Nhut Long took advantage of going to Tay Ninh at the weekend because it only took 2.5 hours to travel from Ho Chi Minh City.
Duong Nhut Long, 28 years old, took advantage of going to Tay Ninh from Ho Chi Minh City on a weekend to change the wind. This is the third time he has come to Tay Ninh, love this land because it is easy to move from Ho Chi Minh City and has many attractions. Below is the schedule to go to Tay Ninh for a day, with the means of transportation being a motorbike.
The distance from Ho Chi Minh City to Tay Ninh is about 100 km long, if you ride a motorbike, it will take about 2.5 hours. At 5:30 am, he departed from Thu Duc City, Ho Chi Minh City to Tay Ninh via Binh Duong Boulevard. “I chose this route because the road is wide, there are few big cars, going to the section of Dau Tieng will go through the rubber forest , the foggy morning will be very romantic,” he said.
7:45 am, Long arrived in Tay Ninh city, chose to have breakfast at Ba Toi noodle shop on Ngo Gia Tu street. Long shared a long-standing restaurant, crowded with locals and tourists, although crowded but fast service. You can order noodles or noodles, or both. “The broth is rich, with a lot of meat, the noodles are big and sweet, priced at 40,000 – 60,000 VND, free iced tea,” he commented.
At 8:15, after having breakfast, he went to Tay Ninh Holy See to visit because this point is located in the center, convenient to move. He was impressed with this religious building. “The building has a very unique architecture,” he said. Visitors can come here to visit at any time of the day, but should choose the time of the ceremony is 12h. This is the time when everyone can admire the whole formal ceremony of Cao Dai religion, if you are a person who likes to learn about culture and religion.
At 9:15, Long left the Holy See to visit the city center and visit Go Ken Pagoda, with a beautiful and majestic statue of Buddha. This is also the place he impressed and found that not many tourists know when it comes to Tay Ninh. After checking-in, he moved to the Ba Den mountain tourist cable car area . Long’s experience is that it is better to buy tickets on the online application first, cheaper than buying directly and when you arrive, just scan the QR code, very quickly. Here, he was able to see the 72 m high Buddha statue on the roof of the South.
Long get off the cable car at 13:00, take pictures around the station platform and move to Dau Tieng lake for lunch. According to him, such a time allocation is reasonable, otherwise it will be dark if we don’t return to Ho Chi Minh City. The road to Ho Chi Minh City to plant rubber trees is empty, so it will be dangerous not to return in time.
Along the way, he stopped at Nui Lo restaurant, although located in Dau Tieng, Binh Duong, but next to Tay Ninh, tourists take advantage of visiting here a lot. After eating and drinking, Long went to the campsite by Dau Tieng lake to visit and take pictures, then started moving back to Ho Chi Minh City at 16:30, arriving at 18:30.
Nhut Long went in a group of 3 people, the total cost was about 800,000 VND per person. Expenses include gas for about 250,000 VND per motorbike, cable car ticket to the top of Ba Den mountain 430,000 VND, breakfast 50,000 VND. The cost of the trip is mainly the cable car and eating grilled chicken at Nui Lo restaurant, priced at 390,000 VND per chicken.
Long’s regret is that there are places that you want to go but can’t go, such as a lonely tree in the middle of the field, in the rainy season, it’s flooded and you can’t check-in; Ma Thien Lanh rock lake could not find the way in, and the ancient tower of Chop Mac is quite far away, he will save it for the next trip.
