    Tra Que vegetable village tours open

    Hoi An ancient town in central Quang Nam province has officially begun ecological tours to the famed Tra Que vegetable village in Cam Ha commune, which possesses the most abundant and varied vegetables in the area.

    Costing VND35,000 ($1.35) per person, the tours allow visitors to learn about the lives of local farmers and the vegetable growing process in the village, and they can also be involved in planting crops. Nearby relic sites are also within reach, as are the area’s many delicacies.

    Noting the success of pilot tours to the village conducted by several travel companies, Hoi An’s tourism authorities approved a project on community-based tourism development in Tra Que. The new tour is part of this project and aims to provide a new and interesting destination for visitors to explore peaceful and hospitable Hoi An.
