Why Bitexco Financial Tower is special ?
Bitexco Financial Tower is a true example of innovation and design. To help redefine the commercial space of Vietnam, Bitexco Group has assembled the very best international development team with a proven international track record and experience in constructing some of the world’s tallest buildings.
Inspired by Vietnam’s national flower – the lotus, Bitexco Financial Tower is designed to represent the energy and aspiration of its people. A true urban masterpiece that is more than a structure of glass and steel, it envokes beauty and progress as it rises above the culturally rich Ho Chi Minh City. Designed by renowned American Architect Carlos Zapata, this 68-storey tower houses offices, shops, restaurants, and a helipad. CNNGo recently ranked the building fifth in their listing of the world’s 20 most iconic skyscrapers.
What to explore at Bitexco Financial Tower?
Six of the Bitexco Financial Tower floors have been given over to retail space although the main draw here is not shopping, rather the views. The public observation deck on the 49th floor is reached by using one of the tower’s 16 elevators which can reach any floor regardless of level within 35 seconds.
The tower is also well-known for its Bitexco Vertical Run where competitors race from the ground floor lobby to the Sky Deck. The race covers 178 metres with the latest record standing at 4 minutes and 51 seconds – held by Germany’s Vertical World Circuit Champion Thomas Dold.
The Sky Deck delivers breathtaking 360 degree views across the city and the Saigon River. Visitors can also use one of the binocular stands to get a closer look. Great views are also enjoyed from the 50th and 51st-floor restaurants, particularly at night when the metropolis below glitters above. There are also local art exhibitions held on the Sky Deck, where you can also purchase souvenirs, including textiles and locally produced tea.
