Overview
The sacred temple of Cao Dai and the Cu Chi Tunnels are two of the most visited attractions north of Ho Chi Minh City. On 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.
Highlights
  • Two top attractions on one tour: Cao Dai Temple and Cu Chi Tunnels
  • Delicious Vietnamese lunch at a local restaurant
  • Save money on a group tour with entrance fees included
  • Hassle-free hotel pickup and round-trip transport from Ho Chi Minh City
What to Expect
After pickup from your Ho Chi Minh City hotel, journey to Tay Ninh Province with your guide and group. 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 a 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.

Good god almighty this tour takes all day, almost 7 hours of bus rides. The tour guide didn't know much about Cao Dai temple but knew a lot about the Cu Chi Tunnels. His pronunciation was not good, although he was friendly. Cao Dai Temple itself is very cool and unique. The Cu

Great tour guide but the traffic and the amount of time to get to these two tourists spots may not be worth the time riding in the bus. Almost 12 hours. Driver was good and lunch was plentiful.
