My Son Private Tour Itinerary:
Duration: half day
Highlights: Hindu temples – traditional dancing show – rice paper making factory
First, in the morning we will come and pick you up at the hotel and we start My Son private tour. Thus, we will drive 60km southwest of Hoi An in private car with English guide and driver to visit religious center of the former Champa Kingdom – My Son. It is a designated UNESCO World Heritage site on Dec 4th, 1999. Amazingly, the site is located in a lush green valley with dozens of red brick towers and sanctuaries built between the 7th and 13th centuries. In the old days, the Cham people came here to present offerings to Hindu gods of Shiva, Vishnu and Brahma and so on.
On arrival in My Son, we will stroll around the site to admire very old Hindu temples as well as amazing talent of Cham people in building temples. The Cham people built these Hindu temples years and years ago but despite severe weather, they still stand imposingly with time. Especially, the material that the Cham people took to glue bricks and built the temples in My Son holy land is still mysterious. Though the war devastated My Son a lot but Vietnamese people are day by day trying to restore it. Today, there are still 20 temples and towers available for you to visit in main groups of B, C, D and ruins of G, E, F. Besides, you also take a chance to enjoy traditional Champa dance show in the theatre nearby. You can have a deep insight into Cham culture and know how their life is by watching the show.
Then on the way back to Hoi An, we will visit a rice paper – making factory, it is a real chance for you to have a deep insight into daily life of Vietnamese people. Besides, we can have a talk with the owner to know how they live and make rice noodles using rice husk as fume to burn. And how they make rice crackers and “Pho” as well.
Eventually, we take you back to the hotel and then our My Son Sanctuary Private Tour will finish here. We would like to express our thank and wish you all the best.
