Full description
Explore the winding, underground passageways of the Cu Chi Tunnels. The Cu Chi Tunnel Historical Site Tour will include visiting an American weapons gallery, and later on, even a bullet riddled tank. You will be shown a variety of ingenious and rather brutal booby traps used by the VC. Try to discover secret entrances hidden by fake termite mounds and other creative disguises. You’ll learn everything from how the kitchens fed up to 10,000 fighters in the tunnels (and how they disguised the smoke), to how they defended the tunnels from American bombs and infiltrators. You’ll even see the huge crater formed by an American B52 bomber.

An of course, you’ll be able to explore the 1 meter high tunnels themselves. These tunnels have been enlarged slightly, but it can still be a pretty claustrophobic experience – imagine living down there for months. Fortunately, there are regular exits that allow you to leave easily if you wish. The original, unchanged tunnels can also be explored, although this is certainly not for the fainthearted. At the end of the Cu Chi Tunnels tour, you will be able to fire real war era weapons including the M66 and AK47 at a firing range.

Afterwards, visit the Cao Dai Temple, a unique representation of the world’s youngest and perhaps the most fascinating religion Cao Dai is a combination of Buddhism, Taoism, Catholicism and a few other religions. Founded in 1926 4 kilometers east of Tay Ninh, the Cao Dai Temple, like the religion, is a fusion of world influences. The temple is charming in its colorful, mysterious and marvellous architecture. As well as being a major center of pilgrimage, the Cao Dai Temple is also one of Vietnam’s major tourist attractions.
