Tra Que Vegetable Village half day is a little traditional one located in Cam Ha Commune, Hoi An City, Central Vietnam. The village has existed for at least 500 years and grows several vegetables and herbs among which savoury, an aromatic herb, is its most famous product. Known as “rau hung” in Vietnamese,and similar to basil and mint, its leaves are widely used in Vietnamese cooking. In the village, the vegetable growers are called ‘artisans’ and not ‘farmers’ because the entire farming process, from tilling the land, digging furrows, and planting seedlings, is done artistically.
