Superb private shore excursion in Hoi An, Vietnam, to the ruins of the Champa Kingdom
Pick up from your Hoi An hotel by private car and local guide and drive around 25 miles southwest to My Son, the ‘Holy Land’ of the Champa Kingdom. This was the capital of central Vietnam a thousand years ago and its ornately decorated terracotta temples and towers are poignant yet beautiful remnants of an ancient civilisation – nowadays the ruins are a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Whilst not as spectacular as the great Angkor complexes in Cambodia, the remaining structures are atmospheric enough to conjure images of the majesty of the Champa Kingdom. Wander through the ruins then visit the small museum at the entrance to My Son before heading back to Hoi An.
On the way stop by Phuoc Kieu Village, a 500 year old village specialized in bronze crafting. Some of the products made by this village are bells, gongs, gong-like music instruments, incense burners, lamp holders, ancient vases, and other bronze musical instruments which are normally used in festivals, ceremonies and daily life. Walk around the interesting alleys, visit a workshop and a temple where locals worship ancestors.
