Cu Chi Tunnels and Cao Dai Temple 1 Day Tour. You might have wondered if Vietnam has a religion of its own. The answer is yes, and its name is Cao Dai. CaoDaiists believe that, before God existed, there was the Tao which was nameless, formless, and unchanging. Then, a Big Bang occurred, out of which God was born. The universe could not yet be formed and to do so, God created yin and yang...
- What is Cao Dai Temple? How many religions there?
- Visiting Cu Chi tunnels, you’ll have a chance to crawl around a portion of the 250 km long, multiple-layered tunnels.
- Learn how thousands of guerillas managed to stay underground many days at a time, also their great technique to conceal smoke from their cooking.
- Even a chance to fire real AK bullets…
In the morning, driver and tour guide pick you up then start from Ho Chi Minh City/Saigon to Cao Dai Temple in Tay Ninh - a province 95 km North of HCMC, close to Cambodia border. Its exterior is decorated with multi-colored dragons of all shapes and sizes competing for space with a number of swastikas. 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.
Cao Dai Temple is the eclectic mix of colors and the amazing use of architecture creates a space of beauty, spirituality with a somewhat surreal flavor to western palates!
After you have lunch, we will leave Tay Ninh and travel to Cu Chi Tunnels. Once in Vietnam, you must visit this spot. This is where guerilla warfare optimized and exemplified. You’ll learn the clever design of the tunnels and the strategic use of trap doors. Even with B-52 bombers dropping 30-ton loads of explosive, turning the jungle into a pockmarked moonscape, 30 thousand American troops failed to conquered the area! You’ll have a chance to crawl around a portion of the 250 km long, multiple-layered tunnel. You’ll learn how thousands of guerillas managed to stay underground many days at a time, also their great technique to conceal smoke from their cooking. There’re a lot more to enjoy, even a chance to fire real AK bullets…
