Hoi An's Japanese Covered Bridge is one of Vietnam's most iconic attractions, and is one of the top attractions in the city. Located in the Old Town, this historical landmark dates back to the 18th century and was constructed to link the Japanese community with the Chinese quarters located across the water. This well preserved bridge has original Japanese designs and even features a roof, which means it can be visited no matter what the weather. On both entrances of the bridge, visitors will come across weathered statues of a pair of monkeys and a pair of dogs. While crossing the bridge tourists will see a variety of beautiful paintings for sale, done by artists living nearby. Standing as a symbol of Hoi An, the Japanese Covered Bridge still remains aesthetically pleasing and will prove to be a fantastic location to get some great pictures.
