“Good experience, but a bit expensive.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

It was a nice experience to have visited here and see how Saigon looks like at night viewing from the top. However, I find the entrance fee to be quite pricy. In the end of our sight seeing, I was like, 'Uh...Is that it? Where else can we go? Is that all I will get from the 200,000 VND that I paid for?'.

I actually did not recommended this place to my friends who will visit Ho Chi Minh soon. I kinda regretted my visit here and thought I should have just spent that 200k VND on shopping.

“Great experience, not cheap!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012 via mobile

There is so much to see from the top of the tower and it is really great to see it from so high. However for this area of the world the price was a lot for what it was,

“A great view of the City!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

Worth the expense to get a great view especially on a clear day. Good wall mounted explanations and photos of how the building was conceived and built.

“What a view of this wonderful city”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

Visited on a week day, not a queue in sight. Very cost friendly to enter. Great view from Skydeck. Full 360 degree view, even though there was a fair bit of smog. Highly recommend.

If you want to have a great view of Siagon worth a trip to the top . For a great experience try the Alto bar at night great views of Siagon , then you can go down to Hogs Breath Cafe on the ground for some good food and a few cold beers , great sports bar , friendly staff.
