There's a place I've to go when I come back to Myanmar.... It's Moe-Yun-Gyi wetlands bird sanctuary. 

It is situated in Bago Division, about 70 miles north of Yangon, by the Yangon-Mandalay highway. It is just two-hours drive from Yangon. In 1878 a water storage reservoir was constructed in Moeyungyi area.


Many years later, the reservoir changed naturally into wetlands with the extent of 40 square miles which have high wetland conservation value. As a result, the wetlands have been notified as a wildlife sanctuary since 1988. 


I'm really interested to see birds at there.. :)

I'd been there when i was in Ygn. My friend recommend me to go and see birds.. But at that time, there're few birds.. Migratory birds can be seen only at November and december, they said.. 


Lovely nature place for sure!
