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.

Free to visit when you pay to get into the old town. 400 years old part of history but not much to see other than crossing the bridge

Hoi An is a popular tourist stop. The best part of visiting this spot is that it attracts as many tourists as the locals. That makes it very interesting. Families and groups often stop for a photo. Nice surroundings and pleasant walk

This a must-see photo op in Hoi An. The bridge was built around 1590 to connect the Japanese part of the town with the Chinese part and I doubt you'll ever see such an ornate construction over such a short span. Built to last, too.

Part of the Hoi An ticket scheme. Historic bridge connecting over the river. Now has a little temple which your ticket lets you view. Worth visiting and good photo shot.

We went to see the Japanese Covered Bridge at night after a fine dinner at Aubergine. The colored lights on the calm water and the lack of other people made this a soothing end to a busy day. There was no attendant to collect the fee for visiting the little temple at 9PM and it was easy to get lots... More

As appears on the VND20,000 note. This is one of the attractions you'll see as you walk around the old town. It was nice to get under some shade, a side benefit of visiting this site. While many will look at the bridge from the outside, looking from the inside out makes for good framed pictures.

Alot of history behind this famous bridge. Gets abit crowded in the afternoons. Good for some pictures. It looks even better at night with the lighting.
