Tra Que Vegetable Village through the lens of French photographer
Located between the ancient town of Hoi An and An Bang beach, the vegetable village of Tra Que has become a popular destination where tourists, particularly foreign visitors, can see the process of growing vegetables and plant vegetables themselves. The following photos were taken by French photographer Réhahn Croquevielle.
Tra Que is a charming little village on the edge of Hoi An, the village is named after the sweet scented vegetables that spice up the everyday meals of the local people.
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.
A tour of the organic vegetable and herb gardens can include some time working in the fields if you like, watering and hoeing vegetable beds, or merely enjoying the peace and tranquility and marvelling at the glorious sunsets.
The village is also a destination for photographers.
According to Rehahn, the best time to take pictures in Tra Que is 5-7.30am and 3.30-6pm.
The village annually helds the Cau Bong Festival on the 7th day of the first lunar month to pray for good weather and bumperharvest.
Rehahn said he wanted to create his own Wikipedia on Vietnam.
