Although Bitexco Financial Tower stands at “only” 262 metres, CNNGo ranked it #5 in their list of the world’s 20 most iconic skyscrapers, as its unique tower design is inspired by the shape of the distinctive lotus, Vietnam’s national flower.

While you’re on the Saigon Sky Deck, it’s a good idea to wrap up your day with a tour of The World of Heineken, the only such experience for Heineken fans without having to travel to its headquarters in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.
