Upon passing the north of Vam Cong, from Lo Te intersection, visitors go along the No. 80 Highway for about 80 kilometers before reaching a small canal named Bang Lang.

There are various species of storks living at Bang Lang Stork Garden including Cattle Egret, ibis, striated heron, painted stork, etc. Besides, there are other species which do not belong to species of storks making their home at Bang Lang Garden such as black-crowned night heron, little cormorant, greater coucal heron, etc.
The most crowded type of storks is the white cattle egret which takes up 80% the total storks in the garden. This specie of storks often builds their nests at the garden from March to August of lunar year.
The best time to admire the garden is 5 p.m. when flocks of storks fly back to their nests. They hover on the sky then perch on tree peaks, twitter together and pose in the wind. Tourists must not forget to take photos of those moments. There is a three-meter watching tower for tourists to see birds.
The main foods of them are fishes, shellfishes, tiny shrimps, locusts, insects, etc. They often fly away to find food in the early morning and come back in the late afternoon. Storks often go in couples to find foods; sometimes, they go in flock.
Presently, along with the development of Can Tho City, Bang Lang stork garden has more conditions to become an attractive ecological tourist attraction by the side of Hau River.
