Full description
Our guide will pick you up at your hotel and depart to 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 80 kilometers 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. The My Son Sanctuary is a remarkable architectural ensemble that developed over a period of ten centuries. It presents a vivid picture of spiritual and political life in an important phase of the history of South-East Asia. 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.

Sehr schöne und kurzweilige Tour. Unser Guide hat uns alles sehr geduldig erklärt und durch das große Areal geführt. Aufgrund des Taifuns wurde die Tour kurzfristig um einen Tag nach vorne verlegt, wir wurden direkt kontaktiert ob das passt. super flexibler Service! Sehr beeindruckende Tour, die mit 4-5h auch nicht zu lange dauert. Keine Kaffeefahrt o.ä. und wirklich eine Reise wert!

The private tour was great. We were picked up directly at the hotel and the manager was very nice and spoke very good English. Along the way she shared lots of information with us and once we arrived you could tell how well she knew the ruins/people. The tour was just beautiful and we can recommend it

We were picked up on time, but went to grab one more party where we were waiting for 30 minutes. No issues on the drive there and back. Our guide was very knowledgeable on the history of My Son and had a lot to say about the ruins and the old kingdom. However, this led to us having little free time for us to explore on our own. We pretty much stayed only at the first site of ruins.
