What To Expect

Black Virgin Mountain
Pick-up at 6am. Have breakfast at a local restaurant then proceed to Black Lady Mountain, approximately 3.5hrs to the Northeast of Tay Ninh. Black Lady Mountain consists of three major mountains covering an area of 24 kilometers and reaching an altitude of 986 meters. Conquering the 986-meter-high mountain, the highest in the nation’s southeastern region, might be a once-in-a-lifetime experience. The beautiful temples and caves at Black Lady Mountain used to house Buddhist monks and nuns remain largely undisturbed. Soaring on the cable car, we can take a panoramic view of a waterfall under the glistening sun, mysterious caves and dense forest.

Cao Dai Temple
We move to Cao Dai Temple is like a Walt Disney fantasia of the East. Its exterior 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.
Cao Dai Temple is the eclectic mix of colours and the amazing use of architecture create a space of beauty, spirituality with a somewhat surreal flavour to western palates!

For the midday service which was unbelievable in Cao Dai Temple - do not miss this!

Cu Chi Tunnels
After you have a lunch, we will leave Tay Ninh and travel to Cu Chi Tunnel. Once in Vietnam, you must visit this spot. This is where guerilla warfare optimized and exemplified. You’ll learn the clever design of the tunnels and the strategic use of trap doors. Even with B-52 bombers dropping 30-ton loads of explosive, turning the jungle into a pockmarked moonscape, 30 thousand American troops failed to conquered the area! You’ll have a chance to crawl around a portion of the 121 km long, multiple-layered tunnel. You’ll learn how thousands of guerillas managed to stay underground many days at a time, also their great technique to conceal smoke from their cooking. There’re a lot more to enjoy, even a chance to fire real AK bullets…
Finish 1 Day Tour. Arriving Saigon/Ho Chi Minh City at 06.00pm - 07.00pm.
