   Tra Que is a small village located 2 km north-east of Hoi An Ancient Town.  The village has existed for at least 300 years.  It is located between Tra Que algae pond and the De Vong River, with special conditions producing rich soil, and ideal for growing fresh herbs.

 Tra Que is not just a brand name for the village’s fragrant and high quality herbs, but it is also an attractive destination for tourists staying in Hoi An.  The village is named after the sweet scented herbs that are used in the everyday meals of Hoi An people, such as mint, coriander and basil.  A tour of the organic vegetable and herb gardens can include some time working in the fields if you like (wearing local farmer's clothes!), watering and hoeing vegetable beds, or merely enjoying the peace and tranquility and marvelling at the glorious sunsets.

 Located in the heart of the famous herb village, Tra Que restaurant is a rustic-designed, restored, traditional Vietnamese building.  Here you can enjoy the beautiful surroundings while you watch the farmers at work tending their produce.
