Why The Phan Thiet Water Tower is special ?
The Phan Thiet Water Tower was designed by Prince Suphanouvong of Laos, who was the chief engineer of the Nha Trang Public Works Bureau. Work on the water tower began in 1928 and was completed in 1934.
The prince was appointed to work in Vietnam by the government of Indochina, which was under the rule of the French. The prince later became the Head of the State of the Lao Peopleâ€™s Democratic Republic.
The upper part of the tower is an octagonal water reservoir, 5m in height and 9m in diameter. The tower was the main supply of water for the residents in Phan Thiet at that time.
The tower is the symbol of Binh Thuan Province and can be seen in many local emblems and logos.
What to explore at The Phan Thiet Water Tower?
The area around the tower (found at 2 Ba Trieu) is a hub of local activity; in the afternoons, drink vendors lay out blue plastic chairs underneath expansive trees while in the evenings, carnival rides zoom around and punters play games of chance in a carnival-like atmosphere.
