This is an interesting way of discovering Hoi An traditional values – a tour called “one day in the life of an old town resident”. It is a delightful and very affordable way to spend the day and learn about the food and culture of the area. The guests don palm-leaf conical hats, go to the fields to hoe land, plant vegetable, water crops and accomplish various other duties. After fulfilling their job, they go to a small kiosk near the field to taste Vietnamese cuisine made of Tra Que vegetable and other specialties. “It was a truly unique experience learning about soil management, crop rotation, fertilizing and the management of pests. The variety of herbs and vegetables was amazing.”
 

Tra Que Vegetable Village

Tra Que Vegetable Village is 3km far from Hoi An old town on the direction of northeast. This land was formed 300 year ago, surrounded by De Vong River and Tra Que Lagoon, so it has very good atmosphere with fresh air...

From the village of Tra Que, vegetables of many kinds have been provided for restaurants, hotels, Hoi An's people as well as for other localities in Quang Nam Province and Da Nang City. Many kinds of organic and sweet smelling herbs have been planting in this area for ages. 

Tra Que raw vegetables have been added up to make aromatic flavour to specialties of this village such as Tam Huu, Banh Xeo, Quang Noodle, vegetable cooked with garlic and so on.

Specially, the vegetable village has seveval herbs containing medicine that is good for health and made up orental medicines (also called Vietnamese Traditional Medicines).

Coming to Tra Que Vegetable Village, you will perceive cultural cachet of the traditional village. You will see the landscape of the green, clean and picturesque vegetable village with your own eyes. Together with the local farmers, you can exchange, investigate the techniques of cultivation, care and harvest of vegetable.

Your feet will be looked after by traditional madical methods (your feet are soaked in a basin with boiled water cooked with some kinds of medicinal herbs gathered from gardens). 

Combining with foot massage, your feet will be treated for tiredness after having spent time travelling for a long time.

We believe that after the tour tour Tra Que Vegetable Village, you will feel buoyant and cheery and enjoy the real life of the local people of this place.
