        You’ll have to do some walking to get around the site. The best route is to take the ‘entrance’ heading left near the start and to take the loop heading back.

        It takes about an hour and a half to drive here by motorbike from . This is a pleasant (if busy) ride for the most part, but the 3.5km section of highway can be challenging – especially on the way back when you can completely miss the small slip road back to .

        Top Descriptions

        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

        Top Tips

        If you decide to go inside some of the open temples, do keep an eye out for the huntsman spiders that like to lurk there ;).
        To save yourself 4kms of walking, catch the electric shuttle bus from the ticket office to the main site.
        Aim to arrive here for sunrise or after 2pm if you want to avoid sharing the site with large tour groups.
