About Japanese Covered Bridge, Hoi An

Emblematic of Hoi An, construction of this bridge commenced in the Year of Monkey and finished in the year of the Dog and hence the sculptures of the monkey and the dog at the end of the bridge. Over the centuries the ornamentation has remained relatively faithful to the original understated Japanese design. The French flattened out the roadway for their motor vehicles, but the original arched shape was restored in 1986.

Japanese Covered Bridge, Hoi An Reviews

  • It is a nice historic place to visit, although it needs some reparations because it's an old structure and it's full of people every time in the day. There were a lot of tourists walking alongside the bridge. The inside part was quite good but you cannot find some much information about the istory of the old structure in the place. You have to pay for a ticket to get into the bridge but if you don't want to do that you can't get in from the other side directly from the street.

  • Historical site I assumed. Btw, it's the bridge on the 20k bill. The place is filled with tourists so you need to be patient if you want to get a decent picture. It's a good looking bridge but it's more symbolic than a monument. Unfortunately you need to use a stamp to walk through the bridge but it's so crowded that they don't really cheap most of the time

  • Well kinda cute I guess. But this really is nothing special. If you've seen a decent picture of this then there's not much more to get out of it. It doesn't cost anything to cross like some people say. I've crossed it several times and I've never had a ticket or had anyone ask me to show one. Take a picture if you are nearby but don't make an effort to see it.

  • As a symbol of Hội An, Chùa Cầu bridge is a pretty small and cozy bridge where you can learn a lot about Hoi An history. Really relaxing to seeing people walking around. In addition, it's also a nice place to taking pictures as a memory to your trip. Must visit.

  • Nice but at the end of the day it's just a bridge. Disgusting smells around it.. if you fell into the water there you'd instantly die. Just disgusting
