Vietnam: Hội An

Hội An is a city on Vietnam’s central coast known for its well-preserved Ancient Town, cut through with canals. The former port city’s melting-pot history is reflected in its architecture, a mix of eras and styles from wooden Chinese shophouses and temples to colorful French colonial buildings, ornate Vietnamese tube houses and the iconic Japanese Covered Bridge with its pagoda.

Thanks to Dr Kiran Acharya who was visiting Vietnam. He has used three stamps issued in 2020 featuring Chua Cau, Chau Cau or Japanese bridge is footbridge with a temple atop.
