What You'll Do
Explore Hoi An’s diverse countryside on your way to Hoi An’s My Son sanctuary. You’ll ride quiet lanes to the UNESCO World-Heritage site.
This is a one-way ride to My Son, mainly on back alleyways, flat tracks and small roads – there are no hills so anyone who can reasonably ride a bike can do this tour. There are a few small sections on dirt trails where beginner riders will have to show some care. Depending on the season, you may pass rice, corn and even sunflower fields as you explore a very different landscape to that of the city.
You’ll hardly see any four-wheeled vehicles as you sneak through a network of shortcuts and connections that only locals would know. Your destination, My Son is an incredible site of ancient ruins – providing an exciting glimpse into Vietnam’s past.
Your tour concludes with a shuttle back to Hoi An completing a fun, informative ½ day excursion.

This is your best opportunity to glimpse authentic Vietnamese life.
My Son Ruins
My Son Ruins
After replenishing your energy with a healthy snack of fresh fruit and local coffee or tea, it is a short transfer to the entrance to this UNESCO World Heritage site. New regulations require you park your bikes and board electric shuttle vans to the main ruins.
The temples and towers of My Son were built by the Cham people, initially Hindu and later of Muslim faiths. The Cham Kingdom, once dominant in the region, was eventually conquered by the Vietnamese and Khmer. Descendants of the original tribes are now scattered throughout the region, mostly along inland waterways.
