My Son Sanctuary is about 40 km from Hoi An. There are some different routes to get to My Son. But the below is the most beautiful and safe one. It gives you an opportunity to explore not only the scenic countryside of Vietnam but also the local village life.
A. From Hoi An to My Son (via Cam Kim bridge)
Very beautiful. And safe. It is truly Vietnam rural village with rice paddies, corn fields, rivers, bridges, boats, water buffalo,…. Meet local people of rural Hoi An for a unique insight into the daily lives and traditional trades. A half of the route crosses narrow roads and country paths. Therefore, it is a little bit difficult to ride. But safety. No trucks, no buses. No high-speed motorbike. Ride and enjoy rural Hoi An.
