The most common way to visit My Son is via organized tour from Hoi An. Tours are also available from Danang.
There are two basic types of tours available:
– Sunrise tours, which arrive at the park very early, when the ticket office first opens at 6:30. These tours depart Hoi An at 5:30 and usually include fewer people than the regular tours.
– Regular tours, which begin arriving after 8:00 in the morning. Regular tours will depart by 14:00.
Some tour operators also provide the option of returning to Hoi An by boat. After leaving the park by bus, visitors transfer to a boat for their return to Hoi An.
If you want joining a boat for your return, please book tour “My Son Jeep and Boat” or “My Son car and boat”.
What should I wear/bring to visit My Son?
We recommend wearing comfortable clothing and closed toed shoes (such as tennis shoes) for most tours. Sandals and other open toe or heel shoes are not recommended. For Jeep Tours, we suggest you wear a hat and sunglasses and apply sunscreen before your tour.
You definitely should not wear long sleeves if you go there in summer, because there is quite a lot of walking to do, and it gets really hot.
You should bring water as it gets seriously hot in the My Son sanctuary! There is a little shop on site selling gifts, ice creams and drinks and is perfect for a short stop.
Don’t forget your camera or video camera – the photo opportunities are amazing!
Will there be other people in the vehicle with my party?
A private tour is run exclusively for you, your own families or friends with no other strangers. You may choose an ideal private tour on our website. Alternatively, we can customize an itinerary in line with your specific wishes.
What time would be appropriate to arrive there by before the masses of tourists?/Is it better to visit My Son in the morning or the afternoon?
Leave either very early in the morning, or around lunchtime.
If you visit early enough in the morning there’s a free show of Cham music and dancing at 9.30am. The trip there takes an hour from Hoi An. If you go early enough to see the dancing show you should be back in Hoi An by lunchtime.
And it is best to visit in the late afternoon when the tour groups have departed.
The park is open from 6:30 to 17:00, but the later afternoon hours are calmer and not too hot.
If you do not like the crowded, you should book tour “ Sunrise tour to My Son sanctuary” on our website. Tour starts at 5:30 a.m through the countryside and local villages, and returns hotel at 11:00 a.m.
Will you need to buy an additional ticket for the Apsara dance show?
Free show on ticket included.
They have their timetable for the Apsara dance show, 2 shows in the morning at 9.30am and 10.30am and a show in the afternoon at 14.30PM. Just walk to the site you will see their show’s schedule. You don’t have to wait…if it takes long for the next show, walk to visit the temples then come back for show.

There’s no accommodation in My Son. The nearest hotel is about 2 km down the road from the ticket office. Most visitors day-trip from Hoi An, Da Nang, or even Hue.
