I joined the sunrise tour to My Son. Unfortunately it's the raining season (Oct - Dec), i can't see the sunrise and just visiting those temples and buildings. Morning is a good time for visiting, as my tour guide said there are many tourist in the afternoon. Those buildings looks like the Angkor Wat, but totally different history and story... More

Very interesting excavations done here. Many temples still to bring to daylight. A nice dance and musical performance in the morning.

If you have enough time in hoi an and you are so free its nice to visit my son sanctuary. There are many tours from 7 to 12$ to only reach there and we need to buy the ticket for around 6$. If you can ride a bike there is no need to buy a tour and can reach there... More

This is a wonderful UNESCO World Heritage site with remains of Hindu temples. The first temple was built around 200AD. It was heavily bombed during the Vietnam war but still a worthwhile trip to do. I do however recommend that you have your own car, driver and guide rather being in a bus load of tourists who only get a... More

A really interesting 1/2 day tour from Hoi An we arrived at 8am and so glad we did because as we were leaving it was heaving with visitors and this site deserves full attention our guide Eric was so good at explaining the history and how they are now beginning albeit slowly to restore the ruins. It is a lovely... More

Bought a group of school students here. Very safe place to let them loose for a little exploration. Didn't feel we needed a guide but if we wanted more info we could get it from available brochure. Be prepared for a little walking but an electric transit vehicle takes you to the start. Ticket was 150,000 VND.

When we arrived we were the first car. So initially we had the place to ourselves. You take a large golf cart type vehicle to get to the main temple site. It rained but it is worth the time to get here rain or shine. Very serene place with tons of historical value. Also saw a great show/performance.

We visited My Son with Mr Turtle. We very much enjoyed the tour. Mr Turtle was very knowledgable and brought a great energy to the trip. My Son is worth the visit, it is beautifully located. Would recommend to visit with a guide, so that you can learn the story behind the complex.

Enjoyed walking around the ruins. It was interesting to see how the original parts of the temples where aging better than the bricks used in the restoration.

I was told before visiting that this is a site well worth visiting, but that if I'd been to Angkor Wat, not to compare. I hadn't, so I couldn't and didn't. Less than an hour from Hoi An, My Son is an absolute must do, there is no question. On arriving at the historic site our guide purchased our tickets,... More
