The first sunrays reflection on the the salt pool of Hon Khoi


The best time to visit these salt fields is between January and June, when the climate is summery and temperatures reach up to 40 degrees Celsius, allowing water evaporation and salt exposure. This strenuous task is performed by middle-aged women and takes place between 04:00 and 09:00 AM due to the heavy heat. The working technique is relatively simple. Routing the water from the East China Sea with pipelines to small water ponds in the fields, leaving them there to evaporate for several days. Then the workers arrive and collect the salt that has been exposed into straw baskets, which can hold up to 10 kg, and stack the salt into a huge salt hill.
