It’s about an hour drive from da nang and at the time of our visit in December, it’s raining so the area is flooded and some of the temples cannot be visited. The temples were built much earlier than Angkor Wat and Bagan. But the...More

World Heritage Site is worth the 1 hour trip- the museum before the tour gives you a great perspective on Indochina The ruins of the temple are under some restoration but still interesting in the current condition

We weren't sure that My Son would be worth it as we have limited time and had just seen Angkor Wat. However, we rented a scooter for the day (100k vnd + 70k fuel) and took off from Hoi An (90 min appr on scooter)....More

Very nice and good tour. Recommend to go there. We had a lot of rain so the sight was a little limited for us. Recommend to go when it is not raining.

We arrived early to avoid the expected large groups of tourists and fortunately we were able to see most of the Sanctuary before they started arriving. Read about the Sanctuary before your visit to get a better understanding of its location and its 1000 years...More

Is going to My Son sanctuary with a 3 year old kid worth it? (7 Replies)
Hi All, I plan to stay 3 nights in Hoi An, thus wondering if I want to do a day trip with my wife and 3 year old son to the My Son sanctuary. I a history lover and like to visit the architecture. Will the travel be tiring for a kid? How much we can book the tour with a hotel? We need a good transport and good guide. Thanks Bala

Response fromIsabel R|
Hi Bala, We booked with our hotel and cost 180,000 vnd for the option of going by bus returning by boat with lunch included, an English speaking guide and on a bus with about 30 other people. The entrance fee is an extra 150,000. The ruins are worth seeing although I wouldn't advise it for a 3 year old because of the extreme heat as it's an exposed area. There is a shop there for drinks and icecream but as adults we were very hot. The air con on the bus wasn't great either and it was a very...More

Self-Guiding Tour around Hoi An (8 Replies)
We will be staying in Hoi An for a 2 full days in June and we wanted to visit tourist spots such as My Son Sanctuary, Marble Mountains, Lady Buddha, Danang, Cam Thanh Rice paddies. We prefer to explore these spots on our own and at our own pace. Is it possible to visit these places just by Taxi and not via a tour company. Are there taxis readily available at these spots to take you to extra attraction? Or is it easer to get a private taxi for the whole day? What is the average cost? ...More

Cam Thanh, if you are good with cycling, you can borrow your hotel's bike (or rent your own bike) and ride there yourself . No need for tours, or taxis for that matter. Whereabouts are you staying?
