A great view from the skybar. The drinks are a bit expensive for Vietnam, but not more than you would expect from a bar with the location. The interior could use a makeover, though. The staff was friendly and it was relatively quiet when we visited at around 5 pm.

We chose to go to the Cafe level for free, rather than pay for the sky deck. Nice views. Four ice creams cost about $40.00 aud - same price as paying for the sky deck. I probably wouldn't bother with this, as the city is smoggy, and it feels very "western and unauthentic" to be hermetically sealed in a high... More

We decided to go up to the sky deck as we could see it from our roof top bar ay the Grand hotel, we walked to the building and found that we had to pay £6 each to go to the sky deck, we really enjoyed it, I bought some fridge magnets while we were up at the top.

It's a bit pricey by Saigon standards and I'm sure there are other places to get a good view but we weren't disappointed, especially when a dark thunderstorm rolled in over the river. I recommend going at the start of your HCMC stay to help get your bearings.

Beautiful 360 view of the city. I was there after dark so you could still see the hustling in the city. Well worth the price of admission. They have a club there too. I stayed long enough to have a few overpriced drinks but i was there for the views and atmosphere

What can I say.... ticket is 200.000 dong, espresso and juice at the bar 350.000 incl. fee and tax. So that's about 14 euro for two drinks :). After the drinks we visit the panorama deck. Don't hesitate to go, it's always nice to see the city from above.

I enjoyed the Saigon Skydeck. The views were great. however the restaurant was insanely expensive even by western standards. I was glad I went, but wouldn't have been upset if I couldn't have gone. For me this was a little bit half and half for me.

Do drop by before 6pm to see the sunset and see how it transforms into city of lights at night! The cafe on the upper floor was not really worth it to go. Price bit pricey with less choices of food and beverages selection.

I paid 200,000 VND and spent over an hour admiring the 360 degree views of HCMC city. There are free telescopes to use and useful information dotted around. It wasn't busy at all when I went. I went up on a very clear day during the day time and was able to see really far. I'll probably go up again... More

A must see, it offers 360 stunning views of Saigon, cheap to go up and not crowded. Also round the corner is a very cool vietnamese market more of a road than anything else but untouched by tourism which is nice!
