Full description
Spend the day exploring well-preserved history and culture in and around Hoi An by visiting an abandoned Hindu temple complex and walking through the city's Ancient Town. Learn the fascinating history of the region with an English-speaking tour guide while taking in natural and architectural beauty.  After being picked up at your hotel, this day trip begins with a visit to the capital and religious center of the former Champa Kingdom, My Son, which has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage site. Beautifully situated in a lush green valley, this serene sanctuary represents the unique culture’s spiritual origins in Indian Hinduism. Walk around, marvel at, and learn the history behind the dozens of red brick tower temples built over 10 centuries. After the first half of the tour, stop for lunch at a local restaurant. In the afternoon, discover the coastal city of Hoi An on foot. The historic Ancient Town, another World Heritage site, was a prosperous seaport city from the 15th to 19th century. Learn about the multicultural history of this wonderfully preserved city with visits to the Hoi An Museum, the Assembly Halls of Chinese influence, the Art and Craft Manufacturing Workshop, the must-see Japanese Covered Bridge, and many of the town’s renowned ancient houses boasting remarkable architecture.   These sites are considered typical architectural styles in Hoi An and reflect the French, Japanese, Chinese, and Vietnamese cross-cultural influences. Spanning hundreds of years and withstanding severe weather conditions, Hoi An still thrives, retaining its ancient and quiet beauty.

Very nice walk. The ruins of My Son are worth it. Although they cannot be compared to The Ruins of Angkor, they give us a glimpse of the Champa kingdom that competed with the Khmer kingdom. Lunch in a nice place and later visit to the romantic Hoi An. Excellent and very warm guide
