Hoi An was a major oriental port for trading ships from Japan, China and the West during the 16th and 17th centuries and became the meeting place for a wide range of merchant traders. As a result, the old town in Hoi An has a diverse mixture of architectural styles and today is considered a living museum of architecture and urban lifestyle. Hoi An is world famous for its’ 300+ tailor shops where you can have virtually any item of clothing made or copied to suit your own personal style in a matter of one or two days. For the bargain conscious, Hoi An is close to paradise and you will have great fun choosing your new clothes to take home.

Built in approximately 200AD to 1700AD, My Son was once the spiritual heart of the Kingdom of Champa peoples who occupied what is now the central area of Vietnam for over a thousand years. The builders of My Son gained their cultural and spiritual influences almost exclusively from India in the form of Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva. Shiva was the central figure of worship and his images are common in what remains of the Cham monuments. My Son is situated in an attractive valley, well away from any other buildings in a clearing surrounded by tropical jungle. The peaceful surroundings give you a feeling of stepping back to the time when then area was a major religious complex and even in their current state, the towers are impressive, and the scale of building makes its religious significance obvious.
