Ke Ga Lighthouse Mar 27, 2016
The Ke Ga Lighthouse is located on a small island just off a prominent cape (Mũi Kê Gà) about 25 miles SSW from Phan Thiet in Binh Thuan province, Vietnam. The active light signals four white flashes every twenty seconds in a 3+1 pattern. Its 41m (135 feet) octagonal granite tower was renovated in 1975 and supports a gallery and lantern at a focal plane of 65m (213 feet) above sea level. It is the second tallest light in Vietnam.

The Ke Ga Lighthouse can be reached by following route DT 719 south from Phan Thiet along the scenic coast until the tower comes into view. Boat transportation to the island can be negotiated in the fishing village and lighthouse keepers offer tours of the tower. Nice viewpoints of the tower can be found from the north side of the site and from the breakwater in the village on the southern side.

What's the significance of the 3 & 1 pattern every 20s ?
