Bitexco Financial Tower is a relatively new and tall building in Ho Chi Minh City. It is 262 meters high and has 68 floors. It has been open to the public at the end of 2010. It contains shopping malls, cinemas, restaurants, conference rooms, etc. It looks like bamboo shoot. The design concept of the building is taken from Lotus shape, the national flower of Vietnam. The observation deck is located on the 49th floor of the Bitexco Financial Tower, which is located below the tarmac. On the first floor of the Bitexco Financial Tower, there is a dedicated entrance and a direct elevator to take you to overlook the day and night views of Ho Chi Minh City from a rare angle. You can take an elevator that rises 7 meters per second to reach the observation deck in half a minute. The design of the floor-to-ceiling glass can give you a panoramic view of Ho Chi Minh City and its surrounding area. The building is quite close to the Saigon River. Standing on the observation deck, you will feel that the view of the Saigon River is unobstructed. Standing on the observation deck overlooking the Saigon River, you can also feel its magnificence.
When you are visiting the observation deck at night, there is another scene. The large and small buildings are also lit with neon lights, showing a gorgeous night scene. The night view of Ho Chi Minh City has a lot of changes in lighting levels. The closer it is to the first county, the brighter the lights are. It is quite interesting to use a telescope to find the surrounding French colonial buildings that are illuminated by the lights. The light will also change the color from time to time to add visual effects to the guests. Here, tourists can also buy souvenirs, handicrafts, special products, and there are bars and cafes for guests to entertain at the souvenir shop. The Odei museum allows guests to appreciate and learn more about traditional Vietnamese clothing.
City landmarks often become a benchmark for the economic development level of a city or country. Ho Chi Minh’s Bitexco Financial Tower also seems to announce to the world that Vietnam has not only the landscape, but also the economy that is gradually taking off.
