Hon Khoi Sea Salt: A Culinary Treasure
Origin and History
Hon Khoi Salt Fields have a rich heritage dating back to the 18th century. Legend has it that the name “Hon Khoi” originated from a historical event when Chinese pirates roamed the seas. To signal danger, villagers would set fire to mountain peaks, creating smoke signals visible to local mandarins. Thus, the area became known as Hon Khoi. Today, this land continues to thrive, producing nearly 740,000 tons of salt annually.

The Beauty of Salt Making
The artisan salt makers toil under the sun, their hands shaping the essence of Hon Khoi Sea Salt. Covering nearly 400 hectares, these salt fields are a testament to human resilience and hard work. Sea water is carefully pumped into the fields, where it basks in sunlight until evaporation leaves behind pure, crystalline salt. The result? A gourmet salt that’s not only essential for local livelihoods but also a captivating culinary experience for visitors.
