Touropia describes Hoi An as a beautiful, old city dating back 2,000 years to the Champa kingdom. The ancient town is the heart of the city with the narrow, winding lanes lined with beautiful old architecture, traditional wooden houses and hundreds of tailor shops selling clothing, shoes, bags, souvenirs and custom-made services.

My Son Sanctuary is introduced as one of Southeast Asia’s most notable ancient sites. It was once a significant center of religious Hindu ceremonies where the kings of the Champa kingdom built numerous temples devoted to the worship of the god, Shiva, between the 4th and 14th centuries.
