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.

A very popular tourist attraction in Ho Chi Minh city in Vietnam. People flock to this place to get the best view of the city from the top. There are cafes and bars where one can have drinks and beverages and enjoy the splendid view of entire city from different directions. In addition, there is no fee to go up, which means one can enjoy the top view without paying any money, however, payment is required for food and beverages. There are people to give directions to go to the top.
The best spot for a great city view. You can see Ho Chi Minh city from above and you can also get great pictures for city sunset - go there at afternoon. The world of Heineken tour was great. We enjoyed the Heineken history and how the beer is being made through the 4D ride. :) You can also get your personalized bottle with your name and more activities during this tour. Mostly, when the night came, I really enjoyed the city lights of Ho Chi Minh. This was my last stop for the 2 week backpacking and it was a great experience ending my travel with the sky deck and world of Heineken tour.
