Bitexco Skydeck - A View of Ho Chi Minh City from Above


No matter where you are in Ho Chi Minh City, the lotus-bulb-shaped 262-meter-high Bitexco Tower would never leave your sight. Interested? Hop on an adventure with i Tour Vietnam and enjoy the ride!

A Glance at Bitexco Tower

Bitexco is located right at the business hub of the city: 2 Hai Trieu, Ben Nghe Ward, District 1. Bitexco had held the title of the highest building in Ho Chi Minh since 2011, and just recently lost the title to Landmark81. Nonetheless, it still remains one of the most iconic buildings in Vietnam and the world (ranked by CNNGo).

The majority of the building are offices. 6 out of 68 floors are for retail (Icon 68). The building hosts shops, restaurants, cafes, a cinema, a helipad, and most importantly: the Bitexco Skydeck. Opening hours vary: Icon68 opens from 10 AM to 9 PM and BHD Cinema opens from 8:30 AM to 12 AM.

The Highlight of Bitexco Tower - Bitexco Skydeck

All the shopping and dining could be found elsewhere, but only Bitexco Skydeck with its incredible height on the 49th floor can offer you an extraordinary view of our dazzling city. Your eyes will be feasted on a 360-degree-view of the entire urban city, especially the lovely Saigon River.

There are telescopes and an English guide to enhance your experience. Furthermore, you can purchase traditional souvenirs, gifts, and crafts at the shop in Bitexco Skydeck.

Opening hours: Monday to Sunday, from 9:30 AM - 9:30 PM
Last tickets and entry: 45 minutes before closing time
Entrance fee: VND 200,000/person for 2 lightning rides in the fastest elevator in South East Asia and all the activities at Bitexco Skydeck

Love the view but hate the crowd?

You can always skip the Bitexco Skydeck but still be able to enjoy the view with EON51 Restaurant & Lounge on floor 50,51, and 52. They have a cafe, a bar, and a restaurant. Of course, prices are steep (from VND 99,000 a drink), but you’ll save the entrance fee! They open from 8 AM - 11:30 PM.

Conclusion on Bitexco Skydeck

We’d say the experience is somewhat comparable to that of Burj Khalifa, so don’t skip it! Try to drop by at around sunset to get a glimpse at both the city’s daytime and nighttime gowns. Read our recommendations for top attractions in Ho Chi Minh City to continue exploring the city!
