These ruins date back to 7th and 13th century, they are set in a beautiful area and the like most old ruins they are a work in progress. It was a nice walk up to the ruins and was worth the trip. Yes it was very hot but that was the time of year we travelled there. If you are... More

We had a good tour guide which told us a lot about the history. The only bad thing was that it started raining very heavily and we couldn't go in somewhere. Also we had to move on because the next group was already behind us so we missed a lot at the end.

Being in Hoi An for 10 days we had ample time visit a lot of the recommended sights. My Son was about 1hr drive from Hoi An and it was HOT so bring a sweat towel. We wore singlets and shorts and was still over heating. Interesting ruins that date back to 8th century. A lot of destruction from war... More

We left in the dark having arranged a driver and it was well worth it as we got there at dawn and had Ma Song to ourselves. Small compared to Angkhor Wat ...very beautiful in the silence

Historic site in a beautiful scenery. Made very good accessible. We went early and had the site almost for ourselves. In summer time it can get pretty hot as the site is surrounded by hills, so no wind. Take sunscreen and mosquito repellent.

A friend recommended we visit the My Son ruins when in Hoi An. No one else seemed to want to go there, but we organised a tour from the hotel,and asked another couple if they'd like to come. We arrived by small mini van, got our tickets, 150,000 dong each and went inside. We then organised a tour guide for... More

We booked the tour through our honestay. Fist we were as small group to 10 people, which is still acceptable, but after arriving at the temple group size was like 30 or so with on guide plus all other tours happening to be there. So the place was crowded like hell. We decided to split from the group and walked... More

Really enjoyed this place. Very easy to do. We booked a private car for 2 for NZ$35 taking 1 hour and paid entry fee 150,000 vnd receiving ticket with free photo on. Very hot but normal. Small area and very easy to get about. Sadly not much information in English

We took a short tour to My Son and enjoyed the trip. Although relatively small compared to Angkor Wat, it was still interesting. Several craters created by American bombs during the war is visible. A pity that there is still so much restoration to be undertaken.

Despite the temperature in the upper 30's, we enjoyed and appreciated our half day visit to My Son. The transport within the complex reduced the walking required to experience the remaining ruins. Guides explained the ruins. It was humbling to appreciate that hostilities in recent decades have significantly reduced the number of structures present. We valued our visit to My... More
