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.

Dare I say it, it is just a bridge. Nicely carved and interesting statues either end and a good view over the river. We managed not to use one of our tickets but there is a ticket booth half way through.

The best view is from the outside of the bridge. Inside has some cool pictures from the early 1900's and a place to pray. Otherwise it's a very small attraction.

Do not buy a ticket, just ignore them. Bridge is nice, just walked over it and took some pictures. Definitely pass by while being in hoi an but don't make a day trip for this.
