Cao Dai Temple - Cu Chi Tunnel (Full day)

08.00AM - 08.30AM Our guide and driver will pick you up at your hotel in Saigon center and take you to Cao Dai temple - Tay Ninh province 95 kms South East of Ho Chi Minh city. The Cao Dai temple is decorated with multi-colored 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. Everyday at 12.00 noon a ceremony is held, which is open to visitors. 

Lunch at local restaurant. In the afternoon, proceed to Ben Dinh tunnels, Cu Chi to visit the legendary underground network of tunnels built by the Viet Cong during the American War.

Questions & Answers

  • Asked by Thomas Marsden | 01 Jun 2019

    Hello, What is the age requirements for the tunnels and the gun range ? Also are the tunnels checked for saftey from collapse and dangerous insects / animals?

    Answered by admin | 04 Jun 2019

    As for the tunnels they have been reconstructed for tourists, you don’t go in the real ones as that would not be safe. Everything has been put in a way do you can see it, it’s open apart from the tunnels. It just gives you an idea. It’s all clean. In rainy season the place would get muddy. Gun range is there but separate to visit so extra charge. Yes there’s an age limit and it’s very noisy. The shooting is limit to 18+ but not strict.

    Hello, What are rules when going in Cao Dai temple? Thanks

    Answered by admin | 04 Jun 2019

    Hello, Thanks for your question. To visit any pagoda or temple, it is respectful to cover your knees and your shoulders. You should not wear sleeveless shirts, but a sarong will be given to you to cover your legs. Within the temple, males must enter on the right and females to the left and shoes have to be removed before entering the massive main hall. Your sincerely!

Cao Dai Temple is the center for a small unique religious sect in Vietnam. We visited a stunning temple complex and viewed the daily devotional ceremony. The visit to the Cu Chi Tunnels provides Americans with another view of the war and the efforts of the Vietnamese people to keep foreign powers from dominating their country. Our guide was excellent—well-informed, friendly, and much more proficient in English than other guides we have had in Vietnam.

I had the pleasure of joining Danny on the tour to Cao Dai and Cu Chi. He was very funny and made the tour interesting for the guests, while always checking that we were all comfortable and were having a good time. He was very patient with the group and came across as very humble.

We booked this tour and we didn't regret it at all. A one day combination of the Cu Chi tunnels and the temple/cathedral of Cao Dai. Perfect after many walking tours through Saigon. Our guide was Mr. 'Handsome'. He did a perfect job in explaining everything we needed to know, be it the history of Vietnam or the customs of the Cao Dai believers in a very good English, decorated with some good jokes and quite good singing. Everything was perfectly organized, even in Cu Chi where a lot of tourist were. He always found a shortcut, a detour or a good alternative. Enough cooled water and tissues were available and the lunch in a nice restaurant was traditional and very tasty. We saw everything we expected and could attend a Cao Dai ceremony which was unique for us. Thank you Mr.Handsome. You really made it a trip of our life-time!
