The Ancient Town of Hoi An and My Son Sanctuary

Day 1: The Ancient Town of Hoi An (L, G)

Arriving in Tien Sa Port, you’ll be greeted by our guide and driven to visit the remarkable Hindu statuary in the Cham Museum before leaving for Hoi An. After that, your guide will show the 400-year old Japanese Covered Bridge, the Phuc Kien Assembly Halls…in the Ancient Town of Hoi An. After lunch in one of many good restaurants offering a variety of cuisines and price levels, you will be free for shopping for silk. You can have your clothes tailor-made within a day or two at reasonable cost. After that, you will be driven back to the cruise (or your hotel) for your overnight accommodation.

Day 2: My Son and Cham Old Kingdom (L, G)

Pick up at the cruise in the morning, you will be driven to visit the World Heritage ‘My Son Sanctuary’. Your guide will show you the remains of the remarkable towers constructed by the Cham builders, many centuries ago – their origins and purpose have yet to be fully explained. Although, their towers were badly bombed in the American war, but are still impressive, as is its remote valley setting. The complex is set in a quiet, richly forested area bisected by a clear stream. However, the tree cover is not complete and the valley acts as suntrap, so good sun protection is important. In the late afternoon, you’ll be driven back to Tien Sa Port for your cruising. Tour ends.
