We will head North-West of Ho Chi Minh city to see the Great Holy See Temple. Built in 1926, this Cao Dai temple is considered to be one of the most striking structures in all of South-East Asia. It is the headquarters of the unique Cao Dai section, a religion that’s an intriguing hybrid of Buddhism, Christianity & Confucianism. Above the entrance is the all-seeing holy eye – the symbol of this sect. Visitors will attend the midday ceremony’s extravaganza and witness the daily mass held by the Cao Dai followers which is a fantastic experience.
After lunch, proceed to Cu Chi Tunnels to explore the amazing site where Viet Cong hid during the Wars. It is now a popular spot for both Vietnamese & foreign tourists – the network of over 200km of tunnels became legendary when they played a vital role in the War. In their heyday, the tunnels were functioning underground cities including numerous trap doors, specially constructed living areas, storage facilities, weapons factories, field hospitals, command centers & kitchens. There is plenty of evidence of the fierce battle that took place here during the 1960s when Cu Chi was a “Free Target Zone“. Visitors can watch a short introductory video showing how the tunnels were constructed before entering the tunnels. Spend the next hour exploring the tunnels. Afterwards, enjoy tea, cassava (guerrilla’s food in war time). Lastly we will return to Sai Gon.
