 Beauty of Hon Khoi salt fields (Khanh Hoa)
Hon Khoi (in Ninh Hai ward, Ninh Hoa town, Khanh Hoa) is considered an attractive tourist destination with pure white salt fields, creating a typical beauty for this coastal area.

The best time to visit Hon Khoi Salt Fields is between the months of December to April. At different times of the day, you can feel the beauty of the salt fields at different angles. Each mound of white salt emerges between the four white spaces which has become a photography inspiration for tourists of romantic souls. You will be surprised because the sunrise is stunning here, salt fields spread in a waving shape, like small mountain peaks covered by white snow from distance. In the afternoon, when the sun sets, the scenery became even more charming.

At a certain time of the day, when salt fields are full of sea water, the salt fields reflected in the golden or pink purple rays like a giant beautiful mirror at stunning dawn. Visitors seem to be unable to distinguish between land and sky. Gentle sunlight at the end of the day ripples on the water, creating a peaceful atmosphere in this bustling modern life.

When salt fields has run out of water and become natural salt "mountains", the sunset offers a different vibe on salt fields. Looking at a low distance, the sun appears hidden among miniature salt "mountains"; sometimes it strongly exposes and sometimes it hides behind those mountains. The whole space is a peaceful and stunning scene helping visitors to enjoy relaxing and deep moments with nature.

First time witnessing the salt making stages, visitors will be amazed with the hardship that the salt makers have to go through to create fine white salt grains. The stronger the sun is, the sooner the salt forms its shape; the burning sunlight is the favor of god for bumper harvests of clear and pure salt grains. Having witnessed the diligence of salt makers who collecting salt into mounds at sunset, you will be more affectionate towards pure and salty "pearls".

Visiting Hon Khoi in the salt season, we also feel the smell of sea salt at dawn and the cold feeling when walking in salt fields with our barefoot. Salt makers who carry "the gift of the sea" on their shoulder with flexible footsteps shine themselves into salt fields. The salt season usually starts in March and ends in September. Visitors are given the opportunity to learn more about salt production process in Ninh Hoa when visiting here. All stages of salt production are conducted manually without machine support, so salt makers have a hard time sticking to this job.

In recent years, tourists have come to visit Hon Khoi salt village. Although tourism facilities are not quite available, there are simple forms of tourism services. Glamorous beaches and experiences with the life of villagers will provide visitors with enjoyment and relaxation.

When visiting Nha Trang - Khanh Hoa, you should not miss a visit to Hon Khoi to feel the fresh air of the sea, the smooth white sand mounds and get immersed in nature. /.
