Fish ponds or salt ponds or something else?






















I took this while descending into Nha Trang. I am not sure exactly what is going on in these ponds, although I am sure they are filled with salt water. Any ideas?

No idea - they are not rice fields just flooded are they?

I love the patterns! Like a patchwork quilt.

How cool. Looks like a close up of green mosaic glass.

The green color has me stumped

How do you know they are filled with salt water if you were in a plane?

Exactly Anon, they do not look full of salt water, but not rice either. Interesting...

I thought they were glass tiles till I read your commentary.

These are most likely "salt fields" ("Ruong Muoi" in Vietnamese.) What is hinting this is the top row where you can see what may be salt residue in the white area. Google "ruong muoi Nha Trang" to find some more info.

They could be some form of aquaculture, prawns etc.
