We took a tuktuk tour for 30usd for a whole day. we started in Kep and first stop was salt fields then cave then pepper farm then back to hotel.
salt fields you can see on the way to Cambodia crossing border so you can skip it in case you will take tuk tuk through the beach road later to go to Cambodia.

They bring salty water from sea and wait for couple of days to dry and then collect it. Nice to see the process once in a lifetime.

We stopped at the salt fields on a tour around Kampot and I found it really interesting to see all that goes into producing the salt that we take so easily for granted. Teams of people were draining sections ready to be filled with salt water tomorrow, whilst in other sections, workers were carefully raking the salt that had solidified on the surface into piles. Painstaking work in such hot weather.

I stopped here yesterday and enjoyed taking some photos and watching the ladies hard at work sweeping the salt. Worth a look if in Kep or Kampot!

It would be easy to say 'so wha?t' but the salt fields are a vital local industry providing much neeedt, albeit, casual empoyment when the fields are drying out. A simple Visitor's Centre could benefit from more investment but even to learn about the varieties of salt was interesting.
As always I wonder who paid for the large offices of local federation!

Our resort host gave us this tour for free. He took around Fish Island & talked us through all the salt production bits & pieces. But as mentioned in other posts out of season there really isn’t much to see. We found it an interesting tour of the entire island & well worth the complimentary cost.

Don't even bother coming here during wet season. There is no activity whatsoever except for the "exhibition" which rips you off by asking you for money to watch a 6 minute video about salt and its production...

Our tour visited these fields to learn about the natural harvesting of salt which occurs with the evaporation of water. Different stages of production result in different grades of salt.

The salt fields are certainly an eyeopener into the extremely hard work done by the families who have been harvesting the salt for generations. It is NOT a tourist trap. True, don't visit if you are uninterested in seeing traditional salt harvesting or genuine Cambodians at work. The view across the salt pans interspersed with the storage sheds is quite the "Kodak moment" in the right light. $2 or thereabouts is hardly a grand expense. We found the video and display of equipment immensely interesting and were pleased to be able to support a local enterprise in even a small way.

We saw how the salt is scraped up into piles in the salt pans, then carried in baskets on the end of a pol on the shoulders of the worker. The women work two pans a day- hard hot labour. The salt is then put into a room where it is washed and dried. Very labour intensive with little machinery for a small price.
