Choose The View Rooftop Bar thinking as it is in the backpacker area it would be cheaper but surprised to see it isn't! However Happy Hour prices are buy two drinks & get one free! I was on my own & didn't want 3 drinks...More

I have been here twice. Once with family and another with friends. On both occasions the service was good and the atmosphere very relaxed. Great views. A good place to get away from the hustle le and bustle of the streets below.

I LOVED this place. This was a fantastic experience, situated on the busy backpacker's street, you can really soak up the atmosphere of Ho Chi Minh up on this rooftop bar. I genuinely believe this is one of my highlights of Vietnam. Food was excellent,...More

It was a great experience. Good spot to hang out. Quite expensive as the place is really croweded with foreigners. Credit card payment is accepted. Kitchen closes at 10pm and bar closes at 12:45am. Staffs are also very friendly.

Lovely fantastic bar with beautiful views. Highly recommended if you want to chill and have a chat with your friends. Clover was so polite and friendly and Jenny’s hospitality was five star. Please visit.

We went here at night while ordering a drink where I ordered a mocktail while my mother ordered a smoothie, while enjoying the view especially at night where the lights are gleaming. Price was just okay but not too expensive.

  • This restaurant is at Duc Vuong Hotel
The View Rooftop Bar is located on the rooftop of Duc Vuong Hotel. There is no better way to experience Ho Chi Minh City than from a lofty rooftop with buildings and streaming cars spread out far beneath you. But some bars in Vietnam’s biggest city are now charging sky high prices to go with the sky high view. That’s why The View rooftop bar at Duc Vuong Hotel is such a great place for a drink: prices for a beer start from just 20,000 VND ($1 US), and the panorama from the ninth floor takes in the full cityscape of Ho Chi Minh for some great photographs. Located on the backpacker street of Bui Vien, The View rooftop bar is easy to find; it is housed atop one of the tallest buildings on the street.The bar is spread out across the entirety of the roof and split into two main sections providing plenty of seating. In addition, there is a sort of tree house structure made out of wood and an indoor ‘party room’ with disco lights (although this is almost always empty). The most pleasant part of the bar is the area stretching off to the right as from here there is the clearest view of Bitexco Tower and the neighbouring skyscrapers of Ho Chi Minh City’s financial centre. Wherever you look in The View rooftop bar you will see colourful strips of neon lights and plenty of trees, shrubs and flowers; like its Christmastime in a garden centre! It’s a charming and easygoing interior which matches the vibe of Bui Vien Street perfectly.Beers for $1 and cocktails for $3 is unheard of at any other rooftop bar in Ho Chi Minh City so if you want to capture a breathtaking background but don’t want to break the bank The View Rooftop Bar at the Duc Vuong Hotel should be your first choice. It must be said that service at The View is excellent and the English speaking staff are happy to chat and offer advice about where to go in Ho Chi Minh. They also serve a reasonable menu of western and Vietnamese standards but ultimately it’s the cheap cocktails that keep people coming back for more.
