Long Description:
[FR] Les jumelles sont placées dans le square Koh-Chang, situé le long du boulevard Clemenceau. De nombreuses places de stationnement permettent aisément d'y faire un arrêt.
La vue est splendide : de gauche à droite, on a une vue sur l'archipel des 7 îles, la plage de Trestrignel et la pointe du Château. Ce square est baptisé ainsi en souvenir d'une bataille navale remportée par la France en Indochine le 17 janvier 1941.
Cette bataille qui opposa la France du gouvernement de Vichy et la Thaïlande est méconnue. Elle constitue la seule victoire navale française durant les deux derniers conflits mondiaux.

[ENG] The coin-op binoculars are placed in the Koh-Chang public garden, located along the Clemenceau boulevard. Many parking bays easily make it possible to make a stop there.
This public garden is baptized thus in remembering a naval battle won by France in Indo-China on January 17, 1941.
This battle which opposed France of the Vichy government and Thailand is ignored. It constitutes the only French naval victory during the last two world wars.
