Off to the Bitexco Tower. What unbelievable views!!!! We went twice and the second time they had big photos of the surrounding area showing the changes which have taken place. The camera certainly had a workout. Well worth checking out!!!

“Room with a view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2012

We went up to the restaurant on the 50th floor and had coffee. The view is spectacular. They also have a buffet meal available here that looked quiet good. The top floors of the building are not completed yet, so the 50th floor is the highest you can go. Well worth the effort.

“Should have been our first stop”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2012

This is more of a relaxing activity. If you're the type who likes adventures more, this may not be for you. However, if you want to know Saigon visually, this is a great place to start with.

The tower was easily reachable by cab from our hotel near the Ben Tanh Market. The surroundings were very clean and modern. As soon as we stepped inside, a young receptionist warmly greeted us, sold us our tickets and pointed us to our way to the elevators.

When we got to the carpeted observation deck, there were only a number of people so we got to use one of the many binocular stands. Near it was a touch-screen monitor that reflects your current view outside and shows you information about the buildings that you see. You can take notes if you haven't done prior research to touring the city.

Make sure to go around the deck as the window panelings are angled differently. One side can let you feel how high-up you really are! Although sits are limited, you can sit on the floors and just admire the view.

If you get hungry, there's a restaurant upstairs. Although quite pricey, the desert food is good.

“A must do to appreciate the size of this city.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2012

Well worth the price of admission, don't understand why some complain about it.
My tip is go late afternoon and watch the city light up and you will get some great shots.
You have to do this to fully appreciate the size of this city.
