    My Son (Me Sohn as in John)

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It is an ancient Hindu temple sight but reduced to rubble by American bombs. The US thought this was a hot bed of Vietcong activity but then again anything that moved was considered to be Vietcong.

    The covered bridge is a magnificent building created by Japanese. A temple is in the centre of the bridge and adjacent are some of the oldest buildings found in Hoi An.

    It was fun just to wander around the town and look. Remember to look up though as much of the best architecture is to be seen above ground level.

    assembly halls

    there are a few in the old town. They look like temples but they are really assembly halls. Decorated beautifully. It's worth to have a guide explaining all the symbols and figures inside

    The temples

    Again a choise to visit temples looking a little bit different like the rest in Vietnam. This is a helper of the sea godness, who protected the seadriver on their way.

    Hoi An looked lovely in the evening. I was lodged in a hostel in downtown and I walked to have dinner across the bridge and saw the atmosphere of the picture.
