These are pics of the Pagoda Bridge (Chua Cau) located in Hoi An in central Vietnam.
This covered bridge is one of Hoi An's main attractions.
This bridge over a small stream was built by the Japanese community back in 1593. It links the Japanese and Chinese quarters.
On both ends of the bridge there are altars with guardians; dogs on one side, and monkeys on the other.
In the middle of the bridge there is a small temple.
These are pics of Thanh Toan Bridge located 7km east of Hue in central Vietnam.
The covered bridge was built over 200 years ago in 1776 over Nhu Y River which flows around Thanh Toan Village in Thuy Thanh Commune, Huong Thuy District.
The bridge is made from precious wood and is tile-roofed with a length of 17 meters (55.7 feet) and a width of four meter (13 feet).
On both sides of the bridge are rows of wooden platforms and parapets for people to lean against. The bridge was used as a place of relaxation for travelers and villagers after field work.
A lady named Tran Thi Dao who had married a high-ranking mandarin, provided financial support for the construction of the bridge so that villagers on both sides of the river could cross without getting wet or transport goods easily and weary travelers could rest.
was there in August which is stinking hot and the water level is low (as seen in the pics) but the area is subject to heavy flooding.
