WHY THIS TOUR?

Where UNESCO meets UNESCO. The protection of World Heritage Sites around the globe has taken a primary position in preserving the ancient landmarks of times past.

TRAIL ITINERARY

Experience My Son and Hoi An

08:00 - 17:00

Welcomed by your English-speaking guide for the day, you will leave your hotel right after breakfast and head towards My Son, the once-powerful, but now the extinct, Champa Kingdom and one of the most outstanding Hindu temple complexes in South East Asia.

Dating back to the 4th century, the remains of this temple complex are situated in the mountainous district of Duy Xuyen, also where the source of the Thu Bon River resides – this river runs like an aorta through central Vietnam and formed the main gateway that made our afternoon visit such an important trading port for merchants. The construction of My Son has taken close to 10 centuries, and the design of the temple reflects the devotion to the main Hindu gods. Aside from its religious purpose, the temple and region show clear examples of the ingenuity of the Cham people and their engineering skills in this tough and rugged environment. Guests can walk freely among the assigned paths to capture every angle of the 70 classical monuments at My Son.

Lunch is included at a local restaurant before we head into Hoi An for a leisurely afternoon, together with your guide. Blessed with being ‘cut off’ from the wars that have put a stamp on the Vietnamese history, much of the old houses and temples have remained intact. In addition to its excellent and compact design, Hoi An is an absolute jewel for walking tours along with its well-preserved houses.

As you gently feast your eyes on former warehouses and residents of influential people during its thriving trading eras, you will pass landmarks such as old Chinese communal houses, the 400+-year-old Japanese bridge, and the local wet market. You’ll love the Thu Bon riverside ambience where terraces form the perfect base to see visitors and residents pass by. At around 5 pm, you will be dropped off back at your hotel after a full day of UNESCO magnificence.
