Meet a driver at your hotel in the Hoi An Ancient Town area for 8am departure, or travel to a centrally-located departure point to board a coach for My Son Sanctuary. You’ll have great views of the Hoi An river, Cham Islands, and the mountains on the 2-hour trip to My Son, with a pause to see the market at a rural fishing village.
Upon arrival at My Son, watch a Vietnamese dance performance, then follow a guide into the Cham ruins, walking a short path edged with lush jungle. My Son Sanctuary thrived from the 4th to the 13th centuries, with Hindu temples and intricate religious monuments, and it's a remarkable place to learn about the unique Champa culture.
You’ll have two hours to explore My Son Sanctuary before the return trip to Hoi An, the departure point for a leisurely lunch cruise down the Thu Bon River. Board the boat at the Nguyen Hoang dock, then enjoy two hours on the water with a meal served on deck, passing a fishing village, weaving village, carpentry village, and Cam Thanh, a village surrounded by coconut palms.
This full-day tour concludes at the centrally-located Nguyen Hoang dock, close to the key landmarks in Hoi An Ancient Town.
