Hoi An

Hội An (meaning “peaceful meeting place”) is a city on Vietnam’s central coast known for its well-preserved Ancient Town, cut through with canals.

The former port city’s melting-pot history is reflected in its architecture, a mix of eras and styles from wooden Chinese shophouses and temples to colorful French colonial buildings, ornate Vietnamese tube houses and the iconic Japanese Covered Bridge with its pagoda.

It is recognized as an exceptionally well-preserved example of a Southeast Asian trading port dating from the 15th to the 19th century,

It is noted since 1999 as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Japanese Bridge

Hoi An’s Japanese covered bridge dates back to the 18th century and is a beautiful historical piece of Japanese architecture.
It is claimed that it was created by the Japanese then living in Hoi An as a way to reach the Chinese quarter across the water.

The bridge was opened by Nguyen Phuc Chu Lord in 1719 and underwent renovation work in 1986.

The Japanese Covered Bridge is very well preserved and features a roof, which means you can visit at any time of day regardless of the heat or the rain.
