Why Tra Que Vegetable Village is special ?
Tra Que Vegetable Village was formed 300 years 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 Danang City.
What to explore at Tra Que Vegetable Village?
Tourists visitting Tra Que Village are often fascinated by watching the farming procedures of local farmers, including: raking the ground, sowing, watering, picking vegetables and many other activities which are rarely seen in modern daily life. Moreover, tourists can listen to people talking about organic farming techniques and try their hand at actual farming. The farmers don’t use chemical or fertilisers but a kind of algae found only in a lagoon in Tra Que. Thanks to this technique, Tra Que herbs and veggies are widely recognized for their quality, safety and especially outstanding taste and flavour.
The beautifully laid out gardens with mixed beds of vegetables and tiny flowers are also attractive enough for a bicycle tour around, prior to lunch at local friendly families with wonderful food of Hoi An such as: cao lau, Quang noddles, banh xeo, etc and some kinds of drinks extracted from local herbs.
Taking some cooking lessons provided by tourism companies isn’t a bad idea either. Just imagine that you can cook a Vietnamese food by yourselves and learn how food is grown in Vietnam: what an experience.

A great way to experience village life: shopping at the market, observing organic veg farming, making your own rice paper rolls. Cooking class is new & we loved making Viet food. Highly recommended!
This is a good way to get an understanding of food production in Vietnam. The food is grown for the community not for individual families. This is a very fertile area and the vegetables are bedded in seaweed harvested nearby. The people working the fields are normally happy to stop and show you what they are doing. Tra Que village is just a 15 minute cycle ride out of Hoi An or 5 minutes in a vehicle.
Excellent way to spend a morning - beautiful beds of vegetables that are so well tended that Martha Stewart would be envious.
Lovely cooking class. Lily's English was excellent, her conversation friendly and humorous, and most of all, her cooking was really good! She taught us well and made us eat like royalty. Post-class, we toured around on bicycles and we made a detour here and there because we forgot something, and she was super accommodating and patient (she could have done a Lance Armstrong and ride away or take shots somewhere ha). Definitely look out for Lily at Tra Que!
There has been a vegetable garden on this site for 500 hundred years and it is still totally organic. They use seaweed to fertilise. It is beautifully tended in the neatest rows I've ever seen. Puts English kitchen gardens to shame! We met one of the ladies that lives and works here with her sweet little baby and although we couldn't communicate in language we did lots of pointing and laughing and she allowed me to take photographs. They plant flowers in rows between all the vegetables and herbs so even if your'e not a gardening freak it is an extremely beautiful place to wander around.
