Our tour company suggested a wee trip out here early one morning. It requires a brief drive out of Hue into the countryside and through a couple of local villages with some great pagodas to sleepy Thuy Thanh village.

The bridge is very similar in style and architecture to the Japanese bridge in Hoi An but the free admission, quiet country surroundings and lack of tacky tourist shops/stalls made this a much more enjoyable experience.

Next to the bridge was a wonderful local market, largely free of dodgy tourist tat, fake t-shirts and handbags. We strolled around and watch the locals go about there business - with stalls selling fruit, vegetables, fish, meat, clothes, etc etc etc. A fabulous chance to take in local life without hassle or pressures. Indeed the locals were very friendly and happy to be photographed.

On the bridge we met a number of local school girls who wanted to talk and say hello. Across the bridge there is a very small but nonetheless interesting "museum" that demonstrates how rice is transformed from the fields into everyday produce. A 10 minute guide from an interesting and engaging local. There was also a very old lady offering to tell your fortune. She was extremely busy so I'll have to wait to find out what life has in store for me.

If you have the time to get out here we would highly recommend it.

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!

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.
