Thanh Toan Bridge, Hue

#30 of 202 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.

  • 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.
