This was one of the largest cluster of Hindu temples in indochina. A must visit, the My Son is as old as 4th century AD dedicated to Lord Shiva by the kings of Champa. While there are a couple of structures that is intact to some extent, most of the temples were destroyed by US bombings during the Vietnam war.... More

My Son (pronouned mee son) was a part of our organised tour. It is about an hours drive from HoiAn. The road is narrow and i wondered what would happen if another car came towards us. There are good clean rest rooms near the entrance, which is always a bonus. We then had to walk about 10 to 15 minutes... More

It was incredibly hot when I was there, but worth it to see ancient temple ruins. Plan for about two to three hours to see everything with some moderate (mostly level) walking in between.

Overall interesting tour. As with most Vietnam tours there are some safety issues that need to be addressed. Some bridges that are over 2m drops have no balustrading causing possible falls for unaware children. Lighting inside monument is lacking. My wife had a centipede (20cm) crawl up her leg. As we could not see that there was one present.

We took a group tour from our hotel it cost 15 U.S. Including entry fee. Plus 6 for a boat ride back to Hoi an. Very relaxing place very glad we didn't do the private tour all it would of added was our own car... The bus wasn't that un comfortable. Tour guides talked lots but they all said the... More

From my point of view I thought My Son was great. The only negative for us was the tour providers didn't give us enough water. A 600 ml bottle of water in 36 degrees will last me a single drink. Overall though very interesting and the oldest place I have seen in my life...well if you don't count the Mother... More

If you have a day to kill so maybe go visit my son. If not, don't bother to come. The structures aren't preserve very good, and most of them ruined. The bus to there was very uncomfortable too.

This would have once been a must see but time and war have taken their toll. Not much left to see, but still of interest. We found the drive from Da Nang more interesting than My Son as we got to see the small villages and farmlands along the way. If you only have a few days in the area... More

Having visited Angkor Wat, My Son was a little underwhelming. Having said that we selected a tour Barri Ann Travel package which involved a bus to the sanctuary, a bus half way back, and a boat the rest of the way. It was quite economical and worked quite well. We found My Son interesting but very hot. We wouldn't have... More
