Take a scenic ride to an ancient temple city
Discover the ancient archaeological site of My Son on this bike tour from Hoi An. Once the religious and political capital of the Champa Kingdom, which thrived between the 4th and 13th centuries, a guided tour of My Son offers an immersive encounter with Vietnam's rich cultural heritage.
Your family-friendly day tour begins in the city of Hoi An before passing through the tranquil scenery of the surrounding countryside. After a stop for a snack, you'll park your bike to board the electric shuttle to My Son, where you'll take a tour to discover the significance of this ruined city. You'll round off the bicycle tour with a drive back to town and a stop en route for a traditional Vietnamese lunch.
Meander through the charming and tranquil alleyways of Hoi An’s old town and listen as your guide points out significant sites such as the enclosed Japanese Bridge and the old merchant houses, standing as a testament to the city's history as a major port city between the 15th and 19th centuries.
Ride a bridge over the Thu Bôn River and begin pedaling along scenic rural pathways accessible only to bikes and motorbikes. This is a sure sign you've arrived in rural Vietnam - you’ll navigate through a network of shortcuts and hidden connections known only to locals with the help of your guide. This day tour's route takes you through small villages, passing by family farms and picturesque rice fields, allowing you to get a true sense of the authentic agricultural lifestyle of those who work this incredible land.
Take a short rest stop to enjoy some fresh fruit and a cup of local coffee or tea before boarding an electric shuttle for a short transfer to the true highlight of this guided tour: the breathtaking UNESCO World Heritage site of My Son.
Dating from the same period as Angkor Wat's earliest parts, between the 4th and 13th centuries, My Son is a temple city constructed by the Cham people. The Cham ruled over much of what is now modern-day Central and Southern Vietnam, and My Son served as the spiritual center of the kingdom.
Exploring the surviving site is a truly remarkable experience: half-ruined towers loom above temples decorated in stunning detail, dedicated to Hindu deities. Marvel at the detailed sculptures and bas-reliefs that adorn the red brick structures of this archaeological treasure trove, and listen as your guide explains the blend of Indian and Southeast Asian influences on this architecture. My Son means 'beautiful mountain' in the native language, and nestled amidst lush greenery and forested foothills, the serene surroundings add to the mystical atmosphere of this ancient site.
Once you've roamed the grounds and marveled at My Son's temples, you'll board a private van back to Hoi An, stopping midway en route for a simple, delicious lunch of local noodles. If your exploration of My Son has left you eager to discover more of Central Vietnam's captivating countryside, take the Hoi An Countryside Bike Tour to get an insight into the cottage industries and rural traditions of the local region.
