1.2. What does the origin of the name Ganh Dau mean?

There are two main theories about the origin of the name Ganh Dau

Theory 1: Ganh Dau is named after the type of dau rai tree (also known as wind oil tree) that grows abundantly in this area. This plant has yellow oil, which when rubbed on the skin will create a warm feeling. Local people often use otter oil to treat skin and joint diseases and flu.

Theory 2: Ganh Dau is named after an ancient lighthouse built during the French colonial period. This lighthouse uses oil for lighting, helping ships move safely in the area. Therefore, local people call this place Ganh Dau.
