Visiting My Son Sanctuary in central Vietnam next year? Be prepared to pay more for the experience.
The management of the UNESCO-recognized ancient Hindu temple site has recently announced that it would increase entrance fees by 40-50 percent from January 1.
Accordingly, the fees would go from VND100,000 (US$4.5) to VND150,000 ($6.7) for foreigners, and from VND60,000 to VND100,000 for locals.
Huynh Tan Lap, deputy head of My Son’s management board, said the fee hike would be in line with the introduction of some new services, including electric vehicles carrying tourists from Khe The Bridge to the relic site and Cham music performances at the site.
Lap also said that My Son’s relevant facilities such as ticket booths, toilets and the parking lot had been revamped.
Investments into the new services and the facility improvement cost more than VND13 billion ($577,000), said Lap.
My Son, a popular tourist destination with a cluster of 4th century Hindu temples, is some 40 kilometers from Hoi An, an old town and another favorite place in the central province of Quang Nam.
