1 DAY(S) Days Tours

Ho Chi Minh city- Cu Chi Tay Ninh- Ho Chi Minh city


Visit the Cao Dai Temple and learn about the stunning architecture of South East Asia and join the noon mass of the Cao Dai faithful. Then, explore the Cu Chi Tunnels – the underground network of rooms used by the Viet Cong during the Vietnam War, watch a war documentary, shoot an AK-47, and more.


  • Visit Cao Dai Temple and attend the noon ceremony organized by the Cao Dai followers.
  • Delve into an underground world of guerrilla warfare in the incredible Cu Chi Tunnels.
  • Discover the historical significance of the tunnel network and the role it played in the Vietnam War.
  • Taste some of the cassava that the Viet Cong ate during the Vietnam War.


The tour begins with a pickup from your central Ho Chi Minh City hotel and an around 3-hour drive to Cao Dai Temple in Tay Ninh. On arrival, set out to explore the sacred temple with your guide and learn more about the fascinating Cao Dai religion, which borrows elements from Buddhism, Christianity, Confucianism, Hinduism, Islam, and Taoism. Then, take part in the midday mass, admiring the monks in their colorful robes and listening to the mesmerizing chants.

After stopping for lunch at a local restaurant, continue to discover one of the most fascinating remnants of the Vietnam – American war: The Cu Chi Tunnels. Venture underground to explore the network of tunnels and bunkers, which stretch for over 124 miles (200km), and hear how they were used by the Viet Cong guerilla fighters. During your visit, learn more about the tunnels by watching a video presentation; explore the underground war bunkers, command centers, and weapons stores; pose for photos peeking out of a camouflaged trapdoor; and sample ‘cassava’, a popular dish eaten by the guerrilla fighters. Test your aim as you try to fire an AK-47 at the shooting range before heading back to Ho Chi Minh City.
