Visit Cu Chi Tunnels

After breakfast, you will be met at the hotel by your private tour guide, ready to depart for a 1,5-hour drive through the hustle and bustle of Saigon, heading northwest (75 km) to Cu Chi, an outer suburb of Ho Chi Minh City.

On arrival at Cu Chi, we will watch a documentary on the interesting history of these amazing tunnels. This will be followed by a two-hour sightseeing trek on foot along uneven mud paths through the bush and, if you choose, crawling through some of these historical tunnels. Nowadays, the Cu Chi tunnel system has been made wider and cleaner to accommodate tourists.

Visit Cao Dai Temple and attend the Mass

Leaving Cu Chi Tunnels, we will return to our private car and continue another 1 ½ hour drive (60 km) to Tay Ninh to the ‘Holy See’ and see the unforgettable ½ hr Cao Dai service. Cao Dai religion is an indigenous Vietnamese faith that includes the teachings of the major world religions such as Christianity, Buddhism, and Muslim to name a few.

At 12:00: The official service will begin and continue for about 45 minutes, plenty of time for observing the strangest religion of the world and taking wonderful photos. Following the ceremony, we’ll transfer (10mins drive) to have lunch. As restaurants are limited in this area, the meal is simple but satisfying.

After lunch, drive 3 hours (100km) back to Ho Chi Minh City. Stop en route to visit a Lacquer Factory where those with disabilities work and produce delightful handicrafts.

At 5:30 pm: End of a great day as we return to your hotel.
