Hoi An to My Lai distance is about 130 km and it takes around 2.5 hours to get there. Book the Hoi An My Lai Tour with an English speaking driver.

You will have a chance to understand deeply the horrific crimes caused by the US military to the people of Vietnam in My Lai and the suffering of the Vietnamese people during the American War, and the Vietnamese culture and customs as well.

My Lai massacre was a war crime by the United States Army during the Vietnam War. In English, the massacre was named My Lai Massacre, Son My Massacre or Pinkville, in which Pinkville was the area that the United States Army named for this region.

On 16 March 1968, in My Lai hamlet, Son My village, Son Tinh District, Quang Ngai Province, US Army troops have massacred 504 series civilians without arms, among which are mostly the old, women and children.

Before being murdered, many of the victims were raped, tortured, beaten, or cut off body parts. This catastrophic event shocked the US, Vietnam, and the world, warming up the anti-war movement and was one of the causes of the United States Army’s evacuation from Vietnam in 1972.


In the morning

Because this is the private tour by private car transfer so you are the boss, you can decide the departure time.

At your requested time, our English speaking driver will pick you up at your hotel/ homestay in Hoi An and we start the Hoi An to My Lai trip. On the way, you can ask our friendly driver to stop to have some coffee, lunch or stretch your legs.

The first place in our Hoi An My Lai Tour is the My Son Sanctuary, the worshipping area of the Champa Kingdom from 4th to 13th century. It is complex of Hinduism ruin temples made by bricks and sandstones.

But the mysterious My Son Holy Land still attracts a lot of people who love the ancient Cham architecture and Culture. Moreover, you also have a great chance to enjoy the gorgeous royal dance of the ancient Champa Kingdom.

In the afternoon

Keep doing Hoi An to My Lai Massacre, our driver will drive you to the house of evidence in My Lai hamlet.

The massacre of My Lai in 1968 was called “the most horrific chapter in the Vietnam war.” This incident was hidden for nearly a year and caused outrage and global change.

The bloody split conflict of the Vietnam War caused the deaths of one million Vietnamese civilians, worsened by the involvement of the US military.

On a private tour in My Lai, exploring the history of violent war has caused the deaths of more than 500 men, women, children, and even infants in the village.

After that, we move to the village after being picked up at the hotel to explore the peaceful and strange village surrounded by rice fields and coconut trees, in contrast to the images of burnt houses and military shoes that used to walk on this area.

We keep visiting My Lai monument at Hoa Binh My Lai Park to witness war victims commemorated and honoured. An English speaking guide will help you learn more about the battle that has ruined My Lai.

At 5:00 pm end the tour and return to your hotel safely.
