ADMIRE CAO DAI TEMPLE & EXPERIENCE CU CHI TUNNEL

Tay Ninh, near the Cambodian border, is home to the unique Cao Dai sect, whose patron saints include Joan of Arc, Victor Hugo and Winston Churchill to name a few. The religion is a hybrid of Buddhism, Taoism, Confucianism and Christianity. The Cao Dai Temple at Tay Ninh has been described as a Walt Disney fantasia of the East. The temple's exterior is decorated with multicolored 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.

Begin the day with a trip to the Cu Chi Tunnels. The tunnel system stretched over 200 km from Sai Gon to the Vietnamese-Cambodian border and was three levels deep. Today, the remaining tunnels have become a major tourist attraction, giving the visitors a unique experience and a feel of what underground life in the Vietnam War must have been like. The Cu Chi Tunnels are arguably the most famous tourist attraction that Vietnam has to offer as it played such an important role in the Vietnam War.
After the Cu Chi Tunnels, we will go to Tay Ninh Province, a southern province near the Vietnamese-Cambodian border. It is home of the unique Cao Dai sect, whose patron saints include Sun Yat-Sen, Victor Hugo and Nguyen Binh Khiem. The religion is a hybrid of Buddhism, Taoism, Confucianism and Christianity.
