Highlights

Start your trip from Ho Chi Minh City and depart for Tay Ninh where the Cao Dai Great Temple is located. Here, you will have time to stroll around the temple, which is regarded as one of the impressive architectural structures in South - East Asia. Maybe, the Cao Dai sect is strange to many people as it’s a special hybrid of Buddhism, Christianity, and Confucianism. At its entrance is the Left Eye of God, which is the Cao Dai religion’s symbol.

After seeing the scenery of the temple, you will attend the midday ceremony organized by the Cao Dai followers to learn about the religious rituals. You can enjoy lunch at a local restaurant, and then be driven towards Cu Chi Tunnel. You will be introduced to a short video which is also an overview of the Cu Chi’s history and Vietnamese endurance. Start discovering some permitted areas of the tunnel system, which is seen as an underground village in Ho Chi Minh City. There are field hospitals, weapon factories, kitchen, command centers, storage facilities, and trap doors. This system was made by hand, which proved the Vietnamese’s intelligence and creativity in the Vietnam war. You can enjoy cassava (the main food of Vietcong during the time of war) and enjoy your tea break of tangy tea.
