THAT’S A BEAUTIFUL SIGHT!
- Address: Bitexco Financial Tower – 2 Hai Trieu, Ben Nghe
The Bitexco Tower is one of Saigon’s most iconic buildings. Most likely, you will see the impressive skyscraper from different places in town. This used to be Saigon’s tallest building until recently, and the views from the top are glorious, probably the best views of Saigon’s skyline. You can opt to go for the Skydeck (which you’ll need to pay an entrance fee) or you can go to the café on the 52nd floor and have a drink while enjoying the spectacular views.
Whichever option you go for you’ll be amazed at the sights of the city from above.
River sunrises and sunsets
- Address: Thu Thiem Bridge – Thu Thiem Bridge, District 2
If you grab a map you will notice how the city is surrounded by canals, creeks and branches of Saigon’s river. As a matter of fact, one of the most popular images of the city is the one with the view of skyscrapers and landmarks from the Saigon river. There are plenty of spots to catch a beautiful sunset while enjoying the views of the city but our favourite one is from Thu Thiem Bridge. This colossal bridge is located in District 2, just 15 minutes away from downtown. You will find the bridge very calm at dawn with only a few early risers witnessing the city as it emerges from the horizon. In the evening, lots of young lovers head to the bridge for the traditional Saigonese date. When the sun is finally gone, the views and the city lights reflect over the river creating the perfect atmosphere for a romantic date.
