CAO DAI TEMPLE & CU CHI TUNNELS WHAT INTERESTING.
Cao Dai Temple & Cu Chi Tunnels will visit Cao Dai Temple first. Cao Dai Temple is the remarkable and beautifully ornate showpiece of a religion established in southern Vietnam as recently as 1926. Truly one of the world’s newest and most eclectic religions. At the Temple your guide will explain to you about the fascinating blend of religions behind the Cao Dai sect during one of the daily worship ceremonies inside the colorful temple. Like the Cao Dai religion itself, the building’s architecture marries eastern and western influences. The temple is part-cathedral, part-pagoda, part-mosque, and part-fairytale. Unusual pastel colors are embellished with gold and polished glass, and outside the building is guarded by ornate brightly-colored dragons that are as much fantasy as fearsome.
The interior is possibly even more striking than the outside. Swirling designs are complemented by various statues of religious figures standing side by side – a vision of peaceful harmony in a once war-torn area.
Cao Dai Temple & Cu Chi Tunnels continue to visit Cu Chi Tunnels. After a Vietnamese-style lunch at a local restaurant you’ll enjoy a comfortable drive through the countryside before arriving at the labyrinthine underground system of the Cu Chi Tunnels. This elaborate network was used as a strategic military base by the Viet Cong because of its proximity to the southern capital of Saigon. It contained schools, hospitals, hidden kitchens, meeting rooms and living quarters during the Vietnam War (known in Vietnam as the American War) that connected several villages. Today, it is preserved by the government as a memorial park. See a short film about the historical importance of the Cu Chi tunnels before walking with your guide into the forest where the tunnels are located. Discover what life was like down below as you crawl into some of the narrow passageways. Today the remaining tunnels offer visitors a real feel for what life was like for guerrilla fighters and their families who lived below ground during the war.
After your visit Cao Dai Temple & Cu Chi Tunnels, the tour ends with drop-off at your hotel.
