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.

Cute bridge, but nothing really special. Although I don't know the history behind the bridge, it feels like a themapark..

From far, it's an old bridge, built in the 1590s by the Japanese. But this little bridge is highly emblematic of Hoi An. Most tourists would take a picture with this bridge if visiting Hoi An, and indeed, we saw a lot of people around...More

The bridge is nicely decorated and quite ancient. It is nice to walk through but no more than 5 minutes are needed to fully experience this site.

We used the tickets from our "passport" for the town to visit. A great location for tracking photos.

Nothing to write home about but it is the climax of the ancient town visit. Historically the border between the Japanese and Chinese area

This is a must see if you are visiting Hoi An. Good to see as part of a walking tour. A very old structure and there is lots to see inside. Very crowded some days.

Whilst you're at the old town its easy to check this out. No ticket needed. Nice lightnig at the evening.

The story about the bridge is more interesting than the bridge itself. At least thats my opinion. Also we got no ticket and could just walk over it and stuff. But didn't like it much so we proceeded.
