There are some stories on Vietnam war and My Lai is one of the vestiges left. The destruction of an entire village by Lieutenant Calley’s men is probably the best documented military atrocity on record.

Why Hoi An - My Lai is special ?

The massacre occurred on April 16th, 1968. A total of 504 elderly, women, children and babies were mindlessly slaughtered by the ‘Charlie’ Company with almost no resistance.


There is a museum here, with photos depicting the series of events on this horrific day. The atrocities occurred over different sites within a two or three square kilometers area. Walking among the fields, you occasionally come across a memorial plaque indicating the number of people that died on that spot. Lieutenant Calley was later court martialled and sentenced to life, but only served three of those years. Following the US Supreme Court’s refusal to hear his case, Calley was paroled.

What to explore at Hoi An - My Lai?

Your guide & driver meet you at your hotel in Hoi An at 8.00 am. From Hoi An we drive about 140km in a private vehicle South along the National Highway then through rural countryside across to My Lai on the coast where you can visit the My Lai memorial museum.

In the museum you will learn what happened on that tragic day back in March 1968 when over 500 harmless local villagers (including men, women and children) were killed by American troops. After the slaughter the troops set fire to the village to cover up the massacre.

In the grounds around the museum you can see the Peace Memorial Park which is landscaped with statues and a recreation of the burnt out village. Each house in the village has a plaque in front recording the names and ages of the victims.

We return back to Hoi An around 4.00 pm.

We booked this the night before and Jenifer gave a very quick response and confirmed our booking. We did the early morning tour of Hoi An before the crowds. We were met at 5.30am by Loan. What a great girl, interesting and funny... we visited the local market, saw Hoi An before the tourists. Enjoyed a fantastic coffee and then went on the local ferry over to the island to see how the community live. Definitely value for money and Loan is very open to talk about life in Vietnam.

Emailed Neville from another food tour 3 times and he didn't reply. So glad he didn't. My wife and i were picked up by Thum (not sure of spelling) and a young guy. Both spoke very good English and made the food tour on motor bikes so much fun. We had some great conversations and enjoyed delicious local food and beer. Did it on first day so we had a good idea of what to eat in Hoian. Tour was also a sightseeing tour so we got our bearings in city. Traffic was not busy and m/bikes great fun. Best thing we did in Hoian and better than food tour in Hanoi by far. Lasted about 6 hrs. Thum we think your wonderful xo.

I booked this tour as soon as I arrived in Hoi An, had read about it online. I was not disappointed, it was a great morning tour, made even better by the tour guide, Loan, she was so friendly, with lots of local knowledge.The morning was filled with visits to a range of fantastic foods, it was a hands on tour and I was able to make my own white rose, not as good as the professionals but still delicious. We visited the local market, an amazing place full of local foods, lots of tastings and the opportunity to meet the local stall holders.I would highly recommend this tour, it will not disappoint.A big thank you to Loan for being a fantastic tour guide.
