Know More about this tour

Your guide picks you up at your hotel in Da Nang to begin your tour with the drive to UNESCO-listed My Son Sanctuary, one of the most important sites of the ancient Kingdom of Champa. Located in a valley and surrounded by mountain peaks, My Son is one of the most fascinating sights in central Vietnam, only about 50 miles (80 km) from the city.

While excavating My Son, archaeologists found letters revealing that the complex had been used for offerings and worship of the Hindu gods since the 4th century. Originally built with wood, the temples of 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.

After your visit, return to your hotel in Da Nang.

  • 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.
