Hoi An is beautiful. Yes, it’s beautiful not only because of the ancient old quarter but also the countryside around. Only 15 minutes cycling from the city center, you will be surprised by the beauty of an amazing vegetable farm called Tra Que village. The special thing here is that people just use seaweeds to fertilize the herbs, so they are totally organic. Visiting Tra Que village with our bike tours, you will have an easy ride through the beautiful rice fields watching water buffaloes lounging in the mud during the hot days or glassy rivers going around the village. Moreover, you will have a chance to interact with local people when you experience farming work and making some rice paper.
