Description

Be picked up from your hotel in Hoi An, early in the morning and be whisked off through the peace and quiet of the surrounding countryside. After about an hour of driving through rural Vietnam, reach the historic complex of My Son.  My Son is one of Vietnam’s most important heritage sites, providing a unique insight into the lives of the Cham people who lived here over a thousand years ago. Skip the line and explore this atmospheric architectural ensemble before the tourist hordes arrive. Learn about the original building techniques applied during construction and the traditional materials that were used, such as timber, brick, and stone. Look out for the numerous craters that were left here by American bombs from the war in the 1960s and 70s. After exploring the ruins, stop off for an unforgettable experience to watch the Apsara dance beside the historic temples. The performers will give a dance demonstration to the sounds of panpipes and drums, wearing colorful traditional costumes and cone-shaped hats. On the way back to Hoi An, stop at a rice paper workshop to test your culinary skills and learn how to make a delicious local snack. Afterward, sit back and enjoy your creations with a cup of Vietnamese coffee and engage in a friendly chat with our hosts about the rural way of life here. To finish the tour,  head back into Hoi An and be dropped off at your hotel or perhaps at a local restaurant for lunch, whichever you prefer. Don’t forget to ask your local guide for hints and tips on how to get the most out of your stay in Hoi An.
