Ngọn hải đăng Vũng Tàu, Vung Tau

(4.1/5 based on 75+ reviews on the web)
Marvel the sights from the architecturally and historically valued Ngọn hải đăng Vũng Tàu. Built in 1907, and moved and rebuilt in 1911, the lighthouse shines light to the ships and boats as far as 35 sea-miles (64.75km) away, as well as monitoring and guiding vessels at sea with telescopes and other nautical equipment. See the four old French cannons weighting several tons, once used to protect the area from naval attacks. Observe the panoramic view of the whole of Vung Tau. A spiral staircase leads to the balcony on the top, which serves as a sight-seeing point. By using our Vung Tau vacation trip planner, you can arrange your visit to Ngọn hải đăng Vũng Tàu and other attractions in Vung Tau.

  • I spent 3 full days in Vung Tau, travelling around on a rented push bike.....a great way to see this coastal city. One place I visited was the Light House. A pleasant cycle to the top with great views...  more »
  • The Lighthouse is located on the hill next to the statue of Christ, but there can be reached by car, not stepping foot in the mountain. Upstairs there are a couple of cafes offering dinner with sunset views. A great place to meet and watch the sunset as the city lights are lit. Romantic:)

  • I have been there at sunrise and sunset and it was amazing at any time. You can go there walking but if a quiet long way, better with a motorbike if you got one.

  • Beautiful view of Vung Tau city. We took lots of nice photos here.
  • It's a bit hard to find the way up. You will need to rent a motorcycle as the road is hard to tackle on foot. The view, however, is really worth it. You can have the panoramic view of Vung Tau Beach and the city.
  • Nice view from the Lighthouse. Be careful if you are driving car since the street is not very wide at the top
  • The location offer a very good view to observe Vung Tau city from high point.
