The sacred temple of Cao Dai and the Cu Chi Tunnels are two of the most visited attractions north of Ho Chi Minh City. With this tour, visit both in one day—attend midday mass at Cao Dai Temple, enjoy a delicious Vietnamese lunch at a local restaurant, and then venture underground to explore the Cu Chi Tunnels, used by the Viet Cong during the Vietnam War.
What to Expect
After pickup from your Ho Chi Minh City hotel, journey to Tay Ninh Province with your guide and group of up to 20 people. Enjoy a tour of the magnificent Cao Dai Temple complex and even join the temple’s resident monks for midday mass to gain an insight into Vietnam’s unique Cao Dai religion.

Stop for a typical Vietnamese lunch at a local restaurant, before continuing to the Cu Chi Tunnels, one of the most impressive war sites in Vietnam. Follow your guide on a tour of the tunnels and learn how the Viet Cong used the more than 124-mile (200-kilometer) network of tunnels as war bunkers, ammunition stores, and command centers. You also have chance to crawl through the tunnels, climb inside one of the camouflaged trapdoors, and taste common foods eaten by the Viet Cong soldiers.

Your tour ends with drop-off at your Ho Chi Minh City hotel.
