Bitexco Financial Tower : Tallest Skycraper in Saigon

This is the tallest skyscraper in Ho Chi Minh City. It is located at Ha Trieu, Ho Tung Mao and Ngo Duc Ke Streets. If you are familiar with Benh Thanh market then you would definitely see it from there and going to the tower is just a breeze of walking.  There are 68 floors in this building excluding the 3-floor basement. This tower measures 882.56 feet and holds the record as the tallest building in Vietnam in 2010. However at present, Keangnam Hanoi Landmark Tower is now the tallest building in this country (since January 24, 2011).

This tower in not only used for office spaces and as a convention center but is also used for tourism. From a distant view, you can easily notice the helipad facility of the building, which is located on the 50th floor. Just below that floor (49th floor), there is an observation deck where visitors can see the 360-degree view of the city but visitors can’t enter this floor without buying a ticket that costs around 10 USD.
