Hoi An Ancient City Pasar Malam/Japanaese Covered Bridge of Hoi An

Hoi An Ancient Town: Hoi An old town by night

 We are all getting ready to go to Hoi An Pasar Malam....and dinner too!

 They had not returned their bike rentals so they used bicycles to get to Hoi An Old Town

 chinese influence in Hoi An
 "Coming here, tourists can see a series of old-architectured lanes and houses with nearly 100% left from their initial buildings with mossgrown walls, deeply plain roofs, old furniture in their past arrangement:"

Before we found dinner, we found the ancient Japanese Bridge, so we had to take photos
 Hoi An has been through a few centuries of history, but still remains as in the very first days of its being born. Its two main historical landmarks are the occupying of the Japanese & Chinese, and the Western (Dutch and Spanish) during the 16th and 17th centuries. During the period of the China trade, the town was called Hai Pho (Sea Town) in Vietnamese. Originally Hai Pho was a divided town, because across the "Japanese Bridge", it used to be the Japanese settlement (16th-17th century)

The Japanese Covered Bridge or Cau Chua Pagoda (in 

Vietnamese “Cau Nhat Ban”) is one of the most famous 

tourist attractions in Hoi An, Vietnam.
The structure is very solidly constructed because of the threat of earthquakes. Over the centuries the ornamentation has remained relatively faithful to the original understated Japanese design

 our picture....not so nicely lighted bridge, but we look cute as a couple, no?
 The Japanese Covered Bridge or Cau Chua Pagoda (in Vietnamese “Cau Nhat Ban”) is one of the most famous tourist attractions in Hoi An, Vietnam. The original Vietnamese name of this bridge is “Lai Vien Kieu”. It is considered that the Japanese Covered Bridge belongs to the Japanese community in Hoi An, and was built in the early seventeenth century. No trip to Hoi An would be completely without visiting Japanese Covered bridge.

 This beautiful little bridge is emblematic of Hoi An. A bridge was first constructed here in the 1590s by the Japanese community in order to link them with the Chinese quarters across the stream.
