What You Can Expect

Depart by minivan from your hotel in the morning or afternoon, depending on which option you select upon booking. Located in the heart of a beautiful valley and surrounded by high mountains that feed the Thu Bon River, My Son Sanctuary was developed over a period of 10 centuries.

When you reach the UNESCO World Heritage site, follow your guide on a walking tour around the impressive tower-temples — remains of the political and religious capital of the Champa Kingdom. Admire the structures, which were originally built with wood, then restored in the 7th century with locally made brick after the temples were completely destroyed by fire one century earlier.

By the 13th century, more than 70 similar temples had been built, establishing My Son as a sanctuary of Hinduism in the Champa Kingdom. As you marvel at sandstone bas-reliefs depicting scenes from Hindu mythology, learn about the My Son civilization’s devotion to Hindu deities like Krishna, Vishnu and Shiva.

After exploring the delights of My Son Sanctuary with fascinating commentary from your guide, head back to Hoi An, where you’ll be dropped off at your hotel.
