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.

  • It is not far from city center. You can rent a bicycle or motorcycle, walk around the outskirts of Hue, move the super beautiful rice fields. The bridge is a symbol of culture here, walked next to a traditional local farming. I like a lot of relax here and enjoy the air of quiet of a small village
