Know More about this tour

From the 4th to the 13th centuries, the Champa Kingdom flourished on the coast of Vietnam with My Son as its religious and intellectual center. After your private guide picks you up at your hotel, head out on the 30-mile (50-km) drive to the stunning ancient temple complex, declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1999.

Located in a valley of dramatic beauty, the monuments of My Son are the most important constructions of the Champa Kingdom. As your guide takes you through the complex, learn about the history, architectural styles and cultural significance of the temples. Some 20 remain out of more than 70 temples that once spread out over this beautiful valley; several are well-preserved while others are in ruins, some damaged during the Vietnam War.

While you walk, get out your camera for photographs of the temples with dramatic mountain backdrops, and listen as your guide explains the influence of India and Hinduism on the Champa people and points out the Hindu deities memorialized at My Son.

After a fascinating morning of exploring the My Son temples, depart around noon to return to your Hoi an hotel.

    This was a very good tour of the Cham ruins. Guide had good technical knowledge and paced the visit very well. A half-day is adequate, but the grounds are pleasant and a bit more time might be worth it.

    This was a great trip to get some little insight into the Chama people. The site needs to be better prepared/cleared for visitors. There needs to be a readily accessible museum with dispays of artifacts interactive displays of the history behind these people. It probably won't happen because these were a people conquered by the Vietnamese. The work being done by archeologists in restoring the temples is fantastic and to be commended. Glad we went - just wish there was more displayed.
