A local favorite, construction on this covered bridge began in the Year of the Monkey (1593) and was finished in the Year of the Dog (1595), hence the monkey and dog sculptures at either end.

Prettier from the outside then interior however you should definitely still cross the bridge as the interior is still impressive. There is an ancient house on the other side of the bridge too which you should visit.

This is a fantastic entrance to the old city, instantly transporting you back to ancient times. There is no better way to enter this world heritage site than through this wonderful old bridge!

What a lovely bridge and lovely area of Vietnam! Worth a trip especially at dusk when lanterns are lit and the candles float! Very beautiful. It can get crazy busy so try go while still light and wait for sun set.

Nice point of interest in Hoi An. Very comforting with its style and old wood and like a portal into the charming delightful old town from the outside world

Went there because I was really excited about historical places but found that the bridge was not so amazing. It was managed poorly and I think that the bridge could be broken in a couple of years.
