Workers carry salt on Hon Khoi salt fields
About 40 kilometers north of Nha Trang City, there are immense salt fields in Hon Khoi, Ninh Hai Commune, Ninh Hoa District where passers-by can see and feel the hardship of local women working on huge salt piles.
From downtown Nha Trang City, tourists just go north along National Highway 1A to Ninh Hoa District where they see a road sign to Doc Let Beach. From the beach, make a right and go straight for about five kilometers to get to Hon Khoi.
At 4 a.m. locals start a new day on the rice fields. They rake the salt and then carry it home. Most workers are women and the harvest of the salt season lasts from January to July.
