A local favorite, construction on this covered bridge began in the Year of the Monkey (1593) and was finished in the Year of the Dog (1595), hence the monkey and dog sculptures at either end.

Nice piece of history, but not really worth one of our five entrance tickets in the Ancient Town. You get the best pictures from the outside anyways, so I’d suggest reading about it rather than waste a ticket going through.

While visiting the old town, you wouldn’t miss this nice spot. Take a look on the level of water on 2017. Enjoy.

Dont think you would miss out much, unless you are deep into historical sights. I walked in through a couple of times without a ticket and they dint seem to mind. But tourists who looked confused or new seemed to be pushed for a ticket...More
