New Chinese lighthouse

A forum to discuss lighthouses in Canada, Australia, Europe and Asia.

I found this log with a photo of a recently built lighthouse on the Hainan islands in China. I could not find any additional info on the net. The short Dutch text at the photo says the elevation of the light is 80 meters and the visibility 22 NM. The tower is open to the public. Regarding the architecture it indeed looks like a very modern structure.

Two articles in English were found by Jo Reynen. The first one shows us not only lighthouse information, but also the endless possibilities of online translation machines. Tourists appear to have very special responsabilities.

More info about this tower here: http://www.oeeee.com/a/20090921/781425.html

Since that text may be a bit hard to read for most of us: translation machines may give funny language, but at least we can understand what the text means http://www.oeeee.com/a/20090921/781425.html

Awesome lighthouse! I love the look of modern lighthouses. :)

Thanks Jo, I'm not very lucky in my copy-paste-activities lately :oops:
