For a glimpse into eight centuries of history, head to the My Son Sanctuary, which is filled with sculptures from across the ages. For a truly authentic and exciting experience, go on a motorbike tour of the villages and towns in the area with your own personal guide to give you plenty of colourful history and background information.
The Cham Museum documents the rise and fall of the Cham civilisation – one of the most important societies to occupy this part of Southeast Asia. A little further out are the Marble Mountains, each of which represents an element (such as water, earth, fire and wind) and are filled with caves and grottos to explore.
For a spectacular night-time photo opportunity, head to the Dragon Bridge that sits on the Han River. This bridge has a huge metal dragon incorporated into its design, which changes colour at night and even breathes fire during the weekend, making it an exciting attraction for the whole family. Get there early for the best spots.
Just outside the city is the Ba Na Hill Station, reachable by a cable car system through one of the longest one-way cable rides in the world. The cable car takes you to the top of the hill, where you have fantastic panoramic views of the city and surrounding mountains.
