 What better way to get an insight into the local way of life? Experience the daily life of farmers in the real Viet Nam village. 

Tourists easily meet a peaceful oasis where many kinds of herbs gather together and where farmers work the land by hand without any modern support machines or just a simple view – lazy water buffaloes lounging in the mud.

Tra Que village has an area of ​​40 hectares with more than 41 kinds of vegetables

Located 3 km away from the center of Hoi An and less than 20km from Danang City. Tra Que – traditional herbs village in Cam Ha, Hoi An town, Quang Nam province is well-known as the only freshest and cleanest vegetable without toxic and chemical supporters for Hoi An local foods. The village has 220 agricultural households, of which 130 are growing vegetables on an area of ​​40 hectares with more than 41 kinds of vegetables, especially many famous kinds of vegetables such as basil,coriander, chives … Once mixing vegetables together will create a mixture of full 5 unique flavors: spicy, sour, sweet, bitter and acrid. Vietnam has many craft, vegetable villages but it’s no hope to find a unique vegetable village like Tra Que Village.
