Activities at Tra Que Village
1. Be a farmer
You are fascinated by watching the farming procedures of local farmers, including: raking the ground, sowing, watering, picking vegetables and many other activities which are rarely seen in modern daily life. You can join one of the local farmers and get a feel of what it is like to work the land. Get your hands muddy and the photo opportunities are endless. As well you will listen to people talking about organic farming techniques and try their hand at actual farming.
2. Make rice paper
Have eaten fresh Vietnamese spring rolls? Rice paper is what it used to wrap the rolls. If you are interested in the process of rice paper making – rice grinding, boiling, stretching and drying – then there is a workshop just for you.
3. Eat Pho (Vietnamese Beef Noodle Soup)
On the way back to town, you will enjoy Pho- Hoi An version. Pho Hoi An is a different version with Pho Hanoi. The chewy noodles are dried from the fresh ones, then it is dipped in hot water. The hot broth is made by simmering beef bones and oxtails and ground peanut is added to enhance the flavor as well as richness. Pho Hoi An is very appealing because Pho is very light-tasting, you can see everything in the bowl
