Know More about this tour

Our guide will pick up you at your hotel and depart for My Son, one of the most important sites of the ancient kingdom of Champa. Located in the heart of a beautiful valley and surrounded by high mountains ranges, My Son is one of the most stunning sights to see in Central Vietnam and only around 80km from Da Nang city. Whilst excavating My Son, letters found revealed that this complex has been used for offerings and worship of the Hindu god since the 4th century. In 1999, UNESCO declared My Son a Unesco World Heritage Site.

This is graphically illustrated by the remains of a series of impressive tower-temples located in a dramatic site that was the religious and political capital of the Champa Kingdom for most of its existence.

Originally built with wood, the temples in My Son were completely destroyed by fire in the 6th century and restored in the 7th century by Sambhuvarman who rebuilt the temples with locally made bricks. Up to the 13th century, more than 70 similar temples were built, establishing My Son as a sanctuary of Hinduism in the Champa Kingdom. Take a walking tour around the sanctuary, you will discover many interesting and special towers, the embodiment of the Cham architecture. Through the atrocity of the war and climate, this holy complex of towers still remains the original architecture.

  • We had a lovely tour of My Son.......Ming our guide was very informative and passionate about the area and was considerate of our needs in the extremely hot humid weather!

  • Excellent small group tour in a comfortable air con car. Friendly and informative tour guide who answered all our questions. Very hot and humid at My Son so thankful for water and wet towelettes.
    Would have been good to have some visuals to look and help with explanation, as sometimes difficult to understand tour guide.
    Overall a great half day tour.

  • Our first trip to Vietnam would not have been complete without this very informative excursion to the beautiful area of My Son. Our tour guide, Mr.Van, not only is knowledgeable about the local history but global history as well. Mr. Van was able convey through his charming English the many reasons Vietnam had been a war-torn country for hundreds of years. His knowledge and gift of story telling helped to make this adventure a most memorable one. My Son Sanctuary itself was very interesting. A performance of Cham dancers introduced us to a bit of their cultural history and close up encounters with the temple structures left us in awe of the Cham's architectual skills. Highly recommend this tour with Mr. Van!

  • Fantastic tour. We were picked up from our home stay in a very comfortable, air conditioned car and even the drive to the site was interesting! Our guide was so knowledgeable and friendly, answering any questions we had and inspired to us to look deeper into the history of site after our tour had finished. Given what it's been through it's unbelievable that anything still stands! We decided to go in the afternoon, seeing the site at midday was awe-inspiring. You have just enough time to explore the site and take in the history, including entering some of the buildings - pretty incredible to find yourself stood in exact spots where people will have been stood centuaries before. Highly recommend this tour.

  • Excellent tour of My Son sanctuary with Wuk. There were only 2 of us on this small group tour and we were picked up from our Da Nang hotel. Our driver was safe and careful and we enjoyed the drive through rural Vietnam about 1 hour 20 mins. My Son is an amazing site and Wuk was a very good guide explaining the history of the Cham people and culture. On our return journey we were offered a stop at Marble Mountain, but preferred not to stop.

  • Tour guide is very friendly and knowledgable about my son sanctuary history and he could speak fluent english. The comapny also offer a lot of different other tours that will suit everybody's need.

  • We learned a great deal about history during the tour. Our guide was friendly and funny throughout the trip. It was a beautiful tourist spot and is highly recommended to everyone.
