Come to Hue, many people say that it's too many thing to visit. If they go this place, they regret about not going to others. Thanh Toan Bridge is one of those places. This is not the place in any tour. You just hear about it in Mandarin Cafe. When you come there, you can see an enless yellow rice feild, a lady with the poem hat on her head rising the duck. Stop and take a rest on the bridge and get some exciting information about your futur life with a fortune teller...
The quiet country lanes and picturesque monuments make Hue an ideal place for cycling. The tile-roofed ThanhToan Bridge is not only an ancient architectural remain with highly historic and cultural values but also a tourist attraction.

On both sides of lean their backs. The bridge is roofed with tubes.
On this bridge, you will meet the old lady, she is the fortune teller and speaks English well. She will tell you about your future. She is also a beautiful and cheerful woman who like smoking.You are lucky if you come there in the harvast season. You can catch the sight of the farmer cutting rice or the children on the buffalo’s back and see the endless yellow rice field. That’s the true working life of the Vietnamese farmer who went in to the poem “the buffalo go ahead and the plough follows”
An other interesting here is the traditional argriculture Museum in which there are many argriculture tools of the farmers such as plough, hen, rake. The amazing things is that there is a woman who can not speak English but is considered the best tourgider in Vietnam by the tourists. She explains all the things about how the farmers use those tools by using only body language. She wears the cloths like the farmers and imitates their work like catching fish, making rice powder,...If before the 1930s, you could see some movie star such as Charlie Chaplin, Lauren and Hardy in the no soud film, this woman acts even better than them!
