The Village of Tra Que Hoi An: A Hidden Gem

History and Culture

Tra Que Hoi An is a small village located just 3 kilometers northeast of Hoi An Ancient Town, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The village has a rich history dating back over 400 years when it was first established by the Cham people. It was later inhabited by the Vietnamese who brought with them their farming techniques and traditions. Today, the village is home to around 200 households, most of whom are farmers. 

The name “Tra Que” comes from the Vietnamese word ” Trà Quế” which means the fragrance of vegetables or herbs. This is because the villagers here are known for their skill in cultivating herbs and vegetables without using any machinery. Instead, they rely on traditional methods passed down through generations, making Tra Que Hoi An a unique and authentic farming community.

Hoi An Cooking Classes

Apart from its farming practices, Tra Que Hoi An is also known for its immersive cooking classes. These classes offer a unique experience where you not only learn how to cook authentic Vietnamese dishes but also get to experience the life of a real farmer. The classes take place in a traditional Vietnamese house, and you will be taught by experienced local chefs who will guide you through each step of the cooking process.

The ingredients used in the cooking classes are all sourced from the village itself. You will also get to learn about the different herbs and vegetables used in Vietnamese cuisine and their health benefits. You will get to enjoy the delicious dishes you have prepared, giving you a true taste of Vietnam after the class.
