Vinh Thuc lighthouse is the first of more than 90 lighthouses stretching along an S-shaped strip of land.
Two sides of the road leading to the lighthouse are covered by lush greenery and glorious bushes of wildflowers.
The lighthouses not only illuminate waterways at night, they also represent the maritime sovereignty of Vietnam.
The lighthouse is under the management of the Northeast Maritime Safety Enterprise, an affiliate of the Northern Vietnam Maritime Safety Corporation. Its design follows ancient French architectural style, consisting of two separate blocks in a very harmonious combination.
The lighthouses bring hope and spirit to fishermen and ship drivers, even in the worst weather conditions.
