My Son is tiny compared to Angkor Wat so you need to put this into perspective before you visit. Buses stop in a car park (avoid the dreadful toilets!), then you walk for a few minutes to get into golf buggies which drive you up to the site ruins. You can see all of it within an hour but it...

A shame that previous reviewers had not researched before they went and knew what to expect, we knew that the site was not extensive and a distance from Hoi An, but went for the historic interest. Amazing that what remains of temple buildings are there after more than a thousand years. It has now been recognised as a World Heritage... More

Very small compound and nothing much to see, especially if you've been to the Angkor Wat in Cambodia. But a good place to pass the time if you've been to the beach and Ancient Town

Since the Americans bombed most of it, there is not much to see but it is the oldest temple complex (what's left) in Southeast Asia. It is the spiritual enter of the Cham empire a UNESCO site.

We visited My Son with Sinh Tourist Hoi An, we were picked up at the hotel and dropped at Hoi An ancient town. We have been to Borobudur, Angkor Wat and Bagan (found out and they are all related). It was hot and humid day in My Son, from parking location had to walk about 15 mins to electric car... More

If you're interested in the history of Vietnam, this will be well worth a visit. Though, the trip there is a lot of effort for what there is on offer. Having been to Angkor Wat a few years ago, it was disappointing . . . but I feel it worth pressing on the fact that it is important to Vietnamese... More

It is highly recommended to firstly get a guide to show you round and to go early in the morning because its cooler and not very busy. After 9am coach loads of tourists start arriving and the hordes descend on the site.

This was very interesting the information that we received and to see the temple ruins, but I expected more. Pity the places were so badly damaged with war, show was good. I would recommend if you have time

There is transportation for a large part of the distance from the ticketing office to the site making it much easier to view the site. The site itself is only mildly interesting. I accept that this was not helped by our guide who seemed to make stuff up if he didn't know. However even if I put that aside the... More
