With design concept is taken from the shape of a lotus bud, the Vietnam national flower, Bitexco Financial Tower is not merely a building which is covered in glass and steel, but also a symbol of beauty and the rapid development of Ho Chi Minh City economy, a key economic region in Vietnam. Bitexco Financial Tower is a typical example for creativity and unique design. One of the tower highlights is the first observation in the city at 49th floors.

You can see bitexico financial tower from district 1. It overlooks the centre of Saigon and is impossible to miss. This skydeck takes you ~50 floors up and gives you a 360 degree view of the city. The building is a source of intense national pride and as such the service provided in the facility is 5 star. I felt like I should've been in a suite instead of my tourist clothes.

LOGISTICS
Open from 10am to 10pm at night this costs 200,000 dong (around 10US) per person to go into. It is within walking distance of district 1.

PROS
* Amazing service at this place. It's very 5 star and almost slightly posh.
* Amazing 360 degree views of the city of saigon. Around the circular viewing area there are ~6 computer displays which show the view you are seeing. Each is labelled with notes on what each of the buildings which you can pull up on the computer and read. It is very informative.
* A few information boards on the history of the tower and saigon itself which are very informative.

CONS
* The cost is considered a little expensive for saigon standards. However after the experience I can certainly see where the money is going.

CONCLUSIONS
Very good experience. Can do day or night and I would recommend doing it as a part of a walking tour of the city centre.

This Is an amazing view of all of Ho Chi Minh City. It Is a bit pricey - but it is worth the money. Never expected such a tall modern building in Vietnam.

It Is an easy walk from all of the big hôtels in the center of town.

Interesting to see all of the historic and modern buildings from this great vantage point.

Nice observation deck for seeing Ho Chi Minh City but only on the 49th floor and nothing made it stand out from other observation decks that I have seen in cities around the world. Reasonably priced, would recommend overall.

What's good about HCMC is that there arent really much high-rising buildings. There are alot of 10-15 storey buildings but seeing one tall tower by the skyline right from the Reunification Palace is just cute. Nothing really special about the architecture (unlike the Petronas of Malaysia).
