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.

We booked a tour with One Trip spontaneously, and loved every minute of it. Our guide, Han, was not just knowledgeable but was also terrifically friendly and fun too. The “tour group” was just the two of us so no getting lost in a large group of tourists, and you spend a lot of time off the beaten track, seeing parts of Hoi An and Vietnam that you wouldn’t normally see. Loved every minute.


Our guides, Bin and Trang, were super knowledgeable and engaging. We felt like we learnt a lot about the local culture with them and were also able to joke with them like friends. They were very professional, organized and enthusiastic throughout the entire day even when the weather was unbearably hot in the afternoon. We really admire their dedication to creating a positive, genuine and unforgettable experience for us. This was our first time riding on the back of motorbikes and we were a little worried because we grew up learning the dangers of riding motorbikes. That concern soon went away in the first leg of the trip. The routes we took felt safe and we felt safe on the back of the bike with Bin and Trang as drivers. The experience was authentic. We visited the homes of local villagers, enjoyed the backroad scenery en route to Mỹ Sơn and chilled at cafes by the road. Mỹ Sơn was interesting for its significance in the representation of architecture, history and religion. Awesome day we’ve had with the OneTrip team!


This is the best thing that our family has done in Vietnam. The guides were top rate so friendly and helpful plus excellent riders to boot.We did the My Son tour and loved every minute getting to see more of the country side.Highly recommended 5 star from me.
