Japanese Covered Bridge

Hoi An, Vietnam

If there’s only one thing you see when in Hoi An, make it the solidly built Japanese Covered Bridge. The original one was built by the Japanese in 1590’s. The current bridge is said to be a faithful representation of the original design and the arch has been retained. There are many animals featured such as dogs (to guard it) and monkeys both of which are symbolic. Being inside a wooden bridge is an amazing feeling and it reeks of history. It has a very pretty small temple too. Around the bridge are numerous cafes, restaurants and bars. They’re on the river side and street side. It’s very photogenic too, especially if you go there at the either end of the day when the light it good. It’s easy to find in this small town.
