Address: Tuy Loan ancient Village, Hoa Vang District, Hoa Phong Commune, Da Nang City
About 15km southwest of Da Nang, the Tuy Loan ancient village is located in Hoa Vang District’s Hoa Phong Commune. It boasts beautiful scenery and the unique characteristics of a typical Vietnamese rural village.
Despite its many ups and downs over the past 5 centuries, local residents are proud of the village’s many old houses, its history, its beautiful setting and its many interesting features which include an old banyan tree, a boat station, and a communal house. Villagers also take pride in their My Quang (Quang rice noodles) speciality and their rice paper making.
What to explore:
Soft rice paper is one of the most popular foods at Tet. Although there are many different types of rice paper, Tuy Loan’s is the most famous because of its unique method of production and its amazing flavours of garlic and ginger. It has become very popular with local residents and both domestic and overseas visitors.
In order to make the tasty rice paper, deliciously scented rice from the winter-spring crop is used. Tuy Loan’s rice paper tastes very different from similar products produced elsewhere thanks to its special recipe which includes various spice mixes such as dipping sauce, salt, sugar, garlic and sesame.
Also unlike elsewhere in the country, Tuy Loan’s villagers dry their products on charcoal fires instead of drying them in the sun, which prevents any mould formation.
If you visit this village, you will have an unforgettable experience enjoying delicious My Quang accompanied by Tuy Loan’s rice paper.
