Vietnam, My Son
This World Heritage site (pronounced ‘mee sun’) dating back over 1500 years consists of around 20 structures where 68 once stood before the American war; the VC used the area as a base consequently a lot of ordinance was dropped on the ancient temple ruins. Restoration efforts were taking place and the site gets very crowded with tour buses from Danang and Hoi An in the mornings. Fortunately when we rode in it was late afternoon with very few other visitors and a beautiful light from the slowly sinking tropical sun.
