My Son Sanctuary Tour From Hoi An or Da Nang With Local Guide
This half-day experience focuses on the My Son Sanctuary, a Unesco world heritage site. It played the role as a Hindu holy land of the entire Champa Kingdom for 900 years. Although abandoned for centuries, it’s still the best group of monuments the now-disappeared state ever made. There were around 70 temples in its golden age but now only 20 standing. All are placed in the Valley of Legend, featuring a stream flowing through and surrounded by wooded hills. Secrets behind how the Chams constructed them are undiscovered yet. International and Vietnamese conservationists have given efforts to save the survivals.
