Since its opening to the public in 2011, the Saigon Skydeck has become one of the city’s best spots for soaking up scenic views. Upon entering the building, an elevator takes visitors to the observation deck in less than 35 seconds. The viewing area features interactive screens with information on various city landmarks, and the space often hosts local art exhibitions. While it’s possible to visit the tower independently, many night tours of Saigon include a visit to the Skydeck for a chance to see the city illuminated. Combine your Skydeck visit with a dinner cruise along the Saigon River, a food walking tour with a local, or a guided nighttime ride on a vintage Vespa.
