam travel coming to view thousands of storks. More than ten species of storks are residing here. Visitors can see these birds returning home in late afternoon after the whole day seeking food from other places. There is a tall wooden viewing platform to view the birds. The scenery of thousands of storks flying around and gathering in the Garden is really exotic to visitors.
