|If you come here expecting something to rival Angkor Wat, you will no doubt be disappointed. But if you visit My Son with a keen interest in nature, archaeology and anthropology, you will likely enjoy the site. The scenery is pleasant and the drive out here a worthwhile (if potentially dangerous) excursion. Do keep in mind though that this site isn’t huge, the ruins aren’t in amazing condition, and some obvious restoration work has been done. – Daniel|
