“Real taste of the countryside, interesting bridge”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013 via mobile

We didn't have a flight until afternoon, so our tour leader had the bus take us to this 16C. bridge half hr. outside Hue. It was one of the high points of our trip. Located in a small village in the middle of huge rice fields, we were able to walk along the road and watch the farmers plough, level and plant rice. Some came over to show us the sprouted rice seedlings. The bridge was interesting & beautiful and the nearby Rice growing museum was really interesting. The old lady who shows you around speaks no English, but demonstrates, sometimes with song, every phase of rice harvest from gathering to grinding fine rice powder. She was delightful, should be classified a national treasure!

“Local meeting point in the countryside”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

A wonderful old timber covered bridge that is a great place for meeting the local people. Situated in the countryside close to Hue, the bridge is adjacent to a small market square. The bridge has seating along each side and decroations throughout. After crossing the bridge there is an interesting agricultural museum with a very enthusiastic lady who is keen to demonstrate the tools and farming implements.
