In a word, no. From HCMC you can fly or go by bus, or you can travel upriver by boat from Chau Doc in the Mekong Delta.

You can visit the Cu Chi tunnels when you are in HCMC - plenty of day or half-day trips are available and there is no need to book in advance.

hi,

There is no train from vietnam to cambodia. You just get there by bus; by plane; by boat or even by motorbike.

You can visit 2 famous underground tunnels in Viet Nam:

1. Cu Chi tunnel

Phu My Hung ward, Cu chi district, Ho Chi Minh City

2.Vinh Moc tunnel

Vinh Thach ward, Vinh Linh district, Quang tri province

Saigon to PP by bus will cost between $6 and $11 USD. I used Mekong Express for $11 who I found to be very good. Border crossing was very easy.

"nearest beach type resort." nearest to where? Mui Ne is a good beach resort 5 hours up the coast from Saigon.

HCMC to PP 6-7 hours depending on traffic and time at the border. HCMC - Siem Reap for info takes 12-13 hours

Caodai temple on the way to visit Cu Chi tunnel. Canary resort in Mui Ne Beach for my recommendation.

Cao Dai is further away than Cu Chi tunnels from HCMC but is usually done together as an all day tour. Can sometimes be a bit rushed though at Cao Dai;.the guides seem to think all you've come so far to see is the pray session which is fine but the building and the mountain views nearby would make it a one day excursion in it's own right.

Phu Quoc is another beach option. Be aware that if you are crossing into Viet Nam by land or water you MUST have a visa already in your passport, obtained from a Vietnamese Embassy somewhere, Visa on Arrival (which is different in Viet Nam than in other countries) is only available for people flying into Viet Nam.
