About
Hit the trails, explore the mystery, and capture the history of the amazing UNESCO listed My Son Cham temples.

Get a real insight into rural Vietnamese living and countryside views on your route to the My Son temple for a traditional countryside Vietnamese breakfast. Once your stomachs are satisfied your guided My Son tour begins with an illuminating trek around the silent ruins of this ancient city.  Tour commences daily with a minimum of 2 people at 5.30am and finishes approx. 11am. Later start for half day tours and full day option available also.

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.

A brilliant experience
I highly recommend the Sunrise tour to My Son. We travelled with a very helpful and experienced (and fun) guide, called Phi. Ask for her if you can!

She took us through a quick tour of a local market on the way to My Son, as well as buying us a delicious breakfast.

The tour was relaxed and informative. Overall, this is a great way to see not only the temples at My Son, but also a beautiful way of experiencing some of the countryside... from the back of an original Army Jeep!

Amazing tour
The ride out to the countryside was stunning. Phi was such a great tour guide. She ensured that we had a fantastic time. She was so knowledgeable and had such a great sense of humour. Highly recommend this tour.

Sunrise at My Son
May 2018 • Family
We left our hotel in Hoi An before dawn to avoid the heat and enjoy My Son without crowds of tourists. Stopping at a local market for breakfast supplies the tour delivered everything promised. We were the second group to arrive at My Son and enjoyed looking at the ruins in solitude with our excellent guide. A delicious breakfast was cooked for us and we enjoyed a different countryside drive back to Hoi An. The Jeep is surprisingly comfortable. Would definitely recommend this tour.

An Interesting Trip
May 2018 • Couples
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 when we mentioned My Son they asked why, but we found My Son to be a fascinating place. They are ruins and there is no guides so you really need to visit as part of a tour, but our guide was informative and brought the history of the place alive. The whole purpose of this trip was to be there early before the crowds and that was the best thing to do as by the time we were leaving there must have been a dozen coaches of people arriving. It was also a little cooler (not a lot!!)

The other part of the trip was the fun of being a local. We went to a market, had coffee in a small cafe, had a Vietnamese breakfast (chicken noodle soup) and tried a cane sugar drink none of which would would have dont on our own It was this part of the trip that we enjoyed the most. The open topped jeeps were also fun, if a little fumey.

It is a very early start (5am) but overall a very enjoyable trip and well worth it.

So freaking cool!!!!
Just before dawn we go picked up in an old army jeep and taken out into the country side to see the My Son temples. Stopped for breakfast and coffee along the way. Our guide was super knowledgeable and friendly. Definitely get the early start to beat the heat and the crowds at My Son (we pretty much had the place to ourselves).

Unmissable! By dirt bike to My Son at sunrise
Jan 2018 • Family
Pretty as it is, we were disappointed by the tourist crowds of Hoi An and so booked a trip with Hoi An Motorbike Adventures to get us out of the city. With Phi as our guide and four excellent drivers, our family of four rode pillion to My Son. We left the hotel before sunrise, flew past a busting all-night fish market, stopped at a village market just as the sun began to break through and arrived at My Son in first light. Arriving so early, we had the site to ourselves, enriched by Phi's knowledgeable and quite philosophical commentary. The breakfast she prepared for us, made from ingredients bought at the village market, was the best meal we had during our time in Vietnam. But the highlight of the whole trip was the ride home through country lanes - sights we would never have seen if we were on our own. Our kids, aged 12 and 16, agree that it was far and away the best day of our holiday. We can't recommend the company or the experience highly enough. THANK YOU!

Great experience!
Jan 2018 • Friends
We were picked up at our hotel early in the morning, slightly before sunrise. We drove for a bit and stopped at a small local market where our guide, Phi, took us through and showed us and explained to us all the different things that were sold here. This was a great experience to see a market where local food where both prepeared and sold, we would not have found this place ourselves. After the market we drove to My Son, and were the first ones there. My Son was a great experience, and Phi told us about the temple and the other buildings, and had good answers to all our questions. We watched everything and we were all alone. After we had seen everything, we had a real Vietnamese breakfast with things bought from the market. It was very tasty, and fun to eat local food while watching hundreds of people walking up to My Son, where we had been all alone just an hour before. Afterwards we took a sightseeing tour through the contryside.
We had a great experience, and we were pleasantly suprised at every step of our journey.
