Take a private tour by air-conditioned minivan to the west of Da Nang city, the jungle of a sanctuary located not very far from Hoi An.
Honorably recognized as a World Heritage Site in 1999, My Son Sanctuary is captivating in various cultural values. Therefore, it is extremely useful and meaningful for those interested in Southeast Asian culture, which owes its core to ancient Cham culture. Although time and war have destroyed some towers, the remaining sculptural and architectural remnants still reflect the style and history of the art of the Cham people. Their masterpieces mark a glorious time for the architecture and culture of the Cham, as well as of Southeast Asia.
Board your bus and leave your hotel in the afternoon and head out to My Son Sanctuary.
Upon arrival to the entrance, take a short break and take a walk through the lovely bridge before getting on buggie and drive in 10 minutes to the gate and walk into the site.
At 2:30pm there will be a traditional Cham dance show just next to the sanctuary. Here you can watch and enjoy 3 different types of dance by the real Champa artist. You will clap your hands to the beat for the entirety of the performance. After explaining about the sanctuary's layout, the tour guide will take you to the site and take you to sites B and C.
Visit the ancient temples and towers built by Champa Kingdom that dates back to the 3rd century and has been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Set in a lovely valley surrounded by mountain peaks, the temples that were rebuilt in the 7th-century became a sanctuary of Hinduism. You will also see some temples that were restored with special cooperation from the Italian and German governments. When the sun hits the ruins just right, you'll know it is your time to shoot some great photos. Say your greetings to the various deity statues and leave the site to head back to your hotel in Da Nang.
