Thanh Toan Bridge, Hue

(4.4/5 based on 240+ reviews on the web)
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. Using our online itinerary creator, Hue attractions like Thanh Toan Bridge can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • Very nice little covered bridge dating from the eighteenth, to visit during a ride on a motorcycle in the middle of the rice fields. On the model of Hoi An, smaller and less decorated.
