Thanh Toan Bridge – Thanh Tien and Sinh villages


Depart your hotel with your local guide and first transfer by road to visit Thanh Toan. Built two centuries ago the
covered bridge of Thanh Toan is unique in that only two exist in Vietnam (the other being in Hoi An). Built as a tribute
to the villagers by the wife of a high ranking Mandarin. Next to the bridge is the local village morning market which
can be explored if you desire. Continue by road further into the countryside outside Hue City. Your destination is the
small village of Thanh Tien which was traditionally the place where local craftsmen produced paper flowers, with
techniques that had been passed down through the generations for hundreds of years. The flowers are used in religious
services and as offerings in traditional special occasions including during the Tet Lunar New Year holidays. A short
distance away, the traditional woodblock printing village of Sinh lies along the lower section of the Perfume River
overlooking temples and pagodas. The colourful prints are generally used around the Lunar New Year period as burning
effigies for ancestor worship. Visit family homes in the village where this craft has been practised for generations and
get a chance to meet the artisans and learn more about their age-old techniques.
