Full description
Rich with cultural and historic significance, My Son sanctuary is one of the most beautiful and important religious sites in Vietnam. Your tour starts early, with pickup from your expert English-speaking guide at 8:00 AM - 8:30 AM. After a stunning drive through amidst lush hills and rushing rivers, you’ll arrive at the My Son at 10:00 AM — still early enough to beat the heat.

Wandering through the ruins of ancient temples to the Hindu god Shiva, your guide will recount the fascinating history of the kingdom of Champa, whose religious leaders began the construction of My Son in the 4th-century. See the ornate towers, now covered with bright green grass, with ornate pillars still suggesting the beauty of the complex when it was built.

After 2.5 hours of exploring, you’ll hop on a colorful boat bound back for Hoi An, where you’ll gather more priceless insight from your guide while you enjoy a local vegetarian lunch. Drifting down the Thu Bôn River, you'll get a further taste of the verdant beauty of the Vietnamese countryside, flanked by mountains and jungles on either side. By 2:30 PM you’ll be back at Nguyen Hoang pier in Hoi An, ready to take on the rest of your day.

You get what you pay for. You are picked up and taken directly to My Son and the guide briefly describes each temple as you go along. The only regret is that you don't get much time to explore on your own and only 30 mins. I opted for the boat ride at the end of the tour which was a bit of fun instead of sitting on the bus back to town. A light lunch was included (nothing fancy).

Location was great, guide was nice and was funny but his English was hard to follow which made certain parts of the tour a bit boring because we couldn’t understand what he was saying. They picked us up from our hotel but the bus was a little bit dodgy and was about an hour late. River cruise was nice as was the food.

Excellent value. Arrived at hotel on time, our guide was very entertaining and informative and there was time to see the temples on your own. Do take plenty of fluids, or take every opportunity to buy some as it can get very hot and there isn't much shade. Lunch was simple but OK. Would use them again.
