Ke Ga Lighthouse was built in 1897 and it took one year to complete this work. This is the oldest lighthouse in Southeast Asia. It is also the highest lighthouse in Vietnam (65m) with nearly 200 steps. (Photo: Vietnamnet)
After arriving at the site, visitors will take a boat to the lighthouse (VND50,000/person/round trip). At low tide, a strip of sand connecting the mainland to the Ke Ga cape will appear. Like many other lighthouses, it is used to help captains navigate during the night. The lamp in the tower can illuminate for nearly 40 km. (Photo: Zing News)
To reach the top, visitors will have to go through 183 spiral stairs. There is a fairly large balcony at the top of the lighthouse. (Photo: Zing News)
Besides guiding the way for vessels, Ke Ga lighthouse is also a famous photo-taking place. Many couples also chose this place to take wedding photos because of the wildness and romantic landscape here. (Photo: Dan Tri)
