What You'll Do
  • Discover the beauty of the Cao Dai religion
  • Visit a whimsical example of Cao Dai's Temples
  • Head to Cu Chi for a look at the 121 km (75mi) long tunnels that kept guerilla fighters winning against the Americans
  • Fire a real life AK gun
  • Enjoy a typical lunch along the way
Uncover the mysteries of Vietnam with a day trip to Cao Dai Temple, where you can stand next to Jesus, Buddha and Brahma under one roof. Then move to the less peaceful confines of the tunnels at Cu Chi, and discover the darker side of Vietnam's past.
What to Expect
Understanding the culture and religions of a region are essential to good travel. Today, we bring you deep into the Vietnamese religion of Cao Dai: a beautiful and peaceful religion dedicated to the Tao, that nameless, formless thing that existed before God was born during the Big Bang.

Your guide will help lead you through this, so you can learn a great deal about Cao Dai, during your tour of Tay Ninh. Located close to the Cambodian border, the Cao Dai Temple is a marvelous and whimsical example of our great temples. Decorated with multicolored dragons and swastikas (the good kind), the main entrance leads you directly into a room to stand face to face with Jesus, Buddha and Brahma, who all share space in our temple.

There will be a lunch served before we head to Cu Chi, which is a must-visit spot in Vietnam. From the peaceful temple, we head into the war zone, where you will find clever uses for trap doors, and a fascinating example of guerilla warfare. This area was never conquered by American troops, even after massive bombing raids and 30,000 troops entering! You will have the chance to crawl around the portion of the tunnel and see how thousands of guerillas managed to stay underground for days at a time. If you want, you can even try your hand and fire a real life AK!

We will arrive back in Ho Chi Minh City around 18.30.
