Ornate Japanese bridge near Hue
Jan 2020
The bridge is an ornate Japanese bridge located in the quiet Thuy Thanh village, around 7km east of Hue. We visited this with a tour guide, as part of a group of 12 people touring Vietnam and Cambodia. The bridge leads to the open market on the other side, which is also worth a visit.

Another place to visit while you are here is Thanh Toan Museum.

Bridge gone, completely removed - renovation/intent unclear
Jul 2020
Having seen this bridge before, took a cab to see it again as the drive there (better by motorbike to enjoy the scenery) is nice in that you see the coastal flats, paddies, and the mountains to the west. However, upon arrival the bridge had been completely removed and the remaining bridge supports. Makes one seriously question the authenticity of the bridge. Very little remained and the surrounding businesses were all boarded up. Apparently, the taxi driver knew it was closed and didn't other sharing that until we arrived. Obviously many people have fallen on hard times with the effects of COVID-19 on tourism, but alittle transparency goes a long way.

Avoid for now, or be sure to ask locals ahead of time if the bridge is even still there.

Waste of time presently. There's nothing old or 18th century-ish about it now.

Beautiful bridge in the small village
Mar 2020 • Couples
Lovely Japanese bridge built 1776 with beautiful lanterns in the trees around the bridge. The area around it is now very quiet and not much happening in the market. It could be the corona virus. We cycled from central Hue and the trip was worth it but if you are not fit or are a nervous cyclist rather get a taxi.

This bridge is worth visiting as is the sleepy commune of Thuy Thanh.
Feb 2020
The bridge was built in the 18th century by Ms.Tran Thi Dao the wife of one of emperor's high ranking courtiers and is highly decorated. In 1920, an altar was installed on the bridge to keep a permanent monument in honour of Ms Tran Thi Dao.
The area is very serene and it is worth visiting the local market.

Japanese Bridge
Dec 2019
The Thanh Toan Bridge is often referred to as the Japanese Bridge. Constructed in the mid-18th century, it has been maintained by the village ever since, with the exception of 1991 when the Cultural Ministry recognized the bridges historical value and renovated it. It was the highlight of our visit to this village.

Interest bridge and local market
Sep 2019 • Solo
The bridge itself was quite interesting and had elaborate panels inside. There was a small market on the other side that largely seemed to cater to locals picking up food but it also had some unique art and homemade crafts in a couple of the vendors.

Beautiful and picturesque little village in the countryside, a few kilometers from Hue
Nov 2019
Thanh Toan is a beautiful and picturesque little village in the countryside, a few kilometers from Hue. It is well worth an early morning visit to watch the colorful market and it also makes for a nice stop en route from Hue to Hoi An.

Beautiful ancient wooden bridge
Nov 2019 • Couples
Journey time by car to the bridge from Hue was approx 15 mins.

Bridge is amazing. Wooden window seats & chapel inside. Beautiful location. Few tourists.

Also pay particular attention to the village road in/out, as you will pass the Tran family temple (lots of amazing mosaic) and they were the people who actually built the bridge.

Local market runs daily till noon. Very small & fish, meat & vegetables. Weighing live chickens with their feet tied together.

Few shops on far side of bridge and one next to it for refreshments. No taxis, so book return if needed.

Well recommended. Well worth the effort.
