ITINERARY BY DAY

TRA QUE HERBAL VILLAGE TOUR BY BIKE

Spend a half-day leisurely cycling through the scenic countryside of Vietnam, the noise of the city a distant memory. After passing through town and along quiet roads, you will come to Tra Que Vegetable Village. About 150 farmers and 400 owners live here and cultivate about 20 types of vegetables and herbs including mint, lettuce, basil, cilantro and broccoli, among others. Situated on almost 100-acres (40-hectares), 8 tons of Tra Que vegetables are sold every year. The vegetable growers do not use pesticides or GMOs, instead they rely on a seaweed that is found in the local river and harvested by boat every morning.

At Tra Que Vegetable Village you will be warmly welcomed by Mr. Minh and his family, a third-generation owner, with a refreshing basil juice. After your welcome drink you can stroll through the village and meet local people who work in the garden. The local farmers will teach you their cultivation methods and how to protect developing vegetables from the insects. You will also join the farmers in gardening activities such as raking the ground, sowing, watering greens, transplanting and tending greens.

After working on the farm you can relax by soaking your feet in a local herbal remedy and utilizing Traditional Chinese Medicine to help reduce your aches and pains.

Your next activity is to prepare lunch with a local family. You will learn how to make Tam huu spring rolls and banh xeo pancakes, which you will then be able to enjoy along with other local Vietnamese delicacies. After lunch you will be able to rest before returning to your hotel.
