Japanese Covered Bridge (Chua Cau) Tours

Japanese Covered Bridge (Chua Cau)
Millions of travelers flock to the Japanese Covered Bridge (Chùa Cầu) in Hoi An every year. Built in the 18th century, the bridge features intricate carvings and statues of dogs and monkeys and provides great views of the Thu Bon River. Put aside extra time to cross the frequently crowded bridge—it’s the most popular spot in the Old Town.

The Basics
Whether you want to cross the bridge during a historical walking tour or sail beneath it on a Thu Bon River cruise, options for visiting are plentiful. Travelers can cycle around the Old Town on a bike tour or combine a stop at the bridge with a visit to My Son Sanctuary, the Hindu temple complex hailed as Vietnam’s answer to Angkor Wat. Tours typically include hotel pickup and drop-off and a traditional Vietnamese lunch.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Expect large crowds at the bridge, one of Hoi An’s most iconic attractions.
  • The bridge is a great spot from which to watch sunset on the Thu Bon River.
  • Be aware of your belongings when exploring the area around the bridge.

How to Get There
The bridge is located at the west end of Tran Phu Street, in Hoi An’s Ancient Town, the main tourism district of the city. Visitors who don’t want to walk the often-congested bridge can still snap some scenic photos before grabbing dinner at one of the many nearby restaurants.

When to Get There

If you want to feel like you’ve got the Old Town all to yourself, head to the Japanese Covered Bridge around sunrise, when crowds are at a minimum and only locals wander the streets of Hoi An Ancient Town. Alternatively, head to the bridge around lunchtime, when most tours groups stop for lunch and you may get a crowd-free photo.

Street Food in Hoi An

In addition to historical architecture, Hoi An is known for its street food, which showcases the best of Vietnamese cuisine. If you plan to visit the Japanese Covered Bridge at night, head to Hoi An’s night market to sample local delicacies such as pork banh mi (Vietnamese sandwich) and avocado ice cream.
Address: At the West end of Tran Phu St, Hoi An 564010, Vietnam
