A local favorite, construction on this covered bridge began in the Year of the Monkey (1593) and was finished in the Year of the Dog (1595), hence the monkey and dog sculptures at either end.

A fabulous piece of history. We only walked through it, but it makes you think about how the structure was built and why is it still standing after all these years. The fish swimming underneath the bridge in the filthy water also beggars belief!

A pretty bridge. Must be made well because it holds the hundreds of tourists crammed on there taking selfies. You won't really miss it if you wonder around. But probably not an attraction in itself. Go in the early morning to avoid the crowds

Not the coolest bridge but it was in the heart of hoi an so al the restaurants and the night market was in a radius of 100m from the bridge. The bridge itself was not anything special.

This Bridge is amazing, but beware you have to pay to enter although if you walk around and come through from the other side there is no payment required

Crowded with tourists busy taking pictures or selffie or wefie on the Japanese Bridge and no one seems to be interested in its history. Understandable as this bridge is the landmark of Hoi An. If you have not been here, you have not been to...More
