Hon Khoi Salt Fields near Nha Trang
Hon Khoi Salt Fields are located 52 km by road to the north of Nha Trang City near to Doc Let Beach.
Doc Let Beach
Many visitors prefer Doc Let Beach over the beaches in Nha Trang because they are less busy, and visit to the Hon Khoi Salt Fields whilst staying near Doc Let Beach.
Hon Khoi Salt Fields is a large area on the coast line where salt is harvested using fields separated by low levees which are filled with sea water. This is a large scale labour intensive operation. Although the process involves using the intense sunshine of the hot season from January to June (which is the best time to visit) to evaporate the sea water leaving salt behind, the task of collecting the salt from the fields is a manual task. Hundreds of workers, mostly women, toil away in the fields every day collecting the salt in baskets suspended on a pole on their shoulders, one basket each side.
Early Morning Starts
This is hard work and its generally done between the hours of 04:00 and 09:00 each day before the sun gets too strong. The salt which is taken from the fields in deposited by the workers in huge piles at collection point waiting to be taken to a factory for processing.
Visiting the Salt Fields
There are no restrictions on visiting this area early in the morning to watch the work taking place, which is a fascinating sight and one which people from more economically developed countries will find unusual.
To visit you need your own transport and to bring everything you might need, especially water, as there are absolutely no facilities for tourists at the Hon Khoi Salt Fields. Aim to visit at sunrise as the colours of the landscape are at their most vivid at this time.
