Get to My Son Sanctuary before sunrise and escape the crowds and midday heat. This 5.5-hour tour takes you there by 4WD military Jeep and lets you explore the mysterious ruins of the Hindu temple complex, a UNESCO World Heritage site dating to the Cham dynasty. Travel through the Thu Bon River Delta, with a countryside breakfast along the way. Upgrade for a full-day adventure and eat a traditional local lunch.

What to Expect

Rise before dawn to meet your guide in the lobby of your Hoi An hotel. A later start time can be arranged for those who prefer, but arriving at My Son Sanctuary around sunrise is optimal. Board a military Jeep and travel past rice fields in the Thu Bon River Delta region. You'll make a stop at a bustling market gathered around an ancient banyan tree. Sip Vietnamese coffee while you stroll and watch the market come to life.

Your countryside journey continues to a local village where you're served a traditional Vietnamese breakfast. From here, it's a short ascent on foot along a jungle path to the silent ruins of My Son. 

Reaching the top, an impressive collection of red-brick structures, dating back to the 4th to 13th centuries, comes into view. You'll explore the UNESCO-listed Cham temples as your guide explains their religious and historical significance. While you learn about the burial site for Cham royalty, listen to the sounds of Champa music accompanying a traditional dance performance.

On the return drive to Hoi An, your guide avoids the main roads via rice paddies where photo ops abound.

Note: If you've upgraded for full-day tour at booking, you'll see more of the countryside and travel through villages. A traditional lunch of my quang soup is provided.

The trip itself can be said to be two parts - the journey and experience getting to My Son and the ancient temples themselves. As is often the way you get asked "what else are you doing while you are here" and a few times...More
