THUA THIEN-HUE (VNS) — Fewer visitors are arriving at the roof-tiled Thanh Toan bridge – a sister of the Japanese-style bridge in Hoi An – that serves as a favourite rural gateway during hot summer days.
The source of the decline in visitor numbers is the barrier that has been erected across the entrance, 50m ahead of the bridge site, by local authorities. Many visitors said the barrier unnecessarily forces them to walk this distance to the site. They also cited concerns about having to pay for parking since they do not know where the money ends up.
