“We had high expectations with Hein’s tours and were not disappointed but didn’t expect to be well fed too! Bang Lang stork garden was our first tour with Linh at 1:00 pm on the dot. During the comfortable drive, he provided fun insight into Vietnamese life. Stopped for coffee before arriving outside the park for 3 pm. An easy 20 minute stroll through a very friendly village and once we hit the bamboo forest, storks everywhere! Got a wonderful view of storks from the park’s platform and just 6 tourist there. Very impress with the tour but the icing was the wonderful local meal of sizzling pancakes.” Reviewed by Hera
Then the private car transports you to organic cacao farm to experience how chocolate are made by manual way. Taste the cacao stuffs made from cacao fruits. After that we are heading up to Bang Lang stork sanctuary. Along the way to stork garden, we stop at some destinations for catching up typical images of local daily activities, fruit garden, etc. which will bring you real feeling of local people in Mekong who get used to the agricultural production in this area. Take a short rest about 15 minutes for enjoying Vietnamese coffee at a local coffee shop and have more discussion about the living style and daily activities of locals here.
That is also the good time to visit this bird sanctuary when many kind of stork are coming back to the garden after a day flying and finding food. They gather together on trees with their food to share with their babies stork in the bird net, what a great moment to immerse yourself into natural lives as well as enjoy the peaceful environment there.

Close your day with an unforgettable memory from local daily life to deeply into local natural landscape.
