SAIGON SKYDECK BITEXCO - Dist. 1
Open to the public since 2011, the Saigon Skydeck sits on the 49th floor of the the Bitexco Financial Tower, a 68-floor skyscraper measuring in at a height of 262 meters (861 feet). The tower also houses Vietnam’s first helipad, designed to resemble a lotus, Vietnam’s national flower.
Guests will board the high-speed elevators (you can get from the ground floor to the top floor in less than 35 seconds!) to reach the observation deck. Apart from the spectacular 360-degree view of the city, guests can also interact with screens offering up interesting facts about the landmarks seen at various points in the city below their feet. An English-speaking guide will also be available on-site to offer more insights about the tower and the city. Local art exhibitions may also be found at the Skydeck, depending on the time of year, and there is a gift shop offering sales of locally produced tea and textiles.
The tower is also home to several fine dining restaurants, a cinema, and a shopping center, perfect for some post-Skydeck entertainment before you exit the tower.
