    Worth a visit and more
    We took a grap taxi to the vegetable village and enjoyed a walk around. There were plenty of opportunities to join a cookery class, have something to eat or a demonstration on how local farmers grow vegetables. We enjoyed passing some time here on our way to the beach. You could spend a full day if you wished to join in the activities. We saw lots of people got there by bike as it's not far from Hoi An.

    Super farming village
    We visited this village in the Hoi An countryside during our Scooter Tours Vietnam city tour. It's a beautiful place, with little paths through vegetable and fruit fields right next to rivers. You can also meet local farmers who explain their way of working, which is well worth the visit.

    A Fun and Interesting Visit
    We cycled to Tra Que Vegetable Village where we were given a tour of the vegetable gardens, informed about planting and watering and had a go at doing both. Then we took a cooking class to make spring rolls, vegetable pancakes and a marinade for tuna. This was very interactive and great. We sat down to lunch and our efforts at cooking were served to us a part of our meal. Everyone was extremely friendly and we would thoroughly recommend this as an activity while visitng Hoi An.

    Incredible farming experience at Tra Que
    We had an incredible time on our farming experience. Ve collected us from our hotel, providing a bicycle child seat and helmet for our toddler then we did the short cycle up to Tra Que Village. We went on a boat ride and Ve showed us how to make some crafts from banana leaves before making our way over to our water buffalo ride. We then had a refreshing homemade drink, explored the farm (Ve showed us all the amazing herbs and vegetables they grow, letting us sample and smell a variety) before our farming experience in which we prepared the soil and planted some spinach. To top it off, we had an incredible meal including food from the village. It was one of the most delicious meals we have had in Vietnam. Ve and everyone at Tra Que were so friendly, kind and welcoming. We weren’t sure if our toddler would want to do all the activities but she LOVED it and got stuck into everything. We would definitely recommend the experience here, especially for families.

    Interesting vegetable village
    Interesting farm, can see many vegetables and the big gourds was an eye opener. Good restaurants around and I tried the organic cafe and food was delicious and the price is really worth it. But need to give grab driver a good address, may be address of the organic cafe and then from there you can explore by foot, otherwise, the grab driver may drop you at a place much further and you may need help to ask around where to start walking. I saw some taking up cooking class in the restaurants.

Went to visit an "organic" village and have lunch with a cooking lesson in one of the places that offer such experiences in the area. The entire scene looked staged with "farmers" playing a part in a Hollywood movie. I just didn't care for it. Lunch was also quite mediocre.

Places around 4 km away from Hoi An Center it seems to be the real place of Vietnamese tradition, the village which shows how local people live.
In case you want to visit you definitely need a car or at least a bicycle as we did but the road is a little bit dangerous as driver dont seem to care about people walking or riding bicucles also many of them horn all all the time or stop without warning.
Personally is better to visit in a cloudy day which the heat is not so big and not to do any cooking session which for me is a waste of money. Thankfully we didnt as we noticed that is nothing special.

We visited the organic farm and were treated to a local feast. We went with the set menu and the number of dishes left us full and satisfied, plus it was delicious. The family running the farm and restaurant are lovely and they also have cooking classes on site. We would visit again if we’re ever back in Hoi An.

We stopped here for lunch and had a wonderful meal. There was also an very entertaining cooking demonstration and class that was a lot of fun. The local pancakes that were prepared were part of the lunch and very tasty. We were also given the opportunity to walk through the gardens but because it was pouring rain at the time, we didn't take advantage of this. The gardens did look really lush and beautiful nonetheless.

We spent more than a couple of hours exploring this amazing horticultural facility, enjoying a cooking lesson and having lunch. There is much to see and do and to learn. I would highly recommend any visitor in the area to take a tour - with a guide. It's worth the time spent.

I love vegetables and definitely love gardening 😀. My family and I together with our tour guide came here in a sort of drizzly day. Our guide definitely made this trip fun. He pointed out the different plants and its traditional name. We met one of the local farmers. He demonstrated how to toil the soil. I had the chance to use his hoe to dig up the soil, which was hard. We had fun taking pics and videos. The land is given to the farmers to grow their vegetables in the condition that they will grow plants, if they don’t use the land this privilege will be taken away. Seeing so many green leafy plants made me hungry. We also had the chance to enjoy a traditional drink I call “tadpoles”, because it looks like you’re drinking little tadpoles 😂.
If you plan to visit the farm, it’s best you have a guide to show you around.
It’ll be more interesting!

An absolutely wonderful morning and lunch. The guide came to our hotel with bicycles and we cycled to the farm. On the way we stopped to have a ride in a basket boat and the plants along the banks were explained to us. The man rowing also caught a little fish and some shrimps which we held and then put back in the water. Next stop was to see a water buffalo. We had a quick ride and found they are quite tricky to hold on to as their whole body moves from side to side as they walk. Then we went to see a farmer and he showed us how to dig the land, add fertilizer, make holes in soil, then plant lettuces. Next was a lesson in how to grind rice flour and we then made rice pancakes. The next event was surprisingly a neck and foot massage which was very enjoyable. Then it was time for lunch. Shrimp and pork wrapped in mint and coriander, wrapped with spring onion. Next was a pancake containing shrimp and pork served with salad. Next was basa fish in clay pot with rice and morning glory. This was seriously an excellent meal, so fresh and tasty. Our tour guide Tien was amazing all day - so warm and friendly, she really made the day fun. I would recommend this activity day to everyone. I would also recommend just coming for lunch if you do not have time for the activities. They close in the afternoon so no evening meals served.

We had bike rental included with our accommodation, so we worked out a route to cycle by ourselves to the vegetable village. We managed most of it on small roads, and also cycled to An Bang beach. Using Google maps was very helpful, and we adapted this route to avoid the busy roads. We cut across the middle section.
There were 2 adults and 2 children aged 11 and 14 in our group. It was great to explore the area by ourselves - a super adventure
