“Get up for a drink....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2014 via mobile

Decided to head up here for a drink instead of paying to go to the viewing level.
So the 52nd floor doesn't take to long to get to, a nice small bar with a few "I love Me" type peoe in there but in all fairness the drink is no more expensive Than the local pubs in Scotland.
So the views are fantastic but if you want to take pictures, the windows are not the cleanest!! Remember, it's the 52nd floor so it not going to be cleaned every week..!! Some people just expect to much..!!

My experience, get up, have a drink and enjoy the view! You will not regret it.

“Nice trip”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2014

If you are short on time in HCMC then you could miss a trip up the tower although it does have great views. The top deck was closed to normal visitors and I think it's over priced for what you get.

“smoky and expensive”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2014

We did it for the view.

$15 USD to go up to the Sky Deck, unless you can convince the door man otherwise... and $15 for a cocktail.

It would have been worth it had the windows been washed so see the amazing view clearly or even to just take a picture. I had a moment while looking at the vast expanse, I said to my husband "30-40 years ago this was the setting for Good morning Vietnam... look at it now..."

“Good view but not so great for photos”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2013 via mobile

This is the tallest building in the city so it has the best panoramic view. It offers a great overview of the city but difficult to see any particular landmarks. Also because it's indoors with glass which is not the cleanest - it doesn't offer the best place to take photos without interference of the glass reflection. Definitely not an option for night viewing! For that - you're better off at the Chill Bar where purchasing a drink is your entrance fee.

“Great view, expensive drinks”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2013

It's definitely worth a trip up to the bar to see the incredible view of the city (and lights at night). The drinks are really, really expensive - but worth it once you see the view.
