Cu Chi Tunnels


Cao Dai Great Temple

Mr. Le Duy will pick you up in the morning from your hotel in Saigon. CuChi Tunnels are about two hours northwest of Saigon. On the way to CuChi Tunnels, you will stop at a village where rice paper is manufactured. The villagers often allow our guests into their homes to observe how they live, and to see their business. You will also pass through a floating village of homes built on the water. You will also pass a duck farm where the villagers raise ducks to sell for food.

Cu Chi Tunnels are a network of underground tunnels begun in 1948 by the Viet Minh in their struggle against the French. These tunnels were expanded and used by the Viet Cong during the war between Vietnam and America.

From CuChi Tunnels, you will travel to the Cao Dai Great Temple in Tay Ninh in time to observe high mass. Cao Dai is a uniquely Vietnamese religion combining the tenants of Buddhism, Confucianism, Laoism, Catholicism, and Hinduism. During our visit to their elaborately decorated temple, we will witness the daily ceremony at noon and pleasant traditional music.

You will stop for lunch on your way back to Saigon, arriving at your hotel late in the afternoon.
