Stop At:  
My Son Sanctuary
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.

Fantastic tour and wonderful tour guide!

We had an absolutely fantastic tour to My Son sanctuary from Hoi An with our brilliant tour guide Tom! Tom made the day even better for us with his excellent knowledge and humour from start to finish. We learned so much on our tour and would recommend it to anyone. Thanks again Tom!

Wonderful Day Trip

We really enjoyed our day trip to the My Son Sanctuary! Our guide was very knowledgeable. We decided to take the afternoon tour and it was very hot. It was nice, though, because we were the only ones there.
Poor guide

Just driven to and dropped at there. Not real depth of explanation of anything. Shame, I bet there is lots to know about this place!
Amazing tour!

We really enjoyed the tour, service was great, very punctual and also informative. I would highly recommend it!
Enriching experience!

Husband and I booked morning tour on May 2. Was hoping to start early as planned (7.30am) but was told the night before that pick-up time was to be pushed back to 8am to accommodate 2 additional persons in the group. The ride to My Son in the last row of the MPV was very uncomfortable with very limited headroom and legroom. However, fortunately or unfortunately, because the driver drove very fast, we were able to get there in about 45 minutes. It was a hair-raising ride with quite a few near misses when the driver kept driving on the opposite direction of the road. However, our guide "Thai" saved the day. He was most attentive and professional. The trip to My Son became a very enriching experience because of his in-depth knowledge of the place and history behind the ruins. He was also an excellent communicator. He literally made history come alive for us! We highly recommend this tour. Just a tip to share: We skipped the cultural show and went to the first ruins cluster to take photos before the crowd descended on the place after the show. Our guide joined us after that to give us the guided tour.

Excellent and very interesting excursion! I really enjoyed it. Keep your expectations in check if you've been to Angkor Wat. It's definitely not on that scale, but still worth seeing in my estimation.

This tour was okay. It would be better if more information about the background and history of the ruins was available at the site. The dance show is interesting and entertaining. The guide was friendly enough. Frankly, the the kids were a little bored most of the day.

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! :
