Overview
The unlabeled tower temples of the UNESCO World Heritage Site of My Son are as hard to interpret as they’re striking to see—one reason it pays to go with a guide. Another, of course, is to take the hassle (and the haggle!) out of transportation. History fans will love this intimate and informative tour of Vietnam’s ancient capital: It's limited to just eight people.

    My Son Sanctuary
    Stop: 90 minutes - Admission included
    40 kilometers to the West of Hoi An is My Son Sanctuary – Vietnam’s most important site of the ancient kingdom of Champa. Between the 4th and 13th century a unique culture which owed its spiritual origins to Indian Hinduism developed on the coast of then contemporary Vietnam. This is graphically illustrated by the remains of a series of impressive tower-temples located in a dramatic site that was the religious and political capital of the Champa Kingdom for most of its existence. Located in the heart of a beautiful valley and surrounded by high mountains ranges My Son was named a Cultural Heritage site by UNESCO in 1999. Originally built with wood, they 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.

This is a beautiful place; with similarities to Ankor Wat and Sukkothai. But get there on your own with a driver or cab and have them wait for you for the day. The tour with guide is too restrictive. You spend much of the time (more than advertised) waiting in town to fill up
