    What to Expect
    08.00    Your guide and car will meet  you at your hotel for your drive through the beautiful countryside villages and towns on our way to the ancient relics of My Son. Photo opportunities abound.

    09.00     We arrive to the  haunting sound  of Cham  music and  stop  to take  in the  vibrantly dressed dancers enjoying a traditional dance performance.

    09.30    Your walking tour begins with a short ascent  up to the Cham ruins walking along a track bordered by jungle. As we reach the top,  the ancient  ruins appear.  While you explore the area your guide will explain the history of the religious site which served as a burial site for the Cham monarchs  many centuries ago.

    10.30   Time to return to our car to continue  our journey of discovery. We take a ride through the countryside and paddies on our way to Tra Que Village.

    12.00      We arrive at  Tra Que  Village. The village is famous  for its fresh  local herbs  and vegetables, and is named  after the sweet smelling herb that  is used to flavor many local Hoi An dishes.  The farmers  in the  village use no fertilizers in their soil, using instead,  an algae found only in a lagoon  adjacent  to the village. It produces  abundant and delicious herbs and vegetables. Among  many others,  the  herbs  are used  to flavor Banh Xeo, Cao Lau and  My Quang,  all local dishes. Local people insist on these  herbs for the very best quality dish.

    Your local village hosts will provide you with a cooking demonstration and show you some of the local specialties including how to make rice paper, banh xeo and tam huu local spring roll. Then it’s time to roll up your sleeves and try your hand at preparing  your own Hoi An 3 course specialty lunch. Sit back and enjoy your culinary creations  at the family table overlooking the locals tending  the land.

    13.30    Before we set off on our tour of the village, it’s time to relax and enjoy a traditional foot massage  in the fragrant  garden.

    14.00     Your village hosts  will take  you on a tour  of the  village. Explore the  nurseries  and herb gardens  abundant with bird’s eye chili, lemongrass,  basil, coriander and spring onions all thriving in the rich soil. Learn about  the unique  algae and its nourishing  impact on the soil. Jump right in and see how the plots are planted,  tended and watered with the guidance  of local family farmers. 

    14.45    Your car will return you to your hotel.
