A huge and beautiful complex. Cao Dai is a new religion which tries to combine the widom of the many established faiths. I would have liked a bit more information but other than that it was great.

The Cao Daia Temple is located a couple of hours away from Ho Chi Minh. We went through an organized tour combing it with the Cu Chi Tunnels. The building itself is ok, a bit kitsch. I had never heard about the Cao Dai religion...More

We arrived in time to join one of the 4 ceremonies they hold at noon. The others are on 6 and 18 o'clock and at midnight.

Very nice observing the ceremony, putting aside the loud group of tourists who had to be told to STFU. The balcony does get overcrowded. Best combined with trip to Nui Ba Den mountain, also stopping in the Trang Bang village en-route from HCMC.

Caodaism is a fascinating belief system to research and see first-hand. If you're visiting Ho Chi Minh City, then you have an incredible opportunity. It's possible to incorporate a trip to the Cu Chi Tunnels with a visit to the Cao Dai Temple. If you...More

Hi Sandra, I'd plan to get there around 11am, that way you can have a look around before the service. Then you can have lunch in the nearby town, This should get you to the tunnels mid afternoon. I agree with the message... More
