It wasn’t my first visit to Vietnam or Ho Chi Minh City, so I didn’t have an exact itinerary this time. I’ve done some of the must-do and must-visit spots in the city from the Water Puppet Show to War Remnants Museum on my previous 2-week trip to Vietnam.
So instead, I just tried to wing it when I was there. And that’s when I decided to stop by Bitexco Financial Tower after strolling around District 1 on my first day in the city.
To be fair, I started late at around 1 PM on my first day. And since I didn’t have a fixed itinerary about what I had to do or visit, I decided to just go to some coffee shop and some cafe. Of course, I had ca phe sua da, because ca phe sua da is life in Vietnam. 😛
I wandered around the area until around 3 PM, I decided to just go to Bitexco Financial Tower. Bitexco Saigon Skydeck seems to be one of the places on the must-visit list in Vietnam. But if I gotta be honest with you, in the beginning, I wasn’t really interested in visiting the place.
I always thought that it was the kind of place that is overhyped and probably overpriced too. I didn’t even do any research about the entrance fee in advance. I went go-show for this, and I’m glad I did.
