Ngoc Lang is known as a peaceful village with vegetable fields that are as green as jade stones.
The village is compared to a child protected and nurtured by two mothers that are the Chua and Ba rivers. Silt of the two rivers has raised the level of its land. This has allowed Ngoc Lang to become the village providing the largest amount of vegetables in Phu Yen Province. With fertile land and knowledgeable villagers, the vegetables of Ngoc Lang village are also sold throughout Vietnam.
Locals grow vegetables year round except in September and October due to the rain season.
At only 4am, when the whole city is not yet awake, locals head to the fields to care for their vegetables. Some growers harvest vegetables and some work on land.
The flood at the end of 2009 destroyed all vegetable fields. However, one year later, the vegetable fields have once again grown thanks to all effort of hard-working growers.
Lying near National Road 1A and the North-South railway, through windows, passengers can have a chance to enjoy vast vegetable fields on which growers with white conical hats are working.
It is a serene sight that makes passengers forget about the long journey and reflect on the beauty of the village and its villagers.
It’s difficult to see boundary of vast green vegetable fields. From a far distance, there is Nhan Tower, which is a tourism site of Phu Yen Province
Growers here often have breakfast at the field because they have to wake up very early to work
