Vietnam's Skyscrapers


In the wake of the 21st century, the agriculture-based economy of Vietnam is changing rapidly to accommodate the demands of globalization and urbanization. Below are 4 most impressive Vietnam’s skyscrapers that you should definitely check out while in town, listed in order of height.

Landmark 81

No. 720A Dien Bien Phu St, Ward 22, Binh Thanh District, Ho Chi Minh City

Freshly finished earlier this year by the country’s biggest corporation Vingroup, Landmark 81 has become the new face of urban Vietnam among other Vietnam’s skyscrapers.

Bitexco Financial Tower

2 Hai Trieu, Ben Thanh Ward, District 1, Ho Chi Minh City

Even though Bitexco is no longer the tallest building in Ho Chi Minh City, this lotus-shaped skyscraper still remains one of the most iconic symbols of urban Vietnam.
