dont miss out! Must See Oct 02, 2014
Many will comment on how if you have seen the ruins of Cambodia this will disappoint! However I haven't and therefore would say that this was an amazing experience that should not be missed. Make sure you take a hat, as it was very humid when I went and plenty of water as you will find these two things crucial to your enjoyment level. The whole tour was truly awesome and I am so glad I went to see it. I was amazed by the spider webs on the ruins, but this didn't put me off and I hate spiders, didn't see any just the webs. some amazing photos were taken here. I believe that this is a MUST SEE!

My Son, located in Southern Vietnam, was a center for spirituality and worship during the reign of the Champa Kingdom. The My Son Sanctuary, which exemplifies the height of Cham architectural achievement, is a large complex of religious monuments originally comprised of more than 70 structures; the vestiges of 25 of these structures remain today. The builders of My Son were the nobility of the Champa Kingdom who derived their cultural and spiritual influences almost exclusively from India. My Son is definately worth a visit. A lot of restoration has to be done, but you get quite a good idea of the skills of the Champa people. At certain locations bomb craters can still be seen. One thing you'd better skip is the "traditional dance show", it looks fake and the musicians don't actually play the music themselves, but a tape is played back.
My Son Sanctuary needs to be resto…

Day 1 Arrived in Bangkok and checked in to the Royal Hotel. I'm told that as Bangkok is a city of Rivers and Canals then the best place to see it from is the water.
