The Bitexco Financial Tower, located in the heart of Ho Chi Minh City’s business and entertainment district, is the most exciting commercial property development undertaken in Vietnam to date and it quickly becomes one of most Vietnam Popular Destinations.
World renowned American architect Carlos Zapata, the creative mastermind behind Bitexco Financial Tower, drew inspiration for this skyscraper’s unique shape from Vietnam’s national flower, the Lotus. To the Vietnamese, the lotus is a symbol of purity, commitment and optimism.
Built at a time of unprecedented growth for the Vietnamese economy, it is designed to represent the energy and aspirations of the country’s people and is an iconic embodiment of the new and dynamic Vietnam.
In many Vietnam Popular Destinations, it is a true example of forward-thinking and design. Re-defining the future of commercial space in Vietnam, this 262-meter tower also has a six-storey retail podium. The property has more than 37,000 square meters of office space and over 8,000 square meters of retail space.
On level 50, 464 square meters are available for a casual dining restaurant, while on level 51 there is 568 square meters designated for a fine dining restaurant. On level 52 an Executive VIP & Bar Lounge is planned where tenants and their guests can wind down after a day’s work. A helipad, Vietnam’s first, is located on Level 52 and an Observation Deck on Level 49 offers sweeping 360‐degree panoramic views of the entire city and the nearby Saigon River.
To develop this project to the highest international standards, Bitexco Group assembled the very best international development team with a proven track record and experience in constructing some of the world’s tallest buildings. The tower was officially inaugurated on October 31, 2010. This towel, which is called one of best Vietnam Popular Destinations in Ho Chi Minh City, rank at number 5 in the top 20 world’s most iconic skyscrapers elected by CNNGo. In December 2011, Leslie E. Robertson Associates received an Excellence in Structural Engineering Award for this project from NCSEA.
In conclusion, in many Vietnam Popular Destinations, it is the only destination that you can have a full view of Ho Chi Minh City. Hope this post can help you when planning tour to visit by yourself. Have a safe and happy trip in our beautiful country. And Happy Holidays, everyone.
