The best way to get out to My Son and the ancient town ruins is by bike, instead of sitting in a car for several hours. This fantastic ride out to the temples goes through the countryside on back roads. This offers a rare insight into how the locals live now, as well as taking a step back in time by visiting the ancient temples.
This trip starts right from our office at 8:00 am. We ride right through the Old Quarter of Hoi An to a boat that takes us across the Thu Bon River to Cam Kim carpentry village. The boat ride is short (10 minutes) but very scenic with village life played out along the shores. At the carpentry village everything from wooden handicrafts, to the construction of massive wooden hull boats is undertaken.
From the village we head off on small village roads and meandering dirt footpaths. We ride through an endless series of small farms growing everything from sweet potatoes to peanuts. In between the villages and small farms that we pass through are wide open expanses of rice paddy fields painted in a dozen shades of green.
We will stop for lunch at a local restaurant that specializes in Hoi An style food, about a kilometer away from My Son Temple. It takes about 1.5 hours to visit temples, but people are encouraged to take their time and see things at their own pace. We use the vehicle to return to Hoi An and aim to try and arrive back by 3:00 or 4:00 pm. We finish the trip at our office, or can drop you off right at your hotel.
