ITINERARY

7:30  Your Vespa and guide will meet you at your hotel. It’s time to click on your helmet and start your adventure in the countryside on your classic Piaggio Vespa. Enjoy the unique sounds of this scooter that is so rich with it’s own history.

We journey through the countryside where the small hamlets are alive with the activities of the locals who are busy with their daily business. We stop and explore a local pottery village before making our way along a levee to visit an ancient Banyan tree. The Banyan tree is the heart of a bustling morning market that has been a part of daily life in the village for over 50 years. Enjoy a Vietnamese coffee and watch the bustling market activities. Please take a walk through the market and soak up the atmosphere.

8:45 We return to our Vespa and continue exploring the countryside before arriving at a very special market. The market is filled with little piglets. The piglets are raised in the homes of the villagers and are a key part of life in the village. Your guide will explain the history and purpose of this fascinating market.

9:30 Leaving the piglet market we continue our scenic trip to My Son via small village roads lined with local houses and picturesque paddy fields.

10:30 We arrive at My Son Sanctuary and are greeted by the sounds of the haunting Cham music filling the air. Here we stop to take in the vibrantly dressed dancers enjoying a traditional dance performance before starting your walking tour of the ancient ruins. The tour begins with a short ascent along a track bordered by jungle. As we reach the top, the ancient ruins appear. While you explore the area your guide will explain the history of the religious site which served as a burial site for the Cham monarchs many centuries ago.

11:30 After exploring My Son, we continue our trip. There is plenty to see, so it’s time to get moving again. Our first stop is a bronze casting village. We stop at a house in the village to learn about bronze casting and its uses in Vietnam and why it is so important.
