The beauty of Ke Ga lighthouse at dusk - (15/06/2020)

( About 40km from the centre of Phan Thiet city to the Southwest, Ke Ga lighthouse (Tan Thanh commune, Ham Thuan Nam district, Binh Thuan province) is a must-visit place when traveling to Phan Thiet for both backpackers and tourists everywhere. What makes Ke Ga lighthouse so special? Ke Ga Lighthouse is not only the oldest lighthouse in Southeast Asia (over 120 years old), but also the tallest one in the region with a height of over 40m. If you are a travel lover, a trip which is on the motorbike or any other means will make you will feel extremely adventurous with sunny and windy roads. One side is the sea and the other side is sand dunes, mountains with endless green dragon fruit gardens.
