During the rainy season Hoi An is subject to flooding and that is why bridges and buildings along the river have been solidly built. We had no complaints about the weather during our visit as the sun shone every day. The famed Japanese Covered Bridge is easy to find and is definitely worth a visit. You can walk it in a few minutes from the market. The bridge was not only built to withstand floods but also earthquakes which Japanese engineers feared more than water. A small temple is built into the northern side of the bride. A pair of monkeys guard one side of the bridge and a pair of dogs the other. By coincidence a live dog was also present as you can see by the photo below.
