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 AND SHARED MINI VAN

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.

If you choose the group tour option, you will get to go clam fishing instead of straw mat making. The minivan can not squeeze through the tiny village alleyways, however we've come up with a stop that is just as exciting.

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.


All-inclusive

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


Important

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.

We also have a minivan group tour option which can have up to 12 guests for a more social experience.

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.

had a great time! We were fetched from our hostel and wet to a restaurant for breakfast. Since we are both vegetarians, our guide took us to a vegetarian restaurant (mention any special requirements during booking). Afterwards, we went to a lantern workshop where we built our own vietnamese lantern, which realy was fun.We also visited a pottery workshop in hoi an and tried our best at making a pot.Befire going to my son sanctuary we had another meal at a local reataurant which offered very tasty food.My son was very impressive and there were not so many tourists as we had expected. During the whole day and also in my son our guide bryan told us a lot about vietnam culture and alao about the sanctuary.All in all: really recommended!


I had a wonderful time on the My Son Onetrip tour. Bryan picked me up from the hotel right on time, and thankfully he came prepared with rain gear for the motorcycle ride (unfortunately it rained most of the day). Food and drink stops were well placed and delicious throughout the day — make sure you try the noodles with crab meat for breakfast. Bryan’s knowledge of the local crafts people we visited was excellent, and he was able to answer all of my questions about the My Son temples. Don’t be reluctant to book the motorcycle option — the sights and sounds are amazing as you ride through the countryside. Bryan’s driving skills were top notch. Thanks, Bryan, for an excellent tour.


I had the most amazing trip of my life, thanks to Bryan for sure! It was not a lucky day for us as it rained the whole day. It started raining even before Bryan arrived to pick me up, but since I had only one day he made sure that we do this trip. He made sure in every possible way that I am comfortable and I can say 100% that this was the most amazing and adventurous trip of my life. Please do request and ask for Bryan if you are booking this trip. Thank you Onetrip and thank you so much, Bryan!!
