The tour starts with a pick up from your hotel in Hoi An. The verhicle will drive you 70 km west of Hoi An, to the ancient temple complex of My Son.
When arrive in My Son, you will get a snack and plenty of time to explore this UNESCO World Heritage Site. Besides the temple complex, you can also visit the Champa museum.
It is one of the most impressive sights in the region and since 1999 also UNESCO World Heritage. Surrounded by hills, nestled in a lush valley and located in the shadow of the impressive Mount Hon Quap, the ruins of the temple complex built between the 4th and 12th centuries appear to come from an oriental fairy tale.
The Cham people originally lived in the Champa kingdom in south central Vietnam, which was eventually enlisted by the Vietnamese. My Son became the religious and cultural center, under the reign of King Bhadravarman at the end of the fourth century. It was occupied until the 13th century, which is the longest occupation period for any city in the Mekong region. The temples are dedicated to the Hinduod Shiva, which is also known as Bhadresvara.
After your visit, you will be brought back to your hotel in Hoi An.
