Tay Ninh Tourism

Tay Ninh, the capital city of Tay Ninh province, is the site for the famous Cu Chi Tunnels built during the Vietnam War for military siege. It shares its borders with Cambodia and is only 90 kms from the largest city of Vietnam, Ho Chi Minh. The city’s crucial location gives it an economic advantage. Tay Ninh is the centre and the birthplace of the religion ‘Cao Dai’ which was founded in 1962. The belief is common among millions of Vietnamese civilians. The Cao Dai Temple is the Mecca of Cao Daism and is a popular tourist attraction as well.

Tay Ninh is a typical southern city of Vietnam surrounded by rice fields and roads full of motorcycles. Although Tay Ninh seems more of an economic region, it does an excellent job of keeping tourists busy by offering many sightseeing sites, markets and activities to engage in. It also has a decent number of hotels where one could stay comfortably coupled with a chain of restaurants and cafes for a wine and dine experience.
