Vietnam Invasion (Ho Chi Minh)

      The Reunification Palace

Designed as the home of former President Ngo Dinh Diem, the U.S.-backed leader ofVietnam until his assassination in 1962, this building is most notable for its symbolic role in the fall of Saigon in April 1975.

 Cao Dai Temple

Cao Dai, is a fusion of the teachings from Taoism, Buddhism and Confucianism, with elements of Christianity and Islam. The three principal colors of Cao Dai are yellow (for Buddhism), blue (for Taoism), and red (for Christianity), and these appear in worshippers’ robes as well as the temple. Within the temple, males must enter on the right and females to the left and shoes have to be removed before entering the massive main hall. Once you step into the temple, you seem to be removed from the hassle and bustle of the outside world and placed into a world of calmness, peace and light.

Most people visit the CaoDai Temple together with the Cu Chi Tunnels. The bus ride takes about two hours.

  Cu Chi Tunnel

A must see attraction when visiting Ho Chi Minh,Vietnam. The remnants of the war is still disturbingly preserved. We have a very good English speaking guide and we were guided through the history of the entire area, booby traps, left-over bombs and we get to experience first hand how stale the air is inside the tunnel.

   Pho– The soup includes noodles made from rice and is often served with Asian basil, mint leaves, lime, and bean sprouts that are added to the soup by the person who is dining. A must in vietnam. Really good..
