Experience the organic fields near Hoi An, and discover the farming secrets which produces the highest quality vegetables and herbs by the local Vietnamese farmers. The soil here is rich, and farmers use the algae from the lagoon in Tra Que as fertilizer, which is the only source of this precious algae. The fields are perfectly laid out, well maintained and lovely. We witnessed the manual watering of plants by use of a yoke with two watering cans balanced on the farmer's shoulders, while tipping from side-to-side to empty the contents and distribute the water. Members of our tour attempted this chore, but found it too difficult to lift and balance the watering cans. We participated in a cooking demonstration, followed by feasting on our delicious endeavors at a restaurant near the edge of the fields. A very memorable and enjoyable experience!

We visited the herb village and started our experience with a great foot massage. This was followed by cooking classes where we made Tam Huu (spring rolls) as well as a local pancake. Then we had to cook them dressed in aprons and hats with the flaming woks providing background colour. Lunch was delicious. Worthwhile activity

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.

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.

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

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.

This is definitely worth a few hours. Just 15 minutes bike ride from the old town, the garden island is a wonderful trip. If you are lucky you will see some water buffalo. Ride back on the paths through the dice paddy’s.

We took our 4 year old son to do the farmer experience, to get a sense of what life is like for local people. It was really fantastic- the buffalo ride, planting vegetables, and the lunch was delicious. Our guide Lena was delightful. It’s a very picturesque, relaxing experience, highly recommend
