Transferred from your hotel in the morning, it’s time to bust in UNESCO world cultural heritage site My Son Sanctuary, the abandoned and partially ruined Indian Hinduism temples during Champa reign located 50 kilometers southwest of Hoi An. At the time being, My Son was considered a significant religious and cultural centre.
As we draw closer to My Son (Beautiful Mountains), the road becomes more and more daring and adventurous. Upon arriving at My Son, you’ll have to take a 500m walk through lush hillsides, trees and brush before emerging into the main site. Here you will have a chance to eyewitness over 70 classic Cham monuments dating from the 7th - 13th Centuries. While you wander around the historical Cat's Tooth Mountain, your guide will offer full commentary on the Cham heritage of My Son.
After lunch, a half-day walking tour around the ancient town of Hoi An will make a great idea. You will be guided through the smallest alleys and introduced to some of the most ancient buildings in town.
Cut off by destroyed rail lines and a silted river, the unique trading town of Hoi An was left untouched by war. Hoi An’s also famous for its multicultural architecture - Japanese, French, Chinese, Indian, as well as beautifully preserved ancient houses. Cars are not allowed in Hoi An, making it an incredibly unique pedestrian village.
You will also love to take a look at the Chinese communal house and Japanese Covered Bridge, one of the symbols of Hoi An first constructed in the 1590s. While it’s free to access this bridge, you may not want to get a ticket to see a small and unimpressive temple on the bridge’s northern side. Stop for a little art shopping at some of the town’s galleries before seeing how local residents raise silkworms and produce silk for Hoi An's developing textile industry.
After this afternoon walking tour, you’ll be transferred back to the hotel.
