A visit to the My Son Sanctuary is an experience that shouldn't be missed while visiting the beautiful city of Hoi An. This halfday trip features a visit to the capital and religious centre of the former Champa Kingdom, My Son, which has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage site.

It is also believed that this site could have been used as a place of burial for Cham monarchs.
