Tour Itinerary

Our guide will pick you up at your hotel and depart to My Son, one of the most important sites of the ancient kingdom of Champa. Located in the heart of a beautiful valley and surrounded by high mountains ranges, My Son is one of the most stunning sights to see in Central Vietnam and only around 80 kilometers from Da Nang city. Whilst excavating My Son, letters found revealed that this complex has been used for offerings and worship of the Hindu god since the 4th century. In 1999, UNESCO declared My Son a Unesco World Heritage Site. The My Son Sanctuary is a remarkable architectural ensemble that developed over a period of ten centuries. It presents a vivid picture of spiritual and political life in an important phase of the history of South-East Asia.  Originally built with wood, the temples in My Son 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.

The weather was scorching hot on the day, but the transfers were comfortable in an air conditioned van. The guide was english speaking and very resourceful. She gave a lot of information on the way and also at the site. The historical site itself was very beautiful, with a theatrical show to top it off. We were picked and dropped off from/to our hotel in DaNang on time. Less

Pick up was prompt and before time.

We had an half day tour at My Son. Pick up service at our hotel was excellent. Our amazing tour guide Viet gave us a fantastic tour and gave us intresting facts, not only about the Cham people and culture/history/religions, but also about Vietnam. Last but not least we also got the opportunity to watch the Cham-show as a perfect ending of the tour. We had an amazing time on this tour and we would gladly recomend this!! Less

C'était bien de découvrir une autre facette du Vietnam, une autre culture, plus ancienne et à l'architecture différente. Le site que l'on peut visiter n'est pas très grand mais il donne un aperçu. J'ai aussi apprécié le spectacle danse et musique, qui ajoute à l'expérience. Le guide avait beaucoup d'éléments historiques intéressants à donner (que son fort accent rendait un peu difficile à saisir, par moments). Il fait très (très) chaud et humide alors je suggère la plage-horaire du matin. Aussi, il y a moins de touristes à ce moment de la journée. Less
