Thanh Toan Bridge, Hue

4.4
#10 of 28 in Sightseeing in Hue
Bridge Tourist Spot
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.

  • Interesting bridge. Locals were taking nap in the bridge. But i wouldn't make a purpose trip.
  • A tiled roof bridge built from the 18th century. Very nice ceramic decoration. Next to a local market that would offer foreigners a great experience about how a small local market in actions.
  • Nice place. But what worths more - rural area around. You will see some rice fields and villages on the way to the bridge. That's a wonderful experience. Come in the evening - me sunset here. It really looks great. Bridge by itself is just ok
  • Lễ hội chợ quê được tổ chức tại đây cứ 2 năm 1 lần vào ngày 3 âm lịch, hoặc vào mỗi kỳ festival Huế (khoảng từ giữa năm).
  • Beautiful village, friendly local people. Mrs Kinh who lives next to the market was so good with us, we bought local candy and fresh coconut them she sang some songs written by her.
