Discover a new side of Vietnamese history and culture with a visit to the Son My Memorial and the My Son temple city. A guide leads you through the violent events of the My Lai Massacre whose victims Son My commemorates, then introduces you to ancient religion and heritage at My Son.

Depart from your Hoi An hotel in the morning and make the long drive to Son My Memorial, admiring views of the countryside as you go. The memorial and its museum are dedicated to the victims of the My Lai Massacre, one of the most violent events of the American War that ended the lives of at least 347 villagers in 1968. Visit the museum house, where comprehensive exhibits of documents, photos, and authentic relics from the area preserve the event and its significance in memory.

After immersing yourself in the solemn history of Son My Memorial, restore your energy with a replenishing lunch. Your next destination is the temple city of My Son, whose Hindu temples date as far back as the 4th century. The UNESCO-listed site features over 70 temples and tombs that were used by the kings of Champa until the 14th century, and as you explore the partially ruined complex, you can learn about the people and religion practised there from your guide. Conclude your tour in the evening with a peaceful ride back to Hoi An.

It was a VERY long day (11 hours) but a very enjoyable and informative tour. We had a private tour with the 2 of us, a driver and a guide all to ourselves. This was much better than a big bus of tourists. However tour was in a Mazda 3, which does not have much leg room in the back for western tourists, and hard seats giving us a numb bum, so a slightly larger car would have been better for such a long day.

My whole family got food poisioning from the lunch food. Lunch was at a local noodle restaurant with poor hygiene.
