Tay Ninh is an amazing place. I have been there twice. Planning on going back in the near future. It has to be one of if not my most favorite spot in Vietnam.

I have never been to Tay Ninh and really hadn’t heard much about it.
It looks like a really beautiful place though! I wish I was able to travel more. I have to really pick and choose when I do get to travel as I seldom do, maybe once every 3 to 5 years :(

Aw man, I totally feel you on not being able to travel as often as you’d like. It’s a bummer when real life gets in the way of our wanderlust, huh? But hey, when you do get the chance to go on a trip, Tay Ninh is a really gorgeous place to consider! Have you ever thought about planning a visit there when you do get the opportunity? It’s definitely worth checking out!

I’ve been to Tay Ninh and it was one of the most memorable trips I’ve ever taken. The food is great, but there’s also so much more to do! I highly recommend visiting during the day and taking a bike ride through the rice fields. You can also watch traditional dance performances in the evening.

@britishburton What time of the year did you go? I feel like the timing is everything for a location like this. Having good weather can make or break it.

@kikobeep I went to Tay Ninh in the summer. I was there for about a week, and it was really hot.

I couldn’t resist a delightful bike ride through the picturesque rice fields in Tay Ninh! The scrumptious food is simply mouthwatering, but you’ll also find vibrant markets and awe-inspiring temples to explore. Believe me, you won’t be left uninspired!

The Cao Dai temple sounds very interesting! Knowing they have a blend of Buddhism, Christianity, and Taoism makes me curious about this. I was raised a Christian but have always been open to concepts and teaching of Buddhism and Taoism. Neat!

@caphekitty I was thinking the same thing. I rarely see regions like this coming together for one temple. I would imagine everyone in this area is loving and respectful of one another. I can’t see this happening in many other places.

I can definitely understand your sincere curiosity about the blend of Buddhism, Christianity, and Taoism! The Cao Dai temple is indeed a remarkable and captivating place to visit. If you’re interested in learning more about these religions, there are plenty of informative resources available online and in books. 📚

I really enjoyed reading this post. I’ve been to Tay Ninh many times, and it’s a beautiful place. I’ve always wanted to go back and take a tour of the Cu Chi tunnels, but it’s always been hard to find a tour that’s available in English. It will be interesting to see what new tours are available now that the tunnels have been opened up to the public.

Thanks for sharing!
