Cao Dai is a syncretistic Vietnamese religious movement that incorporates aspect of Buddhism, Taoism, Confucianism and even Catholicism. Here, we will have chance to see a modern architecture closely resembles Christian cathedral… There are 4 ceremonies in a day, 6AM, Noon, 6PM & midnight. We will visit NOON ceremony at 12:00, a biggest one in a day.
We can see an orchestra of 10 musicians and a choir of 20 youths lead the service in prayer and hymns. The hymns sound western, but the accompanying music is traditional Vietnamese. We can take photos, and we are also asked for trousers, skirts covering the knees; remove shoes before entering and remain quiet as possible during the ceremony.
After a half of hour ceremony, we will be back to our vehicle to transfer to the local restaurant for our lunch. After lunch, we will transfer to Cu Chi Tunnel where is located in the Cu Chi District of Ho Chi Minh city. The tunnels were used by Viet Cong guerrillas as hiding spots during combat, as well as serving as communication and supply routes, hospitals, food and weapon caches and living quarters for numerous guerrilla fighters.
Before entering the tunnels, we will see a short introductory video showing how they were constructed; then we will have an exploration of the maze of tunnels. We will visit the safe part of the tunnel system which may be made larger and lightening. Above-ground attractions include caged monkeys, vendor selling souvenir, and a shooting range where we can fire a number of assault rifle, such as the M16 rifle or AK-47, as well as a light machine gun like the M60.
