Begin your full-day tour when your guide picks you up at your Hoi An or Danang hotel, then settle into your comfortable air-conditioned minivan for a scenic 30-mile (50-km) drive to My Son.
The My Son temple complex contains the most important monuments of the Champa Kingdom, which flourished in coastal Vietnam from the 4th to 13th centuries. My Son was the religious and intellectual center kingdom and had approximately 70 structures at its zenith. About 20 structures remain, some well-preserved while others have tumbled down. Stroll at a leisurely pace with your guide to take in the magnificent site and learn about My Son's architectural styles, cultural significance and history, which includes influences from India. Enjoy plenty of stops for photo ops before heading to Hoi An for the afternoon.
Upon your arrival in Hoi An, stop into a local restaurant for a tasty Vietnamese lunch. Afterward, set off with your guide to explore the Ancient Town of Hoi An on foot. The World Heritage-listed Ancient Town got its start as a port more than 2,000 years ago. Chinese, Hindu and Arab influences can be detected in the architecture, cuisine and rich culture. Stroll along the colorful pedestrian-only streets to see highlights such as the Japanese Covered Bridge, historic wooden merchant homes, a bustling food market and small shops that carry clothing, silk, antiques, handicrafts and more.
After your guided walking tour of Hoi An Ancient Town, your full-day tour ends with hotel drop-off in Hoi An or Danang.
