Quang Nam (VNA) - Tra Que Vegetable Village is a “must-see” for visitors to the ancient town of Hoi An in the Central province of Quang Nam.

Located about 3km from the centre of Hoi An, Tra Que Village is well-known as the freshest and cleanest herb and vegetable supplier in Hoi An.

The village has some 40ha of fertile land, sustaining more than 41 different kinds of vegetables.

Established 300 years ago and surrounded by the De Vong River, the first citizens of Tra Que made a living by fishing. Gradually, they started taking advantage of the river’s abundant seaweed to make fertilizer. Tra Que now supplies all Hoi An restaurants and households with the finest quality herbs and vegetables. Hoi An is considered the food mecca of Vietnam and Tra Que Village is the main contributor to this status.

This village is not only beautiful to look at; its real treasure lies in the quality of its soil. No chemicals are used in the plant-growing process. Also, it’s situated on top of a rice field, which adds to the richness of the soil. This guarantees you the best quality and the healthiest vegetables.

From Da Nang , it takes a visitor about one hour to travel to Tra Que Village by motorbike.-VNA
