Thanh Toan Bridge, Hue

#32 of 252 in Things to do in Hue
Spanning a countryside canal, Thanh Toan Bridge serves as a fine example of a Japanese-style tile-roofed bridge. See the elaborately carved arched entrance decorated with ancient Vietnamese and Chinese calligraphy, and notice how, from a distance, the bridge resembles a traditional house. A childless wife of an important Mandarin and a native of the village, Thi Dao, built the bridge for her fellow villagers and travelers who needed rest. Look for a small altar dedicated to her memory, which the villagers laid upon emperor’s orders in 1925.

  • In the hamlet of Thuy Thanh, just behind Hue, is the second and last indoor Japanese bridge in Vietnam, the first one in Hoi An. It is a very valuable historical monument, but it takes longer to get there for 15 minutes, except for a few locals, bored obsessing with nowhere. But the neighborhood is very nice and make your trip and connect it with the surrounding historical tombs is all day and it's worth it. That's why most history lovers are here, too.

  • Lovely wooden old covered bridge in a tiny village in the country side near Hue. Go there by bicycle and enjoy the rice paddies and water ways. Go to the Happy Café and Restaurant nearby for a good Italian Espresso.
