My Son Ruins

My Son Ruins, Vietnam

Leaving your hotel early in the morning, travel for two hours along a rough road to a point close to the My Son ruins. My Son is Vietnam’s most important Cham site.

The Cham civilization dominated the area that is now south Vietnam for many centuries before being crushed by the Vietnamese. My Son was once the intellectual and religious center and may have also served as a burial place for Cham monarchs.

The monuments are set in a verdant valley surrounded by hills and overlooked by Cat’s Tooth Mountain. Streams run between the structures and through the nearby coffee plantations.

Afterwards you return to Hoi An for lunch.
