A UNESCO World Heritage site, the My Son Ruins are a cluster of Hindu temples constructed sometime between the 4th and 14th centuries. They are now abandoned and unused, so you won’t see any active worshipping or religious visitors to the site.
Travel tips for the My Son Ruins
Due to war, many of the historical temples were partially destroyed or are currently being restored. There’s scaffolding in some of the areas that make parts of the ruins not as postcard-friendly. There are great views of the local mountains in this area. It won’t take you more than a few hours to tour the whole site. It’s also worth getting here as early in the morning as possible. The crowds will build up after the afternoon and the heat can get overwhelming as there is limited shaded areas in the ruins. Located outside of Hoi An and Da Nang, the My Son ruins are accessible by car only one or two hours from the main cities of Central Vietnam.
