There's a ticket booth just after the rice fields end as you go out of town on Hai Ba Trung, on the right hand side.
It is rarely manned and if it is you can cycle straight past without raising an eyebrow. We just wandered in for a look around.
The best time for a visit is after 14:00 when all the tour groups have left and the farmers come out to tend their allotments. Lots of conical hats and old farming techniques make this an excellent stop for photos especially as the sun sets over the river.
