My Son Sanctuary Sunrise or Sunset Tour is a great chance to enjoy the mysterious and hidden charm of the tower temples of the Champa Kingdom. You will have the opportunity to admire the Apsara dance, listen to the beautiful stories of the kingdoms of Vietnam and hunt some fabulous photos at sunrise.
My Son Sanctuary was the worshipping area of the Champa Kingdom from the 4th century to the 13th century. Each king was ordered to build a cluster of temples when they came to the throne to show their respect to the God Shiva.
In 1999 My Son Sanctuary was recognized by the UNESCO World Heritage. It is considered one of the leading centres of Hinduism in Southeast Asia and is the only heritage of its kind in Vietnam.
To start the My Son Sanctuary Sunrise or Sunset Tour you should be ready at your hotel lobby at 5:00 am or 2.30 pm. Our local guide and driver will pick you up at your hotel in Hoi An/Da Nang.
The distance is about 45km from Hoi An to My Son so it will take around 1 hour to get to My Son Sanctuary. On the way we will stop at the Hoi An fish market. Your local guide will give you some interesting information about their daily life, culture and customs. There is NO STOP at the Fishmarket on the Sunset Tour
We arrive at My Son Sanctuary and this is the perfect time to enjoy the sunrise or sunset. As you know My Son Holy Land nowadays is just a ruined temple area but still attracts many tourists by its mysterious beauty and secret architecture.
On the My Son Sunrise or Sunset Tour your knowledgeable guide will explain the typical setting of a temple cluster, what special bricks were used, what kind of mortar was used to stick them together and how they worship and make offerings to God in the main temple. You will get the opportunity to admire the Apsara, a royal dance of the Champa Kingdom which was done to submit to God and their kings.
This is an ideal time to enjoy the beauty of the sunrise/sunset in the Holy Land and various chances to capture beautiful photos. Our travel agent highly recommends the My Son Sunrise/Sunset Tour because you will thoroughly enjoy My Son Sanctuary without the heat of central Vietnam, skip the crowd of tourists and take lovely photos without “photo bombs.”
