  Trip Description
This day trip takes you to Tay Ninh to visit the Cao Dai temple which is home to a unique religion combining Christianity and Buddhism. After a visit here you will explore the Cu Chi Tunnels, a labyrinth of tunnels where the Viet Cong hid during the war.
  Trip Detail

In the morning at 8 AM, we drive to Tay Ninh to observe the midday service. Tay Ninh, near the CambodCaodai temple - www.luxuryprivatetravel.comian border, is home to the unique Cao Dai sect. The religion is a hybrid of Buddhism, Taoism, Confucianism and Christianity. The Cao Dai Temple at Tay Ninh has been described as a Walt Disney fantasia of the East.
The temple’s exterior is decorated with multi-colored dragons of all shapes and sizes. Above the main entrance is the all-seeing holy eye, the symbol of the Cao Dai sect. The interior is just as engaging as statues of Jesus Christ, Buddha and the Hindu god, Brahma, stand side by side.

Following lunch we will drive to the Cu Chi Tunnels. At its height the tunnel system stretched over 250km. from Saigon to the Cambodian border and was three levels deep. The network included innumerable trap doors, specially constructed living areas, storage facilities, weapons factories, field hospitals, command centers and kitchens. Today the remaining tunneCu Chi Tunnels - www.luxuryprivatetravel.comls have become a major tourist attraction giving the visitor a unique experience and a feel of what underground life in the American/Vietnam war must have been like.

The tunnels have been widened for our benefit (otherwise we would not be able to enter them!) For those interested there's even the opportunity to fire off rounds from an AK47 or MK16 at the nearby rifle range. Allegedly the old wooden targets were made to resemble US Marines! We will then return to Ho Chi Minh City around 5 PM.
