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.

We arrived night time and saw the whole bridge with green lights on. Our tourist guide Tuan explained details of the history of this bridge which was a China & Japan friendship bridge. There is a small temple on top of the bridge too

Beautiful old bridge - beautifully cared for. The pagoda and shrine inside is definitely worth a look and the monkeys and dog sculpture were a hit with the kids. Make sure you get there early as it can get very crowded during the day. Also...More

It's a pretty bridge teeming with tourists. The fact it is so popular shows how overrated Hoi An really is.

Really beautiful and lovely views from the bridge. A little confusing that we were asked to purchase a ticket going across one way and not the other.

Nothing startling or of great interest. In fact it looks better in the dark. You may be asked to pay a fee, depending on your entry to the Old Town.

Its a really beautiful old bridge that you must visit! To take a photo its better to stand at the exact opposite bridge and find the second of not passing hundreds of tourists to click! We didn't pay anything to cross it, don't know why!

A must place to see in the ancient town of Hoi An, 1.5 hours drive from Da Nang in Vietnam. Visit there on a full moon night, to enjoy the beauty of the thousands of lanterns in the evening.

The bridge is a very beautiful construction and fits well into the ancient town of Hoi An. It’s a crowded because it’s probably the most photographed place in Hoi An. There is an entrance fee which is hopefully used to keep the bridge and city...More

This bridge was built in the 16 century. It has small temples in side. It is very easy to take pictures from either end. Worth crossing to the other side.
