Shaped like a lotus bud, Bitexco Financial Tower stands as the highest building in Vietnam that features the first observation deck in the city. American architect Carlos Zapata designed the 262 m (860 ft) tall skyscraper. By combining modern materials (steel and glass) with the distinctive shape resembling the national flower, he managed to harmonize the city's rapid economic development with its traditional roots. The observation deck with a bar on its 49th floor offers 360-degree views. The building also houses a shopping mall and a restaurant.

  • The views at the top of the tower are exceptional - just make sure you don't forget your camera- and if you don't have a head for heights; forget it.

  • For a Saturday midday it was very, very quiet at the top of the tower, pretty much all to ourselves as we walked around getting some stunning views of the city. Very affordable, and quick lift to near the top..........40th floor or something, as far as I can remember. Some history all around to read up on, in English as well, and a nice mini exhibition on Vietnamese fashion for the ladies down through the years. Definitely worth a visit and thankfully with such a lovely day we were able to see well off in the distance the huge city that is HCMC. Recommended.
  • Fancy place with office food court and a movie theater. Nothing to complain about. I mostly review food place but if you looking for review for work place. This review is not for you :3
