The beautiful Cao Dai Temple and the invisible miracle of Cu Chi!
The Great Holy See Temple, built in 1926, is considered one of the most striking structures in all of South-East Asia. It is the headquarters of the unique Cao Dai sect, a religious hybrid, incorporating Buddhism, Christianity & Confucianism. Above the entrance is the all-seeing holy eye, a symbol of the sect. Visitors will attend the midday ceremony extravaganza, to witness the daily mass held by the Cao Dai followers which is a fantastic experience.
Located 60km from Ho Chi Minh City, Cu Chi is now a popular spot for both Vietnamese & foreign tourists alike. The 200km network of tunnels became legendary because of their vital role in the war. In their heyday, the tunnels were fully functioning underground cities including numerous trap doors, specially constructed living areas, storage facilities, weapons factories, field hospitals, command centers & kitchens.
Are you ready for "The Cao Dai and Cu Chi Tunnels Experience"!
With this trip, we have built our reputation!
Day 1: Ho Chi Minh City - Cao Dai - Cu Chi Tunnels - Ho Chi Minh City
Our mini-van departs around 8am towards the Cao Dai Temple. You will be guided around, informed by our tour guide about the fascinating history of this religious area and there will be time to explore the Temple by yourself.
We continue our tour in the afternoon and before entering the tunnels visitors can watch a short introductory video, showing how the tunnels were constructed. You will be guided around the former heart of the tunnel network afterwards. You’ll spend the next hour exploring the tunnels before having a refreshing tea and cassava, which was eaten by the guerrillas during the war. See the traps they used, experience how it is to be in one of their small shelters, try to find a hidden tunnel door yourself and wonder around the heavily bombed area. It's even possible to shoot with an automatic weapen, like the AK47 or M16, if you want to. Any question will be answered by your English speaking tour guide. We'll be heading back to Ho Chi Minh City in the late afternoon.
