Start the day with a visit to the famous Cu Chi Tunnels. The tunnel system stretches over 250 kilometers from Sai Gon to the Vietnamese - Cambodian border and is three-levels deep. This system of tunnels consists of hospitals, rooms, kitchen, store area, working room underground. This tunnel was excavated on the area with clay mixing with laterite. So this tunnel is rather durable and stable. The air is put into the tunnel through ventilation holes. This is one of two famous tunnels serving for wars.
Today, the remaining tunnels have become a major tourist attraction, giving the visitors a unique experience of what the underground life was like during the Vietnam War. The Cu Chi Tunnels are arguably the most famous tourist attraction in Vietnam and played 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 the home of the beautiful “Holy See” Temple built by Cao Dai sect. Caodaism practices a unique hybrid of Buddhism, Taoism, Confucianism and Christianity and its patron saints include Sun Yat-Sen, Victor Hugo and Nguyen Binh Khiem.
