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.
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
Housed in a traditional merchant’s house, the museum is known for its fine collection of objects relating to the town’s heydays as an important trading port.
As also the next must sees, you buy a 5er ticket where you have a little choise to visit the must sees of these former chinese port.
The Bridge was our first stop.
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.
We left My Son on boat which chugged up the Thu Bon River to Hoi An. It was pleasant way to end the tour,
this is one of the first gate i saw in vietnam.
i didn't go inside so i don't know what building inside.
but it's beautiful and looks chinese.
This was the Assembly Hall I chose to visit with my Hoi An Tourist ticket. It is situated close to the Japanese Covered Bridge and was founded in 1786.
Built in 1883, this hall was buil as a memorial to 108 merchants from Hainan Island who were mistaken for pirates and killed.
