Know More about this tour

Depart by minivan from your hotel in the morning or afternoon, depending on which option you select upon booking. Located in the heart of a beautiful valley and surrounded by high mountains that feed the Thu Bon River, My Son Sanctuary was developed over a period of 10 centuries.

When you reach the UNESCO World Heritage site, follow your guide on a walking tour around the impressive tower-temples — remains of the political and religious capital of the Champa Kingdom. Admire the structures, which were originally built with wood, then restored in the 7th century with locally made brick after the temples were completely destroyed by fire one century earlier.

By the 13th century, more than 70 similar temples had been built, establishing My Son as a sanctuary of Hinduism in the Champa Kingdom. As you marvel at sandstone bas-reliefs depicting scenes from Hindu mythology, learn about the My Son civilization’s devotion to Hindu deities like Krishna, Vishnu and Shiva.

After exploring the delights of My Son Sanctuary with fascinating commentary from your guide, head back to Hoi An, where you’ll be dropped off at your hotel.

  • The tour was great even though it was a wet day. We were picked up at our hotel on time and guide Eric was very informative on trip to My Son. At My Son Eric again had good info without going over the top with detail.
    Driver was excellent.
    Highly recommended.

  • Awesome trip, with a small and intimate group of 5 adults and 2 children. Our guide was chilled yet informative, and always made sure we got the best vantage points, photos and stayed away from the cruise ship crowds! 100 recommend - thank you! :

  • Good trip with plenty to see but unfortunately our guide was a little difficult to understand and tended to jump around the subject matter. We stayed in Hoi-an but had to pick up people in Da nang so the trip was extended somewhat. The obligatory 'shopping experience' to the marble carving centre was interesting with no real pressure to buy.

  • Interesting tour.

  • The trip was real fun. The guide spoke good English, he held high energy and was very humorous. Also, during our visit at the site, he explained to us a lot of things about the history of My Son temples. The temples are located in a very beautiful scenery filled with green. It is a highly recommended trip, even though I'd recommend it more if it wasn't as pricey. I think for the kind of the things you see, cost around 30 might have been more reasonable. But other than that there wasn't anything else not to love about!

  • This tour was amazing!

  • I did the My Son morning tour with my partner in mid July. We were picked up from our hotel about 730am on the day in a mini van, then collected another couple along the way at a hotel near ours there were only 6 ppl on our tour. We were then taken to a marble sculpture warehouse for a quick stop off then we headed off to the My Son site, about a 45 minute drive. It was a nice drive along the way through various towns, when we arrived we were dropped off at the entrance to the site gate and walked about 3 minutes to a shuttle which then drove us about 2 kms to the site. It was a fantastic tour and a great opportunity to take some photographs. The guide explained the various structures and who lived in them. Some were destroyed in the war so we weren't able to view these sites as there are virtually no remains left to see.
    After viewing 4 of the sites about 5 minutes walk between each we headed back to the shuttle and then the mini van for the drive back to our hotel. Our guide was very friendly and took the time to explain Vietnamese culture along the way to the site and well as the history behind the site when we were there, there was a slight language barrier so it was hard sometimes to grasp exactly what was being explained.
    I highly recommend this tour but one warning I felt wasn't noted anywhere was the heat!! We had been in Vietnam for over a week before this tour so we were well adjusted but being inland amongst the dense bushland the heat hit you like a wall walking to the shuttle bus. My partner and I are fit and in our late 20's, I got back in the bus and said to my partner that I had never experienced humidity and heat like that in any other travels or just life! It was hot!! There was some shade under trees but most of the ruins are out in the open with no relief, I had to walk away from the group one or two times to find some shade just for a few moments relief. I often thought about people a lot older or those who don't cope well in the heat, or those with medical conditions, I worry to think about where you would find medical help if needed. I must note the mini van had excellent air conditioning and it was heaven getting back in that bus! We even closed the air vents about half way through on the drive home as we were cold believe it or not! I suggest bringing a hat, layer on the sunscreen and bring plenty of water!! But a great experience!

  • The small group tour was perfect for us. We were a group on 4 adults and 3 children aged 11,8 and 3. This tour was 4.5 hours which was long enough with younger children. The tour guide was really knowledgable, he spoke good english and answered all our questions. They did keep up the pace but I was glad of this as we saw everything with enough time and before the heat set in. I would definitely recommend this.

  • Fascinating site, guide took time to explain the history to us, answer our questions and even took photos for us. Great tour!

  • 5 star excursion A must see Great as location well documented guide Great company Martine - Belgium
