What Visitors Say About Bitexco Financial Tower
One of the tallest structures in Saigoon which looks a bit like the Stark tower from Avengers movie. The viewing deck on top offers panoramic views of the city and that of the snakelike Saigoon river below. It is very nice to watch the ships slowly moving down below. When we were there the visibility was a little off due to haze but still the view was pretty awesome. It costs VND250,000 for entry if I remember right.
The viewing deck is really nice. There is a bar and a restaurant that you can spend time at. We went for Christmas eve and there was a drag show and music. It when we were there it was open until hours after midnight. The view is very good at night and it is a delight to watch the lights of the night traffic. You enter the tower through the mall.
