The Experience

If you're into history, visiting My Son is the ultimate melting pot of ancient Champa history mixed with the modern Remnants of the American war. My Son Sanctuary is the most important Hindu temple complexes in all of Southeast Asia built by the Champa Kingdom from the 2nd to 14th century in central Vietnam.

On two wheels, or four, we’ll head towards the beautiful countryside filled with paddies and river crossings to experience local life that you can only feel in person. History, religion, culture...and of course, FOOD, we've got you covered.

Detailed itinerary

7:00 AM for Motorcycle/ 7:30 AM for Private Car

We start early in the morning to enjoy the cool breeze in the town. We’ll visit local market to get some fresh fruits before taking a ferry across the river, giving you a lovely view of Hoi An from a distance. On the other side is Kim Bong village, known for boat building and carpentry. We'll also get a glimpse of how strawmats are made.

On the way to My Son, we will stop by a bronze casting village where the locals transform bullet shells into musical instruments. We will stop for a home-cook meal before continuing to My Son Sanctuary.

At the Sanctuary, we’ll witness these magnificent thousand year old Hindu temples that continues to puzzle researchers as to how they were able to survive the harsh weather in this region for such a long time. You will also learn more about Hinduism, which shaped the art and culture of the lost civilization for centuries. We'll arrive back at your accommodation around 4:00 - 5:00 PM.


Breakfast, drinks, entrance fee, and an awesome local lunch are included.


Although the private car option is available, we recommend taking the motorcycle option as we think it is the best way to experience our Vietnamese culture. On a bike, we can stop whenever and wherever you want. The freedom is incomparable to anything else you've ever experienced.

For those with back problems or family with elderly or young children, then we recommend the private car option. Although, we have had a courageous 6-year old having a blast, loving every bit of the adventure.

Please note that there is a 30% cancellation fee for any cancellation made less than 24 hours prior to the tour date since we have to book many services in advance. Otherwise, there is a 5% transaction fee for bookings that are canceled 24 hours prior to the departure in order to cover for transaction processing costs.

Decided to book a My Son tour on my own and ended up being joined by a lovely couple also from Aus. There were 3 of us and the 4 members of the Onetrip team. The entire day was amazing from start to finish. We got a glimpse into the lives of the locals, saw some beautiful country side, ate some delicious local food and ended the trip at the spectacular My Son Sanctuary. The Onetrip team are incredible - perfect combination of knowledge and banter. Loved every second of it. Thank you!

Our OneTrip tour was a highlight of nearly four weeks in Vietnam and Cambodia, thanks to wonderful guides Trang and Tri! They were both so warm and friendly, and my husband, daughter and I immediately felt comfortable in their company. The My Son temples were fascinating to visit and learn about, even more interesting thanks to all of the information and stories our guides shared. We had so many good conversations, and learned a lot from them as they kindly answered MANY questions we had about all sorts of topics!! The area is beautiful as well (although seeing bomb damage and bullet holes was of course sobering). Our stop at the bronze village was very special as well, visiting artisans that makes musical instruments from melted down bullets and grenades - literally making swords into plowshares. It was so interesting to watch the process of a gong being made! Also, we really appreciated that Tri made a huge effort beforehand to make sure that there was gluten-free food for my husband to eat for lunch - he really went above and beyond to accommodate my husband's medically necessary dietary restriction. All in all, a fabulous and memorable day… We highly recommend OneTrip tours!

We've traveled the world and the My Son motorbike tour was one of the best tours we've ever experienced! They do offer a car tour, but trusting their website's advice & reviews, we opted for the motorbike option which we'll never regret! Tri (also known as Coconut Tree) and Bin were outstanding guides who are passionate about their country, the people and the culture. They are quick-witted, easy-going and want nothing but the absolute best for their guests. We started the day with a stop at a pottery-making village and even got to form our own bowl. Next stop, after driving through beautiful rice farms, was at another small village. There, we stopped at a small family rice factory that makes rice products from their farm. We got to watch rice paper and noodles made fresh, then ended that stop with some tasty nibbles of rice paper. Our next adventure was crossing a narrow railroad bridge. Despite my fear of heights, Bin kept me calm and even encouraged me to breathe! After we stopped so Tri could climb a coconut tree to bring coconuts to our lunch hosts, we continued on to our next stop at another family home. They cooked a delicious meal, even accommodated my vegetarian requests. After a short rest in the hammocks, we continued on to the My Son Temple where the guys' love & knowledge of their country's history became very apparent. The ride back to HoiAn included a couple of "butt breaks" and some awesome photo opportunities. We hated for our day to end.Book their tours now!!
