Thai An village in Ninh Hai district has recently emerged as a popular tourist destination. It has 540 farming households growing grapes on 180 hectares of land.

Nguyen Thanh Hung, owner of a 1,000-square-meter vineyard, tends his vines carefully and is preparing to give visitors a tour of his vineyard and a taste of his grapes. Hung said: “I have arranged tables, chairs, wine, and grape syrup to welcome visitors. I give them a free tour and keep my grape prices unchanged from normal days.”

50 Thai An households open their vineyards to visitors every day. They are working to improve the quality of their products, such as wine, grape syrup, and dried fruit, which visitors can taste on the spot.
