Thanh Toan Bridge, 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.

  • Be careful, this bridge might be a reproduction of the true bridge. You cant see it anyway since it is INSIDE the laguna resort... unless your are a member of this place.

  • Reproduction of the whole Bar tile Bridge architecture of Hue. Bridge across the Canal that runs along the resort Laguna. Look up range. It's Great.
