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.

Not worth buying a ticket to walk over this bridge. The Lonely Planet says you can cross for free if you say you are not visiting the small temple on the bridge but no way would they let us over. Good for pictures and there...More

Like most historical sites, this is a slice of centuries’ old history. It’s all part of the Ancient City in Hoi An.

Featured on one of the Vietnamese bank notes, it’s an iconic landmark. Inside it’s guarded by dogs in hats, a small temple in the centre, it’s just lovely. Beautifully lit by night. Just at the end of Old town by the bridge to lantern/night market

It is worth seeing if you are in the area during the night. It is all lit up at night and very striking. But not worth driving 50km out of your way. Really part of the overall experience.

Nice, but no big deal. Costs one of the 5 entrances included in the Old City ticket. On the other side of the bridge there’s not much to see.

If you walk around in the centre of the city for long, you won't miss running into the Japanese Covered Bridge. It is quite an interesting site and connects the two sides of the river with streams of tourists pouring through it every day. The...More
