It's just a small wooden bridge with a long history, somewhat similar in nature to the Japanese Bridge in Hoi An. We were there only for a short while in the afternoon and there was nothing much to see besides the bridge. It's outside of town and if you are not on the way, then you can give it a miss or time to arrive for the morning when the market is bustling and you can see experience the town with the bridge which will be more beneficial.

This is a pretty wooden bridge built by a local woman. Carvings on the pillars are pretty. It’s in use by locals. There were several old people sitting, resting and selling souvenirs on the bridge.
This bridge is located outside of Hue central area so you need to arrange a ride to come here. We asked a tour guide to stop by here in an original tour which didn’t include here. Of course we paid extra.

i visited this bridge few weeks ago when i headed to Hoi An from Hue city.i joined a tour by minivan,the first stop was thanh toan bridge.It was constructed with the help of Mrs. Tran Thi Dao, she donated a large sum to build the bridge. Tran was a childless woman,because of her thirst for having kids, she spent her fortune on building the bridge. but her main purpose is to help the villagers to cross the cannel easily, also to provide the villagers a place to take break,Thanh Toan Bridge is completely different from modern bridges, it was made of wood and the structure is “a bridge under a house”. In 1925, Khai Dinh Emperor ordered the people to build an altar right in the middle of the bridge to worship her.if you are coming to Hue, you can stop here and admire its unique design.

We traveled through the countryside near Hue to visit some of the. Arts and craft villages and our last stop was this wonderfully restored bridge. It is the centre of this village and is used by the villagers for rest and recreation. It is so beautiful and the best thing is that it is not overrun by tourists. Our beautiful guide Fi freely shared the history of the stops on this tours - she was a fascinating companion . We loved it.m

It is a beautiful structure and still in use. Walking through it is like finding yourself in a different time.

This bridge was constructed in 1776 with charitable contributions from Tran Thi Tao who contributed to many other projects too. She built the bridge so villagers could cross the canal that separated their village from Hue. The bridge is made from wood, ceramics and bricks with a tiled roof. The bridge has been restored 4 or 5 times and is slightly narrower than the original. Nowadays there is a market near the bridge that sells produce and a few souvenirs for tourists.

I'm going to try to be as fair as I can. It does not have any kind of construction that you cannot see elsewhere. It is not overly ornate or colourful. It's not particularly long, tall, or wide. I struggled to get excited by it. However, it does seem to be on most Hue tourist tours. Whilst we visited a local lady offered to sign a traditional Vietnamese song which made the visit a bit more unique (made me up the review to VG). Not sure I can really encourage anyone to visit though, it is quite a way out of town.

I don’t know where ‘Traveller O’ was taken to - but the bridge is definitely still there and as beautiful as ever! Sadly many local businesses alongside it seem to have folded - but hopefully they will re emerge once tourism picks up!

The bridge is an ornate Japanese bridge located in the quiet Thuy Thanh village, around 7km east of Hue. We visited this with a tour guide, as part of a group of 12 people touring Vietnam and Cambodia. The bridge leads to the open market on the other side, which is also worth a visit.

Another place to visit while you are here is Thanh Toan Museum.

Having seen this bridge before, took a cab to see it again as the drive there (better by motorbike to enjoy the scenery) is nice in that you see the coastal flats, paddies, and the mountains to the west. However, upon arrival the bridge had been completely removed and the remaining bridge supports. Makes one seriously question the authenticity of the bridge. Very little remained and the surrounding businesses were all boarded up. Apparently, the taxi driver knew it was closed and didn't other sharing that until we arrived. Obviously many people have fallen on hard times with the effects of COVID-19 on tourism, but alittle transparency goes a long way.

Avoid for now, or be sure to ask locals ahead of time if the bridge is even still there.

Waste of time presently. There's nothing old or 18th century-ish about it now.
