Add a Point to the Map

The bridge was constructed in the early 1600's by the Japanese community, roughly 40 years before they left the city to return to Japan under the strict policy of sakoku enforced by the Tokugawa Shogunate, and renovated in 1986.

Today, it's the symbol of Hoi An.

Entry is one coupon, but it's possible to cross back and forth several times without meeting a ticket-checker. If your scruples are bothering you, feel free to leave tribute for the pig statue or the dog statue who stand guard at opposite ends of the bridge.

Type of place: Monument/Building
Location: Hoi An, Vietnam
Street address: west end of Tran Phu Street
