Sedge harvest in Tam Quan

Vietnam has many villages across the country growing sedge, a kind of grass, in order to weave it into sedge mat. Vietnamese people, especially in the countryside, prefer sedge mat over modern mattress because of the airy feeling it offers.

Tam Quan in Binh Dinh Province is that kind of village. People can see the beauty of green sedge field alongside the National Road, especially in harvest season.

Farmers wake up very early in the morning for their work in the field, and try to finish when sun rises.
