My friend took me there to give me a birthday surprise . Very lovely scenery during the night. But we cannot come in to the lighthouse. We only paid parking, 30.000 dong , if i’m not mistaken.

A little stall at the top sells simple refreshments but is not always open. The constant birdsong is recorded, apparently to attract real birds, of which there are more lower down the hillside. The lighthouse works but isn't open to visitors so all you can...More

Hire a Moto and you can ride yourself right to the top. Not top much up here but nice view for some photos.

The way to lighthouse is amazing with red flamboyant and trees. The lighthouse cannot be entered and is ordinary. But the view is worth a visit as we could see the whole city and some tourist destinations from there.

In the guide book it says it's military land and when we asked the locals they said no you can't so you have to walk on the main road to the lighthouse which is the long way round, which is what we ended up doing.
