Lovely UNESCO World Heritage Site

I like ticking off as many UNESCO WH Sites as possible. I was in Hoi An, had 2 days off, and realised this was close, about an hour by car. So I booked a trip. It's a lovely... read more

Really worth a visit here. We took a day excursion booked at an agency in Hoi An. Well organised, designed for visitors to walk round in one direction. When you arrive, everyone takes electric buggies to the start. I would advise decent footwear and an umbrella or raincoat. İt was sunny in Hoi An when we left, but the weather... More

If you expect beautiful temples then you will be dissapointed. There is a lot of sad history here with the war damaging a lot of the temples. If you want to see great temples go to Angor Wat or anywhere in India really.

Whilst in Hoi An we visited My Son Sanctuary, a Unesco Heritage site. Here we saw the remains of the Hindu Temple Towers which is a symbol of Champa Art. Although we have to take a long walk before reaching the site, the journey was a pleasant one as there was plenty of shade along the way. En route, we... More

Unfortunately the day wer visited it poured with rain making the walkways muddy and slippy. The temples are OK but just a few, the museum at the entrance was interesting and the dance performance was good. Worth a visit but don't expect too much and take good shoes, not flip flops

We joined a private tour with some cruisecritic friends when we called for Da Nang. My Son is a little out of the way from the usual tourist tracks but we are suckers of ruins so we were determined to get there. It was well worth the time and effort even in the rain. This heritage site of Champa people... More

It's a lovely site, in the middle of nowhere. Unfortunately, a big part got bombed by the Americans during the war because the Vietcong hid... More

We took a private tour with Exo Travel and guide Nhieu to this wonderfully atmospheric spot in peaceful jungle surrounded by mountains. It was busy in the morning with lots of tour groups coinciding with the Cham dance show but we were able to modify the order of the visit to escape the worst and there were very few people... More

A visit to these mostly ruins couples nicely on a tour to Hoi An City. My partner and I hired a private driver on the drive to both places, well worth it. My Son it the temple community of the kingdom of Champapura, Sanskit for City of the Champa People, which provides an obvious clue about the origins of this... More

Reminiscent of other ruins around the world My Son is set in a very developed and organized site. It's historical significance is probably worth the visit. We booked a private car through the hotel which made it an easy trip.

With the continuous construction from the 4th century to the middle of the 13th century, the tower-temples in My Son built by the ruling kings are the orthodox structures of the country, so it can be said that the tower-temples are the places which focus on expressing what is most typical and charming of the contemporary art architecture with the...
