Herb Village and Cam Thanh Village Farming Experience

Pick up from Hoi An

Tour Code: DAD-05 Duration: Approx 5 Hours

Explore the quaint and rural farming village of Cam Thanh and experience the life of a farmer!

Highlights:

  • Surround Yourself with the Stunning Landscape of Tra Que herb Village.
  • Become a Farmer for one day at the once Fierce Battlefield: Cam Thanh Village and see how much the Village has changed
  • Enjoy the Scenic Countryside of Hoi An by Cycling Down the Peaceful Paths

Tour Description:

Warm up with an easy bicycle trip to Tra Que village - a well -known herb village that is about 3-kilometres from the northeast of Hoi An. The village is named after sweet-scented herbs. It is said that long ago, a king visited the village and tasted its food. There was this one specific herb that attracted his attention: it had the sweet aroma of a camelia (tra) yet also obtained the spiciness of cinnamon (que). Inspired by the taste, the king decided to name the village Tra Que.

Extending rice fields, laid out herb gardens, glassy lakes and lazy buffalos lounging in the mud are one of the few beautiful strokes of Hoi An’s peaceful countryside picture. Also, listen to the story behind Tra Que’s herbs: no chemical fertilizer is used during the farming procedure. The villagers only use seaweed from De Vong lake for their vegetable manure. Therefore, Tra Que’s herbs and veggies are widely recognized for its safety, unique flavour and taste. 

Next, get back on the road and head to Cam Thanh village, once a shelter for the soldiers and a fiery battlefield during the war. Today, however, it is a  peaceful village surrounded by water coconut trees with friendly and welcoming villagers. Transform into a local at Cam Thanh and experience the life of a farmer. Learn all about the work on a rice field: raking the ground, sowing and watering the rice plants or harvesting it if it is that time of the year. Remember, you will not be a true farmer unless you try riding a water buffalo, an almost signature activity of people living in the countryside! 

After some work on the fields, help the locals to grind and cook the rice using traditional methods, no rice cooker involved. And then, sit down and enjoy your meal with locals, or fellow-farmers-for-a-day. You will realize how much hard work is put into a single grain of rice. The meal also wraps up the activities for the day, as you will be getting back on the bike and cycle back to the city.
