This religion is an odd mix of Buddhist, Taoist, Confucianism and Christianity. You will have chance to join Cao Dai worshippers for their daily noontide ceremony where hundreds of worshipers attired in lively red, yellow blue and white, chant religious hymns. We join the ceremonies at 12:00, a biggest one in a day.

Also on display are various mantraps and the remains of an American tank as well as numerous bomb craters made by 500lb bombs dropped by B52 bombers. After that we transfer back to Ho Chi Minh City.
