At a height of 262 m (68 floors) with the floor area of nearly 6,100 m2 and a total investment of 220 million dollars, Bitexco tower, Vietnam is the 3rd highest skyscraper of Vietnam and reaches the top 25 world's iconic buildings voted by CNN, helping it among Vietnam tourist attractions.

So what is inside this tallest building in Saigon? Let's list things to do in this flesh-pot “among the clouds”:

Ground floor: Shops and a garden café

The ground floor of Bitexco tower, Saigon is the easiest place to come in and out. Just after entering the tower, you will easily encounter brand sporting goods at stores like Adidas, Nike, Puma, etc.

But more specifically, there is a garden café at the foot of Bitexco. Hiding under the "shady tree" -Bitexco, Elle café stands out with natural greenery and live music every night.

The 3rd and 4th floors: Food and cinema complex

It’s a great idea to date on the third and fourth floor of Bitexco tower in Saigon on rainy days.

Couples don’t have to waste much time and also save travel expenses because they can "take care of” their stomach at Food Creative zone, and then absorb in films in a high-quality movie theater -CGV.

The 49th floor: Enjoy watching the earth and sun in Saigon

Saigon Skydeck is the place you cannot ignore when coming to Bitexco tower, Ho Chi Minh once.

To get views throughout the city with 360 degrees, you can ask a staff of the tower at the ground floor for tickets to the 49th floor.

The Bitexco tower entrance fee to come this floor is 200.000 VND (~10 USD). You will feel "shocked" at this height when viewing the whole city through a telescope.

The 51th floor: EON coffee - Coffee in the clouds

Have you ever thought to be in Bitexco financial tower to drink coffee yet? If not, then do it as soon as possible because you’ll get experience that is unwasteful.

Located on the 50th floor of Bitexco tower, EON Café will give you a perfect view while drinking coffee while seeing the city from the "cloud".

Since Bitexco café is “sky coffee” so the cheapest drink here is 120,000 VND, this seems to be more reasonable than buying a ticket to watch the city (baomoi)

The 52th floor: Strata Restaurant - Buffet at a high place

Buffet from above, have you ever tried? Buffet prices there are not cheap, approximately 820.000 VND (~37 USD) with soft drinks, but this is a reasonable price for a 5-star buffet.
