Vietnam packs a lot into its borders and holds an alluring charm for travellers. Its verdant countryside, mesmerizing culture, poignant history and welcoming natives make it a dream to explore, but few would expect you can experience so much of the country in just half a day. However, by jumping on a bike and venturing into the countryside with the My Son ruins as your destination, every category can be ticked off on this sensational adventure. There is no better place for garnering an understanding of the clashing cultures that make up Vietnam than in Hoi An. The traditional port town retains a mosaic of influences from French to Japanese and Chinese, but its primetime location on the river and proximity to the beach makes it a tourist hotspot. That’s why the tour is kicked off in town pretty early to check out backstreets in the silence of the morning on your bikes. Alongside the local guide you'll learn plenty about the main sights in the town.
Feeling fully cultured up it’s time to roll your wheels into the sprawling countryside of Vietnam. Renowned for its delectable cuisine and fascinating history, Vietnam’s abundant nature is often overlooked. But on this journey to the My Son ruins it comes flying into full view as you pedal through remote villages and down rural pathways with locals, who wave, smile and shout ‘hello’.
Eventually you will stop for a snack of local fruit and a warm beverage before taking a transfer to the the My Son ruins – home to the ancient center of the Cham Civilization that used to rule large swathes of central and southern Vietnam. Guided by a local, you'll take a tour around the UNESCO World Heritage site which contains the ruins of Hindu temples and towers. Despite being left in pieces by numerous wars, the site retains a spiritual atmosphere and makes for an excellent visit. Following this you will head back to Hoi An, confident that in just half a day you've seen more than most people in Vietnam ever will.
