Thanh Toan Bridge, Hue
(4.4/5 based on 220+ 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.

  • I rode a bicycle. It's not easy to find and do not imagine the big bus tours could include it as roads are very narrow. It is similar to the one on Hoi An but without the crowds and entrance fee. It's...  more »
  • The bridge is located a few km from Hue, you can visit him on a trip to Hoi an. The bridge is beautifully colored, and there is a market selling local fish. The village is surrounded by rice paddies, which turn into winter in ponds restocked. Look great narrow roads among those tanks-fields.

  • A beautiful, peaceful countryside and interesting. From the road the village leads to the tile bridge with two sides is Aravind rờn blue, Bowl field to the quiet surroundings and the river's airy, tile, water taxi trips ... Better than if you visit during the Festival, a lot of folk games, local cuisine and rich produce.
