The Best Route from Hoi An to My Son Sanctuary
My Son Sanctuary is located near the village of Duy Phu (Duy Xuyen district, Quang Nam province), about 40 km southwest from Hoi An. There are some routes that help you to get to My Son. But the below is the most interesting and safe (at least from our perspective^_^).
From Hoi An to My Son (via Cam Kim Bridge)
Very interesting. And safe. You will have a chance to explore truly Vietnam rural villages with rice paddies, corn fields, rivers, bridges, boats. And meeting rural life with local people, buffalos, cows, ducks,… A half of the route passes small roads. Therefore, it is a little bit difficult to ride. But safety. No big trucks, no big buses. No high-speed motorbike. Ride and enjoy Vietnam’s countryside.
Route: Hoi An Center > Cam Kim Bridge > Cam Kim Commune > Bàn Thạch Pagoda > Duy Vinh Commune > Duy Phuoc Commune > Nam Phuoc Town > Chìm Bridge > Sa Huynh – Champa Culture Museum > Trung Nguyên Cafe > My Son Sanctuary

Remarks: Because the Cam Kim bridge does not allow car to pass, you have to change to the option Walking when doing a search on Google Maps. In addition, remember to add a stop called “Be thui Khanh” (Duy Vinh, Hoi An, Quang Nam) at the between of start point (Hoi An) and the end point (My Son Sanctuary). This will show you the best route. If you do not add the above stop, Google Maps directs you to another route which passes a narrow bridge with low rail (very dangerous!!!!). Just follow the Google Maps link above.
From My Son to Hoi An (via Cua Dai bridge)
On the way to come back to Hoi An, you still follow almost of the route you have ridden. But instead of riding through the temporary bamboo bridge again, you turn to a way to go to Cua Dai bridge. It is rural village also. But it takes you along the river. After finishing Cua Dai bridge, you will ride on the road along with water coconut and the river. A different rural village you have explored on the way to My Son.
