Eighteen Betel Garden Villages (Vietnamese: 18 Thon Vuon Trau) are located in Hocmon District, 10 km northwest of Ho Chi Minh City, and still retain traditional rustic features. The most popular means of transportation are horse-drawn carriages.
In addition, local people continue to cultivate betel trees and build traditional-style houses. The local people’s love of martial arts, willingness to make sacrifices for the just fatherland and mutual affection set them apart from others.
This country is also famous for the heroic struggle of its people against the French and American invaders.Betel cultivation is the main source of income for the community. In the church, travelers will see a carpet of evergreen betel leaves.
When you stand under the foliage of betel trees, you rarely get wet in the rain because they grow so densely. With a horse-drawn cart, tourists can take a sightseeing tour of the entire community and talk to the locals. They are open and hospitable and always tell you something like the heroism of their ancestors during the two resistance wars.
