Tay Ninh province is approximately 90km northwest of Ho Chi Minh City. While most visitors to Vietnam know about the vast tunnel complex and underground fortress, fewer people know the history and significance of the beautiful Black Virgin Mountain and the Cao Dai temples nearby. This entire area and these sites are revered by the Vietnamese people, and have held an important place in their history, religion and hearts for centuries.
Depart your hotel with guide and travel in a private car to Tay Ninh province. Mid-morning arrive at the Black Mountain in Tay Ninh province. Visit Ba Den pagoda by cable car. The view is breathtaking, and you will be surrounded on both sides by mango trees and woodland flowers. Nui Ba Den (The Mountain of the Black Virgin) has a unique aura of power and mystery. It is a green tree-covered mass of granite that rises 3,000 feet up out of the rice fields and jungle and into the clouds. There are two more pagodas above the main pagoda. If you want to hike up even higher, you will be rewarded with spectacular views of Tay Ninh province.
At noon depart the Black Mountain and then visit Cu Chi tunnels. On the way to Cu Chi you will stop at local restaurant for a spectacular lunch. Spend time touring the tunnels before returning to ho Chi Minh City by early evening.

Hi Paul, it's hard to arrange the tour if you start from Phu My Port, as it would take 4 hours each way to drive from Phu My to Tay Ninh province and back. Plus with the heavy traffic in Ho Chi Minh City, we can't guarantee... More
Hi Paul, it's hard to arrange the tour if you start from Phu My Port, as it would take 4 hours each way to drive from Phu My to Tay Ninh province and back. Plus with the heavy traffic in Ho Chi Minh City, we can't guarantee to escort you back on time.
We suggest you should do another tour instead.
