From the quite peaceful walk to the bustling to village life once the morning sets in, you can enjoy it all. A big attraction to Tra Que Vegetable Village is the cooking classes that are held here. Their corn pancakes bring locals and tourists alike from all over Vietnam. You can do hands on cooking class or just enjoy the tasty delicacies. Another very good thing about this place is that the roads are quite empty and you can enjoy a nice bicycle ride with your loved ones. Though there is a bus service available for the tourists, it is recommended that you take a bicycle and move around at your own pace, to enjoy the most.
