Tours from Hoi An
There are many daily tours to the famous My Son Ruins which are about a half and hour drive out of Hoi An. These were Hindu temples that were built by the Cham people who inhabited the area between the 4th and 15th century. Many of the temples were bombed in the Vietnam war but some still stand looking over the surrounding jungle. Most of the big tour groups are in the early morning so take your time and you might get it all to yourself.
Just 10 min bicycle ride from the Ancient town lies a very unique Tra Que Vegetable Village. This large plot of land is home to many families that earn their living by toiling the fertile land. You will get to see and experience first hand what daily life is like for the locals working amongst the fields. If you are interested in learning more about Vietnams horticulture, a tour to the village is a must.

Either way this is sure to be a memorable experience.
