A morning drive will take you to Tay Ninh to visit the Cao Dai Holy site. Arrive in time to watch the midday ceremony. Cao Dai is a ‘new’ religion unique to Vietnam with around a million followers. Both its creed and its architecture are remarkable and exotic. The service lasts about half an hour – the rituals are based upon an eclectic mixture of Catholicism, Hinduism, Buddhism and Taoism. Discreet photography is OK, but shoes must be left outside
After lunch, you will visit the famous Cu Chi tunnels, a byzantine maze of underground passages, chambers, rooms and booby traps used by both the Vietminh and the Viet Cong to suddenly materialize as if from nowhere to launch a lightning ambush. You will watch a short introductory video on the tunnels construction and then explore the maze of tunnels where one can quickly disappear. Return to Ho Chi Minh City.
