Hoi An Travel

Covered bridge

Since its building, Chua Cau (the Japanese covered Bridge) has remained deeply and unchangeably in the sub conscience of Hoi An people thanks to its sole uniqueness. Consisting of two different structures, a pagoda (actually more a shrine than a pagoda) and a covered bridge, the monument spans a little stream.

Vietnamese, Japanese, Chinese contributed to building Chua Cau and the monument therefore reflects the friendship and communication of these peoples once coexisting in peace at Hoi An commercial port town.

Built at different times by Hoi An talented workmen, Chua Cau still retains a harmony of architectural styles, combining Chinese, Vietnamese, Japanese cultural characteristics.
