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 multi-colored dragons of all shapes and sizes competing for space with a number of swastikas. When joining this Full Day Cao Dai Temple and Cu Chi Tunnels Tour, you will also have a great opportunity to visit and learn more about the famous historic site as Cu Chi tunnels. Coming here, you will see the bravery and the intelligence of Vietnam troops. Also, you will experience yourself the life underground in such small tunnels.
